I know very little about tech specs, sorry. Do any of the setups i am considering have that feature?

the output impedance of the lyr is less than 1 ohm, and sounds wonderful

We all have different takes on amps & dacs but love our RS1's. I believe that is because they are so good with all decent equipment.. I love mine with my Woo WA7 amp/dac which I think is a screaming bargain for $1000, but they are great with my Bellari tube amp also. And very nice with the ibasso solid state D6 too by the way. Have fun and enjoy 'em!

I had the MODI/MAGNI combo with the 325is and i liked it a lot, except on bad recording (some Metallica, Chilli Peppers). Man, the 325's are very unforgiving!!!

The ps1000 is even worse. Unlistenable even on decent recordings. Very sibilant and grainy and shrill.

The rs1i does not do any of that biggrin.gif

I won an auction for these headphones on eBay last week. My winning bid was £270 which is insanely cheap considering they cost in excess of £900 in the UK. The seller asked if he could relist, I said no. He went missing for four days so I sent him some messages and he replied saying they'd been mailed and provided me with a tracking number. It turned out to be fake and the next day he issued me a refund. Seriously, if I could spend five minutes alone with the arsehole. Was really looking forward to hearing the RS1. Hadn't really considered them before but am on the lookout for a cheap pair now that my appetite has been whetted. I know they'll not be as good as my Fostex TH-600 but they'd make a good complimentary headphone for acoustic stuff etc.

man, they are so light ! very comfortable

but i guess when my other two headphones are metal, it makes sense that the wood cups would be a lot lighter

I was shocked how light they were when I first picked them up, even in comparison to the SR60s.

Yes they are light, Prior to getting the RS1's I put the Vibro Labs (classic) wooden cups on my 80's, so I'm used to the light weight. OTOH I find my 325is's super comfortable regardless of their weight.

Do you know approximately how many hours where on your RS1's prior to buying them?

I only ask because I found mine to be a bit shrill at first, but now after about 15-20hrs the shrillness is going away, the bass has tightened and the mids are smoother. In one of your posts you mentioned the RS1 has none of this, this is why I'm asking, because mine seem to be burning-in very nicely.
