They seem flatter than AKG K240S, with treble not being rolled off as much. The bass extends nicely, and all tracks from my collection I tried so far have no bass problems. Whenever there is a prominent bass line, the lower notes do not sound quieter than the higher ones. I can hear deep bass just fine, and there is very little distortion. The foam does make the ears warmer to an extent, but beyond that extent they don't start to sweat, like SOME HEADPHONES MAKE THEM. They are very light, and DO NOT flatten my hair, like the flat plastic headband of K240S does.

 

Grado representative promised me the thing is neutral, and they didn't lie to me, which is kind of nice.

 

The only one thing I wish to add: I want Grado to start adding removable cables to all of their models. Like, ALL OF THEM. I wonder if anyone here mods them...

 

IMO, the RS1s are 35% better than the SR80s for 7x price.  The SR80e is the best value hp in market.

aren't they still under warranty? also are you sure it's the driver and not the cable that is defective?

 

my sr60i took just under 5 years of daily (and i do mean every single day no less than five hours and usually more per day) of use/abuse before needing to be re cabled and even out of warranty it only cost $25 (which included return shipping from gradolabs).when i asked for an estimate of how long it would take to get them back i was told up to 60 days but i think they were just being overly cautious because i had them back on my doorstep good as new in less than eight days.i would email (or phone) them here and find out.best of luck

If you only had them a few weeks, how could you say "while they lasted"???

Don't even think twice about returning them for a new pair!

Btw, my father has a turntable (in a cabinet) where you can put as much as 10 vinyls (IIRC, but definitely more than 5) stacked up and they'll all play continuously after each other (of course without flipping for Side B..hehe). Do they make those now? Been looking and researching and can't see any.


Many, many (maybe even most) turntables in the 70's and earlier were "record changers".  Brands included Dual, Fisher, Garrard, PE, and many more.  I used to have a Fisher that had two spindles - a short one for playing records singly, and a tall one when used as a changer.

Like many convenience features, in any field, the extra parts and relative complexity of changers had their down side.  Simpler manual turntables rose up stronger, as cost effective quality.

 

Also, for "serious" listening, the rake angle of the stylus could only be correct for one of the records in your stack.  That was another compromise, but most didn't mind when a stack of records could play for the duration of typical party.

contact grado.  It's a minor repair.

I realized yesterday that I have been listening to EVERYTHING on 1 to 3 bars of volume (out of 16). SR80e is the most efficient pair I have ever owned. I'd even say they are too efficient.
