rs1 or rs2?

RS2i here... #6878

 

I know its somewhat blasphemous, but I'm in the process of refinishing my cups... I'll post some pics when done.

post #35 of 213

I'd like to make a suggestion if I may?

 

What if we have a list that starts with the Serial / model RS1 or 2 / User name, and if people actually copied and rolled over the list and included their number in order, for example:

 

0000 Grado RS2 (no serial) - willmax 

1237 Grado RS-2 non-i*button* - WhiteCrow

6878 Grado RS2i - markkr

7452 Grado RS2 - 1995bimmer525i 

7591 Grado RS2i - saved by grace 

7759 Grado RS2i - Roleaux 

8983 Grado RS1i - Arleus 

9057 Grado RS1i - jr41 

9381 Grado RS1i - LugBug1   

 

I saw this in another thread here.

 

At least the OP does not have to update his post every time. =)

Hey Nick you've got a nice set of RS1 there hey, is this the one you got from mlatinen? 

How does the sound compare to your old MS-Pro?

 

Also you could have copied the serial list and included your number as I'd suggested in post #35

I was gonna roll over the serial list, but I thought whitecrow wanted to do it himself confused_face(1).gif

This pair I got from ebay. The one I bought from mlantinen is still in transit, it was supposed to arrive last Tuesday, I'm getting worried since usps express mail is always one week or lesstriportsad.gif

I honestly can't remember what my old MS PRO sounded like.

But on Monday night when I did a side by side comparison with my recabled MS Pro, it went like this in order of increasing brightness: HF2, then RS1, then MS Pro.

I sold my RS1i to buy an HD800, but I missed them so much that I bought another pair. I'm loving it's liquid and intimate sound, It's the perfect companion for the HD800, which is neutral with a huge soundstage. Vocals are absolutely stunning on these!

 

Ain't she pretty? S# is 9934

I have a new pair of RS-1i but I don't know the serial # offhand, will add later.

 

I really enjoy these cans.  They are still breaking in even after 100+ hours.

post #43 of 213

I couldn't stand the terrible finish quality of my RS2i's... so I refinished them, man are they smooooth now. SN#6878

RS-2i #7609

 

these are new and still haven't reached the 100hr mark.  more like 30hrs.  at this point i'm not sure that i like them very much but am hoping they'll settle down and smooth out the highs with more burn-in.  i can certainly see/hear the attraction, in particular with rock music, but having been a senn guy most of my life i am having some trouble adjusting to the sound.  it takes me a song or two to get in the groove but in the end the harsh highs are very fatiguing after an hour or so.  by comparison, switching to my HD600's after that feels like I've crawled back into the womb.  perhaps i'll try waving some dead chickens over them and if they settle down ;)  any tips/advise would be very welcome.

If you find the RS2i harsh you're probably wearing them wrong. If anything, the Grado RS-series are very smooth, even smoother than HD600.

Make sure that you're wearing them correctly. Don't try to wear them over your ears, but ON your ears. Try to wear them as low and as forward as possible from your eardrum. This eliminates harsh highs and greatly improves soundstage.
