oh i already bought them, used , from a head fi'er, i got them before he ever put an add up !
the HE-5LE's i haven't bought, they are the one's i got in a swap from swspiers, he's got my rs1i's.
i do like the gs's, i'm very happy with them
Oh, I didn't realize, I thought you swapped for these also.
When you get the RS's back are you going to sell one off, or keep both the GS and RS?
that's the $64,000 question ! lol
it all depends on what happens with the HE-5LE and the rs1i, it looks like i'm liking the 5LE more than swspiers is liking the rs1i
i wouldn't think i'd keep both the rs1, and gs1000, just kinda up in the air now
well thanks to head-fi i found a great set of RS1i at a great price (thanks dgcrane), they should arrive here in 3-4 days so i'm pretty excited. i hope they are what i want, meaning a more refined SR80
even if i love the RS1 i won't sell my 80's, those will probably follow me around forever. probably no more grado upgrade path for me unless i can't stand the RS1 and then i'll try one of the other ones, but next on my upgrade list is a tube amp and some LCD-X...probably in 2 years when i can justify that $$$
Congrats, you are going to be a very happy man
Well guys I attended the Seattle Head-Fi meet and finally got to hear some RS1i's after all this time. Here is what I think, and this should probably come as no surprise to any of you, I need to sell both of the Grados I have now (325i and 225i) and buy an RS1i. It does everything both of those phones do and does it better. It wasn't my favorite phone from the meet, but I know that there will be times no matter what, when I am going to be needing a Grado fix and for those times, I am going to have to have 1 with me so why not consolidate everything that is Grado, into one phone. So my advice to anybody who is really really sure they like the Grado sound and comfort (which has never been an issue for me) is avoid all the upgrading and just get an Rs1i and be done with it. If anyone is interested in my impressions of the other phones I heard there I'd be happy to post, but as this is the Grado topic I thought I'd keep it restricted to just Grado. For what it is worth, nobody brought any other Grados, I was hoping to hear some PS500 or 1000, maybe even a GS1000i but none of that happened. Maybe next time.
Sounds like a great plan, I eventually got rid of my 325i also, after getting my RS1i....I kept it for awhile, but it never got any head time, so I finally sold it and stashed the money for a future amp purchase.
As of right now, it is very hard for me to unplug my RS1i from my MAD EAR and plug in another headphone.
