post #11281 of 19434

Guys and Gals,

 

Amazon uk have a warehouse deal (ex stock I suppose) on a set of GS1000i for £800. Other decent non grado items there too. £300 too much for my budget sadly.

i have the lyr, vali, i've had the A2, and the little dot 1+,

the vali does pair well with the rs1i, speed, pace , bass has impact

My SR60 is coming up on 10 years! The headband slips out of the plastic block, but otherwise they are still great.

Nice of jaywillin to loan you the RS1I's, and like ArmAndHammer says, be prepared to spend the money on them, I'm sure you will like them, theres nothing to dislike about them, let us know what you think, enjoy!!!

Buy some 1/8" shaft collars from your local hobby shop, problem fixed. Take a look at my profile photos to see them, there great to keep the adjustment right were you want them.

I forgot to indroduce myself as a Grado fan. I have old SR60 (pink driver) and I love it. For now I'm more into modding px100ii driver with wood cups than upgrade to higher model of Grado, thought I wouldn't say no to either PS500 or RS1i (after auditioning them first).

I'm loaning him a set of Hifiman HE-5LE's to try out as well.  We figure this is a good way to save $$$ while trying out different cans.  And if we both love what we hear, who knows...?

If you are referring to the metal band, you can glue it into the rod blocks...problem fixed.

Yeah thats a real nice thing, because it is very hard to audition a lot of headphones out there. The only other way to do this is to buy them and if you don't like them return them, which isn't really cool.

I thought he meant the gimbals were sliding out of the rod block, otherwise hot glue is even better because you can always heat it with a blow dryer if you need to take it off for some reason. And I know how you feel about the shaft collars, LOL!!!
