MS1000 vs RS1 vs GS1000 VS MS propost #1 of 114/10/09 at 5:41amThread StarterHave anyone compared their MS1000 with the high end grados? Is the MS1000 a good contender? or the MS1000 sound just another sub 400 range can?
Gear mentioned in this thread:post #2 of 114/10/09 at 6:34amI have both the gs1000i and ms1000 and to my ears the gs1000i is much more refined.
However, for the build cost of about $180 USD for the ms1000 it is a very nice phone.
I'm working on a comparison of those two right now and may have an rs1i to throw in the mix soon.post #3 of 114/10/09 at 6:48ampost #4 of 114/10/09 at 7:06ampost #5 of 114/10/09 at 8:10pmAn Ms1k is a fine improvement for the MS1 but the mod doesn't lift it up onto a much higher level.
The next step is a modded MsPro aka MsUltimate and this one is better than GS1000 imho.post #6 of 114/11/09 at 8:41amThread Starterpost #7 of 114/11/09 at 5:41pmpost #8 of 114/11/09 at 6:03pm...give me a little time though... Next two weeks are finals.
This gives me lots of time for casual listening. Afterward I will try to focus on comparisons.post #9 of 116/9/09 at 6:01ampost #10 of 118/26/10 at 2:48ampost #11 of 118/26/10 at 4:05am
