What exactly are the Alessandro MS1s?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have read a bunch of post about the MS1s being modified Grados. And many opinions about the sound quality and where they fall in on the Grado heaphones scale. But what I want to know is; what are they really? Are they modified SR80s, SR125s or etc.? Not speculations or opinions, but maybe actual data from Grado or Alessandro about them. Or maybe even a physical comparison of the MS1s to the Grado line.

Wouldn't mind a bit of detailed info myself, I've been thinking of getting them in but don't really know exactly where they fit in regards to each other / grado etc.

When I e-mailed Alessandro about them, he said they were closest to the SR-125s.

Alessandro MS1

In my opinion, the Alessandro MS1 is one of the best bargains in headphones for those who enjoy the Grado sound. They are better than the SR80's for sure, having a somewhat flatter more neutral sound. In other words they capture the great dynamic sound and impact of Grados with less of the aggressive treble.
Call them 'refined' Grados.
Mine came with a 1/4" plug, but I've heard you can order them with a mini.
If I remember correctly the $99 price includes shipping.

In the process of researching the Alessandro MS-1's I compiled some 20 pages of posts from here and headwize. Summary: 1)Some controversy about whether the MS-1's are upgraded sr-80's or just modded sr-125's. 2)They are reputed to be more neutral/analytical than either. 3)Excellent value.

If you want to read the original posts, you can do the searches on both forums or e-mail me and I'll send them to you.

What is your e-mail? We can't get your e-mail address from your profile. It says you don't want to get e-mails from this forum.

Could you just e-mail the links to me?

I didn't save the links, just the text. Let me know if you want it. I just changed my profile to allow access to my email address.

=o

 

There was no need to bump, should've just PM'd the guy.

Guy hasn't even been on the forum since '04.

Might be hard to reach him.
