It wouldn't let me change the price at first. Tried it again, now it works. But again. The $500 number is not set in stone. I'm anxious to hear from anyone, interested in them or not, in what they think is fair value for these phones.
Haha yeah they're quite a nice piece of Grado history. There was a prototype for the Grado Rs-1 that the guys at Grado auctioned for charity (highest bid was around 1700$), I believe that one was timestamped 1994. So yes this one goes way back, probably one of the earliest Grado Reference Series ever made :) So, what do you think it's worth?
In terms of sound quality per kilogram, these are without a doubt the best headphones out there. They're featherweight but still have that full, agressive grado sound.
These are fantastic. Would you be interested in perhaps trading them for a week or so? I have a pair of magnums that I just put up in the for sale section. You could test out my magnums and I could try out your RS-3s. If this doesn't interest you I fully understand
