Also, what about the rs2i?
The PS500 have good bass extension, mids are lush and smooth, and the treble, is a bit rolled off, they have a ''tubelike'' sound and will be more forgiving of lesser quality recordings, than either the RS1 or RS2s.
The RS1, doesn't reach a low as the PS500, but the bass is very well defined, the mids are, i believe, they're strong point, voices sound very natural, and they have a detailed treble, with good extension, in my opinion, they have a ''matter of fact'' sound signature ,while the PS500 gives a more relaxed presentation.
As far as the RS2 goes, i would say the they have a bit less bass and treble extension than the RS1, and they also have a narrower soundstage.
Hope this helps.
