So im thinking about purchasing some MS-1's and i'm just wondering if anyone has had any hands on experience with the 'improved' version. If so, what are the differences between the two and is it worth the extra 10$?

I checked the Alessandro homepage and couldn't find the "improved" version. Where did you find it?

If the improvements are anywhere near the improvements on the Grados (more bass, more soundstage), then I'd say yes, it's worth it.

Since the MS1 is based on the SR80, then the improvements found on the SR80i will be found (and maybe improved some more) in the improved MS1.

Okay so I just got off of skype with an Alessandro rep and the "improved" versions are the sr125i drivers but with the Alessandro modifications. Purchasing a pair as we speak.
