The 80i's that I just got sold me from just trying them on, real comfortable. Then I tested them with spotify, 320k rips and some lossless tracks. Stellar, then I on Scott Pilgrim to watch and WOW was the audio great. Within 15 minutes I was hooked. This is the kind of sound I like, so I was good to go. Even fun with the audio on some of the games on my iPad.

I don't know about you guys, but one of my favorite ways to enjoy my Grados is with live recordings...talk about being transported! 

 

Even though I'm plugged right into my laptop for this one, I can't help but really be moved by the way this music sounds...in fact, Neil Young's music in general is fantastic "grado food"!

 

Enjoy!

A while ago, I was thinking about getting my 225i's woodied.  But now I'm thinking stepping up to the GS1000's would be an even better option.  Any other thoughts?

I've never heard the GS1000 but i read that it is not very similar to the SR sound. if you like the 225 but just want better i highly recommend the RS1, especially with flats.

having said that i'm thinking of modding my 80s with some wood. no idea where to start though. which cups are you looking at?

Just added the PS500 to the stable, One audition did it for me, but I also have other Grados so I knew what I was looking for.

When people identify so strongly with their headphone choice that they take it personally when someone ends up preferring something else, that's when i sign off on the conversation...or at least try to sign off lol. Personally I find it more interesting when the gear preferences are more varied, cause I learn more about what's out there and what qualities the various gear have. As for the PS1ks, I'm DYING to hear them....I was surprised when I bought the GS1ks that my 500s remained my favorite Grados (and favorite headphones in general, actually), so it'll be very interesting to compare my 500s to the flagship Grados. 

 

One thing that you and I have in common that I alwasy get a kick out of is our love for the SR80s...and even though we both have higher end gear to play with, we both still get enjoyment out of the little 80s and can find a place where they fit in among their Grado brethren :)

 

Right now I"m watching a dialogue driven movie on my Kindle Fire...never ceases to amaze me how fantastic the 500s sound directly out of this thing. 

 

It can all be resumed in one word, respect.

 

I bought my SR80i for when i'm sitting at my computer, because i find that their lightweight and their flat pads are more comfortable to wear at the end of the day, when i remove my contact lenses and put my glasses back on. But ever since i've listened to them with the L-cush, it bugs me, because now, i know what i'm missing with the comfies. 

 

Regarding the PS1Ks, you are so happy with your PS500, that the bar is set very high for the PS1K, so i hope that you won't be disapointed, i know i'm not.

I'm really loving my 500s. the RS1 and PS500 cover everything for me except for when I'm in the mood for some heavy bass, which i have ATH-WS99s for.


does anyone know where i can get some replacement screens? the screens on my RS1 are looking very worn.

The RS1 are VERY touchy to open up to change screens. I wouldn't trust anyone to open them up but Grado. They have the experience to unglue the drivers and get to the screens. IME even the experienced modders don't mess with RS1...

There are some people on these forums that will mess with ANYTHING. If they will mess with an HD800, they will mess with anything!
