Hello all! I'm new to the hi-fi scene and am looking to start off with a pair of Grados. But, it looks like Grado has been sold out of the SR series on their site for a while. Any ideas of when they'll come back in stock? I'm looking to get a pair of SR80e's.

Yes I have. They still sound good, but very different from the F-cush pads. The treble is considerably boosted, the upper mids are a bit more forward, the lower-mids/upper-bass are much less warm, and the bass is less but the sub-bass is about the same.
Too my ears, this is the perfect description of how the F pads sound in comparison to the L cushions.

Ok Grado fans, so if Grado is were to be revamping the line up, which model are you most interested in hearing first?

Personally I feel most drawn to the Rs1. Ive always liked it more than the Rs2 but the e version was not a good all'rounder so understandably most preferred the Rs2e it seems. I'm curious to see what y'all think!? 🤔

Haha, I was also thinking about the ps500, it's about time it gets some more love around here!

Spent my early morning with HF2, which I understand is a sort of engineering prototype for PS500. VERY nice. :D

I think I had both the hf2 and the og ps500 at the same time at one point. I think I came to the conclusion that the hf2 was more less a ps500 with one less vent hole which made it less bassy than the ps500.

What does that mean?

What I do see is that it has white stitching, which is something that Grado has been doing recently.
I'm sure in the photo the headband as a cut out on the top with a full gap end to end. ? Which is why I called it open plan.
Whoops ??? Had a second look . And I'm wrong, it's a normal headband .....
Sorry ..

Omg What!? Haha, sorry guys too late we already saw it! 🤪🤪🤪

Jk, man John Grado is not gonna be happy with this leak. Lol

That headband looked cool, probably has better comfort or at least makes the headphones more stable on your head.
