The GS1000i has a beefier cable, the best grado for the money is an SR-80/RS-2/HF-2 and Grados do have a soundstage, just a much smaller and more forward one.

Very helpful answer.

the gs-1000i is supposed to have an improved driver and cable. I owned them for about 6 months and really loved them, but I've never heard a gs-1000 (non i)

GS1000i has better resolution on highs - this is what I perceived in direct comparison. Going back to the GS1000 reveals slight coloration of the old cable. The new one sounds more transparent.

In what way is the driver 'improved', or is it just marketing?

Usually it's improved, but mainly said for marketing.

GS1000i has a thicker cable, and a slightly improved driver.

Do you have the GS1000? Or are you just wondering?
