Grado Sr325is/Alessandro M2si vs. Fidelio X1 vs. he-400 - Page 3

post #31 of 35

Typically:

 

Bowl pads have little bass and enhance the treble response.

Flat pads bring out the bass and even out the response, but lack soundstage.

G cush pads have little bass but bigger soundstage.

 

There are a few more pads like Headphile C Pads (expensive though) or Sennheiser yellow pads that fit grados.

From this thread, I was informed that Alessandro MS2i has a wider sound stage/3D imaging but less detail than Grado SR325is.

 

May I know how they're (MS2i & SR325is) comparing to AKG K550 in term of sound stage/3D imaging and detail?

They're completely different beasts. First of all, the AKG are closed, Grados are open. The AKG is good with classical music, they're pretty laid back. Detail and soundstage will be decent, but they will lack the dynamism of the Grados. What kind of music do you listen to?

I plan to use this cans with tube amp. My taste of music is very wide spectrum from jazz, vocal, to pop, rock, new wave....etc.

Well, in my opinion the AKGs are good with anything acoustic (unamped, not electronic), but the Grados will be better with everything else.
