    Default Like Skip, I joined

    My first set of cans!!!! Grado SR255i's. I was originally shooting for the 325i's but after much research and for my usage, I ended up saving a hundred bucks went with the lower end.

    There's a 30 day trial, so if worst comes to worst.................

    Congrats. Hope you enjoy them. I don't get to listen to mine as much as I might like, but it is very relaxing to have some decent sound when doing work at home.

    The 225's are the king of $$ vs sound in the Grado line up.

    Thank you for the kind word, I agonized over the 225 vs 325 and gathered that for the xtra 100 the minimal jump in sq didn't warrant the buy.

    I had the SR-80, which I enjoyed for many years, then upgraded to the 225i. It was a very nice improvement. I also found the 225i the sweet spot when it comes to performance for price.

    Thanks again for more encouragement, my order should show up early next week, looking forward to the demo.

    The 225i's showed up. First initial impression; very nice, clear and detailed. I already knew these were open backs so there's no noise cancellation but that doesn't concern me since I listen to 2ch in solitude.

    I have no dedicated amp as of yet, but straight off the Onk 807 is providing great sound.

    As a bonus, I was pleasantly surprised to see an XL Grado T-shirt with my order.

    When watching movies, I can utilize mono, stereo and DTS surround, with music, mono, stereo and pure audio.
