I'm not an audiophile. I choose higher end audio because my hearing is muddy and muted. I have a hard time hearing high frequencies, but are still bothersome when present. Am I the bottle cap? Is the rs2 the best my ears can do? I don't think so. Some would recommend hd800's for someone like me, but the way people describe them is very similar to what I experienced with the 325i.. Harsh. I remember cringing when I got up into the higher notes on piano.
I listen to all kinds of music, but I mainly use headphones while playing piano. The piano sounds AMAZING with the RS2i, much much clearer sounding than lcd2s. Why is that??
Remember, I'm not an audiophile, just a guy who wants to hear the most from his music.
