So much that I'm gonna buy a RS1i pair very soon!
 

Cool-I just bought the SR225i and am waiting for my Schiit Asgard 2- but more for rock, metal, indie, folk, etc.

 

I'm saving and thinking of the HE400 or 500 as as a second set of cans, but could be tempted by the RS1i as well.

 

How about the 500? I'm going to have to give that an audition....

 

I'm thinking RS1 and HE 500 would be pretty darn sweet- and about $1400 spent!

Anyone can say about possible synergy/other experience with Objcetive2 and sr325?

I think I can join the fan club now.
I just picked up a pair of iGrados.
They are replacing the Sennheiser PX-100 ii that I lost! redface.gif

I prefer the iGrados. biggrin.gif

The O2 is a transparent amp, so I don't think the term, synergy, applies.

 

Personally, I've had the SR325is for three weeks and I think they sound great with the O2. I hardly listen to my HD-650's since I bought the Grados.

I know what you mean, i sold my HD600, not long after i've bought my GS1000 and never regreted it.

I agree the MS2i's reproduce guitars beautifully.

I listen to jazz-rock 50/50 and I might even enjoy the way they do the jazz more than the rock at times.

So true!

One interesting feature of the HPA-2 is that the P/S-1 power supply is wired with Joe Grado Signature Ultrawide Bandwidth Cable!

i have always seen comparisons of higher end grado's mostly with their stock pads. is there any thread that rs1i, rs2i and ps500/hf2 are compared with JUMBO pad performances?

Recently got a really good deal on a pair of SR-60i's and I must say, I'm really enjoying the Grado sound.  TBH, I was afraid of the sharp highs that are usually associated with Grado's, but I find the treble not as fatiguing as others have said.

I felt the same way when I tried my first set of Grados....i kept hearing all the talk about crazy brightness and treble, that I guess I was prepared for much worse....one I heard them, I was like, damn these are not too bright at all.

 

After break in my 325i's tamed down and the sound was just fantastic,,,,,I believe they are considered one of the brightest Grados, but they were not too bright for my liking and I loved the in your face sound for rock music and guitars.
