If you can afford the GS1Ke's I'd get those. My $.02 only.

so maybe a month from now ?

So I've had my 325e's for a few days now, and I can say that the treble is a lot more tamed than the 325i (listened to it a few years ago). Today I received a pair of G-Cushions from Ear Zonk (http://www.earzonk.com/). I have to say that using these cushions have greatly made listening to the 325e a lot more enjoyable for me! Increased sound stage, while still having excellent bass impact, I can't wait to hear how these sound by the end of the month.For anyone curious about getting the 325e, I would highly recommend trying the G-Cush, I think you'll really enjoy it.

Dude, no kidding!  I'm first on the list, but so far no information about when they will get here.  I have to be out of town for a day or two next week, so I might email Todd and see if I can be later in the list.

I missed the chance to get a new pair of PS500's for $365 yesterday by about an hour. Several dealers are putting their 2nd gen's on sale between 25-40% off. the same dealer is selling new SR60i's for $47. But in a way I'm glad I missed it because I really want a pair of PS500e's if the improvements are anything like what has been described here. Plus having heard first hand the differences because the SR225i and SR225e, I can only imagine how good the PS500e sound.

do you mind telling me a little bit more on that...?

 

i have bowl pads. i like comfy pads wayyy better not for the sound, but for comfort. it's extremely more comfortable for 10 12 hours listening sessions...

 

what's wrong with sr80i with its stock comfy pads...? compare to the sr60i on your experience...?

This is awesome.

 

I always thought the 2nd-generation "i" series was a bit of a mail-in. How could you tell the difference between a RS2/RS1 (buttonless version) and an RS2i/RS1i? Or a GS1000 and a GS1000i? Cosmetically, they looked exactly the same. Also, while some could hear an audible difference between the 1st and 2nd generations (I could differentiate between the SR225 and the SR225i), others could not. But now, every headphone in the e series is distinct from the older generations, not only internally, but cosmetically as well.

 

Can't wait to demo the RS1e and the GS1000e. One of those may just be my next headphone.

 

I wonder how much the late John Chapais (former chief engineer of Grado who passed away in 2012) had a hand in the e series. Would he have allowed the RS1e to have a 1/8" plug?

When I tried out the various Grado headphones last week, I noticed a definite difference between the 60i and 80i—greater than between more expensive models, I think. I would describe the 80i sound as fuller and deeper, not “bright.” It seemed to me that the notable differences were among the plastic, aluminium, and mahogany bodies. The aluminium ones seemed to produce a sharper, more exact sound, which I suppose is what people mean by “bright.” If you like the 60’s, there is no reason to think you won’t like the 80’s.

BTW, I recall reading a suggestion that one fasten a black cable tie over the cables just outside the ear cups, to prevent pushing in on the connectors. Having read your post, I think I will probably do that.
