Are there any really great local headphone stores that I don't know about?

Really great headphone stores? There aren't any afaik. Your best bet is probably Hawthorne Audio in Ravenna. You can listen to some Grados and Sennheisers. I was reminded again during my recent visit to the store why I returned the SR225 to TTVJ after trying them out. You'll also find HD25-1 there, and it was very nice. If I need a small portable headphone, the HD25-1 will be it.

The Magnolia AV store in Bellevue used to have HD650 and some other hi-end Sennheisers for demo, but other Head-Fi'ers have reported recently that the headphones are gone.

I've been trying to find the RS-1's at a local store so I can audition them.

So far I've only heard the GS-1000 in the Grado line and loved it but again hard to find locally.

Newer Head-fi'er here in Bellingham saying hello!

 

I got into this hobby a year ago and have owned Grado 325is (from the beautiful reference-media.net store in Fairhaven) and am currently listening to an AKG Q701 with Nuforce Icon HD amp / 320k mp3 and flacs on Windows 7 in WASAPI exclusive mode.  It sounds incredible, but it would be fun to hear some other brands and some higher end stuff and geek out with somebody some time.

 

I plan to make it a priority to attend the next Head-Fi meet in Seattle, as well.

I like the Bellingham idea and would be interested, but would probably have to skip this one as I'm likely busy the Thanksgiving weekend.  I'll subscribe and keep watching this thread just in case my plans fall through or something else changes.

 

EDIT: I'm in the greater Vancouver BC area myself
