I found the GS1000e a bit of a disappointment....even after 400 hours of use, though it continued to improve, it had a bit of turbines in the bass..sort of a one-note resonance that highlighted notes of nearby pitch.. It wasn’t bad enough (after 400 hours) to notice unless you compared to other over-ear Grados, but it was there in such comparisons.
I would much prefer the RS2e to the GS1000e. If you want the comfort of the over-ear Grado, try to find a used GS1000i, or spring for a GS2000e. They are both exquisite (as are the heavier PS1000 and PS2000e).
Hope this helps!
It helps a lot. Unless the RS2e's are a lot heavier or have a much heavier clamping factor than my old SR225's, they should work great for me. Thanks!
