I also owned the MS2i and my friend owned the SR325is (purchased at the same time) and we wound up swapping out the drivers because I liked the agressiveness of the 325's more than the bit bass heavier/less forward mids of the MS2's, and vice versa. The only reason we swapped the drivers and just didn't trade headphones was because I liked the MS2i cups (without the buttons) and he liked the 325is cups with the buttons, so I have 325is drivers with, with MS2i cups and I love them. You should really love the 325is from what you say you are looking for. The (G) cushions IMO take away from the fast/aggressiveness/intimacy that make the 325is what it is IMO, but many people do tend too use them, so its all a matter of preference. I've tried the (G's) with the 325's, and didn't care for them at all, but we all hear differently. Good luck and enjoy!!!
awesome man. thanks. and the way i view it that if i don't like the 325is for some reason or they are just like my magnums, i can literally just sell em on hifi and get my money back!
