Grado sr60i and loving it.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

 

I had a pair of Sony XB700 and i wanted a an open ear headphone. After a lot of research it came down to 3 choices -

 

Grado Sr60i

AD700

Senn HD239

 

I had had a lot of bass thanks to XB700 (and they are great btw) and it wasnt a priority. So i thought over and i wanted a clean output with a good soundstage and airy feeling. No sweat or the feeling warmth in my ears. So i looked at the designs and found that AD are too big. So it came down to 2 others. and then i just went for the grados purely bcoz of the name and appreciation it gets :P . At first i thought they looked ancient but now that i have th

 

em it feels some antiquie piece. Which i really like now! Its not like other cans. Also its so comfortable and many people say there is a clamping force on the head due to on ear design but i feel they are not clamping hard. In fact they are just placed on it. Well it might differ for head sizes i guess.

 

So i put them on and played music. The first thing i realized was exactly what i wanted. That airy and open vibe. Wow just felt like air passing through with music playing. Next was the instrument a seperation. The soundstage was good not huge but amazing for the clarity these cans churn out. Also these cans don't go very loud. But it's enough for me. I am yet to burn in much with my phone HTC ONE M8 but i already know what to expect. Many suggestions were from here so thank you guys too and i will be very thankfull if you can suggest some of your favorite songs for the Grados.
