Well I need to spend some time with the new pair on my own gear.  However, initial impressions are more detail, more openness, good bass, and smooth highs.  But the clencher for me is a nice midrange.  Just glorious in the mids.

Thank you, like I said I was just curious to know if they had the grado signature and what your thought's were. Enjoy them when you recieve them good listening. Thank's.

If I remember the hole deal cost under 5$ U.S, really work's out well.

 

If you search on BING (shaft collar's) image's will come up of the one's I used, I used the one piece collar's with the single set screw, so at least you can see the collar's. 

 

I imagine that laying the headphones flat is not a problem, but i like to have my headphones on stands, but with the PS1000 weight, that's asking for trouble

I agree, and in my opinion, the PS500s have the most unGrado sound of all, definately one of my favorite Grados.

Ended up purchasing a pair of RS2i from Amazon for $380, return unit of course at this price level, but I have in general a very good experience with these Amazon offers and the price was just way to tempting to let it go, although I was still in the moment of deciding whether to get either a RS1 or RS2 to complement my PS500.

 

I will post impressions of this pairing and maybe include the SR80i that I also have.

Congrats on your purchase! ...man, I was just gonna pm you to see if you wanted to audition my Rs2 and in return I could audition your PS500 for a week or two. Oh well, guess I'll have to be patient till I get my "Head-Fi budget" up again.wink.gif

So nice to see so many new Grado owners coming into the fold! Welcome to the club, gents! Sounds like a lot of folks are gravitating toward the RS1s and the PS500s...can't go wrong there!

I don't think your asking for any trouble at all, it's acually the same difference in weight on the rod block's themself's, your just adding the collar's to the rod to keep the adjustment height, the block's with or without the collar's still have the same weight on them, they also come in black if you like,

I'm thinking of buying a CD player as I don't have any and I've been listening to music from notebooks most of the time, I'm thinking of moving to CDs, at least for the things I really like. I currently use the SR325is and I was just wondering if buying a regular audio systems rangeing from 100 to 300 US$ (those ones with speakers and CD player) would be a waste of money in terms of sound to my sr325is?

 

Any idea of playing CDs on the cheap and have decent quality with my sr325is? thanks....

If your main goal is to listen to better audio with your SR225is, best bet would be to rip your CDs to your notebook in lossless format, then get a good DAC/headphone amp setup. If you have a lot of CDs, invest in an external USB CD drive so you don't wear out your notebook CD drive.
