Will give them a shot Billson if I manage to find them on display in Beats dominated Glasgow! :D I was in my local HiFi shop today and managed to try Grado from SR-60i up to SR-325IS. Played 320kbps stream from Google Music unlimited on my Xperia Z, test tracks been Daft Punk - Aerodynamic, Ellie Goulding - Dead in the water, ZaZ - Je Veux, Spor - Aztec, Lana Del Ray - Videogames, Inglide - Let Me Love You, Gareth Emery feat Lucy Sanders - Sanctuary, Mozart - Eine Kleine Nacht Music, Apocalyptica - Nothing Else Matters. And you know what, I think I`ll rob a bank (I`m a student) and get Grado 325IS, Expensive, but a solid phones to keep. Going to DL some FLACs and making appointment to listen to HD tracks to see if there will be difference when played from same device. Any alternative suggestions to try if I stretch my budget to £375/$600. Also small(ish), on ear, no amp required. Thanks! BTW reason why I`m so keen on open back is that I have OCD, I am obsessed with safety, so I cant close my eyes when I listen to music at home, as I become terribly scared, and feeling that I`m not in control and I can`t hear what`s around me drives me insane! So open back please. Cheers!
