Look what my wife, who swore she would not ever give me any more headphones (after buying me Grado GW100, Grado Hemp, and Sony MDR-Z7 over the years to bring my collection up to about 50 pairs), gave me for my major birthday today!
If my girlfriend gave me those for my birthday...she would end up being my wife.

I wondered if anyone here has any experience or info about Geshelli HP amps and DACs. They seem to be aiming for performance at a very reasonable price. A friend reached out to me asking about them and I found a few things online. His main phone is a Grado RS2x.

Thanks for any thoughts.

By reputation, they punch above their price points. Still waiting for my J2+sparkos DAC to arrive (and I have no idea how long it will take). There are some good reviews online, which you probably found. Their forthcoming amps (more like $600, but not on their website yet) are a collaboration with Sparkos and should be great. Their regular $200-$300 amps look solid for the money, but I have never heard one. Love the family business angle. Husband designs the products, wife is the CEO, kids run sales and distribution and Grandpa Geshelli makes all the wood casings!

Oof. Flash heat wave in April and the building won't turn on the AC. Had to unplug my DAC and amp and go back to the trusty Micro iDSD BL because it outputs far less heat. Grados still sound great with it :relaxed:

"Better" equipment isn't always better haha.

Which is the current Grado lineup winner for metalcore music? Bonus points if they are also good with indie/folk (Iron and Wine etc). Currently using the HD650 and I want something a little more aggressive/forward in the mids and maybe a little more soundstage. I was looking at the GS1000X but don't like that there are no second-hand options yet.

The 325x with the G "bowl" pads have been great with me for bands like Orange Goblin (stoner doom metal) and any indie/folk I throw at them.

Glad to know there's someone else out there who likes heavy and soft stuff in equal measure! :)

I was also looking at the 325x. Thanks for the rec, definitely going to consider these. If only I could find somewhere to try them out.

Go to ‘Gradolabs.com’, in section ‘where to buy’, try Washington State.

I first heard the 325x at Definitive Audio on Roosevelt Way in Seattle. Near the Green Lake area.

Good to know, I wonder if they have the GS1000X. I might have to give them a call.

How about Amazon? Nothing beats a home demo.

Grado is sold by third party there, so I'm not sure I would be able to return them after using them?

They're sold by 4ourears, pretty sure that's the Grado store.
Yeah it says 4ourears is the Grado store. I read that only things sold by Amazon directly can be returned when already opened, and that third party sellers can deny returns on opened products?
