Having just bought some iems pre xmas, my finger slipped online and I've joined the Grado club as well. Had demoed 325i's 6 months ago but they kept cutting out with the shops quarter inch adapter to my iBasso. Hearing they now had a 3.5mm jack, I listened again and have now bought the 325e. Only had brief listen but appreciate their open sound and naturalness. Just hope they don't get more refined with use, I loved the attacking 325i sound!

Grado really don't do themselves any favours do they. And the more times goes on the more they seem to be revealing themselves as arguably the most self-serving, ignorant headphone company of our time.

 

When you look at the facts what I've just said holds quite a bit of weight.

 

I LOVE the Grado sound, and I believe I always will, but their QC is pitiful.

 

For those who are content with their technicolored Grado hybrids - I'm happy for you, sincerely, I am - but for those who are annoyed about not getting what they paid for - you have EVERY right to be annoyed.

 

First, I applaud you for having the courage to write a +1 post right after mine, because I seem to be part of the VERY small minority that doesn't like the way Grado is conducting their buisness these days.

I believe it is not always the manufacturer's fault of sub-par QC, but more of the local distributors of the brands who collect all the "returns" and re-direct to the retail market at lower prices instead of returning to the manufacturers.

 

So that "Grado" salesperson mentioned by stacker45 was possibly buying all those "returned goods" from stores and reselling them.

 

borrego, you got iy wrong buddy, let me clear it up for you, my GS1000 had a cosmetic issue, so my salesman called Grado's represetative for Québec, Mr. Michel Girard (now retired), and informed him of the situation. Mr Girard brought 2 new pairs of GS1000 for me to chose from. After comparing the 3 pairs, mine turned out to be the one with the least apparent cosmetic issues, so in the end I decided to keep mine, and learned to live with the fact that when you buy Grado headphones some issues are to be expected.

 

I guess I like the way they sound, more than I dislike the way they sometimes look.

Stacker45, it might be time for you to go to another shop? biggrin.gif Peace man.. smily_headphones1.gif

 

The store I do buisness with is Fillion, a first class, 3rd generation familly owned buisness, just like Grado.

 

Someone has to have been living Under a rock, not to be aware of Grado's sometimes sketchy build quality. But now they have taken it to a whole new level with those Frankeinstein jobs floating around.

 

potkettleblack made a comment about Grado being ''self serving'', and ESL-1 disagreed with that comment, well, when a company is assembling headphones with whatever parts that fits they have laying around, instead of keeping them as spare parts for their respective models, I tend to agree with potkettleblack's point of view.

 

I sincerely hope that Grado will stop with all this nonsense, because it is certainly not indicative of a serious company, enough with the Frankeinsteins already!

Seems to be really a QC issue stacker45. Those woods are really hard to perfect, especially at that size!
