Those old out of production Grado's always cost a fair amount. From what I see those are not your normal RS1's? May be wrong.

Since it has the wood box and the pink drivers, I'm thinking they command more than the normal RS-1's, perhaps in the $600-700 range. $1100 though? That's good condition HP1000 territory...

As they say, buyer beware!

 

With the box and being older out of production drivers (though I prefer the RS1i to the pink drivers), I would say $550 max.

Oh man, maybe in 2009.  Bad condition has been getting way more than that lately.  I know one person who dropped $2800 for pristine set (unless you're talking Yammy's not Grados.)

Tried SRD7mk2 with my Xin Supermacro3 portable headphone amp(blackgate modded,3x BUF634)

result is surprising good! It's refined and transparent,

I got even a little larger sound stage and better bass impact than my modded T1S

(T1S is more musical & warmer)

 

just need to turn the volume knob to 10 o'clock to get enough volume

with the SRD7mk2,the Lambdas are more efficient than AKG K340/K240s

It's quite strange that this thread has reminded my RS-1s are being neglected... 

 

Just got them out - I wish they had pink drivers ;_;

I think I know what you guys are talking about. Perhaps the Maggies would suit you for speakers. I love direct "in the face" sound with realistic impact and listen to live recordings mostly. When I close my eyes with a good recording they sound just like two stacks of a perfect PA right in front of me. OTOH solo vocalists and small acoustic bands sound a bit too big. Can't win 'em all ...

 

I understand the Hifiman and Audeze headphones are planarmagnetics, too. Birds of a feather so to speak.

 

Just ordered the leather pads for my LNS from Audiocubes. I'm intrigued.

 

Best regards, Jörg.

Yes...  I'd like to hear an LCD-2 with a ribbon tweeter added above 4,000 Hz  ... DSP xover bi-amped of course  wink.gif

Heard the lambda professional, like its name,really a studio/pro sounding headphone!

uncolored,powerful,realistic bass, neutral mids,

 

the only thing I don't like is the high frequency brightness

feedback doesnt matter , it must be hand to hand deal only , as the seller himself dont know what the item should sound like ( and what the condition must be ) i woldnt have dealt with him even if feedback was 100%.

cheap as it may be ( for orpheus ) you must have 5-10 K spare also ( else its not a big deal to search for relatives in UK,  for an Indian :P )
