It has to do with the time/effort to take apart the cans and the potential cost of replacement parts.
The system works great for people with trashed cans, but not for those who need a minor repair.

Thanks for that info. Do you know if they often replace working drivers just because they are doing other work?

i've heard that they often "upgrade" the drivers to whatever the most recent driver for that model is. for example if you sent them an SR225, they would upgrade it to the SR225i driver.

They only upgrade the drivers if it is required or if it is the most efficient solution.

happened to me.

 

had a driver failure the day i purchased an RS1, so i sent them in, they replaced the drivers with RS1i drivers for $100, and i paid $40 to get a new headband as well, then i just bought new pads and i basically had a brand new RS1i with the old school button cups.

Yeah.  I saw that she snuck it into another Grado thread.  I never would have seen it if I weren't trying to evaluate the GS1000 vs. the RS1.  The jury seems overwhelmingly in favor of the RS1i, with the GS1000 getting very few accolades, comparatively speaking.

 

I am seriously thinking about putting my 5LE's up for trade, but I'll wait until I get the Alpha Dogs in a few weeks before I decide.  But if the Alpha's come even close, and considering they're closed, I might just have to go with high-end Grado's.

DOH!!  Should have put that in a "spoiler alert" box, sorry...:confused_face_2:

Yeah!, since Dubstep Girl's comments on the PS1000 are, shall we say, not all favorable, I did suggest to her, that she should start her own thread to post her impressions of the PS1000, instead of posting them in the ''PS1000 Appreciation thread'', as I had done a while back, when I compared the PS500 with the RS1i.

 

Regarding the GS1000i vs RS1i question, I guess I'm the black sheep of the jury, but since I own, and love, the PS1000, that should come as no surprise. I preffer the sound signature of the GS1000i to that of the RS1i, I'm a sucker for the GS1k's deeper bass, and bigger soundstage. That being said you have to agree, that having to choose between the GS1000i and RS1i is a rather beautyful problem. ;)

Stacker45: I'm going to put this publicly, rather than via PM, as it seems to be a problem when controversial top headphone models are discussed. How do you think you'd feel if someone made three posts in a thread about YOU because they didn't like your impressions of headphones? From time-to-time we get people trying to marginalise opinions that they don't like about a product, which doesn't result in anything other people becoming pissed off. I hope that is not what you're trying to do. 

 

I would think that fans of a company and their products would appreciate as much their failings as well as their achievements. Rather than reply to it (because I wont be checking this thread) please just consider this before you post any more. If you don't like reading negative comments about a pair of headphones you like a lot, I would suggest simply not reading any discussion of them, because they are going to come up.
