Summary: Dear listeners. Don't fool yourself by trusting too much all those reviews of headphones which are put in this website. Many of them are simply are based on not careful listening, audio adjustment, and quite reckless judgement.
Summary: Until I bought my first pair of Grados, I found myself sending a lot of headphones back, including expensive cans from Bose and Shure. Louder is not necessarily better, especially if the signal separation is mud.
Summary: Well...initially with my Antique Sound Labs MG Head OTL Mark III with a Telefunken 12AX7 and a pair of very nice J/J EL84's in OTL mode I was lukewarm with these especially when comparing them to my Sennheiser HD-650's!!!
Summary: As a previous owner of the fantastic sounding! Grado RS1 I am amazed at the sound reproduction of the new Grado Flagship model the GS1000. Right out of the box the audio quality is superior to the RS1's. Great sonic detail!, great sense of musical spaciousness!, great instrumental layering!
