Good call!  I got a HD600 from amazon.fr for £190 about 6 months ago; some good prices to be found from time to time.

 

And amazon.it currently has the RS1i for 600 euro (£487) which is not too bad. I'd expect to pay a bit extra for delivery (think it was 10 euro for the HD600s) but that's still under £500.

Regarding the red drivers, does the front of the driver (i.e. behind the mesh) look any different from normal/typical?

Nice!

 

As far as the Grado warranty is concerned, there should be no issues contacting the uk site for with help, in the instance of something going wrong? Even if you got them from Italy?

I'm not sure about the warranty. You may want to have it in writing from Armour UK (the Grado distributor and official repair location here). In my experience, they've been a bit useless with very poor communication when I've had issues with my headphones. I called Grado in NY and they said that they'd be happy to do any repair as long as I covered shipping costs (and I think I'd prefer to send them back to the factory rather than chancing it here).

If you do want to get them from the UK, advancedmp3players usually have a discount code on the go for 10% off or better, for first time buyers, and they're an authorised dealer.

Ok great. I'll look into it first.

 

Thanks so much for your advice.

I'm gonna thank you, but not as much as the other guy:evil:

 

 

 

 

 

 

But seriously - thanks.

 

I'm gonna ask a few more questions in the future, no doubt, and help like this really is priceless

Going back to an earlier post, if you look at the photos in this recent article, it looks like they're all red drivers now: http://www.supercompressor.com/tech/look-inside-grado-labs-where-the-world-s-best-headphones-are-made

Well guys I own an RS1i now... brand new...

 

It pairs great with the Glenn OTL! But then almost anything sounds good out of a Glenn amp lol

Congrats....I am sure you will enjoy the neck out of them.

I've been all over the Grado Apprec thread-but I just bought an RS1i from Jay upgrading from the 225i and enjoying it with some jazz right now.

Congrats to both you guys. Owning a pair of RS1i's makes one a better lover, you'll lose weight, and your hair will grow back. Just say'n.
