Oh I know, my post wasn't directed at you or anything. Just saying, scientifically, the number of conductors does not matter in the choice of jack size (or at all, in fact, so long as a proper gauge is used).

Come at me bro'. Just kidding! No I was trying to get some information. For as much money as I've spent on this audio crap my knowledge base about how things are constructed and put together is, in a word, pitiful.

What change are we now talking about?, the bulk of the line being switched over to 1/8 termination? I did not ask Grado that question specifically but my assessment might be correct since there is a predominance of portable FACS, amps and players that are all 1/8 connection based. Again, that is just supposition on my part and not an official resonse to a question not asked.

Referring to the quote above from another post. Yes, as mentioned in my earlier post all the plugs regardless of size are being plated with the new ugraded process.

I seem to be missing the relevance and ongoing dialogue on this simple situation and decision to meet popular market demands.

:cool

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!

 



does sr60e and sr225e have different cable thickness...?

cheerss

I do not know rovopio.  My SR60 & SR225s are non 'e'.  The SR125e have a thick cable though.

The Sound Science forum is good for that, if you can wade through the bickering, there are tons of useful info.

I love drinking a couple pints of Guinness and heading over to the Sound Science sub-forum.  All the bickering is priceless...adds to the buzz...lol...:beerchug:

 

 

Hey elmoe, how do you like the 325is & MPX3 combo?  Are those GEC 6AS7 power tubes (avatar).

 

Thanks!

Haven't heard a better combo yet! ;)

 

They're Sophia 6SN7s with a Ken-Rad 6SN7GT VT-231 black top in the front.

Nice!!!

 

I have an MPX3 SLAM (5687 w/ adapters)(toaster style) as well and it spanks all my phones.  Sounds awesome with Grados!!

Heatfan, which pads do you like best overall when factoring in sound and comfort for the 125i. Have you tried them with flats as well?

Hey Don,

 

For sound and comfort I would go with the HD414 pads.  I have tried S-cush (reg. and quarter modded), L-Cush (reg. and ksc75 pad), G-cush and HD414.

 

Don't have any flats atm.

 

Cheers!
