    Why wouldn't they need an amp? lol

    Often times, (read: not always) high impedance=hard to drive.

    Anyway, I missed the part in the specs that said that the GR8 is both high impedance and high sensitivity. The high sensitivity part might cancel out the need for an amp but then we wouldn't really know until first impressions come out.

    Oh, those look purty. Might actually start saving up for some headphones above $100. After I get that iPod touch 3G.

    And just after we ordered the HF2. Boo, Grado. lol

    Even as a Grado fanboy, I think they look fug, hahahaha.

    Will probably cost $500 or something outside the States. Again, boo, Grado.
