several reasons,

first and foremost, temporary insanity(more than my usual level of insanity) it was a total impulse buy

other than that, its basically not the direction i wanted to go,

so that being said, its going up for sale today, if anyone has any interest, pm me for the grado lovers deal ! will include a special gift not available to the general public !

Beautiful looking Mad Ear on the B/S/T forums

 

Would make someone with Grado's a fantastic amp.

My RS2i's arrived yesterday. Didn't have much time to listen yesterday but giving them a good listen tonight. So far not hearing a huge improvement over my 325is phones but I don't think these are really broken-in yet. I am going to give them a few days and see how I feel then. I like the sound but the soundstage and imaging seems lacking at the moment.

same. I just received a pair of 325i's last week, and instead of auditioning the crap out of them over my spring break, I left them at home. Thinking that my v-moda and fiio e11 pairing would satisfy my listening needs this week. I've been kicking myself since Sunday.

Yup, give them some time.. with the RS1i and PS500 I found that they started opening up at about 30-40 hours and settled at about 80-100.  I kept mine running 7x24 for about a week.  It's a PIA breaking stuff in and adjusting to their sound but well worth it.

So I keep hearing about basshead mods.

 

I really like my M100s but think open-back phones have a charm as well, my only problem with Grado is that there seems to be a cataclysmic drop-off in the bass. I was enjoying the beginning of a metal track on the PS500 immensely, but when the bass landed it... well, it didn't. I could hear the tone, but it was hollow and thin. Are there mods that will fix this? I feel like everything above 80Hz or so was amazing but it had nothing going on under that.

No way you're going to get the Grado's to have bass like the M100.  They have good bass but don't go down very deep and fall off pretty fast in the sub-bass area. I was actually surprised how punchy the RS1i is with the Woo WA6, almost too much for me. I ended up selling the M100 for that reason. You might like the Audeze LCD2.

I'm not asking for M100 level bass, just wondering if there's a mod that fills it out better. Looking at the charts (and going off my own ears) it feels like the bass in the Grados just drops off a cliff. Fix that and they'd be golden.
 
Wasn't really impressed with the LCD2s, especially for over $1000, haha.

VMODA Verza amp, yes. Curious about the tape/pad mod, might look into that. 

post #12930 of 18143

Hey guys,

 

Does anyone happen to have a frequency response chart comparing the the PS500 and the RS1i (and perhaps the RS2i)? I've tried searching but couldn't come up with anything.

 

Thanks!
