MS-Proi for sale or trade for RS1i

Will Trade For: RS1i
Will Ship To: North America

SOLD

 

I would like to trade my Alessandro MS-Proi for your Grado RS1i, pm me if you're interested. Note that this is the improved version of the MS-Pro, with a thicker cable and improved drivers. If you want more bass or if you find your RS1i too bright, the MS-Pro is the perfect answer. I will also be willing to sell my MS-Pro straight up for $X, buyer is responsible for paypal fees and shipping fees. Comes with just the box and headphones with its original bowl pads

 

< 100 hours usage, full burned in. These have been hardly used and could find a better home.

 

For those who are wondering, these are some of the key points I heard when comparing the MS-Pro vs RS1

MS-Pro

-Not bright, harsh or sibilant (anyone who can't stand the usual grado brightness can definitely tolerate the MS-Pro)

-Very smooth,rich, seducing midrange

-Bass impact is much stronger and lower frequencies are louder. 60Hz to 30Hz is easily heard on the MS-Pro while it is nearly absent on the RS1

-All around genres

-Not the typical grado sound in terms of presentation

-Smooth treble, same detail as RS1

-Full bodied sound

 

RS1

-Bright sounding

-Slightly more forward but much more aggressive midrange ( see point below )

-Audible frequency peaks ( colorization )

-Rolled off low frequencies

-Excels best at rock/metal

-Typical grado bright live sound

-Sounds thin compared to MS-Pro
