That is a substantial difference, it is more than a coil change.

Not clear from the photo which those are but I'm supposing PS1ke, GS1ke, or RS1e. There's no confirmation that the others are larger. Quite the opposite.

All, however, have been redesigned and John called it, "a noticeable difference, not a subtle difference."

Alot of people were saying the RS1e's drivers were the same size with added plastic around them - clearly that is not the case...

Oh, I took that as settled already. But only for those I listed.

I might have missed the post(s) where it was settled then. Yes, but as you said all headphones underwent major driver changes, even if not all in size. I'm still going to get 325es, maybe stretch the budget for an RS1e...which i'm sure I'll resell to buy an sr325e anyhow... Food for thought.

That is a big size difference, but unless I missed something,  it doesn't say wich headphones these drivers are for.

Double post is understandable, but triple post? Sheesh!biggrin.gif

Oh man triple postsI where's my head at, please forgive me guys, I guess it's time for my meds.

 

I may as well take this opportunity to say something that occured to me today. Since they're only a few months old, I'm wondering if the Bushmills have the new e serie red drivers.

Only the RS1e, the GS1000e, and the PS1000e have 50mm (46mm if you don't count the plastic) drivers, though they may or may not be unique from each other.

 

Out of those three, the RS1e switched from a 1/4" plug to a 1/8" plug.

Sorry my meds haven't kiked in yet, so what you're saying is that these pictrues are from the ''old'' RS1i, GS1000i, and PS1000, vs the new e series.

I had wondered the same thing and emailed Grado Labs... They replied and said that the Bushmills did not use the new e-series drivers.

I have to admit that I'm a bit confused when it comes to Grado's new e series. Also I have learned over the years that newer, does not always mean better, it does however usually mean different, and it's not a given that people will automatically prefer the new model's sound signature.

 

I for one, will wait untill I can audition the new PS1000e, before selling my ''old'' PS1000, and in the mean time, I'm going to keep an eye out for the reviews that will start poping up, especially those from Head-Fi members who's opinion I trust, like Macedoniam Hero's.

I have taken his advice a few times and have always come away with a smile on my face  :smile:

 

Thanks fellas! :smile:

 

Between the PS1000 and PS1000e, both sound like well, the PS1000; make no mistake about it. Soundwise, the imaging was improved on the "e" version to the point where it's pushing my HD800s for sound stage dynamic king. Bass seems a bit deeper on my FR sweeps with less distortion for the sub-bass. Hard to say whether it was worth the upgrade for me as both are great cans...I suppose my ears are happy that I did it; while my wallet not so much. 

 

Funny, I have the first PS1000e's sold in Canada; reminds me of being the first to own the beyer T1s in the Great White North.

Here are a couple of pictures of the New Grado e series drivers. The larger ones are the e series! We are offering free shipping on all Grado e series headphones!

Most excellent Todd...that is that. Now we can start debating on how they sound.
