ahahah i know! i googled "gh1" and set it to past weeks results only and that image came up and I got all sweaty and excited and was just like, well crap if the gh1 is gonna be that beautiful and my tireless search for a buttoned rs1 is gonna be this exhausting maybe i should grab the gh1 instead and make the sign of the cross over the rs1 for good (save myself the white hair)  :rolleyes:

i don't know what it is about the buttons that just looks so good! I think they should bring it back (it IS the heritage series!)

WOW!

 

Congrats worms!  :smile:

 

Isn't it amazing that even when someone thinks it can not sound any better...that it actually can.....especially when you get to the top tier type of cans....then the rest of the chain comes into play so much more.

 

When people say that good cans scale really well.....I guess they are not lying.  They have the ability to sound even better as your chain improves.  

 

Anyway...congrtas, dude.....enjoy your Chord Hugo and that great arsenal of cans that you have....you are a lucky guy  :beerchug:

yes Sir! definitely true what they say how TOLT headphones scale up quite well with better gear.

 

I can't wait to hook this up to my amps over the weekend, I was really impressed again with the Mad Ear+ last week (last time I heard it), should be an Epic session!:bigsmile_face:

And I'm just sitting here with a bunch of sub-%100 amps and DACs...


But you shall not tempt me! I'm saving up to get married next year. Part of the reason I decided to part with the 325is, even though the girlfriend liked it.

Guys I just lookup the eGrado on amazon and found this gem:

I contacted Grado directly about this issue. I was very surprised by this effect, and thought that it may be an anomaly. This was their response to me, in its entirety: "please return your headphones for a refund." Now *that's* customer service. </sarcasm> So, return them, I will.

Epic review by dorkboy.  But I've never heard a pair of cheap headphones that do dubstep justice.

Looking forward to reading more impressions! Would love to hear how it performs as a DAC feeding your other amps?

I asked about me wanting to buy an Rs1e but since the Gh-1 is almost the same price, I asked "Will the new headphone sound very close to the Rs1e?"

 

Grado's response:

 

Hi Nelson

the RS1e is the better headphone

the GH1 will perform between  the RS2e and RS1e

thanks

 

 

so in conclusion, this gives me the impression it won't be the same as the Rs1e, which, btw, I WOULD like to hear it for myself one day....

Very confusing, I'll just have to wait too hear it, thanks.

I've never seen the first 17 versions, but I think that Grado has set the bar pretty high for themselves with those nice 18 years anniversary RS1e, I can't wait to see what they'll come up with next year, for the 19th anniversary edition. :rolleyes:

 

I have to give Grado some credit for finding a semi creative way to get rid of a few RS1e.

 

That being said,I think that they should have been a little more subtle. They could've called them, ''Thai Edition'', or, ''Bangkok Edition'', because writing ''18 years'' on the earcups is a bit far fetched, and it makes them look desperate.

 

Unchi said in a previous post Grado only made 40-50 of these in Thailand. Until proven otherwise, I have little reason to doubt it. So... I really think it's a partially sincere effort from Grado part to make a Thailand special edition.

 

As to why they don't named them Thai Edition, I don't know. I know for sure they can't name them Bangkok Edition though, can't they? lol
