    Beyerdynamic T1 or Grado Rs1i for rock/metal?

    Hey guys. So, i'm shopping for a new set of headphones and I came across the Grado RS1i and the Beyerdynamic T1. I heard good things about the Grado's being good for rock, especially the RS1i. However, i'm afraid this headphone will get tired on my ears after 3 hours due to its coloration and...

    Hi Guys and Gals   I am looking for advice from Grado rs1i owners on what amp to pair them with, I am leaning towards tubes at this stage as I like the sound but don't want to spend silly money as I already have a bad 2 channel habit.   So in short, what are you grado rs1i's using with...

    Help! Where can I audition sennheiser HD700 or RS1i?

    I am seriously considering buying sennheiser HD700 or Grado RS1i. In order to make a choice I want to audition them first but as an international student I have no idea where can I do so. I live in Worcester which is near Boston. Does anyone know whether there is any audiophile store which...

    RS1i vs. PS500 vs. MS Pro

    I am merely posting this thread to get opinions about these three headphones - the RS1i, the PS500, and the MS Pro. All of them are within the same price range, and all are Grado-like in some form or another. Yet, all of them have different sounds. Some background about myself - I currently...

    What Would Be a Good Compliment to A Grado RS1i

    What would be a good compliment to a Grado RS1i.   I would like something really different and would like to stay around the $200 mark.   I would like some open and closed headphone choices, if possible.   I listen to mostly rock and classic rock.     These are the cans that I...

    RS1i or MS Pro for metal - Decisions...

    I have been looking for a used RS1i recently for my metal purposes, however I have had a couple of people saying the MS Pro is also worth considering. I do not mind bright headphones or a warm presentation. I own the SR60i's and I really like them but wish for more detail and better bass. I like...

    Ultrasone Edition 8 too much treble? Will an amp dramatically change the sound profile?

    I recently bought a pair of the Ultrasone Edition 8s. I also bought the Woo Audio WA7 but it's backordered so I haven't received it yet. For now I'm listening to the Ultrasone's plugged directly into my Macbook Air.   I'm finding that the sound has far too much treble for my taste. The...

    Grado RS1i or PS500 with the Pan Am headphone amp

    I am in the market for a higher end pair of Grados and a headphone amp. Currently I have a pair of 225is that I plan to sell. After a couple years with the 225is i have definitely become a fan of Grado's but I would like to upgrade and have something a little less bright. I listen to a lot of...

    Frequency response graph request for Grado RS1i?

    I have the Grado SR125 FR graph from your site as well as the new SR125i FR graph that has been recently put up , undoubtedly shows some change in the sound signature. The SR125i as far as I know, is the only new FR graph while all the other models such as the SR60i,SR225i,SR325i etc still use...

    Pairing RS1i with PC Source

    After owning, and neglecting a set of KRK Rokit 6s for a while - I finally decided that if 99% of my home audio was done via headphones, I might as well invest in the best sound I could afford. I picked up some Grado RS1i's after auditioning a few in that price range; now I have the somewhat...

    Grado RS1i or PS500?

    Hey guys, I'm scheduled for Lasik surgery, which means I'm getting back into the headphone world. I used to own a pair of RS1i's which I loved, but due to the pressure, my ears pressed against the legs of my glasses and I couldn't listen to them for more than 30 minutes without experiencing...

    Grado RS-1i for Extreme Metal?

    I've been looking through a lot of best headphone threads and it seems that the RS-1i are the best choice for metal. I listen to a lot of 80s thrash, 80-90s death metal and third wave black metal. I also listen to other metal subgenres like heavy metal, doom metal and other music genres such as...

    To Cable Upgrade or Not, That is the question (RS1i)

    I'm divided between an upgrade or not. I can't seem to make up my mind, I need some help.   I feel that I need something more from my RS1i's. Though I don't know exactly what (Yes, vague, I know).     I've been trying to find and read as many reviews as I could about cable upgrades...

    RS1i is finally within my budget ...

    This sucks - I have the money in the bank, and the local distributor has dropped the asking price by about 300 bucks on what they were 12 months ago. Still not a cheap headphone, but I cant think of anything else that comes close for 680 AUD in the era of the T1 and various orthos, all well over...

    I figured out how to simulate an RS-2i with an RS-1i...

    I have been playing around and noticed that if you have an iPod Classic with the RS1i and engage the "Bass Reducer" setting in the EQ option then you have a sound that is remarkably close to that of the RS-2i.  More treble detail comes forward which can be handy for some songs.   I just...
