LCD-2 do most genre's equally well and some better than others. I particularly like them for vocals, jazz, and some acoustic. When it comes to rock, Grado is still King.

That is nice to know,people appreciate the simple things in life, when it comes to headphones, that is Grado.

Not a great deal, since I don't listen to a whole lot of rock music, but Hendrix is better on them than on my other headphones.

 

 

I still think they should be $600 though :)

I got my pair today from HK_sends.

 

The headphones have the beautiful Mahogany smell,I cannot believe that they smell so fresh.

 

The headphones are more dynamic then my SR 325is.

The highs are nicely tamed, the bass has more definition.

There is definitely more loudness.

 

The headphones look like some work of art, I need a nice woo audio stand for them now.

 

I have heard a few headphones so far, had never heard the RS1i's before,but they definitely surprised me.

iv been having a grado re revalation. with my sr325's  conclusions are thus. shiit where have you been all this time my little candy bones with that slight hug and tactile mesh pressed up agaist your ears joined with that relaxing of ear muscles with   that kline bottle like expansion of the highs leaving and receading into one awareness with that tactile vibration all tegethor now we smile and this is where the grados lay. a grounding into the bodys feelings  music cursess and swirls around your head in a most natural way.   i say re revalation because these things dawned on me before my german foray, t1, pro 900   but comming back to them after thourouly immersing my self in other cans is that  same old grado smile. i feel like the top woodies are not if but when but nahhh ill just wait and see.

Hi, I own a pair of 225i and I've been tempted by the RS1i for some time now. I've never actually heard them and I'm wondering if the upgrade in quality is worth the difference in price. Is it all about the wood chambers? Is there anything else (apart from the leather headband)? Different drivers?

 

Thanks.

Different drivers, wood instead of plastic housing and a more refined version with better sound stage, bass/mids/treble, comfort, detail, etc...

 

I'm sorry you wallet had to hear this.

Thanks for the answer. Do you know what's different about the drivers? Where can I find such information?

For a long time, I was considering buying the 325is. But eventually I figured I'd just wait and save up the difference so I could pick up the RS1is instead. I'm still waiting on payments from clients before I can make the purchase. All these months of waiting are wearing a bit thin for me, though! >:-(

Nope...Grado is pretty hush hush on their technology.
