Grado Bushmills X - Grado's first closed-back headphone? - Page 43

post #631 of 666

Yes the cans are limited, don't know and haven't read anything on how many pairs were made. They had a sign on waiting list for additional pairs if they do decide to make another run, currently there are no plans to make another run.

PLEASE! Correct me if I'm wrong, but the 3.5mm minijack seems like it would imply the SR80i although, a review I read on them said they "sound" like the SR325i, which is closer to the price-range. Knowing the slight differences (although very effective) as the prices increase on Grados, a fancy leather headband and custom wood cups seem like they'd increase the cost of the SR80i by a few hundred, especially if the wood cups, band, and fancy cases are handmade (the video seems to imply that they are).

No they don't sound like the 325is, 225is or 80is....I own all of them. I also owned a ps500. To me the Bushmills sound almost identical to the ps500.

I'm going on memory here, but I agree with bassboysam, that the Bushmills don't sound like the SR325i, but personnaly I think that their sound signature is closer to that of the RS1i's, than the PS500's.

 

I have the Lcush on my Bushmills, and with these pads, I actually prefer the sound of the Bushmills, to both, the PS500 and RS1i, but then what do I know, I prefer the PS1000 over the sacred, HP1000.

 

I know that many people will probably disagree with me, but what can I say, I just call it, like I see it.

I have an older buttoned RS1, and they don't sound similar to me at all. The Bushmills are a lot less aggressive in the mids and have more bass. I've never heard the RS1i though.

I had the bush mills and the Alessandro ms pros and I would say the bushmills are similar in that they are smooth but the bush mills are less refined in every regard and have a mid bass hump.
They are a very pleasing listen but in no way as good as the ms pro (which is like a defanged rs1 IMO)

In saying that I probably preferred the bush mills for listening enjoyment. They just made me smile

You have me interested but I can't get the link to open. Could it be because I don't have a Facebook account? By another one do you mean a Bushmills X Grado 2?

Just in case anyone is interested, there is a pair of Grado Bushmills for sale on Canuck Audio Mart... I'm not connected to the seller in any way.

For anyone who is interested, I just received an email from a Turntable Labs, the Grado Bushmills are available once again.
