    That's what I think the x is going to be. If that is the case then I will not need to sell my RS2e to upgrade.

    What would be interesting, when the time comes, will be to compare apples to apples. I'm happy with my RS2e...but I can't wait to read a comparison between the RS2e and the RS2x.

    I hope it is better than what they offered with the HF3. That cable was too stiff and unwieldy.

    What does that mean? What I do see is that it has white stitching, which is something that Grado has been doing recently.

    The button on the headphone (pictured in your link) has an X. That would be one hell of a typo.

    Is this the future Grado lineup? https://gradolabs.com/headphone-reviews

    IMO, all Grado models have this musicality. The Hemp is great, but the RS1i is supposed to be one of the best (from what I've read since I have never heard one). I think it is just trendy to praise the Hemp...just like it became all the rage to crap all over Grado around five years ago...

    Go for the RS1i. If you don't like it you can sell it to me for 300 euros. :sunglasses: On the other hand, you will own the "cool" new Grado (and give your friends envy) if you go for the Hemp. But seriously, I don't think you can go wrong with either model. You will enjoy either one.

    Ha...same thing here...love my RS2e, but I return to my GH2 with G pads.

    Yes Honestly, I have not purchased any pads that absolutely sucked. Sure, some sound better than others, but I never purchased one that destroyed the Grado sound. My favorite pad is the stock L pad with covers to reduce the itchy ear problem I get using them. The G pads are my second...

    Nope. The size and color will remain exactly the same. I still have my set (washed many times), which I purchased eons ago. Yeah, they look good on any of the SR models.

    My 414 pads outlived my L pads (the stock pads), which disintegrated years ago. The 414 sound great and are really comfortable. The only reason I don't use them is the horrible color. That bright yellow used to work with the SR series, but it sucks with my current Grado models. Yes, it...

    I think so. The MS2i is no slouch...but the Hemp is just better.

    So we are shifting the argument to whether I care or not? Okay. No, I don't give a schiit about what you think about me. I replied to your post because you are being a rude to other members who post in this thread. I do care about that. It's so nice and calm in the Grado thread until...

    I've been to Dan Clark's (Mr. Speakers) shop here in San Diego. He was showing me around the place when we walked into a room full of drivers hanging there playing pink noise. I asked Dan what that was all about and he informed me that it was the "burn-in room". Was he peddling snake oil...

    The rule of the diminishing returns in audio is apparently also applicable to pads. :sunglasses:

    There is a headband sold on amazon which has extra padding and is really soft (made out of sheepskin). Accessory House is the brand...but they are out of stock at the moment.

    Maybe he is hoping that you will convince him to buy a GH2...therefore saving a lot of coin.

    I thought they were the normal tvvj pads. I'm pretty sure that when I bought them they didn't offer the deluxe version. The pads on the Hemp are identical to the ones I purchased years ago from tvvj. Perhaps normal and deluxe ttvj pads are identical. There has been so much talk about...

    I also compared them to the ttvj pads I own. I thought they were the normal pads, but perhaps I ordered the deluxe pads. Who knows...it was years ago.

    Did you get the Shipobo leather headband? If so, can you post another picture? I have never seen a good picture of that headband (the pictures on the Shipobo site are not that good).

    LOL. My impressions of the SR225i and the SR60i are from when they where in their stock (plastic cups) form. The SR225i sounded more like an RS model before I transplanted the drivers to the wood cups. The SR60i was miles away from the RS models before and after the transplant. Venting the...

    I own an SR60i and the SR225i (both in wood housings now). They seemed very different to me before they were modded (the SR60i drivers are now vented). The SR225i had more mid bass and sub-bass (both quantity and quality). The SR225i sounds more like an RS model (or limited edition) than...
