Is it worth upgrading from SR60i to RS1i? Or possibly the PS500? What amp would you guys prefer for it? I'm addicted to Grado sound signature and kind of hated Sennheiser sound signature now all thanks to the Grado SR60i xD

Does the RS1i have better accuracy?

I went straight from the SR60/MS1 to RS1i a few weeks ago (I have owned the SR60s since 2007, and the MS1s since 2011).  It is most definitely an upgrade... more accurate, but also more refined than the SR60 (which I still do love and am hanging on to).

If you hated the Sennheiser sound signature then go with the RS1 if you ask me.

You got it---more REFINED. In EVERY area. Transparency, texture, gorgeous cymbal tics and plucked strings, vocal presence. RS1i = most fun cans I've ever had in house.

Accurate ---nope, that's not their strength.

IMHO
post #9248 of 24985
Hmm... If accurate is not it's strength, I think I will just upgrade to RS2i / SR325i/225i + the MA900 combo or something

Not exactly that I hate Sennheisernsound signature, but the highs... Sounds so ewwwwww to my ears after a few weeks with my SR60i xD

Why is it RS1i more expensive than PS500 isn't PS500 a better version? @.@

I LOVE the RS1i but don't think any Grado is the pinnacle of "accuracy"...

...but wouldn't suggest that anyone consider my IMHO in any buying decision.

Put 'em on your head and see what ya think!

RS1i and PS500 sound very different.

 

The PS500 has more rolled off highs compared to the RS1, and has a more elevated mid bass as well. This gives more weight to stuff like pop and some fun bassy genres, but sacrifices the elevated treble/upper mid that Grado's like the SR60 and RS1 have.

 

Not sure what Sennheiser you have, many of the models have very dull treble. Especially in comparison to Grado's which go above neutral.

 

Best to see if you can hear them first, if possible.

Well, compared to the SR60 they are accurate... 

 

:D

The RS2i has its fans, and I can't say for certain that it was worth the $220 difference to have the RS1i, but at the same time I knew that I would have that voice in my ear telling me I should have tried the RS1s.  I figured that bit of cash bought me some peace of mind.

 

:biggrin:

post #9253 of 24985
Thanks guys for the responds! biggrin.gif I think I will probably go for the RS1i, and maybe gift my SR60i to my brother xD it's time for him to upgrade from his Apple earbuds xD

Now the waiting T.T definitely not buying it online or buying locally here... Too expensive.. Online's shipping is way too expensive to ship here ($40) and buying locally here is near impossible

Agreed.  About the best $60 I ever spent on audio... they were an absolute revelation to me. :)
