2003 will be Grado's 50th anniversary. Does anyone know if there'll be special product (limited edition or not) coming out?

Do you have special connections? I'm hoping you do.

I heard they're coming out with the HP-2000, a gunmetal black version of the HP-1000 with a comfortable redesigned headband.

...


Well, you have to dream.

I bet they will do something fancy, like ship their cans in boxes that have 50th aniversery writen on them in block type.

Hmm, so they'll buy pizza hut boxes and put 50th anniversary on them with a sharpie?

They'll probably put a $10 circuit in a fancy wooden box, package it with a better 9V battery and call it the Grado RA-2. It'll be even neutraller and colorlesser.

Haha, it's only funny because it's true. But, hey, at least their headphones sound good.

I bet John Grado knows the HP-1000's are better headphones than his current offerings, too! I would bet that his HP-1's are on his ears and his RS-1's in the closet. Well, maybe this isn't true. But imagine how much better Grado would be doing if the HP-1000 or a variation of it were being currently produced. Blah! They should reissue it, dammit!! Because I want one for my Melos!

Despite what many of you think, John Grado had a big part in the production of the HP-1000. In fact, he hand assembled every single one of them. So if he says the RS-1 is better, I'd have to think he really believes that.

I'm anxiously anticipating hearing Hirsch's RS-1 in a few weeks. For some reason, I have a feeling I might like it better (at least in some ways) than my HP-2.

No, not at all. But John Grado will be hosting our NYC Head-Fi meeting and you know I'll pose the question

If you do turn out liking the RS-1 more than you HP-2 and wish to sell it, send me a PM and I will give you a good price for them.
