    I am determined to at least try not to buy anything made in China for many reasons. It is difficult but we should all endeavour to not support this bullying, repressive and aggressive regime. Nothing against the Chinese people but the sooner the cpc is brought down the better for all mankind. AIMHO

    Grado Fan Club!

    Can anyone recommend a company in the UK that could re-terminate the 1/4'' jack on my SR125 (non e/i original).? The sound is intermittent dependant on the angle the end of the cable is held from the source. I see Custom Cans might do this or should I contact Grado to completely replace...

    Grado Fan Club!

    Although I have stated I was not a big fan of the PS500 (original non-'e') i do think they are easily the most beutiful headphones I have had. The combination of aluminiumwith the wooden inner core, the grilles and the leather looked and felt very special. If i had the funds I would give the the...

    Why the Beats Hate?

    So are Beats officially dead now Apple have finally self-branded(if that's the correct term?!?) their headphones? Are they now just an option on VW's Polo spec sheet? Sorry if I don't shed a little tear on their passing😏

    Grado Fan Club!

    RS2e and PS500e have, according to Grado' s own website, 44mm drivers?!? . The PS500e is more expensive . It is also, if anything like the original PS500 and based on my experience, inferior to the RS2e if you like Grado sound.

    Koss Portapro Thread

    From my Graham Slee Voyager, they sound absolutely bloomin fantastic! 😊 (Had both for about ten years but have only today thought of using them together, with great results)

    Grado Fan Club!

    My RS2e are only a month or so old but I've been busy with a black marker myself. The paint on the grills, I find, is easily chipped. I've also applied leather protector to the headband as that seems easily marked or stained. The wood is fine at least😉 They need a little mollycoddling, a bit of...

    Fun closed-back headphones recommandation with good bass

    DT150?!? Best bass I've heard. A massive living breathing entity, quite separate from the rest of the rest of the sound and doesn't intrude on other frequencies . Only rears it's head when the music requires it. Save 4-600£/$

    Your top three audio related purchases 2015

    This year's purchases, all three of them in order of satisfaction : Grado RS2e ... Sennheiser IE80S BT Graham Slee Bitzie DAC amp (All on great deals as usual. I'm essentially a tight fisted 'audiophile' / Yorkshireman who loves a bargain).

    Sennheiser HD250 Linear Impressions Micro-Thread

    I havent looked at the inner one on mine (#11) , maybe afraid to... Out of sight, out of mind?!?! The outer ones are perfect at least.. Where would you even get such a thing when Sennheiser can't even supply us the pads or outer foam? PS as I've said before I don't know why they've...

    Grado Fan Club!

    Received mine this morning too. They are a work of art to look and the smell of leather and wood is great. Thankfully they sound good too. A more refined Grado sound even without burn in, no harshness. Listened to Brian Eno - Another Green World as recommended by Grado themselves. Very nice...

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    Graham Slees are pretty much made for Sennheisers. His favourite phones and the ones he uses to develop his products is the HD250 Linear a 300ohm phone. They were Sennheiser's choice of amp for demoing their phones for a while, at least in the UK I wouldn't buy new though. My Solo, Voyager and...

    Yes it's otherworldly what the Mojo can do to certain headphoned. In my limited experience it seems to excel with relatively low impedence closed back headphones such as the HD25 and also, in my case, Focal Spirit Classic. Transforms the sounstage and feeling of airy openness, and separation...

    hd25-1 impressions thread

    That's my point. I know they are just pvc, vinyl, leatherette, faux bl**dy leather or whatever fake, cheap man made material you wish to call em, but they look.... and feel, and age like real leather. Alchemy PS they don't smell like leather!!

    hd25-1 impressions thread

    Wrong The aluminium pads are quite different to the cheap pleather originals. It is very hard to believe they are not made of fine leather. They soft, supple and are not sticky in warm weather. I have no idea how they did it and so quickly forgot. After around 8years(?) mine still resemble...

    Sennheiser HD 600 Impressions Thread

    An old Porsche Turbo or other air cooled 911s are a far more exciting, purer, 'seat of the pants' and potentially terrifying drive than any current Porsche. Man and machine interface. Far cooler, leaner and more stylish. Like most things of the past in the eyes and ears of a middle aged dreamer...

    Sennheiser HD250 Linear Impressions Micro-Thread

    Great call . Many thanks!! I think these pads are as close as you will get to the original 'bowled' concave foam inserts. The material is identical. They certainly restore the bass that went missing (down to HD600 level impact) with plain flat Sennheiser or beyer foam Work well with HD430...
