    Unfortunately, I really disliked my Hemps with the G pads, the stock pads by far sound the best to me Everything you say resonates with me so much, I was told by quite a few people that my taste in Grados was because I haven't heard anything better and since this was when I was new to this...

    All this praise for the hemp makes my heart warm. Just wished more people from the public gave it a chance, it could be their gateway into the house of Grado

    My Hemps sound excellent out of my little dot 1+ with a Burson classic v6 opamp and upgraded tubes but that amp is really susceptible to EMI and ground loop issues, I get random crackle and pops and there's a constant static that reduces if I put my hands over the tubes(noticeable when music...

    Question for the group, I'm looking for a pair of TWS earbuds for jogging as I'm at times accidentally pulling on my er2xr's cable and I'm worried I may damage them, the Grado gt220's aren't suitable for running right? If the gt220's won't fit that role are there any other TWS earbuds that have...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Does anyone know if the Melomania touch will be suitable for jogging?

    Stretching the headband out a bit should do wonders for your comfort! When I got my pair I found wearing them really painful, after bending the band it's comfortable 👍

    The sr225e is really hard to beat for rock, going up you get more refinement but that's not always necessarily better for rock, the crunch and grit the sr225e's have are magical with rock and metal imho.

    Give the Hemps a listen if you get the chance. I wrote to Grado before buying my Hemp a while back and even they said the Hemp is more dynamic and live sounding than the rs2e and this matches my experience with the two headphones. I haven't heard the rs1e but since it shares the 50mm drivers of...

    I was able to audition a pair of rs2e's from a friend and my impressions are remarkably similar to yours, I too prefer the Hemps but they are really close and it's up to individual preference at this point which one would prefer :gs1000smile:. I know this was mentioned before but it's a...

    Little Dot I+ Tube Rolling

    So I got the LD1+, installed the burson v6 classic opamp and the mullard m8100 tubes, and it sounds pretty decent but I find it fatiguing with my Grado hemp, I was hoping for a smoother more relaxed sound. I even find the stock tubes better in this regard. What is a nice warm bassy tube that...

    Do audition the Hemps if you get the chance, I really like the highs but understandably they may not be your cup of tea. I personally don't think the highs are set back but they may seem that way compared to other Grados(some here consider the hemps dark, Steve Guttenberg in his review finds...

    Really looking forward to your impressions of the Sundara and how it compares to your Grados!

    I keep on hearing that the ifi micro bl is amazing, want to own one someday. For the moment I have a Little dot 1+ on the way, I hear that's the one to get out of the little dot series for low impedance headphones. Have a burson audio v6 classic op amp and mullard m8100 tubes on the way as well...

    Little Dot I+ Tube Rolling

    I have a LD1+ on the way as well as some Mullard M8100 tubes, I am trying to decide between the burson v6 classic and vivid op amp, which do you all think would serve me better? I plan to use it with my Grado Hemps and a modi 3 dac. I'm leaning towards the v6 classics but I'm worried if it would...

    Has anyone tried the Sabaj Pha3 with their Grados?

    Something like the GS3000e does really well for classical in my experience but it is on the pricier side of things, most Grado's I've tried has done reasonably well with classical music. My personal choice for classical is an Akg Q701/K7xx instead, those are godly for classical music.

    I upgraded my amp and dac to the Asgard 3 and Modius, quite a nice stack. Even though I like the amp, the more I used the liquid spark with the Hemp the more I preferred the Schiit Heresy over it, the Hemp sounds more competent with more detail and it sounds cleaner with the Heresy. Separation...

    Curious to hear your thoughts on the GT-220 wireless buds! My Hemps have liked every amp I've put it through thus far (schiit heresy, Liquid spark and the topping nx4), so it's not picky at all, it sounds nice from my Lg phone as well(with the quad dac), your dap should be more than fine!

    Awesome thanks! Which do you think sounds more 3 dimensional? Or are they very similar in this regard?

    I was considering this as well, hoping it's good so I can stack it with my liquid spark amp. :L3000:

    Ah, I see. If the Elex is anything like those two I doubt I'd like them.
