what set of head phones? - Page 4

post #31 of 52
nononono thats on stock grado's but one you "liberate" them its a totaly difrent animal. the spacers are the key. if you read that thread it was mentioned that stock grados with gs1000 pads sound like bawls but if you put the spacers on them then they *aperantly* bloom.

if you notice the modder in that thread had to make their own spacers due to not being able to find them commercially. That isn't exactly a mod many can recreate.

They definitely aren't as good as my HD555s for gaming, but they aren't by any means terrible.

I don't have much else to compare to except to say they are better than my SR225s.

yea grado's have a very direct sound to them like sitting in the middle of the stage.

and the liberater mod is absolutely simple.
1 take off earpad
2 attach liberater/ diy spacer
3 put earpad on
4 done.

and aparently the soundstage with the mod is

The biggest change, the real sugarpiece of the MS 1000 in comparison to stock, is the enormous monstrous soundscape it provides.
but yea if you feel like geting the 555s you could always get a pair of 60/80/ms1s another time to play around with. lots of mods can be done with those cans. plus they work great for portables

I hate how everyone suggests A700s, even in a higher price range. The A900s are the top of the line. Just because Newegg only carries one model doesn't mean there is only one model.
