Well, I have a birthday friday (17

) and really don't know what to get. But I'm definitely looking for rock phones to give some liveliness to my music as opposed to my HD555. Of course, I can't look anywhere else except grado

. Im caught between the 225 and 325. I'm a bass head and really like aggressiveness and want something to make the most of the Millett I just built. Is the $95 worth it for the 325s? The 325s are in my budget so money isnt the factor, just looking for the best bang for buck. So 225 or 325? Or feel free to suggest something else.

Hey, my B-Day is Thursday

Anywho, I definately prefer the 325i over the 225. Heck, just the build quality & coolness factor is worth the extra $100 (or less, check TTVJ

) The sound is also much better: more extension in both frequencies, a tad more soundstage, and the bass is more apparent.

I am a believer in excess.

I will tell you that my 225's left me wanting more. After hearing them I would gladly pay an extra $100 for the 325i's the upgrade bug had bitten. However the HF-1's appeared and I ended getting my upgrade and saving some dough.

It is your birthday, and this is head-fi.

I say treat yourself.

Todd's last 17 HF-1s are going on sale on Saturday, might want to go for them instead. I personally think all 17 are gonna be sold within the minute of the sale xD
If you don't make it, then you can always get one of these
