Summary: Theses are the most expensive head phones I've ever bought but they are also the best. I listen mainly to classic and indie rock and I don't think you can find a better phone for those genres. Excellent bass and in your face musical clarity.
Summary: I owned some Grados in the past and had big expectations from this one. First thing you notice is that it is made from beautiful mahogany wood, more metal is used compared to plastic on lower models and have deeper wooden cups compared to RS-2i or SR-325i.
Summary: These headphones will bring out all the lost detail you never heard from your songs; detail even $300 range headphones miss out on. I recommend buying these if you have the money for them! You will NOT regret this purchase.
Summary: These are some of the most dynamic headphones around; dipping them in the goo of any genre will see them come out practically unscathed, although perhaps with a few blemishes.
With a very natural (but not especially neutral) sound, the RS1 provides a very euphonic sound without skimping on the...
Summary: The Grado RS1 is a reference for listening to classic music. In comparison to the AKG K701 (which is another reference headphone) the Grado sounds with more precise and intense sound (nearly brutally natural). The Akg K701 in comparison with the Grado sounds more soft and less stunning.
Summary: I own a SR125 and these blow those way out of the water. The sound is fuller and richer. The 125 sounds flat in comparison. The difference is huge. Definately worth buying if you have the cash.
Summary: I bought these to see how they compared to my Sennheiser HD-650's. The difference is remarkable.I do all my listening with headphones so I have gone thru about 5 difference kinds. These are amazing. Heavy choral parts(ie Bach B Minor Mass) are "sweet" not "edgy".
If you love music you need these!.
Summary: The current top of the John Grado line exemplifies what he has made the Grado name all about: hard hitting bass and exciting forward midrange, at the expense of extension, smoothness, build quality, and comfort.
