Oh man, it has been a while since I have had decent enough internet to get on this site. How is everyone doing? The MS2i's are on my head in Reykjavik at the moment, this town is pretty cool. Soooooo, contrary to what I believed at first, food at the supermarket is cheaper here than in Ontario/Quebec... I am still shocked...

L[M]S, glad your back in some assemblance of civilisation. Reykjavik is said to be a real treasure and almost entirely heated and powered by geo-thermal steam. Is this true? My friend who's been there says they have great bars and nightclubs. Enjoy yourself!

Has someone tried the RS2e?  I heard they sound almost identical to the RS1i, is that true?


I have a late model RS2is that have the red driver and 1/8" termination. I would guess they are an early 'e' model. However, I don't have anything to compare to, so curious to hear what others have to say. I'm enjoying them so far, trying to figure out a dac and amp to run with.

A friend of mine used to have the RS1i for around two years and sold them a few months before buying the RS2e, so he never had them both to compare but he said that based on his memory they sound very close to each other. If this be true, buying the RS2e would be a good choice.

All Grados have a similarity to each other.  The differences are subtle but real.
 
2 cents.

I had the old rs1 and rs2 at the same time. That comparison is similar to the gs1ki and ps1k. In that the respective higher model just does more of what the lesser model does. For example the rs1 sounds more balanced compared to the rs2. All frequencies are better represented and not hollowed out.

Up till that point, the rs2 had the best reproduction of guitars that I've heard.

Would the RS2 be less aggressive than the RS1? For metal I found the RS1 to be the best I've heard, but for Japanese pop it felt too bright with the L-cush, and too forward with the S-cush. Thinking of upgrading, but the RS1 is out of my budget!  D:
