    Grado 325is All Plastic Housing?

    Hi all, I ran into these on my local Craigslist today.  Did Grado ever make an all-plastic version of the SR325is headphones? I was weirded out by the photo.  Thanks for the help!

    iFi nano iCAN. "Name that Attenuator" competition. Winner no. 1 winner of iCAN nano is...

    I like iFi nano iWAVE or iFi nano iWHISPER as both of these names fit into your current product lineup and direct the mind to an image of a small item - in addition to being catchy!  Hope this helps, even if I don't win.

    Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106)

    Hey all, I have been searching the web (and Head-Fi) for days, and cannot seem to find an answer to my question.  I was hoping someone here may be able to help.  I am no basshead, but I am looking into getting a pair of Etymotic HF-5s, and wanted to know how their bass response compared to that...

    **MrSpeakers Mad Dog: Impressions and Discussion Thread**

    Having owned these for a day now, I can honestly say that they are my favorite headphones to date.  They are magical, in that they just sort of disappear and take second stage to the music.  These are awesome.

    Grado SR225 Thread

    I was able to find a used set of SR225s today for 85 bucks!  Let me just say, this is the best purchase I have made in my entire life (so far at least  ).  Unfortunately, they came with some pretty crappy old flat pads, so I am now in the market for a set of the L-Cush pads they ship with.  Even...

    ATH-M50 Removable Cable Mod

      I used the Calrad locking connectors and they worked out very well, if you decide against the gaming mic (which I want now, by the way!).

    post your grado mods....

    Quick question for you guys, if anyone has the time!  I am looking into doing a single-side detachable cable mod on a pair of SR-80i that I am messing with, and was wondering if mounting the female 3.5mm adapter assembly inside the cup will cause any problems with the sound or balance at all?  I...

    The fact that this thread went unupdated for almost 9 months has convinced me that my own mod projects can be finished as well :) Your woodies look phenomenal man!

    Looking for a DAC under ~200$ for my hd650's and bottlehead crack...

    Great decision, you won't be disappointed.  You really do have to reach a lot higher in cost to beat it.

    ATH-M50 Removable Cable Mod

    Quote:   I do too, and if I ever sell them I will redo it that way! This was unfortunately one of the all-too-common situations where you remember the heatshrink after the soldering is complete. I'm just an idiot! :)

    Headphone Sightings 2

    Semester ended today, but the only headphones I saw were black V-Moda M80s! Not a terrible way to end the year.

    HiFi in Seattle Area

    Definitive Audio has a branch in Tacoma known as Advanced Audio, I stopped by there today, and they rock!  Tons of great HiFi stuff (and a small selection of headphones), but the staff are phenomenal, and very helpful.

    Ha that is definitely good to hear.  That is the problem I have run into with old posts, the bad economy has driven a lot out of business!

    Is there any reason to upgrade amplifiers if I have a Fiio E6?

    Quote: This was very helpful.  Oftentimes the idea of more money makes stuff "sound better".  I have found the E6 to do a pretty good job.
