    Marshall's new cans, the Monitor headphones

    I have been away from music listening for some time. The consequences of working in a high stress high tech position that is ever-changing. I picked up these at the local Costco. The first few hours, I considered returning them, then they loosened up a bit. Wow. I really like these closed...

    The Audio Technica M50 studio monitor thread

    New Owner: Got one from Amazon. I'm a Grado fan that started on SR80i then went on to SR325is. I was very happy with the 80i because they sound so well at low volumes after about 100 hour burnin. I went with the 325 after a year or so and felt I'd moved up to a set where my equipment needed to...

    Suggestions on a new pair of headphones

    You may like a Fostex T50RP. I just picked one up. I am a grado fan and these are an obvious difference. They are very neutral and flat. They are very durable. They sound terrific with vocals. The price is fairly low, <100.00s that I have seen,

    Blues & Jazz -- Best Headphones?

    Try calling Brooklyn again...I listen to mainly blues and jazz and vocals. My main headphone is Sr325is. They sound very dynamic and are terrific. I will likely go to RS1 in a few years.

    grado jumbo/g-cushions questions.

    any feedback on this question? I was wondering too. Has anyone tried the large pad on any of the prestige series and compared them? I was interested in a pair for my SR325iS later this summer. Thanks!

    Rattling in the left speaker can of my SR225i's

    Seems a lot is on the web about grattle and I picture lots of people with their mouths pressed against grados with their cheeks puffed out or in and possibly causing all sorts of mayhem. The resulting crackling is the result in many cases from what i've read. What kind of damage can results...

    Rattling in the left speaker can of my SR225i's

    I've had my Sr325iS for about a month or so and usually listen at low volume. I developed a taste for Charles Mingus, thelonious Monk music lately. My set up is normally a Toshiba CD player Xr-P22. It is about 20 years old or so. It soundes terrific on these phones. I normally listen at level...

    Earbud opinions that sound like grado SR80s

    In pursuit of trying to find medium priced (100.00 or so) headphones that sound similar to my klipsch heritage line speakers (fortes, Heresy's, La Scalas) I found the Grado line to my liking. I ended up settling on the SR80's and have been happy for the past year or so. Recently I have been...
