post #8011 of 27077

well, reluctantly , and with trepidation (because i fear it may not stick) the 225's have moved on to another, it'll be his first grado i believe.

since obtaining the ms2, i thought it would be a good idea to let the 225 go, sometimes what seems to be a good idea doesn't end up that way since getting into the personal audio thing, i really haven't had buyers remorse, i've had sellers remorse a few times !!

i have thought about getting an 80 hoping it'll keep my taste for the basic grado sound satisfied.

the TTVJ flats came in today. put them on my RS1 and it was instant wow! you lose a bit of soundstage but the gain in bass is well worth it for me. the highs seem a bit smoother too to me compared to the bowls but it could be the increased bass causing that.

The earliest 325 and RS1 came with the flat pads and I agree that they are the best alternative to the bowls!

Good Choice!

You can also try the TTVJ Flat Pads for more bass, but the L-cush will probably stay on your head better when you are banging it.basshead.gif

Just opened the box to my RS1i's, and giving them a quick run through before I let them run over night. Wow. I thought my SR225i's were good (well, they are...)

 

Immediately the biggest difference to me is that the voices are less forward than on the 225i's. That is to say, they sound better mixed with instrumentation. Listening to Jonsi/Sigur Ros, I haven't heard this presentation from either the 225i or the AKG Q701s. It's also much more airy and detailed, similar to difference when I switched from the SR60 (non-i) to the SR225i. It is still most definitely the Grado sound, however.

 

It also sounds very different to the HF2 I listened to at the last headfi meet here in Austin. More air and less boom.

 

The build quality is fantastic, for Grado. The medal gimbals are a small detail that really sets it apart. The mahogany is beautiful! I think we are going to be good friends....

This is what happened to me when I purchased the MS2i, they are awesome, but I personally didn't hear that Grado sound signature, this is why I traded for the 325is, and I still had to  repurchased the 80i which gave me the original Grado sound signature in the first place, and like I've said before I love both for what they are, but the 80i really draws me into the music.

no don't feel bad !! glad to help, thats one of the cool things about this hobby, just spreading the joy !!

i can always get another, we're on on a journey, trying new things

i still haven't heard the 80, or 125, and i want to, now i can, and i have somewhat of a reference to go on

someday, the ms2 may go, so that i may go further upstream , who knows, i'm just having fun !!

 

oh, and do you still have the ms1's on your profile ?? i had them too at the same time as the 225's

and i love them, are you using the s-cushes that it comes with ?? i very much preferred the bowls on them,

and did not like to tape them , where i did like tape on the 225, just my experience, play around a little

maybe a tiny little bit, i only noticed when switching back and forth between flats and bowls once your brain and ears adjust i don't think you will feel like the soundstage is too narrow. I also think that the increased bass and punch is worth the slight decrease in soundstage, it just makes the RS1 more fun. Also whenever I am in the mood for something more laid back I can just throw the bowls back on :)

I like the flat pad (Comfies, S-Cush) quite a bit, but with my glasses they tend to hurt my ears after a little while.  More than the bowls do, anyway.  I got the shop I bought my 225is at to throw them in for free, which was nice.

Modded L-cush earpads to angle the driver with the compressed part facing forward (just like what Audeze does)

Seems to provide a more coherent, transparent, focused and organic soundstage. Thought i'd just share it with you, also i used a thread and needle to compress it, no glue and those messy stuff wink.gif
