    Hey my Grado friends, it’s been awhile since I’ve checked in. Hope y'all are doing well. I just wanted to share something. Certain albums that have bad dynamic range would sound really bland on all of my headphones (HD600, HEMP.) But once I play those albums on my SR225X they light up. My theory...

    I haven’t been keeping close attention, but did you guys notice that the hemp is back up on the web store. With new pricing too. $469

    REM’s Automatic for the People, and Linkin Park’s Hybrid theory both got updated to Dolby. I think these two are among the better dolby mixes out right now. Impressed how quick these artists are learning what is working, and what is NOT working with just under a week of it.

    I think a shining example of the potential of the Dolby Atmos format is the new St Vincent album “Daddy’s Home.” Some of the songs in their playlists were ok, most were not great but this album, this album makes me think this Dolby Atmos thing has some legs to it. I listened with my AirPod Pros.

    Because I’ve been giving my hemp some extra love lately, I’ve also been looking closer at it. I noticed some slight imperfections in the hemp/maple housings. Just wondering if this is normal, I need to ease my mind lol. Notice the small divot I circled, and I also circled the little hemp pieces...

    That’s interesting! Did you check out the Hemp? That sounds like it would be more towards your warmer sound preference. But that’s really weird how your taste changed. But we all gotta go with what we like. like for me I like the combination of the Hemp and the SR225x.

    I … have comfort issues lol. And I started to get an aversion to the “comfy pads.” The flat pads on the hemp was much less irritating for me. So i had to let them go to buy another flat pad grado (SR225x!) That’s partly why I’m not using the SR80x on the regular either. Glad they are going more...

    I know I was just gushing about the SR225x up there but I’m listening to a modest mouse cd on the hemp and I’m having another moment. I love how realistic music sounds on the hemp. aside from maybe the sennheiser hd600 I never heard a headphone that had such a perfect timbre. Acoustic and...

    Yeah there seems to be some confusion. lol. I actually emailed rich grado after my original post and he said this :laughing: ”As for what the plans are... we get a kick out of all the people who "know" what we are going to do next, we usually don't know ourselves until it happens, but we never...

    To bring you guys up to speed I currently own Grado Hemp, Grado sr225x, and Grado SR80x. I sold my GH3 last week to make room for some of the x-series. I’ll be using the HEMP/225x as my main headphones because i like the flat pads a lot. The SR80x will be my guitar playing headphone, and the...

    Oh i’m sure we are gonna see an update of the RS1/2. I just don’t know if they will have a similar tuning to the hemp. The new SR325x appears to be the hemp in different cloths from the impressions on here

    I can see both sides of this. The Hemps were limited edition, but at the same time it’s been a major HIT. So i wouldn’t hate them if they incorporated into their main line up somehow

    The hemps will be discontinued later this year? I found this on reddit. It seems like we don’t know the future of the hemps lol

    I just think they all have a different tuning, for different tastes. Not that one is better than another. they coexist just fine

    Earlier in the week I posted about how I felt Grado was very particular about the wording on their website. You’ll even notice the wireless headphone doesn’t say a darn thing about the sound on the website, just that it uses a grado driver. They know it’s not a good headphone too! But they use...

    I had a theory that i thought the 325x was going to be the hemp in new cloths. The way the website markets it it seems like it would be that way. The mini reviews on here seem to be leaning towards that. I got the 80x and i’ll write a full review after i have more time with it. But it sounds...

    How would you guys feel if Grado moved production of the SR line over seas to help meet demand, and help with costs caused by the pandemic

    I think this generation of audiophiles are really into the measurements, and hitting some sort of harman target. And Grado goes against all of that

    Did you install the brown band, or is there yet again another headband variation in the hemp line?

    They’ll find a way to ship it with a non detachable cord and package it in the donut box

    I always appreciate your detailed and thoughtful replies in this thread. Sometimes I feel like I’m on my own little GH3 island. But for my preferences (comfort, and loving Norwegian pine) the GH3 seemed like the best option over the 60/80/125 with some of the refinement you seem to get with the...

    I feel you man. Until I settled on owning TWO Grados (Long story- comfort issues with anything other than on ear headphones lol) I was like you with having one headphone per use case. Wireless, earbud, proper listening etc.. It seems like you have a few weeks to finalize this decision, i’m...
