New Grado Headphones

Grado released a whole new X-series of headphones.
I don’t know if there are any sonic changes but they improved comfort and the attached cable is braided now.

Has anyone heard one of the new Grados already?

I wonder if the SR60x could be a nice upgrade over my KPH30i. I always like to use small open headphones when taking a walk outside.

Plenty of impressions on Head-Fi. Sonic change for sure. If you’re looking for a similar sound tho I might suggest Sennheiser HD25 instead

cause why? :smiley:

Cause why what?

oops…forgot to click rpely to mochimashu comment about considering the HD25 over the new Grado X.

Bc it sounds closer to my ears. Grado is… well Grado (in a good way)

Nah, the HD25 are ugly, closed and even more plasticy than Grados.

You can mod it to be pretty cool haha, I got 3D print cups

It’s a legendary headphone used by DJs

From what I’ve seen on head-fi and the fact that it seems the Hemps were a test run of sorts for the new “x” generation, there is a sound change, at least for the 225/325.

They are now using the F-cush pads which boost the bass and reduce the treble around 4k-6k. They also help to make the sound more visceral since the driver is so close to the ear.

I think it’s also a good time to post this here.

Looks like we’ll be getting “x” version of the Reference series, Professional series, and some of the Statement series.
