    What happened to Grado's reputation?

    Some may have issues with the build quality of grados. I have never had a problem with mine. I also find them comfortable. Despite the dissenters MANY others feel this way too.

    What happened to Grado's reputation?

    "Sound quality will get you so far"-I would say this quote clearly illustrates the mentality we're dealing with here.   Want a cookie with those grados??   I must be completely stupid,I own a Grado rs1i and a Beyer T1. :(         Quote:

    Grado RS1i vs Sennheiser HD 650

    Great idea!!!   My feeling is many people want  other opinions about sounds without attempting to try themselves.Granted,some people lack access to these phones but others.....   Regarding other folks' tastes:How often would you trust strangers' tastes or opinions in the other areas of...

    What happened to Grado's reputation?

    This is a sadly ignorant post.   Crap has always been there and always will be.Maybe you need to get out(or explore more deeply online)more.   "Basis for evolution"??!!??  "Foundations for moving on"?????????? What the  @#$# are you talking about?   There is more abundance of...

    If price were no object would you rather get Studio Beats or ATH m50s?

    Quote: I agree the Senns win but Beats lose against M50.   I am of of course completely subjective here.(and I too heard heard both,many times)

    What happened to Grado's reputation?

    So reputation? 1.Look at the press Beats gets. 2.Grado has been around a long time(In audio land terms).They are still known as a serious company among those who know. 3.In the commercial market they have always have been an "underdog" company. 4.Search Stereophile magazine( a very "reputable"...

    The Next Step? (HD650 v K702 v DT990 v DT880 v anything else you can think of :P)

    I have HD650s and love them.Hd600 might be a good compromise between the phones in your list though.

    If price were no object would you rather get Studio Beats or ATH m50s?

    Is this thread a joke?   After all the M50's are good headphones(IMO)......The Beats are not(IMO).   No offence.....I have a completely subjective viewpoint.

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    This is exactly the way I feel with my Grado RS1i and my Beyer T1.Those are both special phones(and WAY more expensive) but my next trip abroad I will bring only my HD 650.   Quote:

    What makes one portable player better than the other?

    Well even though I've supported the "subjective perspective" here on this thread I feel inclined to post some objective information regarding cowon.Unlike any ipod that exists,my cowon plays FLAC and APE files.Whether these formats sound better than mp3 or the apple formats is irrelevent to...

    What makes one portable player better than the other?

    Danneq.....   Of course my wife knows the truth.     My opinions are my own.I embrace this.Others are not wrong because they like other things.This is my entire point.   Subjectivity IS always for EVERYONE regarding sonic taste(IMO).This is also definitely not restricted to sonic...

    What makes one portable player better than the other?

    Well I'll fix that.   My cowon D2+ is WAY better than my wife's ipod touch.That's because I like the way it sounds WAY more.   Sorry no technical explanation.:(    It did cost less $ though :)   Merriam Webster definition of "better"(as an adjective):   1 : greater than half...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    That's because they are not.   1."Smooth" perhaps. 2."Neutral" perhaps not(but most people who who say they know what neutral means or is DON'T.I've worked in recording studios for 20 years I've heard MANY,MANY,MANY different interpretations of this adjective("interpretations"=key...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Sorry didn't mean to offend anyone.IMO the veil is a psychoacoustic effect based generally based on one of two things:   1.The sound signature lacks clarity and/or brightness when compared with other headphones.   2.Someone reads about the "veil" somewhere and goes "oh yeah".   The...
