now i love my sr225i, but really, if i had to pick just one, between the two, right now, i'd go with the ms1, the 225 is so revealing to me, if the music you listen to is less than "ideal" sometimes the the 225 can be a little fatiguing , where the ms1 is more forgiving of lesser sources
they are so close in sound, i keep flirting with the idea of selling one to try something else, but then the two work so well for me together
that it makes it hard !!
Are you using the same pads when you compare? The S Cush that come with the MS1 veil the sound and can make the cans more "forgiving".
When I switched to L Cush bowls the sound became more detailed and revealing.
