I really like the way Grados sound, I just can't stand to wear them for more than 15 minutes at a time. They need to look into ergonomics one of these days.

I've heard previous models were like that. Have you tried any of the models in the last few years? They're supposedly considerably more comfortable. I never tried the "old" style, so I can't compare, but I can wear mind for hours on and not even notice them.

I haven't tried the new ones. Might have to give the SR60 a try again.

My Audio Technica ATH-M30 s arrived today. Excellent sound quality from them too.

Quick question....is it normal to have to turn the volume way higher up on the amp using headphones than you would usually sit and listen to thro the speakers?

Finally upgraded from the Grado SR60's to the SR325i's. I didn't think I'd be as immediately impresses as I've been. Pretty awesome so far.

Yes !

"When I finally laid my hands on a pair, I put on three pieces music," he said. "You won't believe me, but I heard nuances in these that I could only pick up before" on large speakers with sound that fills a room.

I believe the balance on my Grado 325is is off, the left side seems to be producing more volume. It's not a huge difference, but noticeable. I've tried flipping it around on both ears to make sure I'm not just more sensitive in one year, and it seems different regardless of the ear I use. Were they cheaper headphones, I wouldn't care, but I think I may have to try to return these to Amazon and have them send me a new pair. Maybe moref break in / burn in time will help, but I'm not super optimistic after about a 24 hrs' worth.

Sennheiser, BeyerDynamic, Shure, AudioTechnica, and Grado seem to be the top tier brand. I have Sennheiser 555s and I'm not a huge fan of them, they don't always keep up with some of the music I listen to. I'd like the 600 or the 650.

For earbud styles, Westone over all of them.

I used an incorrect term. They are worn in the ear, yes, but they are decidedly not "earbuds". Look em up..they're not cheap however.

I know what you're talking about. I'm just messing with you either way.
