I have the SR325x and RS2x they are not similar at all.Thank you for the advice, unfortunately at the moment the RS1X is sold at a price that is too high here in Italy, while I would be able to get the RS2X at a price consistent with the US market.
One more question: can an SR325X and a Hemp with L pad sound similar to an RS2X?
The L pads of the SR225 that I owned in the past, despite the pain they caused me after about 1 hour, they allowed me to enjoy an excellent headstage, while the S and F pads perhaps improve the sound balance but in my opinion they kill the headstage.
For what you are describing the RS2x is good, but very different from RS2e
Personally I really enjoy the RS2x much more than RS2e
RS2x is just so easy to listen to in most situations
