    Headphones Needed To Fit System

    Hi people. I'm using a Pure I-20 dock and iPod 160GB to feed a Schiit Bifrost DAC and Asgard amp. My headphones are the Grado SR325is. It sounds pretty amazing but never happy I've decided to upgrade my headphones. My budget is £700. What do you guys suggest?

    *****Review***** Grado PS500

    Pros: Vocal close to being intimate. Adapts to the song easily. Balanced and bass happy though not too happy to overwhelm in any way. EQ helps. Cons: Not very open, not such a big soundstage, highs could have been a bit better. Not for treble lovers. Departure from Grado sound. Intro: I got...

    The 500s Side-By-Side: Testing the HiFiMAN HE-500, Grado PS500, and Shure SE535 Comparatively

    This is the seventh in my comparisons of three headphones, all using a group of 10 tests and scored by ranking their performance on each test as first, second, and third place.  I call this the "Test of the 500s" -- each model number is either equal to or in the 500s, and the cost of each of...

    Portable Amp for Grado PS500

    Any recommendations for a portable amp that would pair well with my Grado PS500? Unfortunately, I prefer having my audio equipment as portable as I possibly can, so I mainly use my iphone 5 as my audio source. Since my listening sessions come mainly from a portable music player, do I need to...

    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.

    Hey guys, I'm scheduled for Lasik surgery, which means I'm getting back into the headphone world. I used to own a pair of RS1i's which I loved, but due to the pressure, my ears pressed against the legs of my glasses and I couldn't listen to them for more than 30 minutes without experiencing...
