In great condition, no intermittent shorts, static etc.
  Just checked their website, and I did in fact call them up trying to get in on their clearance sale. The guy checked and came back to let me know the i's indeed out of stock. At this point I'm not in too much of a rush anymore. I think I'd prefer a first of second owner RS-1 Classic over NOS. Waiting for burn-in is a very tedious affair. There's this RS-1i on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Grado-RS1i-headphones-/131575418266?hash=item1ea2818d9a
  I saw that and inquired here not too long ago, before ordering my RS-2i. What I know is they don't have an online presence. Overture Audio is I think an older lead I've already contacted.  I've had my chances for an RS-1i including three in H-Fi classified, and a new one at Crutchfield that I passed up for several weeks till too late. There *will* be opportunities.
  Bummers.  If any friendly Grado aficionado feel the need to down-scale--feel free to contact me for an RS-1/RS1i in excellent cond. :)
   I received an email response from LP Gear, stating my payment has been refunded, and checking pp indeed it has. Hope you have better luck!
Thanks! I'll definitely leave some impressions.  Ya gotta love it! 
 Ah progress. I just sent payment on the GS-1 in Head-Fi Classified, with dact/dynalo+ modules. Crazy. :O)
  Have you received any word yet? I haven't, other than the first email from LP Gear. My CC shows charge pending.
  Not great cinema but great entertainment. Funny-- although the constant reuse of themes he's already used too many times gets boring. Uma Thurman's feet are not sexy. "The Cruel Tutelage of Pai Mei" including the adjunct with Elle Driver was brilliant. Best delivered line - Darryl Hannah: "That's right, I killed your master." Sonny Chiba scene was cool.
   When I had brother's RS-1 Classic with my Headamp GS-1/Anedio D1 system, he also sent along his Grado RA-1. I thought the RA-1 acquitted itself very well. Its probably not worth the going rate at retail (or even some used prices), but I thought it added a bit of richness to the RS-1 sound that I really liked.
