    voice not in the center of the headphone? what the?

    I was critically listening to some female vocals last night and have notice that depending on the passage, some times I feel the voice is little to the right, sometimes little to the left, but more right than left, and I can aparently change the position by resetting the headphone on my head...

    Replace Grado 80's with DT 990s ?

    Hi,   I'm looking to replace an aging pair of Grado SR80's and have been searching around on here for days and looking at other reviews. I'm not looking at a direct replacement in that I don't want or expect them to sound the same (otherwise I'd just buy a newer pair of SR80i's, right ?)...

    Good closed headphones for office use?

    I have a pair of Grado SR-80s that have done me well for several years, but of course they have an open design so my coworker is able to hear my music. I'm looking for a decent set of closed headphones to use in the office, for ~$200-250 or so. I mostly listen to metal, and don't really want...

    My Grado SR80 cup mods

    Hi everyone, I have had my Grado SR80s for years now and had only done two mods. One was to replace the 3.5mm jack with a 1/4" gold plated Neutrik, and the other was to replace the grills with a more open mesh which, as many many people have reported, opened them up no end. The other day at...

    Hello,   I used Xdream infrared wireless headphones for the past six years with a Sony Wega CRT HDTV. My old Sony had RCA audio out jacks which worked great with my Xdream headphones; I was pleased with the sound quality of the Xdream headphones, which roughly equaled the quality of my Grado...

    New Grado Labs e-series miracle

    I've never been a fan of Grado Labs headphones, or open-back headphones for that matter, but this new e-series has taken me by surprise, i must say; wow oh wow, the new e-series is quite something.   The spiel from Grados website...   . Every single component, surface, and material...

    Grado wood cups

    I want a set of the wooden cups for my Grado SR80 (non "i" version). I was wondering what I could expect in the way of improved sound if any. I'm honestly largely looking at them for aesthetic reasons, but I can reasonably expect improved sound. Does anyone have this combination, and if so what...

    Can an EQ app for the iPhone 5 hurt your IEMs?

    First off, I am no audiophile but I know a few terms from working with car audio for a short bit to include crossovers, curves, EQ, clipping etc.. Here's my equipment; iPhone 5 utilizing the app: EQ 10 Equalizer for the iPhone 5 by David Ross and my trusty Senn's IE8's set at a little more then...

    Beyer headband for Grado?

    So on my 225s that I love, I now realize how much I dislike the standard Grado headband. my SR80s have a wide leather one that is fairly comfortable. But this vinyl one isn't so great. I was curious, I've seen the beyer headbands that snap on ( 770s and 880s i believe ) and I'm wondering if...

    For $100, what's better than Sol Republic Tracks?

    I really like the sound of my Tracks. However, since they're on-ear, they hurt after about an hour. The bass is fantastic. I have a few headphones, all around $100 or less. I have a pair of Grado SR80's, but they're too bright. They expose flaws in MP3, of which a large portion of my music...
