    Wow! WHAT a tricked out RS1i. Hard to find in their native form, yours is more rare due to the special cable Andy shiny gimbals. Best wishes with them!

    I find the difference between cheap and quality expensive cabling makes a huge difference in audio quality. When setting up a hi-fi, and when connecting my Chord Mojo to an amplifier.
     
    Did you get a sonic boost with this cable, or anything you noted different?

    Thanks.

    To be honest at the time of the cable upgrade I never really noticed a "wow" sonic boost. But what I can say is that when I took them along as a reference pair when I was considering adding to my collection the GS1000 and or the GH1. I walked out with just my RS1i's been disappointed with what I heard from the GS1000/GH1.
    The only Grado that even came close in my mind was the PS1000i. If it was not for the price I would have got it. :)
     
    I even compared it to the RS1e and was surprised by the Superior sound coming out of my headphones. What makes my RS1i stand out for me in the lovely bass I get out of them. In fact I would say it's the best bass I have ever heard on any headphone. I'm obviously no "expert" in the matter, far from it actually, but that's my take on it.

    SirBenn21,

    Lovely rs1i's and I share your sentiments on RS1i's.
    Would never sell mine either and they are the best looking Grado's IMHO.

    Could you please share cable details?

    The very good mod was done by Twisted Cables in Brisbane Australia.

    I concur sir. The timbre of the bass in my RS1i's is the best I've heard in any Grado except for the PS1K's.

    If I could describe the bass quality in one word it would be... beautiful.
