If these highs start to mellow out a bit I don't think I would want a warm can. That is what the 225's were. I like the crisp highs.It gives you that feeling of air.

Some of my favorite rocking headphone moments came from a 325i and Channel Islands VHP-1 headphone amp (Now replaced by the VHP-2, which I haven't heard). Very high-current amps, and given enough current the 325i can put out detail faster than anything I've heard yet.

9 Hours and the treble is starting to subside.

The first day was scary. My 325's sounded very tinny I guess you could say. Now, after 9 or so hours they are really starting to warm up.

You really gotta let new cans burn-in for 50-100 hours before the sound starts to "settle-down"....

True. I am not worried. Now. I just wanted to listen to them from the start.

Yeah, some peeps, just can't stand to let their new cans "just lay there" burning-in for a couple of days.
The torture is too much....

At the moment they appear to be getting thin on me. I don't know if it is a transitional thing or if my source is the problem. so far I have been listening mostly with a computer at work and my ipod. I need to put some time in with my SOHA at home.They still only have about 12 hours on them though. Some songs are sounding very bright. These are definitely sounding different from my 225's. The detail on these is great though. I can hear things I never heard before with grados. I think to make these things sound great you need a good tube amp with the right tube combo. I would imagine a Mapletree or Melos and hopefully my SOHA once I put in the jisbos buffers too will make these cans sing.These appear to be a very current hungry can.In comparison to 225's these are a lot more tight and snappy. On the song gravity by john mayer I can hear the entering cymbal go a lot farther and there are little voices and extra beats in recordings that I can hear that I never heard before. I think like any can you need to adjust your system to accomodate each can since every can will react differently in any system. At least that is what I have experienced so far in my audiophile career. As short as it is(2 years).
