Hello.
i was wondering if anyone on this forum has purchased products from http://www.alessandro-products.com/headphones.html ?

good or bad experiences?
i understand the music series one is a modified sr-125? and the series two should be a sr-225, thou even better!
how can they have these prices, with included worldwide shipping etc and still make money?


thank you.

Welcome to Head-Fi, and the search button (when working) can be a wonderful thing.


MS1=~125
MS2=~325
MSP=~RS1

Quite a few Alessandro fans here.

$299 including shipping to norway sounds great.



is the ms2 the ones in the middle, with aluminium?
are they better on the head than ms1?

maybe i can get alessandro to adjust the value on the shipment or else id get a +30% on them

Yes they are, they are the metal ones and the headband is upgraded from the MS1.

As far as shipping goes, you will have to talk to them about that, I have no clue.

They sound a lot better with a good amp and a high end source, but what doesn't? They however not not very forgiving of bad sources. I tried them on a very good portable (old metal sony) without an amp and they sounded bright, when I switch to a amp (Grado-RA1) they ease the brightness a bit but it wasn't until I then used them on a real source that they really came alive.

If you are only planing on using them with a sound card with no amp, then perhaps the MS-2 are just too much for you, and you might want to try the MS1 instead, which will sound without an amp but even better if you ever upgrade.

Yeah the ms-1 can really make an ipod groove.
Sure they like an amp, but don't need one to sing. I also prefer them with the flat pads.

Big difference, I would think. I think those two headphones are in a different league altogether.

I love my Alesandro MS1`s.
I had no issues with the shipping and the price makes them a steal.

These will sound ALOT better than your current headphones..

Are they really THAT good? I mean, I was planning to get a pair in the future anyway, but DAMN.

PayPal takes a percent, if a credit card is attached (checking accounts are free in at least the U.S.), from the seller. It doesn't cost you any more, unless the seller tacks on a percent fee since he/she loses a bit.

BTW, have the PPs and just got the MS1 a few weeks ago. Nice step up.
