Hello,

 

For rocks music, I highly, highly [yes, twice xD] recommend Grado! Given you already have a tube amp, it will be a great benefit for the Grados as it adds warm to the sound and making it a more energetic headphone to listen to. Not sure about the output impedance though

 

 

Hope it helps,

Billson

Out Of the box, the clamping force may be too high and pads can be too stiff. What I recommend you to do is to streth the headband or put it over some thick books to release the clamping and wash the pads (remove it first) with warm water (not too hot). They feel much more comfortable after following these two steps in my opinion.

Sr225i, if you want a new pair. I think you could get SR325is used for about 200 euro (there were plenty sr325is < 200$ + shipping + Vat <200 euro on the For Sale part of this forum).

I wouldn't call Grado neutral, if you have a chance, try auditioning any of the Grado before buying.

The lower end Grado will work too if you wish to know. The DT990 is not a bad choice either :)
