Great choice in my opinion :beerchug: I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the PS500e.  Out of curiosity which Grado's have you listen to at this point?


Unfortunately, I have only owned the RS80e, so I won't be able to compare apples to apples.

What I can say is that the 80e sounded great. Vocals really shined on them but I felt like they were a little thin on bass. That said, I don't particularly like a lot of bass...I listen to mostly rock and some classic rock.

I recently auditioned the M50x and found them way too bass heavy for my likes...so that might give you a baseline.

Does anyone have any information regarding U.K availability of the e-series?

I've also been trying to find out, but no luck so far.

 

I might try emailing Amour Home, who distribute Grado in the UK

Thanks sinnottj! I've also contacted alessandro music to see if they'll be releasing an e version of their headphones and I'll let you know if they get back to me.

I decided to cancel my order for the SR60e and order the SR80e instead. I've already owned the SR60i and loved it but I figured I should upgrade a tad bit. I spoke to 4oourears today and the nice woman on the phone said the 60e's and 80e's are shipping out today. Just a heads, for those who had their order on backorder. I can't wait :)

Not to mention a bass line... ;)

I would be surprised if you found the PS500e too bass heavy.  When people say the PS500 is bass heavy they usually mean for a Grado it is.  But if you think it is to much then you could always exchange them for the RS1e within the 30 day allowance.

Sorry, didn't mean to offend... potentially amusing fact, an anagram for "ultra lame" is "aural melt"...

Back to the topic at hand, for anyone that has received an "e" model, has Grado reset the serial numbers or carried on the sequence from the "i" series? What did they do when transitioning from the original models to the "i" series?

No offense taken.

 

No ears melting here unless I use T90.

They continued the sequence of numbers from the "i" series, but added a "-" after the regular serial number then a new number for your "e" series.  So for example my PS500e serial number is 43**-6 meaning mine was the sixth one made in this series.

The SR225e is sounding more dynamic than the earlier model. I'm not sure it's for the better yet though. I took delivery of them today.

I've got less than 5 hours on them so far and yet they sound light years above the burned-in MS1i's I just sold. 

 

I'm hoping the highs will subside soon and the low end will show up to the party. Considering the paradigm that the 325is went through I have full confidence that Grado has done well with the 'enhancement' of the entire line.
