Yeah that got ordered.....I'm a sucker.  Was just going to get a generic pelican case for storage, but this popped up.

The Grado FB page mentioned a special surprise for those who bought...wonder what it will be?

I just e-mailed Grado and asked them if I could purchase one from them for much less, being that I just purchased the RS1i's. I figured I would give it a shot because the RS1's used to come with the wooden box. I can't see giving them $100.00 for a wooden box that used to be standard.

I agree, I was scared to death that the way everybody described the 325i, It would be way to bright for me......man, what a great headphone, I loved mine.....to me they were also just detailed and not bright.

 

They were also the one can that I have had that just kept sounding beter and better, even after hundreds and hundreds of hours listening.

Great idea, Joseph.

 

I like the box, it looks cool, but mine is living on a nice headphone stand, and I like them being ready to go , as I use them pretty much everyday.

 

I love the box, but don't want to have to dig them out of the box to use them all the time.

I owned a 325i which is supposedly even brighter than the current 325is model. I never found it too bright unless I had the volume up to a very uncomfortable level. if I ever get another SR series headphone I'd go with the 325...or 225 smily_headphones1.gif

Given their high price, I think that PS1000 owners should get the wooden box free, and a bag of chips.

post #10483 of 18577

Just make sure you get the right one, there is a "standard" and a 1k (for the GS1000 and PS1000) and I would assume if you have G-Cush on any of the other models you would need the 1k version for them to fit.
