Just be careful as the thicker 8-conducter cable is really heavy as well.

I would say, the 325is has a bit more details, though.  When Eric Clapton pluck the guitar strings,  I could hardly hear that string vibration. (Reverberation) , unlike the 325is .

 

I might miss the  PS500s sub bass, but I am very impress overall!    I am definitely keeping the MS2i.    I think you guys need to consider the Alessandro model too!

 

I think the sound of strings -- guitar, bass, violin, and even the harpsichord -- sound more realistic on the 325is compared to other headphones I've heard like the HD-650, DT 990, and T 70. It's the sound I'm looking for. If the MS2i misses those details, maybe it's not for me.

 

Could you compare the PS500, for that kind of details, with the 325is?

PS500s mid-bass will overpower the details of the highs.... That is the one thing i missed with the 325is.  But the 325is small studio like soundstage doesn`t give me the  openness (wider) sound that I was looking for... If I would primary use the headphone for " string ' Genre of music or vocals,  I would definitely get the 325is.

 

The PS500 has that wider soundstage , but it is tube like sound - inside a quiet subway???  Doesn`t have the 3d effect.  It sounds wide, but contained. - no echoing ..... ???

 

The Ms2i is very balance.  It does have enough bass that last longer , enough mids and highs to hear details.  The reason why it lost a bit of details compare to the 325is is due to the better (wider) soundstage.  You basically move away from the source of the sound maybe 2 rows down.  The 325is is like sitting next to the guitars being strum... The PS500s is about 10+ feet away... 

 

If you want details, I would get the 325is. If you want to compromise between the 325is and PS500, I would get the MS2i....

 

BTW,  the details of the Ms2i is way better than the PS500s....

Thanks for the impressions of the MS2i, Awgd8! And, as always, beautiful photography!

 

I am not surprised that the soundstage depth is better than the SR325is. To me, that was the most striking feature of the MS1i's sound when I heard it - the soundstage depth surpassed the Prestige Series headphones. It makes me curious to try both the MS2i and the MS-Pro.

Thanks Biscuitz!  I am not an audiophile, but I tried my best to differentiate what I honestly hear from each Grado phones that I am interested with..

I think, my ears prefer the Alessandro sound signature..... beerchug.gif

This was the exact reason I traded the MS2i for the SR325is. I could not hear every little detail which is what I was used to hearing coming from the SR80i. Plus I love the attack of the SR325is.

Nice way to put it!!! I thought the PS500 + the SR325is would be what you wanted, the MS2i. Congratulations once again!

Personally (for now anyway), Either the Shure SRH-840 or the Ultrasone HFI-580.

Otherwise it's 325is or AKG Q702.

post #6598 of 27793

thank :)

 

and are you going for, lets say a equivalent sound signature or use the opportunity to explore something different when you cant go open air ?

I just saw this for sale on eBay, looks a little cheap for an RS1, but I figured I would share here on Head-fi. Check it out! $276 USD
