Just discussing various Grados now and getting info on what has what. I've said more then once that I'm sure John made them the best he could without complaining that a metal ring would 'complete the package' or any such thing. I'd say I've made it 'no deal.'
I don't think I can say it in any other way, it was just an observation. Don't get so riled up over it.
I wish Grado used metal parts on all their headphones from the SR125 and up. I know it's wishful thinking. For the cost of the headphones, I don't think it's unrealistic.
However, you'll see that I own both a GS1000i and a RS1i, so I don't let my wishful thinking stop me from enjoying what Grado has to offer. I went from an SR125 straight to the GS1000, an atypical upgrade path so maybe I've been spoiled.
Either way, I won't ever apologize for wanting the most for my money.
