how would you compare the 325i's to the rs1is?

325s are the diet version of the RS1.

Can anyone tell me, where in the Grado line, does Grado begin using aluminum gimbals?

 

Thanks in advance,

I really don't think these two are a fair comparison. I think they are two totally different headphones. My 325is's are not bright at all like most would say…I feel they are warmer/darker than the RS1i's. I used to say (before I got the RS's), that the 325's where like the 80i's on steroids... but that all changed when I got the RS's. The RS's have the 80i's sound signature on plenty of steroids! Both the 325's/RS's, as well as the 80's are excellent IMO, but I do really love the mid-range, especially vocals on the 325's because of their warm/thick full sound, and possibly because they may be a bit more intimate due too to the slightly smaller sound-stage than the RS's.

So to answer your question, I would think the RS's would be a closer comparison to the 80i's with (L) cushions, but lack the bass/smoothness/quickness/extension/clarity and sound-stage of the RS's.

When I want a warmer sound, I put on my 325's.

In general, the 325is is only a steppingstone toward the RS1i.

From what I can tell (from having extensively auditioned it), it is a refined version of the the SR80i, much more relaxed and not as aggressive as the 325is. In that regard the 325is is often considered the 'odd one out' in the Grado line-up. It gives the you more detail without the 'acoustic refinement' (don't hate at the term) of the RS1i.

 

In general the sound you (I) wanted to hear when you first heard the SR80i.

That's one of the smartest comments I've ever seen on Head-fi.

Can't tell whether that was sarcasm or not...therefore:

 

sarcasm - well, sorry...(just stating impressions as always)

not sarcasm - thanks
