Mine's a later, more circular one, with a production date of September 1994 or somewhere around there.

Nah, I'd got with the PS500s. As much as I enjoyed the RS1/RS1i, I prefer the PS500s!

whats the difference? 

 

i've heard the PS500s are more neutral and have more bass, which i don't know if thats a good thing or not, i liked the RS1i's forwardness. i was gonna go for PS1000, but i think my T1 would be better, and the PS1000 are very heavy

A bit more bass and treble that won't leave your ears ringing. BTW, I am not a fan of the PS1000s at any price.

so the Grado RS1i or PS500 are really the true flagship of grado as some people say? tongue_smile.gif

 

i haven't heard the PS1000 in a long time, last time i heard it, i really liked it but i only heard reference recordings, not regular music off them. also before that i had only heard mid-fi headphones.

 

what did u find wrong with PS1000? too bright or something?

RS1i is a sexy headphone! I like the way it sounds too, I think I need a pair, but I'd have to get the GCush, I have a love hate thing with Grado, love the sound and hate the lack of comfort!

I'm one of those people for sure.

 

The PS1000s (and GS1000s) are too "U" shaped for my liking and the treble...oh the treble!

lol. 

 

i know the GS1000 is very U-shaped, and has bass problems (resonance, muddy, and no sub-bass) and recessed mids.

i never found the comfort to be an issue with RS1i. with 325is, its another story...they where really uncomfortable and got fatiguing pretty quickly, though i did like them cause they where really detailed headphones that still had a slightly warm midrange (basically a grado version of the beyer T1).

The PS1000 is just about the same and only slightly better sonically (but quite a bit less comfortable).

yes!!! the comfort as well as the ripoff price is the only reason i decided not to go for PS1000. 

 

the GS1000 where extremely comfortable, they are basically weightless and the huge foams are comfy. too bad their sound sucks. the RS1i where pretty comfortable as well when i got them sitting on my ears just right.

They push against my ear wrong with th L Cush and makes the back, harder cartlidge cup shaped part of my ear sore.

Excellent choice of headphones! Looks to me like a well thought-out system. And even better, a Mapletree amp! beerchug.gif
