I got a pair of Rs2i coming. I hope the reviews saying they were very close to the Rs1i were true. I was looking at the headphone shootout thread and amazing (to me at least) the Rs2i scored highest in value over all the Grado's.

Would be great to hear some impressions later

 

Nobody seems to be interested in those (or nobody talks about them).

Sometimes it feels that the Grado line-up only consists of the

 

  • SR80i  - legendary (or 'my 1st pair of headphones')
  • SR225i -  bang for buck
  • SR325is - too bright / terrible 
  • RS1i -  awesome 
  • GS1000i - expensive but great

...just an impression...

The SR60i gets lots of love. the SR125i and RS2i seem to be the ugly ducklings at least for the head-fi crowd. I'm sure Grado must be selling enough of them to keep them in production. the PS1000 is just out of most people's reach.

But to be honest, the PS1000 really look very cheap for what they are worth. (not commenting on SQ, never heard them)

Speaking of Ugly Ducklings, I notice the PS500 does not seem to get too much attention.  I have been thinking about getting a set of Grados and build quality, as well as sound quality are important to me.  The two sets I'm considering are the PS500 and the RS1.i.  There is a $100 price difference between the two, with the PS500 being less expensive.  I cannot audition any Grados so, any advice would be appreciated.

I usually read that people who actually don't like Grados (= Devils devil_face.gif), quite like the PS500, because they are more laid-back than all the others.

 

So I would say that people who like Grados (and look for that sound) would rather go for the RS1i. (haven't heard the PS500)

i've had the ps500, and i have the rs1i, different sounding cans, but both awesome, the 500, more bass, warmer, not your typical grado sound per se

the rs1i, some say its the best all round grado, detail, texture, fast,

i think it comes down to what sound you like

 

build quality , to me they are about the same, the 500 is heavier, but not heavy, i think most would agree, most folks don't buy grados because

they appear "high end" i've never had an issue with quality though, and i've bought all mine used

I wouldn't really call the PS500 laid back. It's still in your face, but it definitely seems to be tuned to be more of what "the young kids" want.... bass and treble (though not quite as peaky as some other 'bright' Grados). They are certainly very fun headphones.

The PS500 really reminded me of the Senn HD650 without the soundstage.  Personally, I found them dark.
