I'd forgotten the ability of these cans to convey that raw energy and make the sound literally leap out of the drivers and attack your ear drums. The low end is simply marvelous for drums and bass guitars and its ability to reproduce stringed instruments is stunning.



Great, so glad you are enjoying them so much so quickly. Having owned the PS500 and now PS500e be aware that these more than most Grados really benefit from break in time. With both of mine they really started to show their stuff at 50 hours and at 100 hours had arrived. They will improve throughout the whole spectrum, the best is yet to come.

Congrats and enjoy, I also find them a real favorite among the Grados and are quite the value (a typical Grado trait and tradition).

the 225 is a great can....the best grado has to offer from the lesser build quality of Grados....they sound great.

The PS's may just be his Grado preference, and what he likes best, which is all fine/good , but IMO/IME not a very good statement about "getting the Grado sound until he heard the PS". :smile: 

You are getting the true Grado sound with the 325is's.

As someone fairly new to Grado I like the PS, SR, and HF series.  I haven't heard the RS and GS series yet.  Looking for good deals this holiday season on those series while trying to resist the SR-325 as that has my curiosity too.  Then there are these Magnum X drivers I want to hear too.  Never ending saga....     

 

I just sold the Magnum X, just like my MS2e more, it's so smooth especially at the top... but then again I like them more than any grado/alessandro I've owned (which is all below the GS1000). MS2e is the sweet spot for my ears ;)

I love my MS2i's, they are nicely rolled off at the high end of the spectrum, making them comfortable for long listening sessions, oh, and the G-Cush help out with comfort a lot too tongue.gif. They are great for the office biggrin.gif

Yes, i'm very excited to hear how they develop over time. Out of the box they are fantastic so 50-100 hours from now they should be even more fantastic! The problem now is i'm getting the itch to try the PS1000's lol.
