Closer to the black line means a more "neutral" and flat sound signature +/-db. For instance look at the ER4-S.
$^&#^%**** --- Stupid new "e" line. While I'm excited, I can no longer say that I own/have owned every single current Grado model. Is the, say, GS1000i really that different from the GS1000 or GS1000e? Or is it just a bunch of marketing BS that Grado had to/wanted to "refresh" their lineup after 5 years (the "i" came out in 2009 I believe).
MAIN QUESTION WITHOUT READING THROUGH 36 PAGES OF THREADS: ARE THERE MAJOR DIFFERENCES SONICALLY (between the "i" and the "e)/BUILD QUALITY WISE? IS THERE REALLY NEW TECHNOLOGY?
Can anyone with multiple models of both sets (e.g. GS1000i vs GS1000e and/or even a SR225i vs SR225e) confirm the differences? The "i" and the non-"i" didn't post much difference to me imo. I kinda don't want to upgrade all my Grado's right now ugh...
Thanks in advance!
i post this in my post above, but im still curious about this, my grado sr60 broke. and i dont live in the us. im thinking is there a way to fix it myself and how often does this happen in a grado...
so what happen is, all of a sudden, i noticed the left channel has intermittent sound today. sometimes it sounds normal and sometimes there's just no sound. i tried to check out the cables and connector a bit, and i found out that the cable leading up to the left driver, caused this.
when i hold the left-side cable backwards to the direction my shoulder it sounds perfectly fine, but when the left cable is position forwards, then the sound disappear.
is it normal for this to happen...? is it just the connector between the driver and the cable inside the left channel that got loose or is it smthn else...? is it possible for me to solder it myself?
