    Nice write-up, I've been curious about these - thank you. That cable really ought to be standard across the Grado range, or at least on the wooden ones upward. A minor quibble but I wish they hadn't chosen that weird lower-case font for the writing on the cups. As I said, minor.

    Is this model similar to the Rs2i/1?

    They look great. Thanks for the review. Any thoughts on how their SQ compares to other Grados? Specifically, GH2?

    According to this review the HF3 is basically the perfect headphone. Not a single criticism about the headphone, and glowing praise in every conceivable category of headphone sound. I'd take this with a grain of salt, personally. I think the dedication of the proceeds to charity is very admirable though, kudos on that front.

    Some comparisons to other Grados (RS-2e, GH-3/4, SR325e) would be nice..

    I have the st325e's is this a worthy upgrade for a similar price from the same company...?

    This review looks like it was written by a Grado employee

    The HF3 was reviewed on its own merit. I own reference Grado models so I could not compare to other models in the same category.

    I do not work for Grado an they are not one of my sponsors. Honest impressions !

    Thank you for the time and effort but there's no point of reference in this review. I will wait for more reviews that can compare the HF-3 to other Grado models.

    I have compared the HF3 to the Grado GH2 and the Grado RS2e here: Grado HF3: [URL]https://www.head-fi.org/threads/grado-fan-club.530965/page-2678#post-15106553[/URL] .
