$300 RS-1 - is this a steal?

post #1 of 80
Thread Starter 
EDIT: I BOUGHT THEM!! PICS ON PAGE 5 - i paid $315something with tax! they are absolutely beautiful - looks and sounds!


Here is the story. I woke up this morning and was distraught because i put on my SR-125s and, to my displeasure, i found that they were completely out in the right ear - no sound whatsoever.
I called the place i bought them in fall and they told me to send them to Grado and Grado will fix them for free because they are still under warranty.

So i'm doing that.

However I told the guy i had been thinking of upgrading to the 225 and he told me he actually has a used pair of RS-1s that he'd sell to me for $300. He said they were in perfect condition, they were just used with no more warranty and that i could come in at anytime and give them a listen.

Whatcha think?

That's a very good deal, the lowest i've seen some rs-1 go is for $400 a few times on these forums (buttonless)

Fantastic deal!

If this retailer is trustworthy, you should jump on it

That is a steal and I now hate you

If it's a legit offer and the headphones are indeed "perfect", then that is a phenomenally good price for a pair of RS-1s. Even if they have some cosmetic issues I'd jump all over it in a heartbeat.

BTW, imagine if this RS1 happens to be a vintage model or something.

here is the catch - i can't buy them right now - i don't have that much money in my spending account. however over the next couple weeks i hope to get $300 to spend ASAP and i will buy them.

I'll buy 'em for you... and get them to you when I tire of them!

AWESOME DEAL. Call your parents. Call your friends. Get those funds together!
