I will repeat again what I said earlier in the string and that boils down to the new out of the box SR60e sounded smoother and more refined than my many hours burned in SR60i, not at all brighter but better detail nonetheless. I should have a pair of PS500e in a month or two and can report thaen how it compares to my much listened to and liked PS500 which I have had for about two years.
I will also be getting an opportunity to listen to the PS1000e along the way in the not too distant future. Will report back then on my perceptions after listening.
Wow, that'll be an interesting comparison: an $80 pair vs a $1700 pair.
Something tells me the 60e will fare extremely well.
I'm loving these preliminary reviews. Thanks again everyone--keep up the fine work.
Sadly, as a result of these reviews, I am now considering 4 grados not just 1: 60, 80, ms1, 225.
Shoot for the 225 if you can swing it. One of Grado's sweet spots.
