cush down means they would be lying down flat on the pads like in the picture. if you do that for a long time, the pads will flatten due to the weight of the headphone.

Ahh. Never off the head that long :-)

I listen to Classical and Jazz. These Grado RS1i are doing a great job. (Granted, I don't have a lot of experience with "audiophile" headphones)

 

I'm thinking of getting a "closed" pair as well, just so I have a little variety. Not sure what manufacturer I will try.

 

 

Here they are with my Schiit Valhalla and Schiit Bifrost. I bought the stand from a guy on Etsy

I like the BeyerDynamic DT-660.  Even more efficient than the Grados with Grado like sound and good isolation.

Now... back on the hunt :P

Good to hear this, when you use eBay/PayPal you are always protected against unfortunate thing like this. Good luck in your search!

Congratulations, I'm sure you will enjoy them, they are really nice sounding headphones, IMO.

I leave all my Grados face down all of the time, rather than scratching/marking the cups.

I purchased some inexpensive cases from ebay and store my grados in those. I usually pull the pads off when I put them in the case to avoid squishing them.

I'm pretty sure the RS1i qualifies as "audiophile"! They are almost as good as it gets, imo. Love them for a wide variety of music.

That's what I meant. These are the first high-end cans I've owned, so I don't have a lot to compare them too. You really have to take a chance on your first purchase; I read a lot of reviews, and auditioned them. And of course, the fact that I'm from Brooklyn was a plus. It's like going back home whenever I put them on.

I always store my gloryfied dumbells (PS1000), cush down when I'm not using them, the cups are much too heavy for those plastic blocks.

 

I read many comments regarding the way the Bushmills sound, and it's understandable since it is the most important thing, but I think that they're also very comfortable. They're very light, they have to be within a gram or two, of the RS1i's weight. I have smallish hears, so the L-cush don't bother me.

 

I might be repeating myself, but I think that the Bushmills have a lot going for them. They sound great, they look good, they're vert light, and comfortable, they also have the nicest presentation of any Grados, they're relatively affordable, and last, but certainly not least, they'll more than likely appreciate with time.

I'd agree with that. Even though I just sold mine, they are excellent headphones and probably the best I've owned to date. I do have a pair of RS1i's on the mail coming to me so I'm hoping that they impress me more than the Bushmills. Even if they are par for the course, I made some extra money after selling the Bushmills and buying the RS1 so I still did ok.
