As I agree with you on the most widely thought out concept of higher price is better, there are several instances where a headphone have been worse than its previous family.
 
HD650 for great example. Many say it was below HD600.
 
Same with RS-1 to RS-2.

This poll can't work.   :)
 
You should ask for people to vote who have only heard a majority of these themselves.  No vote from people who "guess".  :-D
 
I personally have either A/B'ed or owned, the 60i up through the 325is, and then both the MS1i and MS2i.
 
I really like both the 225i and the MS2i, but I voted for the MS2i.  But I think the 225 is the better value.
 
And ... you should have had the HF1 and HF2 as choices.

RS1 is not the predecessor of RS2 but the higher model of the same product line.

Voting lists will always be unsuitable for the general public.
 
Maybe I should have said, "Best "Available" Grado Headphone". And I'm sorry for not putting up the gs1000 or ps1000, its the idea that those are the obvious best so why list them?

That list is totally incomplete. 
 

I think he was referring to the sound. Quite a few people prefer the sound of the RS2 to the RS1, just like the HD600 VS the HD650. 


That makes sense!

There are quite a few missing candidates even if you want to make it into "The best of currently available Grados" contest.
Anyways, I can't vote since I have not heard most of the headphones on this list. :frowning2:
