Consodering they were the demo models i had listened to, i think they had enough burn in time.
The 325is' sound "cold" to me, while the 80i's sound warmer, and had a bigger soundstage.

The difference are less now than before the "i" upgrades as the two models now have the same size cups.

Before the "i" upgrades the 325 had larger outer cups than the SR 60/80/125/225 and IMO the difference was more apparent.

well, they are all the same, but different !?!? lol,   with the 3 i've heard, each ones strengths were different enough to where i could pick one as the best one day, and then a different one another day, now the 3 i've heard are the 60i, the ms1, and the 225i now i've kept the 225 , and sold the other 2, and now i've got the ms1 on the way, and i may buy another 60, and sell the 225, i don't know, but its sure fun playing in this sand box ! lol

I have the SR80i's with the L-cush pads. Absolutely love them! So, of course, I'm thinking of upgrading beyersmile.png

 

What's the next step above the SR80i's where I will hear a noticeable difference?

When i went to the shop (where i eventually bought my RS-2) and said, after listening, that i liked the SR80i more than the SR324is, the store owner looked pretty upset, and said "that is impossible"

it seems that i'm not the only one thinking this though.

 

If you liked the SR80i more than the 324iswink.gif, than you're living proof that it is possible to prefer the SR80i.

 

My favorite Grados are the PS1000, and it wouldn't bother me one bit if you'd tell me that you prefer your RS2 to the PS1000, in fact, i'd be happy for you, because that would mean that you saved yourself a lot of money.

I agree.

That depends on your budget, i think that they're are slight differences between all of the SR models, at least up to the SR225i. For me, that means that your SR80i are giving you the lion's share of the SR225i sound.

 

If you intend on keeping your SR80i, and you want something with a really different sound signature, you might want to listen to the PS500, if you can stretch it.

I went from the sr80i to the 225i. I ended up selling the 225i because it just didn't give me the same experience I got from the 80i. The 80i was just a more "fun" headphone. While the 225i was definitely more powerful, but a bit more fatiguing to me.

A lot of stuff came in and I survived with Grado cans since I join headfi.

I heard no real difference between the 60 and the 80. *Shrug*

I didn't hear any really significant difference until I got to the 225 and 325, and between the two, i prefer the 225 because of price/performance. the 325 seems so extremely underperform at its price tag.

I hear ya..it really is an addiction isn't it! I am missing my 125i so much I have decided to get another one, trying to hold out as long as possible, maybe I'll save enough money for the RS1i by then and can actually upgrade my system instead of sidegradeing it <LOL>

I've noticed that the newest batch of the 325is and the MS2i have more mid bass than the previous batch, and I've also noticed that the newest batch of MS2i add some depth to them compare to the previous batch

Only joking around around about the comment from stacker45. I personally love the sound of the 80i also!

How is the SR80i more "fun" than the SR225i?

 

I'm assuming the SR225i offers more detail, clarity, and soundstage over the Sr80i?    

 

That's what I'm looking for in an upgrade to the SR80i.
