So I spent the evening playing with headphones and amps at my local shop and having a blast figuring out what all works well together and putting it against everything else. Now I'm a tone and impact guy (Listen to hard rock and metal mostly) so soundstaging and ultimate macro detail isn't my primary criteria so my results may vary from yours.
What I learned out of it all was that my LCD2s are currently majorly underamped and the Mjolnir sounds awesome with them. Beat a pile of other HPs and tied with a couple others. But right before I left I saw a RS2i chilling on the shelf and felt the need to give it a try after my utter disappointment with the PS1000. The sound floored me, it had the guitar presence that made the 225s get a tie but more bass impact than the LCDs.
The only thing that stopped me from walking out with a pair and a Valhalla was the RS1i. Which of course they don't stock... So has anyone heard both through the same system and can comment on the sound? I did a google search but some people say they are totally different and others that they are very similar which left me baffled.
Thanks in advance for any replies!
