  • Summary: See my previous review 12-12-2002 by Dairybeat. I have just sold the Grado's again for a little more than I paid for! I still stand by most what I said, but I found them lacking in the bottom end; the bass isn't rich enough for me and they're not great for comfort.

  • Summary: I cannot recommend these headphones. I own both the RS-1 and the Sennheiser HD-600. I drive them both with the Grado RA-1, using an AMC CD8b cd player as source. Also note: I listen mostly to symphonic, choral, piano, some techno, Eno and those he's produced, Hendrix, and other classic rock...

  • Summary: No wooden box, boooo. Fatter ear-pads, yaaaaaay. Still hurt after an hour or two. Full-range. Doesn't flutter or crack like the Senn-600s do. Very accurate mid-range. Awesome detail and coherency, better than any amplifier I have available. Works great with the Creek h'phone amps.

  • Summary: To all reviewers: What Grado pads are you using? There are 4 different types of pads Grado makes for their headphones, and each one changes the sound like night and day. I see a lot of comments about how the RS-1s sound dark, or how the Sennheiser HD-600s are brighter.

  • Summary: I reviewed these headphones fairly extensively for about 2 weeks. They are just not my cup of tea. I agree with the previous reveiw by Gary. I suppose some might like this sound - if you do, you'd probably describe it as warm, lush, and smooth.

  • Summary: I've owned these for about 8 months. As I have two systems and already owned the Senn HD600, I wanted something different for the other system. These are excellent sounding headphones, although I don't hear the detail in them that I hear in the Senn's.
