    Im about to buy a Cowon S9, & after much research, would like to pair it with the Grado SR325i headphones. This is my first venture into MP3. Shure SE530 are fantastic by all accounts, but I prefer the sonic detail of larger cans. Has anyone ever paired the Cowon S9 with Grado SR325i headphones? Have any audiophiles ever paired it with any high-end cans & had there mind blown away? If so what were they. Help please!

    Which headphones?

    The Grado SR325is (notice the "s" on the end - the latest revision of this model) is a truly excellent headphone.

    The SR325is is low enough impedance and sensitive enough to be driven by a portable MP3 player (even the iPod), but also responds very well to being driven by higher quality sources, e.g. via a headphone amp.

    One question. How and where do you intend to listen with this setup?
