    Grado SR225 Thread

    Yeah, the cumbersome cord is the only mod I have left to make to mine.  I replaced the headband with the Sony, got the yellow foam pads and covered them with the chenille covers in dark blue.  One day I'll be done modding them and just sit and listen to them :p

    Bluetooth for the Gym

    I'm looking for preferably IEMs that I can use at the gym on machine while listening to my tablet (which I can't exactly stick in my pocket).  I have a pair of older Moto ROKRs and the background hum drives me nuts!  I mean, they are BlueTooth, why are they humming as if there is line noise?  ...

    why people perfer y-cord more than j-cord?

    For IEMs, Y-Cord.   For full-size, I prefer a J if the cord isn't to heavy.  I couldn't imagine my Grado 225i with a J using the freak'n pythons they have on this thing.  But my "Skype" headphones at home are J cord and wonderful because of that.  I doubt the cable could handle the signal...

    Lady Ga Ga Is Now The New Singer For The Band Queen

    The thing is, how would this advance her career?  She could do Queen covers in her own concerts without tying herself to the band...

    You can see it in theaters for a VERY limited number of performances

    What have your experiences been at Carnegie Hall?

    In addition, during a live concert you can tune the experience by turning your head!  I'm sure a great home system can do the same thing...   However, a live performance sounds exactly like it is supposed to because it IS the source!  There is also that whole visual aspect as well :D

    Grado SR225i + G-Cush, Opinions?

    I've realized that the L's hurt because I wear glasses.  No matter how I position them they hurt in 10 minutes or less.   I have the HD414 pads on order and if they work out I will try dying them.

    Grado SR225i + G-Cush, Opinions?

    Search for the win!   I was seriously thinking of investing the $45 in the G-Cush pads when I found this thread.    If only the HD414 pads came in another color!

    M6 fit issues.

    Sony Hybrids work well for me.  None of the stock tips worked at all for me.

    Getting "called-out" for not wearing the Beats

    Quote: Head is down.  Horrible heel-strike. Wearing full sized cans instead of IEMs.   This is a photo-op, not a serious runner...   Actually, is that Fergie?

    Shure E2c or Monster Turbine?

    I'd go with the Turbine Pro over the e2c.  As much as I prefer the e2c for fit (once they are in, the over the ear style just works), the lack of bass is what drove me to these forums in the first place.  Turbine Pros have the balls to properly present heavier music but they do get a little...

    Looking for the "Best" recordings of the usual classical favorites.

    Well, it has been an eye-opener.  I finally have equipment that is revealing just how poor my old "Music Club" Classical CDs really are.  I always suspected they weren't the best, but now I can hear the flaws in the sound quality.  Worse, the arrangements were never great in the first place.  ...

    How much improvement will these portable headphone amps affect my headphones?

    If you don't like the sound profile of the Pro's you could fiddle with EQ, but an amp won't fix them.    Sometimes the price of trendy stuff is sacrificing function for form...

    Question about Monster Beats Tour vs. Turbine

    The Coppers are wonderfully clear compared to the somewhat muddiness of the "Grays".    This is pretty much my exact experience:   Quote:

    Meelec M6 -- Awful (Update: Not So Awful)

    The M6 is hard to fit.  The only tips that worked for me were Sony Hybrids.    Once I had them fit, I found them to have a ton of bass, recessed mids and strong highs... the classic crowd-pleasing V-shaped sound signature that I generally dislike.  Some folks love these IEMs, and they are...

    Westone 2 True-Fit IEM Appreciation & Impressions Thread...

    I just got my W2's and I'm in love.  They aren't as ballsy as my Turbine Pros, but the balance and precision is just tear inducing.  I'm listening to my usual eclectic mix and feel tingling in my chest every few songs.  I'm also hearing lyrics more clearly.  Heck, I can almost keep up with...

    ie with Monster Supertips Sampler Pack fix isolation?

    Off.  I've actually hit pause and only barely heard the (loud talker) speaking.  That was with my E2c.

    Turbine Tangling

    I've got the "grey" Turbine Pro and the cable tangles like crazy.  It is amazing compared to my M6 and W2, which I hardly ever have to untangle.   Are the Golds and Coppers this bad?.

    Do ear tips make that big of a difference on Monster Turbine Pro Coppers?

    Weird, I had the opposite problem.  The S4 never fit me well.  Good seal was uncomfortable with any of my wide array of tips.  Sony Hybrids on my Turbines work perfectly.  I never even opened the fit kit.

    ie with Monster Supertips Sampler Pack fix isolation?

    From what I've read, the body itself allows sound to pass. so it will never have ear-plug quality isolation.   However, I have found that the Monster kit does have some of the most isolating tips available and make some of my IEMs so isolating I can't hear someone talking directly to me from...

    IEMs for Rock/Metal - Confused.

    Sadly, I'm comparing only the regular Turbine Pros (Grey) to the W2's.    I think the amount and impact of bass is just about perfect.  More would be fatiguing to me.  However, the W2's make them sound like they are muddy and mid-less.  When I compare the Turbines to the Mee M6, they sound...

    IEMs for Rock/Metal - Confused.

    Quote: Apparently not.  I'm doing A/B testing with Turbines vs. W2s right now.  Together they'd be perfect!
