BTW do like grados myself- but only the lower end ones, would buy a set of SR80's if I could get them cheap enough. They're only sold as "audio snob" products over here for twice the price just because.
You can always get an Alessandro MS1 (100$ worldwide), which is a modified SR125. Probably the best deal in Grado-land.

Also, I personally use a Koss PortaPro for cycling. For what its worth, the wind is not particularly distracting, but then again, when I'm cycling I concentrate on the road and not on my music...

I've always been curious how they sound in comparison to my SR60i.

I'm curious about this myself... Sadly measurements of these cans are hard to come by. Based on reviews, they supposedly have slightly less harsh highs and a bit more bass, but I am wondering how much of this would be audible in a blind test.

Marvin, I don't know if you remember Almoxil and this very old thread here. It's brief but it's about Alessandro MS-1's and brief description by him in post #3 and in post #5 by Slaughter another blast from the past Based on what you told me the other day, you’d have to EQ some bass into these as well.
