Nope...RS1 definitely better than the Bushmills.

Has anyone else received their Bushmills from the second batch yet?

I still can't use the quote function, but to answer parbaked's question, I did try the Bushmills with the HPA-2, and they definately make magic together.

 

The Bushmills have really caught me by surprise, I was expecting them to sound good, but not that good, so they're good looks, they're nice box and carrying bag, they're comfort (light as a Feather), and the fact that they should not only hold they're value, but might even appreciate over time, are all icing on the cake, as far as I'm concern.

Yeah, that may have been me, but I haven't heard anyone else reporting on how they liked their new Bushmills,was just wondering.

I received mine from the second batch and little over a week ago and haven't heard anything about another batch being released, but then again not many people received theirs from the second batch yet, I don't believe because I haven't read much about them.

Well I got mine.  They are beautiful looking and sound great, but I think I'm going to probably be putting them up on the sale forums.  Apparently I've just become too much of a basshead.  One of my starting headphones was the SR80, and I moved up quickly to a magnum v4.  Eventually I traded that off and got a pair of the Denon D600s.  I missed my magnum and eventually bought another but didn't end up loving it anymore as it didn't have enough bass.  I was really hoping that these would be perfect as a bassier Grado, but apparently my tastes have moved on.

Female vocals did sound amazing on these though, and they were light and comfortable (I bought a pair of L cush pads and preferred those).  The only flaw I saw in them was a kinked cable that some other people were reporting.

The way they pack the headphones cable into the box with the carrying bag makes the cable a mess, that was the first thing I noticed. I straightened mine by hanging the headphones and using a blow dryer while lightly massaging the cable straight, and it is fine. When I repackaged them, I did a much better job with the cable by coiling it on top of the bag and putting a twist tie on it to hold. I will eventually put them up for sale being I already have three Grados and don't need a fourth, but I was very curious to hear them. I would have definitely kept them if this wasn't the case, they are beautiful and sound very, very nice!

Did you light any aromatic candles or use scented massage oils?
