Well, RS2X in da hoose, comparing with my 325x and having some pad fun to boot.

Didn't take long to just not bother with the 325, just can't compete with the RS2x, just muddy in comparison. I've pad rolled the 325 to oblivion and back and always came back to the stock F. Seems I'm doing the same with the RS2x, just keep coming back to the L.


G is ok, tape mod awful, and L is poor on the 325 and F poor on the RS2x, and the comfy just ok on both.

Interestingly I have cut a hole in some comfies and use them upside down on both and they sound great! Going to experiment more with those.

I can't dial some EQ into the 325s to get them remotely close to the RS2x, but I can sneak a little bit more bass into the RS2x and it's fantastic. I use UAPP/Qobuz with Mojo2.

The RS2x are well worth the money for me, just opens up the music , imaging and clarity just suck you in. You forget you are gear testing and just enjoy .

Use lots of tracks to test but Eva Cassidy has never sound so good neither has Cat Stevens but Sandstorm Darude just cracked a beat and took me back to the clubs.

Superb headphones

This is my hemp with jack 3,5mm connectors and sr60x drivers, it works great but I ve listened not enough to the original for remembering how it sounded. I m evaluating if leave it as it is or spend 130€ to replace the driver with the originals one

RS2e with some Mojo2 bass boost works the same, it gives them what they need and they sound fantastic like that.

Sold off SR325X and was contemplating selling Hemp but had a listen again and it's good ! Besides it match with the colour of my gold amp. :) So perhaps it might live for a little longer.

One mans loss is another mans window off opportunity
My 325x have also departed me on loan to my brother but my RSx-1 won't be going anywhere

Sorry for the delay, quite the busy day. I will list some choices I have and like and 👀 look to follow up with thoughts and impressions and keep it solely to the GS3000x.
Note: listing is currently random but that will eventually change.

TEAC HA-501 dual mono class A
HeadAmp Gilmore Lite mk2/ class A
with Golden Reference Power Supply
Mjolnir Dyna Low
Violectric V200
Grado Signature HPA-1
ALO PanAm, Gateway & Passage
Cavalli Audio Liquid Carbon (1st variant)
Monolith Cavalli Liquid Spark
Schiit Lyr

I am not including any of my portable/transportable amps a number of which sound great with Grados. Should anyone have an interest in that catagory PM me directly or just post here.

Back to some nice blues with Mike Bloomfield.
Joe, did you mean to say Harley-Davidson Dyna Low Rider, Mjolnir Dynalo?
I'm confused as the whether you're discussing amplifiers or motorcycles?

Anyone going to Toronto AudioFest (October 20-22) this year? I went last year and spent extensive time at the Grado booth. If anyone wants my Hemp I can sell it in-person at TAF for $350 CAD.

Interestingly, Totem Acoustic, which had a large presence last year, is absent this year. Wonder what happened. I recently bought their Kin Play Mini to pair with my TV.

Hi,

Can anyone say if my 225e drivers look ok?

What you thinking ? To be honest you're best to do more pics from the other side , most E drivers were red , not all , some dark. Mine are red. Do they sound funny or wrong ?
