  • Summary: I love my MS1i's, they sound amazin, after I got used to it are quite comfortable and just sound beautifully open. The sound is quite flat and in turn is quite good for an amateur music producer like me, my dad's an expert on mastering and such and he says my mixes sound quite good. The cable has an y-split, which isn't too bad, but the cable itself after it splits is twisty and annoying and I had to replace it.
  • Pros: Open design, overal pretty flat sound, lightweight, great sound, very moddable
  • Cons: Somewhat fragile, leaks sound (obviously), y-split cable isn't great, initially uncomfortable

  • Summary: I love these for when I want to enjoy my music, especially for rock.  Added the L-Cush pads on mine, which I find opens them up a bit more and improves comfort as well.
  • Pros: AMAZING SOUND QUALITY (especially for rock)

  • Summary: At first (after unboxing), they sounded not so good. Too bright sound and lot of sizzle. since 20 hours burned, it sounded better, larger soundstage, less sizzle but is still offensive to ears. now it's 30 hours burned. its sound goes better and better but is still too bright   The pads are always irritating my ears. If put them on long enough(20 min), it wont be irritating.
  • Pros: Bright and clear sound, non-overpower bass
  • Cons: sounds Sizzle when playing MP3, uncomfortable

  • Summary: They were ok at first, I enjoyed the added detail as they were my first good pair of phones. But they got VERY uncomfortable VERY quickly. Not just physically but audibly as well. very fatiguing.  Just got Sony 7506's and they are better in every way, comfortable, easier to drive, quieter background noise, better detail. better dynamics, and I can listen for hours comfortably.  I've been using a dac port pro for both sets. for 10-15 bucks more go sony.
  • Pros: good detail
  • Cons: Uncomfortable, Open=Leaks=Quiet and noisy depending on room noise.

  • Summary: These were my first ever "High end" headphones. I had to decide between these, the SR60, or the SR80. I decided to go with these as they were the same price of the SR80, but most people claimed for them to sound like the SR 125.  First listen was slightly disappointing. I overestimated the sound quality, coming from Bose AE2's. However, given several, maybe 50 hours of burn in, these cans really opened up.
  • Pros: Sound quality (Subjective), design, ability to mod easily
  • Cons: Standard comfy pads causes ear fatigue within an hour, Not as portable, treble may be too sibilant for some people

  • Summary: One of my favorite headphones period.  This side of the 225i's, there really is no reason to buy any Grados, the MS1's sound better and costs much less.
  • Pros: Lovely rich warm sound while retaining that bit of Gradoness
  • Cons: For the price, none. Well ok comfort is never going to be a Grado selling point.

  • Summary: These are the new version of the Alessandro MS-1 with the "i" in the model name meaning "improved". The main differences are a new thick cable and the size of the housing has been increased as well as the drivers being made more rigid. What this all does to the sound I'm not qualified to say, as I haven't heard the regular MS-1. However, I can say that the MS-1i is a rompingly good headphone. Sound: The bass on these headphones isn't really stellar.
