    Grado Fan Club!

    Comfort foods (fatty, salty, acidic or sweet) have unhealthy (poor) numbers/metrics, but we love them. We know Grado does not measure well, but we love them the same way we love comfort foods. Heck, that is why certain people love tube amps and vinyls. We like distortion when it sounds more...

    Grado Fan Club!

    I'm crossing my fingers for mid. Oct. (because it makes most sense if they are going to release it this year).

    Grado Fan Club!

    Looking at the RS1 (non "e") and RS2e or just most SR & RS (except for "e") Frequency Response, there is a peak/spike at 2-3Khz and again at 5-7Khz. If you look at the GS and PS (G-Cush) Frequency Response, there is no 2-3Khz peak/spike but still a 5-7KHz one. So I imagine if you were to EQ and...

    Grado Fan Club!

    Need a little help. I avoided the GS and PS Grado because the Pads (G Cush) places the driver too far from the ear. I get the detail and soundstage but it just wasn't my need at least for Grados. I've owned all the RS1 variations both with Flat pads in the vintage RS1 and L Cush in the later...

    I predict for Reference series will be early October. Since it’s been listed as sold out at 4ourears for awhile now.

    I would keep the sr325i and get sr325x :) They will both complement each other. If you were to listen to a guitar riff, with the 325i it would sound thinner but with more edge and bite because it would have more treble while with 325x more thicker because it would have more mid/upper bass. It...

    Few RS1i vs RS2e impressions: The RS1i sounds like a band (listening to Radiohead, The Bends) is performing live in a cathedral church. There is a subtle reverb/resonance and treble extension and air. The treble shimmers and floats and decays slower. There is also a taller/deeper soundstage...

    The Perfect Grado I think sometimes it's unfair of me to judge every Grado headphone that I purchase or try (like the Hemp) with the standards of all my various Grado headphone experiences. In this way, I'm looking for and wanting the perfect Grado headphone: a Grado headphone that checks the...

    Grado Fan Club!

    When the HD800 first came out, there was so much hype I sold my (vintage A) Grado RS1 to purchase them. What a mistake that was. It really is about the tone and timbre. After a long process of trying out every hi end headphone, I kind of settled on vintage headphones (beyerdynamic dt48a, koss...

    [FiiO BTR5/FiiO BTR5 2021] Flagship Portable High-Fidelity Bluetooth Amplifier, Bluetooth chip CSR8675, support up to 384kHz&DSD256 native

    Just got mine. Love clear everything sounds. However, when my BTR5 is connected to my Mac bluetooth with Amarra Player, the music/songs speed is slightly faster. Through USB it's fine and iPhone bluetooth is fine too. Only with Mac with Amarra. Any ideas?
