Grado Fan Club! - Page 527

post #7891 of 18777

By the way all, I've been a fan of Bassboysam for a few years now.  We both participate in another forum, so please excuse any inside jokes- I know they can be annoying.

 

Anyway, Sam is one of the most creative and innovative bassists in the Stoner/Doom genre.  His band, Monobrow, pretty much transcends the cliché's in this form of heavy music, and they have a humor and intelligence to their music that I think is what makes them accessible, even if you're not a fan of heavy, sludgy rock.

 

I also think Grado's are a perfect headphone to check them out with.  It is just some very fine, instrumental music with more than a little 'kick' to it.  Y'all should give them a listen:

Someone told me MS1 is closer to MS-PRO then the MS2 which has a more aggressive sound. I can audit them here but... try not to..to stay away from the poison hehe.

thanks

 

Honestly, I probably couldn't compare accurately since it's been a while since I owned the RS1i. The Magnum is a bit tamer in the highs from memory. I sold the RS1i and kept the MS2i because I feel it's just the better bang for buck.

I have an early pair of MS2 that is very neutral (for a Grado).

Excellent cans!

RS1s arrived today. From what i can tell they are the RS1 classic (white drivers, black headband). I don't know what it is but they had an instant wow factor as soon as i heard the first few notes. Going to give then a good listen tonight. But right off the bat the mids/low mids are so rich and the instrument seperation is incredible.

I'll try and get some with better lighting this weekend. I did more resrarch and it seems these would be a very early RS1 classic/sem-vintage. Pink drivers, no serial number, round cutouts for the cable and based on some of the residue, the pads were originally glued on.

Behold!

Just got these a little while ago. SR225i moded with mahogany cups and reterminated with a Neutrik gold 3.5mm plug. They look gorgeous, and sound pretty great, but I the wood adds some treble dampening. As much as I'm enjoying them, I do really miss the agressive Grado treble. Think I might sell these and just buy a stock SR225i :P Turntable first, though. Sooooooo if anyone wants them really badly, let me know :)
