Conclusion: The clearest richest headphones i ever heard. Cost a lot but, well worth it. I have another company's headphones that is very expensive but have to crank my apm way up to get sound and it is not as clear and rich the grado. With the grado i just turn the amp up a quarter of the way.
Summary: I am using PS-1000 with the Cowon S-9 mp3, with it's BBE kicked up to 7, and mach bass all the way on 10. Running a Kimber kable mini to a Nuforce icon HDP DAC. My music downloads are 128. Some up to 320.
Summary: When approaching *the Grado*, every nerve within my frame tingles with anticipation. Senses crave new satisfaction yet fear the unknown summits to which they may be led, innocent as babes. First, the physical: we are not worthy.

Summary: i was looking for a cheap pair of headphones so i clicked these and sent off for them. When they arrived i played them straight away and i guess there okay for a budget pair but you can tell they are not expensive .
Summary: Je n'ai malheureusement pas pu tester les qualités et caractéristiques du son "grado" que tout le monde vante, sur ce modèle définit comme neutre et monitorage, car l'inconfort du port de ce casque est tel que je l'ai renvoyé 24 heures après réception.
