Is that not pointless? Surely that would mean that there is no point in reversing them as both sides are the same?
And is your ear not touchig the driver?

Yeah, I think (Break Even)  is a very good song, but I don't have anything else.  I'll have to get some other material  from them. Also I haven't listened to that song with the RS's yet, only with the 325's, and I most everyone thinks the 325's are bright, but mine are not bright at all, and from my memory (Break Even sounded) fine with the 325's. I'll listen to it later on with the RS's and hear how it sounds. 

BTW, I like your Avatar, excellent movie, and Sean played the part excellent!!! As they all did!!!

This is the EXTENDED VERSION of Diamonds and Rust by S.O.D. (Stormtroopers of Death):

 

I was also a MetalHead my teen years and in my twenties, now in my mid thirties....well ...not so much!:biggrin:

Be careful. I thought I kicked the habit. But went through a metal mid aged renaissance in my late 30's. Ten years ago! However, age does smooth the ages in some of us and I find myself embracing blues, jazz, and the classic folk, prog and psychedelic music that ran through my parents household in the 70's and 80's. I even found myself picking up J.Cash and W. Nelson anthologies....thanks Dad!

Speaking of guitars, oldies, music, etc., the following has turned out to be a real surprise to me.  Al Di Meola has released "All Your Life (A Tribute to the Beatles") a few weeks back.  No vocals.  Just Al and his guitar covering the songs we all know.  Pretty amazing -- and I'm not the biggest die-hard Beatles fan either.  The details of his playing is excellent when heard through Grados.

BillsonChange007-So I listened to (Break Even) by The Script with the RS's and I didn't find anything bright or harsh about the sound/recording. But like I said this is the only song I have from them, maybe other songs are brighter, but to me, not this one.

@Joseph69 - thanks! Did you listen to the live performance break even or the original? The live performance is fine... Try listening to the song "Hurricanes" by The Script.. That's the harshest track with the Grado...

listened with my modded SR80's out of my E17 (I'm traveling right now) and it was fine... used the flat EQ and I did not find the recording overly bright. However I did discover a new song I like lol

RS1's arrived today.  Look and sound fantastic.  Will try and get photos sometime this week - tried to do it at home tonight - but they really need natural daylight to do them justice.

 

Answered my question from last year too (is there much difference/improvement over a FWJ woodied 325i?) - a resounding yes.

 

Definitely keepers I think.

The only rattles you'd be hearing would be my chair 'jigging' as I'm tapping my toes :D
