After spending time again with my Grado SR-60's I really do like being able to compare those to my Audeze LCD-2CB's. I notice that the Grados deliver a sound which seems to have a wider soundstage but loses out in precision and balance relative to my Audeze headset. Dependent on the recording, the Audeze tends to be consistent across all genres of music whereas I feel that the Grados tend to shine in both jazz and classical music a lot more. This is my opinion but I feel that the Grados I own tend to be slightly more bass heavy than my Audeze but by sacrificing detail, they can win in other respects such as musical energy for some recordings. However, the Grados don't resolve some recordings very well such as the early albums of Public Enemy where on my Audeze pair I can hear the single tracks of the complex production of The Bomb Squad. The Grados tend to be a tad muddier with relatively complex music, particularly old school hip-hop (which is a specialty of mine...) At least the Grados are easier to pack up for school than my full-sized Audeze set.
