I successfully ordered the SR40. But then they didn't expire as fast as I thought... Seems Grado won't ever release the SR40e (or 'a' or 'u' or 'o' for that matter).

It must have been break-in or source, because "harsh" is definitely not a word I would use to describe the 500e. Neutrel, refined amazing clarity are much better adjectives, IMO.
