Great playlist. Just saw Joe Walsh (w/the Eagles) a few weeks back and now see what an awesome writer/singer he is. His stuff is even better live than in recordings. And he sounds great even 30+ years on.

I agree, Joe is a great song writer and I just love him to death.

 

The song "Fun" from the "Got Any Gum" album....so much reminds me of him.

 

I believe I own pretty much every one of his albums.

When ever I teeter on getting another headphone....the PS500 is one that I always consider.

the rs1i , and ps500 are an awesome combo, a great 1-2 punch !

that's what I thought too but then I found I always reached for the RS1. The PS500 are a strange headphone. Not really a Grado and at the same time there are other headphones that do what it does but they do it better. The DT990 is an example.

In my opinion the RS1 and 325 would be the ultimate Grado 1-2 punch...granted I've never heard the GS or PS1000.

I have seen so many very positive reviews of the GS1000i I almost want to get one before the Rs1i, but I am going to resist that urge...I hope.

Having owned the LCD-2 V1 and heard the GS1000 (non i) a lot, the only thing you will miss is the sub-bass of the Audeze.  If you can give that up, you're good to go.  The LCD was just too dark for this GradoHead.:smile:

All of my HP plans are on hold until I get the Oppo BDP-105, which will be my graduation present to myself.  Three more weeks, three more weeks..........

i have the lcd2v2, and if i'm correct, its not supposed to be quite as dark, but in the beginning, thats the problem i had with it, it was just too dark.

but as time has passed, i've gotten more used to it but, still "darker"

 

i keep trying "others" but, my heart belongs to one

Hey guys and gals.

 

I feel like I mention this all the time, but I have some fairly well-respected headphones, as can be seen in my signature.  But time after time, it's the 225is that I have on my ears, followed by the AD, iGrado, then the 5LE's.  My wife has the Sennheisers.

 

The thing is, none of my high-end cans give anywhere near the same visceral, tactile experience that the 225i's give me.  The AD's have some serious sub-bass, but I think it's at the expense of midrange and slam.

 

So my question is this- are there any 'high end' cans outside of Grado that give the same physical experience? With the 225i's, I feel the pluck of the guitar string, and feel the stick hit the drum head.  Not so much the other cans. Does any other brand of HP do this? Maybe the HD800?
