It takes what we love about the RS-1i and improves everything else. My friend says it solved all his issues with the RS-1i as well...

Vivaldi - The Four Seasons by Israel Philharmonic Orchestra with Grado Sr-325 you should try.

I second that, after almost a year of ownership, i still aven't found anything to complain about my PS1000. As far as i'm concerned they have it all, bass, mids, highs, are all spot on, they have a wide and deep soundstage, and they're lightning fast.

 

My GS1000 hardly see any action, and even my HP1000 get less head time. They say that perfection doesn't exist, so i'm giving the PS1000 a 99.9 %, score.

you guys are killing us me with all this PS1000 talk!  I was just about to give Oprah Satan a call to offer up my SOUL head-fi gears to buy me one of them thangs.tongue.gif

 

......I settled for an Rs1i instead...........for now!evil_smiley.gif

 

after I decide between my Rs2 and soon to come Rs1i, one of them is getting the axe in favor of the PS500...(p r o b a b l y)

There's only a very small difference between the RS1i and the PS500... So just go for the PS1000!!!

I am definitely considering this for my future upgrade. I'm assuming the Rs1i's are still a good compliment to the PS1000 right?

My RS1is are on extended loan to a close friend... PS1000 for me!

post #6368 of 26880

If I were ever going to upgrade from my RS1i...... I would consider the PS1000

 

My only concern would be that they look pretty heavy...are they?

 

My RS1i is very , very light on my head....I can tell the difference in weight between the RS1i and the 325.

 

I would also have to get rid of my RS1i if I ever upgraded to the PS100, as I could not justify keeping both pair for the amount of money that would be tied up.

 

I would love to listen to the PS1000 to hear and feel the weight difference.

same here. I had an LCD2 and it was pretty heavy and uncomfortable. I took a chance on buying an Rs2, since after owning an sr125i and 225i I swore I would never buy another Grado again. Boy was I surprised with the Rs2, I fell in love with it and I got rid of the LCD2 and never looked back.

Anyhow, I would love to hear the PS1000, but I'm not a big fan of the big cups and bowls, I wish it was in the form of the Ps-1.

I hear you man, I know exactly where you are coming from.

 

I hear one of the biggest complaints of Grado's is they are not comfortable.

 

My RS1i are nothing but light...very, very comforftable, as I wear them for hours at a time, and they make guitars sing.

Indeed. I too find the RS1i very light and comfortable. I love mine. I also enjoy my sr225i, and hopefully this week, a pair of Alessandro ms2 modded with Magnum drivers.

I agree, the RS1 and RS2 are super comfortable because they are so light! The same goes for my V5 in Vibro Classic Cups. The key is to make sure to bend the headband apart enough to relieve clamping force. Then the wood Grados sit on your head like a feather.

The PS1000's are lighter than my HiFiMan HE500's, but don't clamp as tightly so movement is not  recommended. They are very comfortable, though!

You can bend the headband to clamp them more securely.

They are designed to have a limited amount of adjustability.

Additionally, adjusting their "height" on the rods will influence clamping force, to a lesser extent. It can take a little while to tweak them into the most comfortable position, but it's certainly worth it if you're going to be wearing them for a while. smily_headphones1.gif
