post #19276 of 19282

Where does Grado send the models from? I don't think Brooklyn is that far from Long Island. Will the shipping (my shipping) take full 7 days no matter where you are?

A friend of mine used to have the RS1i for around two years and sold them a few months before buying the RS2e, so he never had them both to compare but he said that based on his memory they sound very close to each other. If this be true, buying the RS2e would be a good choice.

All Grados have a similarity to each other.  The differences are subtle but real.

 

2 cents.

I had the old rs1 and rs2 at the same time. That comparison is similar to the gs1ki and ps1k. In that the respective higher model just does more of what the lesser model does. For example the rs1 sounds more balanced compared to the rs2. All frequencies are better represented and not hollowed out.

Up till that point, the rs2 had the best reproduction of guitars that I've heard.

Would the RS2 be less aggressive than the RS1? For metal I found the RS1 to be the best I've heard, but for Japanese pop it felt too bright with the L-cush, and too forward with the S-cush. Thinking of upgrading, but the RS1 is out of my budget!  D:

Although I've never heard them... maybe you would like the PS-500/e

From the posts I've read everyone claims they have nice bass and are not bright in the upper frequencies.

keeping in mind that I have not owned the Rs2 for some time, I certainly do not remember it being less aggressive than the rs1. If you're looking to stay with a Grado can, then maybe a ps500 like Joseph said would be a good choice. Now a days you can find a used pair for under $400 usd.
