My RS1i were not muddy in any way....quite the opposite, the mids were quite impressive

+1, definitely sounds like something is wrong there.

Agreed. As i mentioned before, even though i misread the original comment, i actually needed a warmer source to get it less "piercing". It's worth getting them checked/fixed/replaced.

Correct, I've never heard anybody use the term "muddy" for the RS1x…if anything it would be the total opposite "piercing" like you mentioned (although never IME). I also use a tube amp for the RS1i's, which is pure musical bliss to my ears.

I managed to get the RA-1 and PH-1 for cheap, and i use those at the moment. eventually want to upgrade to Woo Audio WA-5 or WA-6se. Really putting this on hold a lot though, as i'll pay another 23% on top of the regular price+shipping of those.

Congratulations on the amps!

As you may have read, I originally had the WA6 then sold it when I got the 6-SE...then sold the 6-SE (2 weeks ago) to get the WA6 ( which I've had for a couple of months now) again due to the fact of the 6-SE not accepting the 6SN7 tubes which I love with the RS1i's.

btw, I also liked the Bushmills and thought they were like a slightly baser RS1 but I thought they really needed the L cush pads or they sounded muddy. the comfy pads hide a lot of the abilities of the Bushmills. just an FYI in case anyone can still find these.

Anyone have any updates on whether Grado will be producing more Bushmills?

Every once in awhile a pair will surface in the b/s/t forum

Just might be the GRADO GOD'S!!! :veryevil:

Good luck with fixing the issues with your set-up, so you can get back to the music! :wink:


Yep... 31 headphones.

 

To aid head-fi-ers in increasing their own headphone count, I posted the following post on "26 Battle-Tested Excuses for Why You Need New Headphones."  Feel free to use them!

But I fear my budget constraints dictate that I must wait about 6 months before buying another pair of headphones.  When I do, at least at the moment, they will be Grado PS1000e's. (Unless I find a great chance for an SR225 or 225i or 225e... that will add a few more weeks of waiting!!!).

I feel pretty bad that I'm not respecting the RS1e's. They went back tonight for a credit. I LOVE my 325e's but something was very wrong with the RS1's. I've been following the e series loaner thread and I'll be interested to see if this was an isolated incident. I'm looking for somewhere to go to do another listen. I may return to the Rs1 if I can be sure they sound like I think they should. Based on some early reviews of the RS1e's there might be a little problem. We'll see.
