You'll thank your wallet later.. They are phenomenally good. It's like they had my ears in mind.

Have you guys ever listened to akg k44s? They are only 19 bucks right now... I highly recommend you locate them in the store, scope them out, and walk in the opposite direction as fast as you can. See a therapist after to erase the thought of ever seeing them.

Just saying.

Thank you for the compliment. A padded headband might be the next mod. Then I'm done!

I am thinking of getting some kind of headband cushion for my SR325is phones. Now that I am listening to them more the added weight on my head is starting to bother me a bit. The 225i and RS2i are light enough they don't bother me in the same way. I can imagine the PS1000 would be the same as the 325 as far as weight is concerned.

I was wondering, and maybe some of you could enlighten me. The PS1000 is Grado's most expensive (by a wide margin) headphone and therefore one would think their best phone. But I can't remember the last time anybody posted anything about it here. Is it just too expensive, no body buys em or is it just not that good? I saw a review of a dac a while back and the person tried using the PS1000 to evaluate it and said it was so colored he couldn't do it. Is it really that bad?

All i've read about it were raving reviews, and I thought they sounded great but they were way out of my budget back then (still are). They're the only Grados I still want to own (other than my 325i of course).

just did comparison between my ps500 and hd800. some might say is unfair, bcoz i was using portable to drive my hd800 (but IMO is good enough actually). Result is i do prefer the sound out of my ps500. Not technically. I felt hd800 can perform better in some aspects. More depth, more spacious, felt like more room in my head. But i just love the way Grado present the MIDS. I guess am addicted already...overall sound i enjoy more with Grado, to me is more engaging than hd800 (based on my setup). I know, hd800 could be better with more bigger OR expensive setup, but instead of upgrading my system for hd800, i started to think that i might be selling my full size cans + my current desktop (which i seldom use) to fund a higher-end portable (maybe ak240/hugo chord) for my Grado. At the end, i do not need a bigger setup for my Grado, portable is good enough to drive them (one big reason i love it). :biggrin:

They're definitely great headphones, but i wouldn't have bought them at full price.
My RS-1 + RA-1 give a different sound but about equal sound quality, or so i'd like to think.

If you can get the PS1000 for €1500 or less, it's IMO worth it.

Would be nice if grado would think about using other rodblocks on them, the cups tend to shift.
and maybe another headband(i have a first version PS1000, so it could be better now)

just gonna chip in a quick comment on the DARK side of the Senn HD thing-

I listened to the HD line from 800 down.

When I hit the 600, it all fell into place for me.

I think the 600 is that sweet spot, re' bass, with super clarity in the mids and highs.

I listen tio MUCHO classical and love live acoustic music.... and the HD 600 presents them all VERY VERY well.

You can hear, without harshness, the vocalists breathe.

 

I think, if one is looking for a very nice choice in adding the HD ss to the stable, the 600 is worthy of a listen.

 

I'm listening to my RS1's right now, got some Brahms on, WA6 as my amp.... this is heaven, when the right cup of coffee is involved.:wink:
