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...

From recollection RS1i has bigger upper mids bump which is more noticable on most recordings than the higher highs extension it also has. In this sense you may consider RS1i brighter albeit by a small margin.

The perfect "pick me up" at work, SR80i's for the win!

I was very interested in hearing the HD-800…so I ordered them and I received them today, and took the WA6-SE off the F/S Forum, and eBay. I'm currently listening to them with the 6SE/596/6EW7 tubes. I know this is the Grado thread, but I know some here have these headphones also. How long would you say burn-in for these headphone might be?

Thanks.

how about some Vulfpek...

You're right Joseph, THI IS the Grado thread so go ask your stupid question about your P.O.S HD800 in the trader's, sorry, Sennheiser's thread!.

 

I'm just messing with you Buddy, personally as long as people who own other brands of headphones don't come to the ''Dark Side'' to piss on Grados, I have no problem answerring any question that they might have. That being said, I'm pretty sure that you have a much better chance of getting an answer to your question if you post it in the snob, sorry, Senns thread, kidding of course, or am I?, seriously though, I wouldn't mention that you're heart lies with of the Dark Side!.

 

This might be a good time to say that, thanks to the Montréal Hi-Fi show, I have had the opportunity to listen to many headphones, HD700/800, LCD2/3, K701, HE500/6, T1, 007/009, just to name many, and the only reason why I choose to own Grados only, is that I think that the headphones stated above, ALL, without exeption, sound very good, wich means that I would probably want to own most of them. Now, I don't have to tell you how expensive a proposition that would be, especially when you consider that, unlike Grados, wich can sound good even if they're hooked up to a Java finch's arse, some, like the Stax 009, need very high quality, cough!, expensive, cough! amplifiers. so I would be bankrupt in no time.

 

Before critisizing this post, in whole, or in part, be informed that due to a very severe Chron's desiese flareup, I am currently taking very strong pain medication, wich can alter my better jugement, this gives me an excuse, that I will not hesitate to use to justify my post content.
