New Grado X-series - Any change in the highs?

I really like the sound of Grado, except for the highs, that are just a bit too much - At least on the models I’ve heard. (SR60E/80E/Hemp)

Has that changed in the new X-series?

I’ve been thinking of trying one of the X-models, and I’d like to know if there’s of them that are less sibilant/treble-y than the others. I don’t expect miracles. We are talking about Grado, after all.

Alternatively, is there a manufacturer that makes headphones that mimic the Grado sound minus the highs?

I have not heard them myself, but the reviews point out that the X series has taken on the sound of the Hemp, which did have the highs tamed. :slight_smile:
