The RS1i is the absolute king of vocals imo. I even prefer them to my HD800's in this regard. Sure the HD800's are even clearer and more detailled, but the Grados present the vocals with a magical presence and with liquidy smoothness. I love them!

Just got a set of RS2i's.  Serial # 8086.  Loving the Grado sound so far.

 Welcome aboard man!

 

 Hope they're coming along nicely, according to your serial # assuming it's fresh stock - still not

 too many RS2's on this planet.

As well, here's a little more information about the RA-1, if anyone is interested. http://www.head-fi.org/t/91223/is-the-grado-ra-1-a-cmoy/30#post_5778838
 

It should be noted that while Grado Labs has some lovely Melos amps, it isn't often that they're fired up anymore.



 



Thanks for all the amp suggestions!

 

Anyone have any experience with a Matrix M Stage and RS-2i?

 

thx, CJ

You could find them on the wooden cups, under the foam pads.

I've had mine about 2-3 weeks now (RS1i) serial number 9647. I got them used off amazon and they didn't seem too used but then I can't really tell and I'm now on the hunt for a DAC.

I'd like to revive this thread with my entry the RS2i. So far Im more impressed with the build quality upgrades than SQ vs my 225i. Plus the cable has a kink it which is not making me feel very good. P.S. sorry if pics are ginormous
