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 !

 Alpha Dogs just came up for sale on the Recent Discussions!

i'll do my reading, not to worry...but anyone have a quick favorite pad choice to use with the RS1i?  right now i really like the comfort and sound of the small bowls that came with, and i did not like the change in sound very much when i used the small flats from the SR80

 

what about the huge bowls, any luck there?  or quarter-modded something something?  is it right to tape the bowls on these cans (i will anyways of course just to try)

 

thanks

 

ps. these are just amazing.  i can't get enough listening time, they're just so good...never heard such a smooth sound (whatever that even means).  and the biggest surprise....while not my first choice by any stretch, they actually aren't bad with hip hop or electronic music thanks to the more extended and well textured bass

You should try the TTVJ Flat pads which is what the RS1 came with way back when...

Interestingly enough the G-Cush pads are nearly the only pads I use with my Rs1. I'll switch to one of the others occasionally if I'm looking for a change of pace, but I prefer the G's by an enormous margin.

Are the g's the giant bowls? Those seem interesting from a fit point of view...

Yeah, they're the large pads.

 

Not only are they a lot more comfortable for me, they take just enough of the edge off of the treble, and they give the music a lot more of a layered sound to me. The soundstage probably doubles as well.

the g's are very comfortable , but with the rs1's, i lose the sense of intimacy with the music, i feel disconnected , but hey, different strokes !

Same issue I had when I tried the (G's) with my 325is's, lost all the intamacy.

I'm slightly treble sensitive and more into having a mid-forward presentation, I think that's probably why I like the G's better. In all honesty, I'd probably do better with a completely different headphone manufacturer, but the RS1 is just such a great complement to mix up the "smooth" sound that I usually listen to. Needless to say, I don't think they'll ever be leaving my stable.

 

I love that they do what they do well, and I love that a change of pads can turn tone them anywhere from an energy powerhouse to an eurphonic, light, detailed sound.

On a side note, for me I feel like I almost have a more intimate sound while using the G-Cush to give them a little more space. It's almost as if to me, the smaller pads cluster everything together a little bit and make it too incoherent for me to get lost in the sound. I do enjoy the occasional change of pace though.

 

I'm probably just weird. :wink_face:

No not weird, I agree the (G's) give a wider soundstage and space between the the music.

I no longer own the (G's) to try them on my RS1i's, but I am happy with the intimacy/focus and the soundstage with the (L's) on the RS's. I realized a while ago (after trying the (G's) on my 325is's), that I'm not such a fan of a huge soundstage, but I do like the soundstage of the RS's, its just right to still be focused/intimate for me.

I think the thing for me is that I prefer intimacy coupled with a smooth, dark signature. When I'm looking for something bright and energetic I prefer a more open approach. Regardless, I'd be happy with the RS1 with any pads.

I'm gonna try the G anyways cause why not

I don't like the small sr80 flats on the rs1 and I don't like the L bowls on the sr80...but all the different signatures take time to get used to and I will probably just start collecting all the different pads just for fun and spending proper time with each combo. I definitely like the comfort of the L bowls, the flats on the 80's squish my earrings LOL and after an hour it's itchy as heck. It seems to me the G bowls would be completely around the ear....?
