  1. Last year I found a pair of Grado Sr100's with red lettering in my attic, and have been using them as my daily driver for a while. I was wondering what would be a modern day equivalent for the sr100's.
  2. These are a special pair of limited edition Grados that live up to their name. Grado started in 1952/1953 and has been thriving ever since. This year they decided to put out a pair of special edition headphones, and it's the first ever they've built out of a Brooklyn Tree (Maple). Given that this isn't their usual wood, it has some interesting differences from the other Grados, e.g. RS2i, RS1i, HF-1, HF-2, and even the GS1000. I find these to be more controlled but very dynamic in the midrange with improved clarity on the low and high end. I would find these most similar to the RS1i, but I find myself liking these more and more. I have owned a ton of Grados, and I wish I could keep these, but I have too many and I'll probably regret selling these like I did the W3000 ANV when they first came out. Technical Design: Vented diaphragm Wooden air chamber UHPLC copper voice coil wire Specifications: ◦Driver Type: Dynamic ◦Impedance @ 1kHz: 32 ohms ◦Sensitivity: 99.8 dB SPL/V ◦Frequency Response: 13Hz - 29kHz ◦Connector Type: 3.5mm (1/8") ◦Cable Length: 10 ft.

Non scuffing and has room for accessories ($35 value) If you're a Grado aficionado you'll like these. Reminds me of the run they did for Head-Fi (HF-1 & HF-2).
  3. Love my Grados

    Just thought I'd share my recent experience. Bought a pair of SR325is quite a few months ago, and paired them with a Grant Fidelity DAC11, with their upgraded huge fat mains cable. Connected to my pcs USB. They were good from day 1, ok the phones are a bit painful after awhile of listening, but no pain, no gain! I've been letting the cans and amp play continuously, but only intermittently when I pop out or am not using them. Not much of a burn in, maybe 30 hrs or so. Anyway, today was a revelation. Suddenly I've noticed a considerable improvement, all the stuff we hear about. A much improved but still small soundstage. Incredible, tight and airy bass. Gorgeous trebles. Instruments sound like they are being played next to you. I found myself totally addicted, spending a good 4hrs trying all my favourites. Everything sounds so 'real', natural. The musical nature is stunning. Yes they are very forensic, every finger movement on guitar strings revealed, but that's what I love. What most impressed me was a great Vanguard Studios CD compilation of Joan Baez tracks. I was almost brought to tears by some of her early recordings, so pure is her voice and guitar playing. Hell, the best recordings were dated 1965! 48 year old analog recordings pushing gorgeous sounds into my ears. Incredible stuff. Some of the bass/sub-bass is hyper realistic, you can FEEL the air vibrating. Then I heard an awful song, 'can't touch this' by MC Hammer! But straight away, I was floored by his voice, deep and resonant, airy and breathing. Almost sounds like he had a cold! I'd never noticed his voice before, and certainly never FELT it. Now I was. I never believed all the hype about burn in, now I'm a true believer! Now I'm seriously addicted to listening and thinking of all the ways to slowly upgrade. Might test a Graham Slee HP amp, hearing great stories about them. I know I'll eventually end up getting an RS1 or even GS 1000, but in a way I'll enjoy the anticipation of a slow upgrade path. I'm already in heaven, so it's scary what I could be hearing in a yr or so. I've read so many differing opinions about Grados. Well I've just written another one. I love em and will stay with them for as long as I feel these emotions I felt today.
  4. This is my first Grado 'woodie', excepting any Grado headphones where the wood parts are inside of the earcups only. I describe the sound compared to the SR325e, since I don't have a sense of how any of the Grado 'RS' series sound. This is a very good headphone, but be aware that some of the $650 USD price is because of the limited material from that Brooklyn tree.

  5. I've always wanted one of these, but couldn't justify it until recently. I've been disappointed with more than a few expensive purchases in the past, but not this time. The PS-1000e is very different from the AKG K812, Beyer T1, and Sennheiser HD800 headphones that I've owned, physically and sonically, so rather than try to summarize here what's in the review (too complicated), I'll just point to the full review below.

  6. Here's a small portable on-ear headband-behind-the-head headphone that has a Grado sound more-or-less. I can only compare it to the SR325e at present (besides the 4 portables I compared to in the review) as far as Grado Sound is concerned, so here's the recap, compared to the SR325e: Weaker lower bass (although the overall bass on most tracks is pretty good), a tendency for driver breakup on a few tracks (less than one percent of mine), a comparable treble with one little exception - there's a slight sense of sibilance or a peak in the mid treble, but I don't think it's a result mainly of the small 7 khz peak, I think the 4 khz recess ahead of the 7 khz peak is how it becomes more noticeable. But it's actually very slight and non-irritating compared to sibilance in many headphones I've had. I like it, but would not advise using it with EDM that has strong long-duration deep bass tones, which can cause driver breakup. Normal bass, even heavy bass, hasn't been a problem.

  7. The Grado SR-325e is my first review of one of the new 'e' series headphones. The short story: Hi-Fi, neutral, extended, with authentic musical tone. Grado SR-325e Audiophile Stereo Headphone review
