    strange phenom it seems with 990 600 ohm headphones

     Once upon a time when I had a "job" (deployed to Baghdad) and I had money, I had a beyer 990 600ohm set of cans with black dragon rewire. Now I had a good ole sony x7esd for a source and a woo audio 2 AND a cary 300 F1. Now listening to these cans, they had an awful muffled sound. Now I tried...

    Sennheiser HD800 vs Beyerdynamic T1 vs Grado GS1000

    I am looking for a pair of headphones to compliment my Grado SR325i (soon to be RS1i). I am looking for something with a large soundstage, airy, not too laid back ( I like forward mids ), controlled and tight bass (I hate bloat), and smooth natural highs. I listen to a lot of rock, soft rock...

    2nd pair of cans

    I have Sennheiser HD 650's and they sound the best I've ever heard through my Musical Fidelity M1HPAP headphone amp (had the amp for going on 2 weeks now).  The veil is gone.  With Jazz and Instrumentals the Sennheiser's bring the "smile element." I'd like to add another pair of headphones that...

    Cardas Earbud / Hearing Aid Project (aka Cardas Mirrors)

    Tyll of IF recently noted this about the Cardas "Earbud" (now known as Cardas Mirrors) ... Quote: Strange that this IEM has not been mentioned on Head-Fi yet... maybe the keyword "Earbud" threw off Googlers searching for their next, latest-n-greatest IEM fix ;) They are NOW called "Cardas...

    High end headphones and IEMs

    Hi all,   I recently got the chance to try out some fairly high-end headphones at an audio shop, and while I was quite impressed with the quality, I was a little disappointed a the bulky units, thick cabling, and large amount of sound leakage that seems common to these premium units. In my...

    Why would anyone want just one headphone?

    I often hear people here say that they prefer to just have one headphone as their ultimate choice. I just could never relate to this idea. All phones bring different things to the table sonically (and even comfort-wise). All phones have their strengths and weaknesses, and the flagship phones...

    Grado GS1000 purchase - recommendations please

    Yesterday I won an auction on for what was listed as Grado GS1000i.  I paid promptly and I'm waiting for some response or notification of postage from the seller.   However, after very carefully looking at the sellers photos, it now seems that the photos show the GS1000 model, not...

    GRADO RS1i upgrade

    my first post here but just wondering if anyone done the same as me and fitted the G cushion pads from PS1000 on their RS1i headphones and black taped the edges. I loved these headphones in standard form but this little mod has put them onto a different planet. sound stage is enormous , high...

    So I had my Grado SR325i's repaired and the sound signature seems to have changed . . . Any similar experiences?

    Hello my fellow Head-Fi friends,   I sent in my Grado SR325i's to Grado Labs in New York about a month ago. The cord had lost contact in the left side of my headphones and I believe there was also an odd rattling noise that had began to plague my headphones (Grado Grattle?). From what I've...

    Quick question, I have the opportunity to make buy the GS1000 for 600, should I take it? Also, why is the GS1000 not as popular as some of the other headphones in the same price range? Thanks in advance.

    Recable Grado GS-1000

    I have a pair of Grado GS-1000's that need to be recabled. The cable has apparently shorted within the y-connector. Only one side would play. I split the cable open and basically bi-passed the y (and very crudely) just to make sure that is where the short was and also that the driver was okay. ...

    Grado Fan Club!

    I searched and couldn't find a fan club for Grados in general. I have only listened to the SR80is and LOVE them. I love how these cans really bring rock to life. I hope to someday try some more high end Grados. I want to see how the Grado "house sound" changes throughout the line up.
