    Head-Fi newbie asking about the Grado SR225is

    I've been searching head-fi for a few days hunting for the perfect set of cans for some rock (Five Finger Death Punch, Disturbed, Seether, Chevelle, Shinedown, etc.). Unless I'm just a complete idiot., I've realized that the Grado SR225is are the obvious choice. However, I have two questions...

    Seems like no point to buy Grado RS2i/e, what do u think?

    Would rather go for PS500 which had a more refined sound compared to RS2i/e or just get a SR325e for that fun sound.

    New Grados or something else? $1000 budget (new or used)

    First thing first, I love the Grado sound a lot for the music I listen to mostly (rock, classic rock, indie rock, soft rock). I also love large soundstage (AD700, K7xx) as well. While I do like my AKG K7xx for their wide soundstage, I am finding them boring and not engaging. The soundstage, to...

    Akg Q701 or Grado RS-2i

    Hi everyone.   I was pretty set on getting the Q701's with a E09k but after seeing the price here in Canada for the rs2i's, it doesn't seem a lot more considering it won't need a powerful amp. Which would suit me better? (Sr325i would also be an option)   Initially I thought Grado's were my...

    The pain of walking into a hifi store...

    So today I walked into a small shop in Minneapolis ( needle doctor) to pick up a pair of sr60i's for another modding project... And I ended up auditioning most of the grado line. I loved the rs1, the detail was simply awesome (love those mids and highs) the bass was very good compared to every...

    Upgrading from MDR-v600s....

    I'm working with a pair of Sony MDR-v600 headphones. I want to upgrade. I've got a good budget, so that's not in question. (The quality of the headphone will decide how much I wanna spend.) One thing though... I cannot find a good stereo shop in my area that has the high end headphones I've...

    Alessandro Music Series 2, less "open" than SR325i? Or any tips on how to ship the RS2i's to Sweden?

    Hi,     I've been looking into upgrading my headphones and I've settled on the Alessandro MS 2's. Or so I thought, until l read somewhere (can't remember where) that they are a bit less "open" sounding than the Grado SR325i's. Which is exacly what I'm looking for. The problem? Every Grado...

    The Grado RS-2 Thread

    Since we had a RS-1 appreciation thread a while back, its time for the RS-2 version! Post your thoughts/opinions! I just recieved a pair today, and they sound freaking awesome! They are a bit bright, probably due to the AD8610s in my amp, but the bass is awesome, and they actually have a...

    Grado Drivers

    Can someone confirm if Grado actually makes them in house ? For those that did the factory tour, did you guys actually see them making the drivers, like winding the copper coil onto the drivers and them forming the diaphrams and assembling them together or you just saw them inserting the...

    Want Grado's, 225, 325, RS2 or MS2?

    So I have wanted some grado's for a while, when I originally asked I was wondering between the lower prestige series and was told I should probably go for the 225i's minimum due to me already being use to higher end stuff (SRH-840's and D5000's) so I listened to some at a local place and didn't...

    Semi-Vintage Grado RS-2(non i) up for grabs if intrest is met.

    well head-fi I feel the time has finally come...maybe. I am a bit torn over these as these were pretty much my first audio purchase and are "special" to me if that makes sense; I just don't use them enough. I love these things; but the HE-500 and my speakers just take up more time than these do...
