I think "wife is a keeper" is the take-away here. Seriously, PS-500s for Christmas? That's almost as nuts as Reese's for breakfast!

+1

 

the 325is are amazing for acoustic and strings as well as vocals.

its incredibly detailed and open when it comes to this,  the 325is are extremely transparant, especially for a 300 dollar headphone. though they do lack bass and can be too bright at times.

Lol!! +1 for the "your wife is definitely a keeper" hahaha

Around 50 hours burn-in time with the PS1000... I'm already liking it more than the RS1i (I still love you, RS1i! Don't forget me!).

Been listening to it thru an AK100 amped with a Pico DAC/Amp...

Guys, I have an Audio engine D1 as DAC/ Amp. I am just wondering if I is it worth getting a tube amp such as the Little Dot 1 + hybrid tube amp? I have a PS500s.....

I don't own the PS500s, but can attest to my four Grados sounding great from the I+. Three families of tubes, rollable opamps, great price, great sound. Winner indeed.

Cheers!

OK, OK ... this is a stupid question and on another forum I know, would get me laughed off of the Internet.  But ... I own and love the SR-225, HF-1, and HF-2.  My question is, does the RS-1 offer any improvements or differences over those three that would justify $695?  Would building a Turbulent Labs Grado from scratch (except for the frame) be better?

Haven't heard the HF series, don't know a thing about the HF-2. Versus the SR-225, yes the RS-1 are a big improvement - they get you out of the "wall of sound" presentation and into a nice 3D bubble (small, but 3D). Much smoother and more "grown up" sounding as well. From what I've read about HF-1/RS-1 comparisons, the RS-1 are tighter and smoother sounding there too. They're the best example of the John Grado on-ear design, and among the best dynamic I've ever heard.

I've never actually heard the RS-2; I'm curious about them though, because on one hand they're described as very similar (I think Grado uses the term "little brother"), and the other as flatter/smoother. The later would actually be more interesting to me, but I went with the RS-1 because I figured if I saved the money and got the RS-2, I'd second-guess myself and want the RS-1. I did not, however, follow that out to completion and realize that I'd end up second guessing *not* getting the RS-2...rolleyes.gif
