SR325is is the best for acoustic, but is tiring if you switch from one genre of music to another. Same thing with RS1i.
RS2i seems very well balance for my taste. Not as tiring as the RS1i. I originally was looking for a sound signature between Sr325is and PS500s and I thought it was the RS1i, but it wasn't. I found the RS2i better, but the woody is veriy delicate for my taste. I hate it being scratched....
Sold my PS5000s-My only quality headphone . I had $250 left for this hobby and was about to pull th trigger on the Vmoda M100 for $50 more, but i cannot keep myself from looking back to Grado. Thinking Bout the SR225, but I need a better soundstage and a bit more bass impact. Went online and found out the Alessandro MS2i dull grey finish like the PS5000s. I heard this is the newer batch. Seller bought it end of Jan2013 for $299. Decided to sell it due to tenitis? I got it for $220 mint. It is a blind buy for me. I am okay if it is tamer than my sold 325is but i heard it has a better soundsatge than intimate presentation by the 325is. For the price i am hoping it is better than the 225 or even the 325is. The only way to find out is to hear it live! It will be here tomorrow.
If i do not like it. I will sell it here same price when I bought it. Email receipt from owner included.
