I saw 2 versions of the MS1: original and 2009. What is difference between them?

Get this pair of headphone (used) from ebay.

I was quite surprised with the sound quality when first listen to it, I just lovin' it! And I already thinking to get the grado 325i or 225i in the future..

 

But the stock earpad is just killing me !

Having a spare of Denon D2000 earpad so I moded to use the D2000 earpad on the MS1 and its just lot better comfort than the stock.

 

Since it has a bright sound signature when I listen to bass-heavy genre I paired it with the Digizoid ZO2.3 to add some bass and subwoofer effect (I set the ZO2 around 4-7 step up from 'neutral') and its just great for my taste.. but for other genre it sounds great straight from the O2 amp. This is just one hell of a can ..

The new ones, MS1i, have larger cups like with these Grados the left being the new "i" version....

ahhhhhhh sunday morning with ms1's

post #2887 of 3009

Bought a pair of ms1 from the classifieds section and really like them. Compare well to the sr225i i had before. The pads on these are horrible though so im probably gonna buy bowl pads. How does it change the sound?

i love my ms1's, i also have the 225i's

as for the pads, vs bowls , i like both for different reasons, i find the pads more comfortable, but it adds a very slight veil

as one might expect , so i quarter modded them, still comfortable, but clearer

the bowls, i've done the tape mod, which increases the bass, makes the ms1's sound as good as, if not better to me

than the 225 with the stock l-cushes (bowls)

the bowls also help create a little larger soundstage , it just expands

enjoy your new cans !

Ordered some bowl pads from amazon. Hopefully it'll further improve the sound of these. Enjoying these so far.

So far I'm liking the bowls on these. Definitely makes them more airy, spacious and less grainy. It can be thin sounding on loud tracks but nonetheless I like them! smily_headphones1.gif

the ms1 , with bowls, has got to be one of the best, if not the best $100 headphones out there, i know its the best i've heard .

for some music, especially lesser recordings its more enjoyable than my sr225i

My L cush pads came in today and went on the MS1i. Listening to the new Daft Punk album is a nice trip. They are a bit uncomfortable however.

I found that it as well. Not horrible though. I find myself going back to the reverse hd414 pads because of the comfort and warmer sound. The bowl pads makes my ms-1 a bit too treble tilted for my liking.

Currently using the 414 quater modded with the red and blue color dye. But sad to say my ms1 is busted.. Getting it checked again today.
post #2895 of 3009

Just got my first set of Alessandro/Grados ever. MS1. Such a great sound! I paid $80 for like new and I'm considering modding. If I like the stock pads better than HD414, should I quarter mod?
