nobody was kicking here. so please don't lie. that's unlovely.
i will get grado. i'm out. be happy with your involving 880...
Every man is entitled to his opinion. From everything you write it seems you want a grado.
I have SR325is and a DT880. If the T1 is a "supersized" 880 and the RS-1 is a "supersized" 325 they should compliment each other AND be good with metal. Also, from what i read is that a RS-1 isn't up there in overall quality.
I'd say, get a 225 or a 325 and see if you really do like the grado sound.
Involving is subject to taste. I find the DT880 involving. Its the soundstage and the clarity that does it, not the mids like the grado's.
Everyone is trying to help and you start kicking them in the jewels because they tell their thoughts, which dont seem to line up with yours.
