So the new RS1e puts the driver super close to your ear... it kinda sounds somewhere between the RS1i with L cushions and flats. Now I do like the sound BUT my ear actually is directly up against the cheese cloth driver covering. It doesn't bother me but some might find it annoying. If you want your new pair of RS1e's to fit like the previous RS1e I have a solution!

 

Steal 2 hair ties from your GF/wife/co-worker/friend/stranger and put them around the protruding part of the driver and slide the L cushion over it! SIMPLE! it will keep the exposed edge of the driver off your ear and push the cushion out slightly, now these feel just like the old RS1 with no real effect on sound, except a tiny increase in sound stage.

 

 

 

 

Worth it if the fit of the new model bothers you!

My musical contribution for the day!

So I have the MKIII and LD1+ hooked up and using a Fiio HS2 to switch back and forth with my 225i. So far I hear virtually no difference between the two amps. The LD1+ may have a tiny (no more than 1db) boost in the sub. But I can't say for sure. Going to try with the LCD-2 next to see of the difference is noticeable. With the 225i I can't confidently say one sounds better than the other.

kvtaco, your a freaking Grado modding savant. Question though, do all your best ideas start with larceny?

And, I actually found less difference than I would have thought between the LD1+ and my Asgard-2 of all things w/ my 225i and RS1i. There is a difference, but not as big as I would have imagined. Or, maybe my ears are shot :triportsad:
