I thought this too until I got the RS1i's. But they are still very smooth and more so than any other (not including the RS1i for those that are easily confused) Grado I have listened to which is all of them from the RS1i and below. 

 

These are a perfect Grado for anyone that has ever complained about Grado being too bright and/or lacking bass. The BM is neither.

if you have 26 minutes have a seat and listen to this Black Mountain show with your Bushmills, other Grados would be acceptable as well ;),   Running it with my Fiio E10 and LD MKIII, nice big warm sound.

I am listing to the Empire Strikes Back sdtrk. but I am using a set of HD600 though as the Girl friend has my BxG's on listening to the same thing she loves it.

Hi guys listening to my Bushmills for the first time at home. So far only ran them with theorem or iphone. With my home amp and dac there great. Really are a fine effort from Grado. Lovely sound. Looking forward to a few days off and just enjoying them:-) Happy holidays every one. Thanks Grado you made my Christmas .

The BxG is hooked up to the Magni and the RS2 is hooked up to Vali. these combos are simply amazing. 

 

BxG 395.00 Magni 99.00 Magni adds a little more treble detail to the BxG, I feel this is a better match then Vali as it is "darker/watery" amp This is an excellent combo if you want to brighten up the BxG just a bit. The bass and mid range with the magni is well controlled not bloated not floppy.

 

RS2 495.00 Vali 120.00 Just wow this little combo is amazing. The amount of detail that is present in the RS2 is just slightly more then BxG just slightly but you can hear a difference. The bass is normally not know well with the Grado line up but this just sounds smooth and is present. The treble is tamed slightly compared to the magni but it is still detailed.

About three days ago there was a pair on the F/S forum, I believe they were going for $450.00U.S, and they were on for about a day when I was looking at them.

If your reading this thread and don't own them and see a pair for sale do your self a favour and just buy them. Really nice sweet sound. There like a baby hf2 in a way. Lovely warm bass with good body yet with a good top end. Have yet to find any music that does not suit them yet.Playing them straight for over four hours and still laughing and bopping around. I think these are the second best value Grado headphones you could buy after Alessandro MS1. Really in enjoying them.

Yeah, I definitely think they are worth the $400. I'm not sure I'd pay much more than that though unless for the collector aspect.

Yeah I haven't heard the rs1i as yet. I have wanted a pair for a while but at $850aud vs $480 for the bushmills (delivered) I just can't fork that much out on a pair of headphones again. Not for a while anyway.

I can understand that. I've always thought the RS1 was an awesome headphone but honestly, when I demoed a bunch of Grados a few years ago, the RS1 and RS2 were pretty close to my ears, definitely not worth the additional money to go with the RS1 over the RS2. Only reason I got the RS1 now is because I sold my Bushmills for more than I paid AND got a heck of a sweet deal on the RS1 to begin with. Otherwise, I probably would still have just the SR325's and I'd be happy with that.

 

But that said, the BM is still an excellent Grado worth the money you spent and I'm sure you'll be happy with them. I would have been.

The Bushmills are a very nice headphone indeed! I listened to mine for about 8 hours and then decided to re-package them in the original shipping box and put them away in the hopes that they will become a collectors item one day, or if I want to let them go for another piece of equipment I can. Plus I have the 80i's, 325is's and the RS1i's, so I really don't need 4 pairs of headphones. Also the 325is's that I own are in no way what so ever bright/shrill and never where from day one. They are actually very warm with a real nice amount of bass presence all around and the mid-range is bold and very full (especially for guitar/vocals), and when I want to listen to music just a bit louder than usual I use the 325's without any fatigue in the high frequencies at all! And I know, I'm one of the few who think/have a pair like this.

I'm one of the few as well.
