Again, for me the G1000e is the pick of the litter, the Grado heritage in a box. (I even still keep my GS1000i, even though the e is an improvement, smoother and some nice trace of silk in vocals, but still a great phone that I cannot bring myself to part with.)

I haven't tried the Gs1ke, but I believe you when you say that they are great cans! Still rocking my Gs1ki!

 

on another note, and the reason why I believe you when you say that the Gs1ke is an improvement over the older gen GS, is that I just got myself my first "e" series grado. Ladies and Gents, say hello to my little friend!:tongue:

well sir. I think they're quite nice!:tongue:

 

 

they remind me of the Gs1ki. Very sensitive drivers, very easy to drive. Also, these sound more transparent than what I remember out of anything below the Gs1k range sounds like, from all the previous/older Grados I've listened to.  

 

To be honest, I just bought them to try them out and was gonna sell them, but I think that might come back to bite me in the ass, as it's hard getting rid of any Grados cause I like them all!   ...well, now that I think about it, there is one Grado I could not stand and that was the Rs1i! man, that thing was painful!!!

my favorite would be the Rs1 with buttons. the rs1i had a spike that made it really unpleasant for me. I believe @stacker45 also had this problem with the Rs1i IIRC.

 

btw @kayandjohn, I love your avatar! ha! funny stuff! :biggrin:

I have the RS1 with buttons, as well as the RS1i.  I love them both but I prefer the sound of the RS1i, especially for times when I am closing my eyes and critically listening to the music.

 

Oh, and when I reach that Nirvana of Enlightenment known here as Headphonius Supremus, I pray that folks will finally listen to what I have to say, and manufacturers will send me free headphones in the mail (fat chance of either, I know!)

It's fascinating how many people have their own favorite Grado, and how many different models are picked as favorites.

With Audeze, say, it seems like the X and 3F are agreed-upon as best choices, but with Grado I think a dozen or more are named.

Grado is a bit like Stax in this respect, the sheer number of models creates a wonderfully diverse community. Lots of different sound signatures for lots of different tastes in music.

New Grado member checking in. I'm in Europe for some time and I thought I might pick up a headphone. Went around a few shops trying out headphones, put on the AKG K702 and with the kind of music that I listen to ( Metal, Blues, Classic Rock), I wasn't too impressed with them. The music was too tamed and too far apart for my liking (loyal to my Panasonic HJE900 for 7 years now). Next up was the HD 600 and I kinda liked it. Said to the salesman, order me one of the 600s. On m way home, musing over my the butt load of money that I just spent, I came across a run down audio store, I decided to take a tour of it and voila they had Grados for demo. I checked out the SR80i and SR125i on his sweet setup. I guess I must be demoing the SR80i for 2 hours straight, the owner finally came down to me and said he needs to shut shop and I guess you know the end result by now. The HD 600 order stands cancelled and I have the SR80i on my head for 4 hours straight now.

 

My only worry was that the Grados wouldn't be as detailed as my HJE900s but I don't think it's a problem. They do lack the low bass rumble that the Pana's are capable off but I don't seem to miss it.

 

Though to be honest, comfort ain't a strong point, I can keep them on, but I do have headache now with the headphones on for quite some time, though, I guess I would probably get used to it.

 

PS: I have been craving for a pair of Grados for 6 years and finally I get to treat myself with it. Thank you for the huge community either it be love or hate post on the Grado. They are just Hot Rockin'!

Give a try to 80e, if you find. They sounds exactly the same, but more detailed with better bass control against 80i. Anyway, 80i are just great headphones.
