Grado SR325is & PS1000 version 2011??? - Page 2

I have a theory that the SR325i might be more like the MS2i than the SR325is.  I had the 325is, and it was bright enough to peel paint.  But I absolutely love my MS2i's in spite of the fact that I also have HF2's and RS2i's that I also adore.


I have a buddy whose ears I trust almost more than my own.  He has the goldie 325i, and he swears by them.  I know he wouldn't have liked the 325is that I had.  I've never heard the "i", but I know the consensus seems to be that the "is" and "i" aren't that different, but maybe they are?

How disappointing.


I don't know where your friend is getting his information from but Grado Labs advised me that the new chromed version of the PS1000 actually weighs a few grams more than the model it has replaced. According to Grado, the chrome finish was adopted because it is more consistent and durable. I personally prefer the superseded matte aluminium finish and managed to source a new one but they were scarce on the ground.

If anyone gets these grados, could they put up frequency charts comparing this year and their own grados of the same model?
