Absolutely. The SM 64 has a lot in common with the RS1.

And that's how you break in a new pair of earmuffs.

Oooh, great suggestions!

Got some Queen playing right now at work. Depending on genre, these can definitely rock like the SR225s. Hendrix coming up next!

Thanks for that, going to looks for a dealer that will allow returns just in case.

Lol!!! I do love the RS1i's, and really don't know if the PS1Ki are for me, but I'll find out. And If I do keep the PS1Ki, I said I would probably sell 2 out of the 3 Grados I own right now…but I didn't say which 2?


You know as well as I do you won't be sellin nuthin

Yeah, I thought about that after I posted it! Lol.

I' up to the last 4 pages of the PS1Ki Appreciation Thread, and I'm not too certain I will like these as much as the RS1i's…but then again, I know better than to judge something from reading about, until I hear it for myself…and if their not for me, thats fine, because then I will know which ones are!

I think I'd like the sound but not so sure about the comfort, Seems like they'd be pretty heavy with those large metal cups. My 325's are heavy but those would be quite a bit worse.

I'm not really worried about the weight of the cups, being that I find my 325's too be very comfortable, as a matter of fact I find them just as comfortable as my wooden Grados even though they are heavier. I'm really just concerned mostly about the mid-range being lively/upfront enough for me and not recessed or V shaped. The mid-range is what makes me love the Grado sound, and if these deviate from the Grado sound, I'm not going to like them, like I didn't like the GS1Ki's, but I'll soon find out. Right now as I post I'm listening to the RS1i's, and I must say I'm just in heaven with the RS/WA6 combo, and I'm questioning myself as to why did I bother, but I'm just so curious too as can it get better than the RS1i's for me? But I explained to the rep that I was trying them with intensions of returning them if I didn't feel they were for my taste, also letting him know they had too impress me more than my RS1's and he had no problem with my honesty and totally understood. I got them with free shipping/no tax and 60 day refund no questions asked from Sonic Eletronix in CA. So I'll keep these much longer than the GS's, which I knew I didn't care for almost immediately because of the mid-range…the PS1Ki's mid-range isn't supposed too be as recessed (hopefully).
