    Grado Fan Club!

    Good choice! I owned 225e and 325e and while both are great I preferred the 225e for these reasons: one of the heavy cups on the 325e broke off the gimbal, I glued it back and when it broke again I bought a second hand 225e, this was a few years ago and it still works flawlessly. It's much...

    Grado Fan Club!

    =========================================== That sounds like really good advice to me! I own several Grados, including the SR80e, SR225e, GR10e and GS1000i, while I love them all the one that gets the most use is the SR225e, which I think is (for myself at least) the best value in the Grado...

    GRADO SR225E worth the extra $ over GRADO SR80E?

    yes, it is, I own both and if I have a choice will only listen to the 225e - it's like a perfected SR80e with better bass. I've reversed the ear pads for better comfort. If you can afford it, get the 225e which in my opinion is the best overall Grado for the price.

    Grado Fan Club!

    I own the Gr10e, SR80e, SR225e and the GS1000i's....love them all ... the GR10e is possibly to me the best sounding/most musical of them all! My most frequently used is the SR225e - combination of comfort (no insertion) and also sounds great straight from my tablet or iphone - but through my...

    iFi audio iSilencer+ and iDefender+

    For you and your system it had that affect, however I use mine daily and wouldn't part with it, my system sounds much better with AQ JB (with a Curious USB cable) than without.

    Grado Fan Club!

    I recently purchased the GR10e, to replace the Shure SE535's I bought over two years ago used as one side finally succumbed to age and probably blew a driver (much reduced volume, switching cable ends doesn't help). All the really positive reviews didn't fully prepare me ....these are really...

    Grado Fan Club!

    yes, fair enough, hence my use of the word "seemed" as it wasn't much of a listen and yes the partnering equipment midfi. However, I'd just like to reiterate my appreciation for my GS1000i's, as fed by my Jitterbug/Curious USB/Chord Mojo they sound so musical! ...a model IMHO not to be...

    Grado Fan Club!

    I very briefly auditioned the WH1’s at the Toronto Audiofest last Saturday. In my very brief listen, they sounded smoother than the GH4’s, with a bigger soundstage and more 3d imaging and specificity. I didn’t know that the WH1’s use the SR325e drivers, the two phones sound very different, the...

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    I feel that many of the complaints of the Mojo - such as closed, small soundstage, poor dynamics, etc. are due to using a lesser cable than what is needed. I actually used the charging cable for listening, and when I bought a Curious Hugo Link a few months ago (for a very good price used), the...

    Grado e Series

    I love my SR225e as well - only mod I did was reverse the supplied ear cushions, plus I eq a slight bass boost...I listen at lower volumes and find that the overall balance of detail, tonality/ sonic weight, soundstage etc. is so well done that the technology disappears and I’m immersed in the...

    Grado Fan Club!

    These current Grado’s are generally considered to be real and substantial improvements in terms of sound/musical quality over their predecessors: PS500e SR80e SR225E I own and enjoy the last two....also the GS3000E is extremely well received despite its summit-fi price. So, while these...

    Laetitia Sadier, the main vocalist of Stereolab, doesn't only perform and sing beautifully, I would argue that her best performances cast a very special feeling.....see if you can feel it here:

    Despite the tension in parts of this thread its nice to hear that on much material the apple dongle sounds good, something I've long thought as well. However, I'm glad to own the Mojo and enjoy its virtues immensely, as I'm sure many of you do as well.

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    It’s not placebo - I didn’t appreciate Mojo when I first auditioned it for 1/2 an hour in a store, after buying it took me a few days to a week or two to really begin appreciating the improvement it makes. Now that I’m accustomed to it, I hear it right away (but I didn’t in the beginning). The...

    Chord Mojo DAC-amp ☆★►FAQ in 3rd post!◄★☆

    Even with my Grado SR225e’s and Shure SE535 there is to me an obvious improvement going from iPhone or other IOS device to using it with Mojo - going direct without Mojo the sound is good but by comparison somewhat blurry, with Mojo much more definition and musically better; more engaging and...

    Chord Electronics ☆ Poly ☆ (wireless & microSD module for Mojo) ☆★►USEFUL INFO on 1st PAGE!!◄★☆

    In your opinion, is the Poly worth it for SQ/musicality alone given its cost? I did audition it briefly along with Hugo 2, as I wasn't familiar with the music files I couldn't reach any conclusion as to sq improvements with Poly over a USB/AQ Jitterbug connection to my iPhone or Mac....but the...
