    Owned D5000 and T5P. Would K812 or GS1000i be complementation?

    I owned my D5000 and T5P for half a year. Now it's time to have something different. I'm looking for a pair of headphones coming as a complementation instead of a replacement. Any recommendation between K812 and GS1000i? Or any other cans?

    Open letter to John Grado

    Dear Mr. Grado,   I'll make it brief. I won't try to claim much of your time. So, I'll spare you the long autobiographical opening paragraph where I'd try to impress upon you that there is important feedback on your work in this post.

    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.

    Amp recommendations for Grado GS1000i

          Hello   I just bought me a pair of Grado GS1000i. I'm quite happy with them and I use for the moment a Rhinelander amplifier from Lehmann Audio. So far so good but I'm thinking if the headphones maybe would gain much with a better amp.    Here in Europe I've seen them paired...

    Is there a good diffrenece between the Grado's GS1000 and GS1000i?

    I know the "i" in GS1000i means improve but by how much. Is it worth it to get a used GS1000 or the new improve GS1000i ??? Any idea guys? I can get a GS1000 easier than the new gs1000"i" version. Right now I'm using Grado's PS500.

    Grado HPA-1 & GS1000i

    I'm currently using an RA-1 with my GS1000i headphones and would like some opinions regarding the HPA-1.    From what I have gathered, generally, the HPA-1 has "less grain" than the RA-1.   From pictures I have seen of both amps, the HPA-1 appears to be better built even though it...
