695 USD. Hurts indeed.

Kudos and enjoy.  $$ well spent, No other headphone puts you on stage with the musicians like the RS1.  Give them time to burn in and enjoy the gig!!

I bought a used pair, but they only have about 50-75 hours on them supposedly.....we shall see.

 

kramer5150......I love what you are saying....I cant wait to listen to them.

 

I am planning an all nighter.....with the first album being something accoustic....maybe Neil Young  smile_phones.gif

 

Others on the stage for the all nighter with definitely be Pink Floyd.....Robert Cray & The Beatles

The K701s and the RS-1s were my two main cans for a long time. The 325s will have more visceral impact with the aluminum cans compared to the wooden cans. But the RS-1s are a treat. Enjoy.

I've had probably a dozen or more mid to high end headphones, and none have even come close to the RS1s I had. This was pre-i series, but if they are even 75% as good, you will be selling the 325s the night you receive them.

 

Pair them with a Mapletree Audio amp and you'll never leave your chair.

The RS1i's cost over twice as much as your current 325i's. Hopefully you find that it is worth the wallet damage hah. Will be waiting to hear your review on it.

post #11 of 26

Yeah, remember to give us a review esp comparing the 325i.

kramer 5150 thank you for posting those youtube links.

 

I get more excited about the RS1i the more that I read you guys replies....saying that I won't listen to the 325i's after hearing the RS1i's.

 

That is just hard for me to comprehend, because I love these 325i's so much.

 

I will make sure I let you know what I think of the RS1's compared to the 325's.

 

The anticipation of getting these is killing me, lol......but in the meantime I am still going to keep rocking these 325's  smile.gif

It is like when I got the MS2i, I no longer want to listen to the MS1i even I have been trying lol. Maybe it will happen to the MS2i when I got a MS-Pro lol.
