I didn't get to listen to the rs1i while I was in the store. For me dishing out $700 for a pair a headphones is more than I can afford. When I meant that money is not a problem. I was regarding the sr325is and rs2i because I have ~$600 to spend and I want the best for my money. That being said. Would you happen to know if there is any signifiant improvement going form sr225i to sr325is or rs2i? If the improvement is a good one, I will buy the rs2i but if not I think I won't. Also, for me the weight and size of the headphone matters. I do plan on taking these out of the house and listening to them. Which headphone is larger? the SR325is or RS2i? and which one is heavier? Also if you think that taking the Grados out of the house is the worst Idea in the world. Could you give me a recommendation on a pair of headphones that are great for classic rock and are also better for environments outside of the house. EG: school, city, bus?
Thanks in advance.
Easy call there ~ RS2i or bust :-)
I've tried going out with my 325i ~ it's beyond madness, the weight of the cups, the cable already quite
thick will also need the step-down adapter from 1/4 to 1/8inch to fit digital players - RS2i is quite a bit lighter
and that makes it workable for outside use. Hey if John Mayer (not a fan) walks the
streets of NY with a pair of Grado woodies ~ you too can do RS2's out in public :-)
