More Headphone Madness :)


So these finally reached home a while ago.


Balanced Grado RS2. Terminated with a male XLR and the adapter for RSA/ALO balanced usage. Been wanting something for just my guitar intensive blues and 60s rock and roll which is predominately what I listen to. It was always going to be a Grado. Narrowed it down to the RS2 and RS1. They both sounded pretty much the same to my ears but the highs seemed a bit more prominent on the RS1 which led to me picking the RS2 over them.

Haven't had enough time to enjoy them for a long stretch, thankfully tomorrow is an off day

Re: More Headphone Madness :)

Congrats... Never thought of using XLR for balanced input for headphones. I just use the XLR for mics.... Does it make a big difference as I dont get any interference with my normal quarter inch jacks

Damn wasted my off day by waking up at 1:30 PM or did I

The XLR in my case is more for ease of use with different sources. XLR with desktop amps (don't own one anymore), RSA balanced for the portable amp and regular 1/4 and 1/8 jacks. The last 3 being with adapters.

Technically should give me cleaner sound with better soundstage when running in a fully balanced setup. I've stayed away from buying a balanced DAC in the hope that someone will come out with a balanced output portable DAC, with rumors afloat that RSA, ALO and Cyper Labs have one in the pipeline. Will wait for 5/6 months or end up buying the HRT balanced DAC for desktop use

What kind of work do you do with the mics btw?

Re: More Headphone Madness :)

I just use a couple of normal dynamic mics to record audio for videos... Use it with a audio interface (DAC + Mixer) called Steinberg CI1 as it serves my purpose well... Have headphone outs for monitoring that I connect my Shure 440 monitor headphones

Nice! Don't think I'll ever have the patience to do something like that
