    Grados with buttons on or off?

    I removed the buttons on my 325i. My advice would be to not do it if want to keep the stock black paint on the grille. The glue is a PAIN to get off, and when you do get it off it takes the paint with it. If you're going to spray paint them, as I did, the paint coming off isn't an issue. But...

    They couldn't stay at $400 anyway because it makes too much sense to spend that much on a used RS-2, or spend the extra $50 and get them new. I wasn't surprised at all to see the HF-1 make several appearances in the "Overrated Headphones" thread.

    The Official Grado 325i Owners Club.

    I bought the RS-1 and sold the 325i. It's not that I would swap back, I LOVE the RS-1. But I miss having the 325i sound at my fingertips. I thought the RS-1 would be a "replacement" for the 325i, but I've come to realize that that isn't the case. The RS-1 sound was clearly superior to me, but...

    RS-1 deserve the price compare to SR60 ??

    Oh I'm a Grado guy, that's one thing I'm sure of. I keep the flats around because I used them on a pair of SR-60s I had (loved flats on those, flats are more fun and those aren't detail phones anyway.) And yes, the flats are better with the tubes than with the solid state because the bass...
