Help me decide - Grado GS-1000 or Grado PS-500

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

Can't decide on which way to go here, so push me one way or the other off the fence:

 

MINT Grado GS-1000 $630 or pre-order Grado PS-500????

 

Thanks in advance.

Hahaha.... one with lousy history and one that have not been released yet.

 

 

I remind you that GS-1000's sound is quite different from any other Grado headphones.

Do you listen to a lot of classical and large orchestral works?

 

That is a mighty fine price on the GS1000i though.

Since you already have an Ms Pro ~ it really is a case of becoming a Grado-phile from here on in..

I have the MS-Pros, which I chose over the RS-1 as I liked what sounded more neutral to me. I've also had a set of HF-2s that I wish I'd kept...

What is it that you want from your next headphone?

 

Eg, warmth, treble, bass, sound-stage?

Haha, why not try and wait for some impressions on the PS 500s, that good deal for the GS1000s may go though.

Yeah, I really would say just go for PS-500 or buy another HF-2. But GS-1000 for 630 bucks is incredible deal.

Non I GS1000 don't normally go for much more than that so there's no need to force yourself to make a decision in a hurry.

You should wait if you are not sure.

I passed on the GS1000s and I am trying to sell the MS-Pros and shooting for the PS-1000s biggrin.gif

I prefer the RS-1 to the GS1k, so just do a trade for RS-1's afterwards haha!

 

As good as the PS500's could be, they won't be as good as RS-1's which a lot of people already have, so I don't understand the hubbub with them...

I've owned all the dynamic flagships (and almost every Grado), and these are number one in my book.
