Grado e Series - Page 306

post #4576 of 4590

Have any PS500e owners tried the G-cush on their cans and also have heard a PS1000 (e or normal). I'm wondering how much futher the PS1000 takes you beyond this combination. If anyone could chime it'd be appreciated. I enjoy the PS500e a lot, and I tried my G-cush with them which sounded good to me but the treble was too pronounced for my tastes.

That's not the problem...people just need to be willing to send them in.

Just want to thank the enthusiastic Grado fans that post on this thread for (unknowingly) helping this new Grado dealer decide which models to stock. There are simply too many models in the entire lineup for me to carry them all, so had to go about choosing the "sweet spots" without the ability to hear them all first hand (despite being in Brooklyn - can you believe that?). Your feedback here has been so helpful. 

 

Some of your favorites may be missing, but here is where we ended up: SR80e, SR325e, RS2e, PS500e, GS1000e (and GR8e & GR10e).  I cannot weigh in on the RS1e controversy, but trusted you guys enough to avoid that model (not because it may sound bad, but because most seem to agree that it strays the farthest from the Grado house sound).

 

I can say after a couple weeks of auditioning the models we now have, that the famous Grado "you are there" liveliness of the midrange and treble is addictive. That aspect of their sound gets so much attention that I was worried that some of these might be shy on bass, but am so pleasantly surprised by the weight and punch of the bass response. It helps counterbalance the treble, which in older models, I sometimes found to be too hot.  I commend Grado for taming just a bit of that treble sharpness while keeping the great midrange and adding more bass authority with the new e series. Well done!

 

And thanks again, Head-Fi'ers.

well, when i first started looking for a new can, i was wanting to get something closed, while that's still a possibility, its kinda on the back burner right now

i would like another planar, at the top of that list would be the el-8 as i haven't heard it yet, or maybe get another hifiman.

of course, as i've said before, i might go for something totally out of left field

Checking out the Grado threads was a wise decision on your part. I also can't argue with your choice of models to keep in stock. I'm willing to bet that among those 7 models, the SR80e, SR325e, and the RS2e will be your bread and butter models.

 

It's hard to imagine that the RS1i went from being the most popular Grado model, to being the least popular. The worst thing about it is that Grado doesn't seam to want to do anything about it.

I'll echo what Stacker said...very smart to monitor the threads here on head-fi. Those sound like fantastic choices to me!

Thats a good idea to try out the EL-8 being you've never heard this model before and knowing you like the Audeze sound signature.

I am thinking of buying the SR325e. Is it a good choice for rock and metal music? Do you guys have any other recommendations around this price range? Thanks

Seems too be one of the most highly recommended (e) series Grado.

I myself have never heard them, but I do own the 325is for 3+ years, and I love them with all Genres.

I doubt you will have any regrets as long as you like the Grado sound signature.

for rock, yes. i don't listen to metal so i don't know.
recommendation on comfort aspect, probably a lot, recommendation on sound for rock, at <$300 not really. 325e is the best you can buy.
