If you order from Amazon, and there's an issue with the product, they will ship it back to them for free and give you the choice of a refund or exchange. Might help your situation. Bummer to hear those haven't worked out for you yet!

I did get a replacement and they work fine. They are a bit bassy compared to any of the other phones I have besides maybe the hd650's. They are pretty pleasant with a bit of a treble push and loudness curve on eq.

wearing gym pants around the house today while washing a load of clothes made me really miss my clip zip which was stolen. kind of broke and trying to save money so i improvised with what i had. i cut down an old nametag from work, punched a hole in it and attached a keychain. then i snapped the case on it with the nametag inside. got both an nfl necklace thing and carbiner attached to it.

Straight from Japan.
They're not even out of the box yet, so impressions will have to come later.

They're a little bass-heavy out of the box, but don't sound muffled either...plenty of detail....and they are easily powered by my Clip Zip or my volume-capped UK-sourced Sony. They're definitely a step up from the Senn PX90, Koss KTXPro1, and JVC HA-S600 that I own. In fact, they're a contender for best of my collection with the Audio Technicas that I have.

My Grados are DOA (need a new cable) but I know for damn sure they don't have the bass these things have.

I'm certainly considering it.

I think sending them in to Grado would only cost me something like $25 plus shipping to get it done,IIRC, but that would give me the same big unwieldy cable as I've had, and I really don't want that again....lol. I may wait until tax time to get them done, unless work picks up....not like I don't have other headphones to use between now and then.

Seriously I was winking, don't you think it's time you tried some cables yourself, it's really not that hard. BTW Syndrome, no offense I know you do good work.
