I love them to death....it just becomes that they deserve most head time than they are receiving sort of thin

 

I understand that, part of the reason I returned the RS1i in the first place was because I thought the HD800 that I already owned more than made up for the need of a reference class headphone.

yeah, to be honest....that is my problem....I love the rs1i....but I just don't reach for it that much, I enjoy it when I do......but I am usually listening to the hd800

Ah hah, I see in your sig that at one time you owned the HD650 as well, so did I and I made the jump to the HD800 and have been very happy with it.  But having owed the PS500e for a few weeks it has made me realize there might be something to this e series that I'm not willing to give up on the RS1 just yet.

When I had a whole bunch of Grados next to each other, I felt like I could pursue other headphones and just keep anything from an Sr60 to Rs2 for my Grado fix, but the Rs1 had something else in mind, and I keep wanting to hear it. Not only that, but I wanted to hear the older buttoned rs1 as I bought an Rs1i and it really didn't do it for me.

yeah, I owned it for about 7 months....it led my to the hd800

 

I can not even tell you what it was about the hd650....it was the weirdest thing.....it was so kicked back and relaxing...almost boring at times....but I kept reaching for it  :smile:

 

It is the one headphone that I have owned, that I cant really explain to well.....other than you could wear it forever and it never got fatiguing

Well....this could happen  :p

 

Like I said...I love the hell out of the rs1i....mine has thousands and thousands of hours on it :smile:

 

At this point and time it is just not what I reach for the most and it really deserves to be on a head......I will not get rid of it until I feel I have too.

 

It is just hard for me to justify having that much money in them and me not using them like I should.

The HD650 was my first audiophile headphone and I liked it but then I purchased the SR325is and never looked back.  Except for the HD800 because I knew Sennheiser was capable of making a phenomenal headphone.

Yeah, I also owned the 325is and I loved them very much....great cans.

 

I got rid of them after I bought my RS1i.....I kept them both for quite awhile before I decided what I liked better.

 

I just sold my HD650 this week...for the same reason , as I just was not grabbing for it much anymore.

Whirlwind I totally understand getting rid of cans you don't use enough... I'm basically down to my HD800, RS1, PS500 and AD2000x... At one point I had nearly 20 cans in house. I would say keep your RS1 for the same reason I keep my 225i even though they don't get used a ton they have a place... Plus the emotional attachment... My 225's were my first real headphone, plus they are beautiful (black and white ebony cups) kind just need them around to remember where I came from.
