I think the wooden boxes were sold separately a while back - you could buy them with a foam inset to hold either the Prestige/RS series or the GS1000/PS1000 models.

 Looks like the RS1 wood box may be making a comeback

 

If so I wonder whether they would consider sending boxes to those of us who bought the RS1i recently... :D

Grado recently posted these on their FB site.

1995 RS3 prototypes that never went into production.

Looks like the same small body size as the original plastic SR100/200/300/60/80/125/225.

Hello,
I am happy owner of 325is's and to my ears they are not bright as most people are saying about them. Not burnt at all yet, but I will let them to be soon. One question I have. Is it worth to think over the cable change? Does it bring a lot of benefit to change it at all?

The new large cable with the 325is is very adequate unless you don't like the size and weight there is no real reason to change the cable.

It is the same cable that comes with the most expensive Grados.

OK, seems no need to do it. It is easy to make it twisted time to time, bu I guess that is like that in all Grado cans?

You can try to modify the rod blocks to stop them twisting.

If you don't want to drill & screw, use shaft coller locks, but these don't stop the twisting (although with the rubber sleeves it might:

I use zip ties to stop the slipping. If you leave the end long enough it will also stop the cups from twisting around by hitting the headband:

Thanks a lot. Other way may be also storing the cans on the nIce wooden stands all the time IMHO.

I was thinking the same thing being that I recently purchased the RS!i's myself, but I think its just wishful thinking, and I wouldn't  spend $75.00 on a box for them.

Congratulations on the 325's, enjoy them, the more hours you put on them, the better they sound.

I agree, they are not bright like most people tend to say (at least mine aren't), and I have plenty of hours on mine. They are a great sounding headphone. As far as the recabling, I find nothing wrong with the stack cable. Although I've never heard the 325's with a modded cable, I still wouldn't change it, thats just my opinion.

Pleeeeease, go to your local hobby store and buy 1/8 chrome shaft collars, and O-rings to place between the rod blocks and the collars!!! LOL!!!

par baked, by the way you may be able to buy longer set screws to use so the cups won't spin. Also where did you get those rod tips? I like the way they look!

post #10467 of 19357

+1 on the 325is. Not at all harsh with good source material. If you ever get a chance to listen to a good sacd recording over the 325is, you will be in audio heaven.

post #10468 of 19357

I prefer to think of the 325 as 'detailed' and not harsh...

Exactly, I think that generally Grado's do not like bad recordings. In case of 325is's i did the comparison with 80i and 225i and to me 325is sound more refined than 225i with less forward bass - more natural. The sound and the soundstage are much, much bigger comparing to 80i's.
post #10470 of 19357
Agree totally regarding 325. Good source, recording and amp and they shine. Don't do much straight out of PMPs. Mine never harsh if in the right set up andin which case, I much prefer them with the G cush to L cush.
