had these 2 years now - still think they are fantastic. Though those Focals look very, very nice Julio
I think Seren I got my Grado SR 325 about the same time.....they are fantastic. I originally got a pair of SR 125's based on mastering engineers singing the praise of grado's for being able to look, so to speak, deep into the music. The Grado SR 325's are exciting to listen to. The detail and soundstage is amazing. The Focals do not have the same openness, they cant they are closed back and I would say that in a way they sound dull next to the Grado's and not that the Grados are hyped at all. What I perceive as dull is a neutrality which is what Focal is after with these cans in an attempt to engage the pro audio market. I believe Focal are going to make similar cans geared to the A/V - HiFi market.
