FS: Grado RS1i with Grado mahogany storage box - both items in as-new condition
Will Ship To: US and Canada
Thanks for looking at my ad! For sale we have an as-new pair of Grado RS1i reference headphones with original box, as well as a Grado mahogany storage box included in the sale. Let me give you some background on this pair of RS1i. As an owner of GS1000i headphones with excellent workmanship, my standards for the workmanship on the RS1i were very high. I purchased a brand new pair of RS1i headphones from my local dealer earlier this year. When I got them home, I was totally disappointed in the overall fit and finish. The wood appeared washed out, there was wood-grain runout from the lathe cuts on the back of the cups, etc. I contacted Grado and sent them back. After explaining exactly why I sent them back, they opted to replace them. I spoke with several members of the Brooklyn staff and feel I was able to convey my standards. The pair they sent me - the pair in this ad - exceeded my expectations. They are at least as beautiful as my GS1000i, if not even more finely finished.
The sound has been discussed here at length - amazing. My favorite thing about these 'phones is that they can be driven nicely by *gasp* an iPod. They certainly respond well to high-level amplification but sound great out of anything.
This pair has been on my head less than 20 hours and have been babied when stored. Please take a look at my feedback (especially the feedback archive) and buy with 100% confidence.
Included in this sale is:
Grado extension cable
Grado 1/4" to 1/8" adapter
Grado mahogany storage box
The mahogany storage box was for my GS1000i and has the foam cutout for jumbo pads. I actually find this makes it much more useful as a storage box for the RS1i as it is easier to put them in and take them out. The box is also in as-new condition and the figuring on the mahogany is not capture by the pictures - truly beautiful!
I feel my price of $545 for everything included is extremely fair and will ignore lowball offers. Reasonable offers will be considered. The price includes payment by Paypal (no fees) but does NOT include shipping cost, which will be actual shipping cost based upon your location.
Here's a chance to own an as-new, hand-selected pair of RS1i headphones with all accessories AND the Grado storage box for significantly less than the retail price of the 'phones themselves. Enjoy!
