wider soundstage.. and breathing space on each instrument though the RS1i already has a good instrument separation for me but being exposed to flagship cans hehe sometimes left me desiring these on the RS1i but nevertheless, the RS1is are already very very good at their price range for me on presentation and everything.. very transparent. the PS1000 just gave me more listening bliss and is exactly the answer to some of my gripes then ...

No you still can't have my RS1i.

Can these also be used with pop/dance/electronic music?

Of course. Although we might have different definitions of "pop" here (I'm thinking Michael Jackson and Cher - you might be thinking something else), they do very well with that genre. With electronic music they will hold their own, but depending on what your taste is like wrt bass, they may or may not satisfy (they aren't designed to rattle your eyes out).

Actually, It is Ok with Pop, however, due to the flash bass, the rs1is are not the best idea for pop. IMO

I just bought 225i and am looking for amp ideas....what did you end up getting to amp your RS1?

i think the rs1i's do ok with pop, especially with flats.

MarkM1, I understand the Schiit Asgard works very well with Grado's. I'm thinking about getting one myself.

I've been comparing the Asgard w/  Little Dot 1+ and even the Fiio 17-just going to start w/ one and take it one step at a time.

 

I'm leangin toward Asgard/ w maybe the Fiio as second purchase which would give me a DAC and portability.

 

This will be my first Head fi HP and first amp....Thoughts???

I've owned my RS1i's for the past year and they have been listening pleasure. I did replace the stock ear cup for the larger ear cup found on the GS-1000 model, as I thought it was more comfortable. This did not negatively effect the sound.

I'm not sure any headphone is intended for any particular type of music. I think the RS1i's do well with anything I throw at it.
