I found reference to the article in "Stereo" at their website, but couldn't find anywhere to read the article without spending almost six Euro. Do you know of anywhere online I can read this for free (legally)?

I don't see how it could personally, I think Mr. Grado probably meant it as far as driver placement is concerned.

My question is does the fact that the GS/PS models having a high number of conductors have anything to do with them retaining the 1/4 inch jack?

sorry if i came off that way, not my intention, just for me, personally i think a little debate is good, its how we learn here, but after everyone chimes in a round or two

and to  its clear we are going to have a different opinion, it just seems to me its time to move on, and that's on me,

i get caught up in trying to win the debate/discussion, justify my opinion, but we can go on forever doing that, i can anyway

so apologies all around i really don't want to be the cause of any discourse

That's a darned good question. One I never considered.

It's all good Mr. Willin. Ultimately we're all here for the same reasons.

Scientifically, that would make no sense whatsoever. Even a higher number of conductors should have no impact on sound quality in fact.

 

Audiophilically, however...

I don't think so as this is the august edition, and flatrate abo's for mags cost money as well.

Hey, I wasn't even postulating a hypothesis, just making an uneducated guess. My dad always said there is no such thing as a wrong question, just incorrect answers.

This aspect was a decision to further improve performance across the whole line of new product.

That doesn't seem especially relevant to the plug sizes: Even if they changed the plating process, presumably they used it on the 1/4" PS1ke and GS1ke plugs. So it doesn't explain the change.

No Way!!!!!!  The new e series have an 1/8" plug?......lol....I'm kidding!!!!!!  :beerchug:

 

Enjoy davi3z!!!!!!!

 

Been pad rollin' quite a bit on the 125e and really love their sig.  No harshness whatsoever.

 

 

I personally like the 1/8" termination.  Walked around quite a bit with the Clip Zip and 125e today (can't do that with my SR225, RS2 or RS1i without the adapter that puts strain on the headphone jack with the weight).

 

My .02!!!

 

Cheers!
