Yeah, I would have to think $595.00 headphones come with (L) cushions.

They do. All the pics from Grado show them with L cush.

Grados site shows the PS 500 with the (L) cushions…although I don't know when the PS 500 came out, so maybe if yours are an earlier model they came with the (S) cushions at that time. I know the earlier 80's used to come with the (L) cushions…but not anymore.

i can only listen to them with comfies

Why is this, because of the comfort?

I actually had a large chunk of free time this evening and got to spend several hours just listening to my RS2i's Doesn't happen very often but it sure is enjoyable when it does. Still noticing a bit of shrillness on certain tracks, same as I had with the 325is so I am hoping it is just because they need more burn-in. The 325is finally settled in and have the smoothest treble I have ever heard. I am hoping these will too.

I totally agree, I never had an issue with the treble with my 325is's, it is very smooth!

Fooey, local hi-fi shop is closed Monday and Tuesday, now I have to wait until Thursday before I can go and audition some of the higher-end Grados :(

I really want to listen to the RS1i, RS2i, and PS500, we'll see which of those they actually have in the shop.

Nice! I've never heard the RS2i/PS500, but I can say the RS1i is awesome for me.

Good luck with which ever suite your tastes best.

I auditioned all three, owned the PS500 for 30 days and then returned them for the RS1i.  Been thrilled ever since.  Take your time when auditioning and bring your own music and amp if you can.  No matter what you get, you can't go wrong :)  Good Luck and let us know what you decide on.

I intend to, the Schiit Modi + Vali won't be too hard to just throw in my backpack. I'm just trying to find a day where I can actually spend a fair deal of time in the shop. Unfortunately with school, my options are pretty limited.

You should try the 325is too while you are at it unless you already heard it. Problem with auditioning Grado's is they take so long to burn-in and change so much as they do so, it is real hard to get a good "read" on them. I listened to some PS500's a couple months ago in a shop and I HATED them, but some people love them. I have to believe at least part of the problem was they were not burned-in.

I receive the Audio Adviser magazine today, and I see some nice discounts on the Pangea Power Cord AC-14XL (24"/$125.00 U.S.), which I would like to try for my DAC…anyone have any advice on this, or something different? I'm not looking to break the bank, and feel this is a reasonable price, so please don't suggest a $500.00 U.S. power cord, thanks.
