Have not heard the 2i. The 1i is quite good with well-recorded tracks. Can be bright if you play too loudly or use poorly recorded tracks. Just my experience. Grados are superb at reasonable, even low, volumes. 

 

Since you have a predilection for woodies, how about the GS1Ki? I've had these for 2 yrs, and like them very much, more so than RS1i. Wider soundstage, more textured bass. Keep in mind that warmth is not a hallmark of Grado. But.....

 

.....the Senn HD650 is very relaxed and warm, and for me, it's great for brass, opera, and symphonic music. Shhh....

 

signing off for the night.

So glad to see that your doing what you can and that you still care enough to tease us with your GS1Ke's. I saw that you had posted and it gave me a smile. Keep rockin' brother!

I can only comment on the rs2 vs rs1 (non "i" version)

The rs-2 is less bright, but the RS-1 with the ra-1 amp, makes it a bit more bassy as well.

Or you could get an RS-1/RS-2 and "mod" it by opening some of the holes on the back of the driver...
