So after much debate, and constantly talking myself out of buying a set, I finally took the plunge.
Although my Paug fantasy team got absolutely destroyed, I won my first championship in a league I've played in for 5 years. Gathered my winnings, took advantage of some free shipping and tax from Decibel in Chicago, and am now waiting for a box of 225s!!
If we could see these many waves that flow through clouds and sunken caves...

Just to add to my purchase story here, I want to include a conversation I had with a guy at work today:

Me: I finally pulled the trigger on some sweet headphones
My Boss: Wow, that's really cool (after I explained what they were to her)
Matt (another dude I work with): What kind of headphones are they?
Me: Grado RS225i
Matt: Oh, I thought you were going to say something sweet like Turtle Beach
Me: I'll take the Pepsi challenge with that Amsterdam shit any day of the week.
Matt: What?
Me: Exactly.

Ha!  Sounds like Matt hasn't seen Pulp Fiction 100+ times like most normal people.

Good choice, the ones I own as well.  Favorite pair of cans I've ever bought.

 :hereitisyousentimentalbastard Pretty sure he's on the gov't computers so he can't access all of the interwebz. I have high expectations for him to make up for this when he gets home this evening tho  :evil:

Do I need to point out that I'm the only one who brought a nipple to this thread as well? 


Less talk, more sexy girls wearing Grados
