I too am enjoying them a lot. I still think the RS1 sounds better. While the Bushmills have more bass they don't have the clarity of the RS1. things sound more cluttered with the Bushmills and the mids are still a bit harsh to my ears. The treble is also not as refinined and to me sounds a lot like the SR60 treble. Maybe more burn in will improve things. But don't get me wrong it's not a night and day difference between the RS1 and Bushmills but we are all here to nitpick aren't we? If Grado ever does an improved Bushmills that can have the finesse of the RS1 I wouldn't hesitate to spend $700+ on them.

 

I almost have enough cash saved up to grab me a pair of PS500....I have also considered the Bushmills if they ever come back around for another run.....A set of used PS500 would only cost a tad bit more than the Bushmills

 

I would hate to not give the bushmills much head time because of not having as much detail as the RS1i.......I 100% agree that if Grado could produce an improved bushmill that could have the finesse of the RS1i....I would be all over it!

 

I don't really care personally about the limitred edition factor and how many are produced...I am talking strickly about the sound of the cans.....

Nice.
At work I was Alice in Chains MTV unplugged > straight from note 3.
Amazing.
Can't wait to get an amp that matches these to just give them that edge.
They sound fantastic straight out of a phone which blows me away after my previous cans

The way I see it, Grado can't produce an 'improved'' version of the Bushmills, they can however, produce a different version, wich some might prefer, and others might not.

Metal gimbals...I'm just sayin' no wood Grado should have plastic gimbals (sorry RS2).

There shouldn't be ANY plastic on a Grado from the 325 and up, at least the RS2 and up.

Very nice. How much? (Borat voice)

I don't think metal gimbals would have much effect on the sound of the Bushmills, but I see your point, Parbaked.

No but at least it would make a $400 pair of headphones seem less cheap.

FTFY!

Doesn’t the PS500 use plastic gimbals, too? That one’s more than $400...

 

I think we’d all like Grado to use some better materials for the all their headphones. But  we all know that’s not going to happen anytime soon. 

 

But for the Bushmills in particular, the only thing that I think is necessary as it impacts the sound is supplying them with bowls instead of comfies out of the box. I do think that should have been standard as it really improves the detail and imaging - somewhat important aspects of expensive headphones...
