Have your say! All for fun and I'm really quite anticipating your vote.

 

Edit: I'm extremely sorry for not adding the HF-2 into the equation, I never heard of them at the time.

Well, I'm going to guess that the more expensive they are the better they'll sound.... especially considering how they're made by the same company.

As I agree with you on the most widely thought out concept of higher price is better, there are several instances where a headphone have been worse than its previous family.

 

HD650 for great example. Many say it was below HD600.

 

Same with RS-1 to RS-2.

This poll can't work.   :-)

 

You should ask for people to vote who have only heard a majority of these themselves.  No vote from people who "guess".  :-D

 

I personally have either A/B'ed or owned, the 60i up through the 325is, and then both the MS1i and MS2i.

 

I really like both the 225i and the MS2i, but I voted for the MS2i.  But I think the 225 is the better value.

 

And ... you should have had the HF1 and HF2 as choices.

PS1000

RS1 is not the predecessor of RS2 but the higher model of the same product line.

Vote MS Pro, but I never heard RS1i and PS1000, so I think my voting will not really valid.

I think he was referring to the sound. Quite a few people prefer the sound of the RS2 to the RS1, just like the HD600 VS the HD650.

Voting lists will always be unsuitable for the general public.

 

Maybe I should have said, "Best "Available" Grado Headphone". And I'm sorry for not putting up the gs1000 or ps1000, its the idea that those are the obvious best so why list them?

post #11 of 56

HF2

Grado SR60

That makes sense!

post #14 of 56

unless we've all tried them all, unfortunately this has no basis and is merely a popularity contest.

post #15 of 56

There are quite a few missing candidates even if you want to make it into "The best of currently available Grados" contest.

Anyways, I can't vote since I have not heard most of the headphones on this list. :-(
