oh i do , believe me

i'm anxious to get them here at the same time, the rs1i shipped out a couple of days before the gs got here, but i do think i'll find room here for them both, at least for a good while !

each is different enough from the other to warrant having both(at least thats what i'm thinking as of now) lol

LOL and sorry to my wallet in advance

Out of the 80i, 325is, MS2i (used to own), RS1i, and the Bushmills, I find the 80i's and the RS1i's similar to each other with the RS's just having much more of the 80i's sound signature, and much more of a relaxing, enjoyable experience all around.

This is exactley what I'm afraid of! I know I will find the two to have different sounds that I would love about each of them, like I do about all of my Grados, so I won't try them now. You almost had me ordering them last week, then I came to my senses, I think!

I can see in the near future, I will have the GS1K and you will have a Woo!

I really think you would enjoy the WA6 with the Grados. I've listened to all of my Grados with the Woo, and they all shine like I've never heard before.

When you get the RS's back, please let us know about the differences between the two, and if you had to live with one, which one?

Enuff  GS1k talk....I am getting a little ancy here      :D

what i can say with easy confidence, is even with a short time using them i can tell that these are almost exactly what i was hoping they would be.  and they're super comfy thanks to the not-flat pads (these are the bowls, right?), more of an over-ear fit than on-ear.  oh, and they look fantastic!

 

The longer you listen to them, the more you are going to like them and come to appreciate the sound.

 

It took me quite some time to really be able to appreciate just how good of headphone that these are.

My impression of the RS1i is like you took a rough 325i and really really gave it a good polish. Just cleans everything up and makes it clear and bright (not in a bad sense) . You really DO feel like you are listening THROUGH the headphone not TO the headphone, if that makes any sense. Oh yeah and the Woo WA6 is on my very short list for my 'End Game' amp, or maybe an ALO Pan-Am. Nice thing about the ALO is it has a dac built in, but it isn't as shiny as the Woo:)

 The PS500 is still on my radar, along with an LCD and I have to admit, the talk of the new lighter weight HiFiMan HE400i and HE560i have my interest....so I think I will be waiting a few months before I make the final decision

i really like where i'm at can wise, the lcd2, the he-5le, and the gs1000i and rs1i, the one headphone out there i'd like to hear would be the alpha dog, its the only one that i might make a run at , barring any impulses taking hold !

amplification wise , other than wanting to try the woo wa6, all my schiit(vali, lyr, mjo) does a real good job

happy with the wadia, and the ifi idac i'm really pleased overall with my system !  its been a fun year !

Guys, i'd like your opinions please...
 

I have an absolutely raging urge to mod/buy cans at the minute... however as i'm at uni my funds are tight and my mum is watching what I buy like a hawk!
I was thinking I could do things that she couldn't see... got a headband on the way that she won't notice, changed cushions (unnoticed), but now i'm wanting to woody my cans... as a start, could I possibly liberate my drivers, and get some inner shells made, whilst still using the stock 125i outer shells?
Would it be worth it? would it make that much of a difference?

post #11459 of 18633

I've never tried wooden sleeves in the plastic shells, but I expect it would make a difference.

 

LOL...interesting project...a "sleeper" modded Grado. Maintain the appearance as much as possible, but supercharge it under the hood :)...

Meh, if it can get the shells made, i'll give it a go!
If it fails then i'll just get some full cups and i'll take the ear bashing :P

I like the idea!
Like an old Ford Escort Royal Mail van that I saw... it was rusty as hell, but actually had a pristine Ford Escort RS Cosworth Turbo engine under the hood ;)
