Slightly over-priced but delivers signature Grado sound with neutral tone
The Grado RS1i and Grado RS2i are fairly similar headphones; I would compare their likeness to the last generation Denon AH-D5000/D7000 lineup. The RS2is are warmer, with a strong low and mid section, while the RS1is offer stronger overall clarity while still being enjoyable to Grado fans. There are some things about Grado headphones overall that I am not fond of, including, the Y-splitter in the headphone cable (can compromise integrity over time); the resilience of the grille paint; and general construction when compared with other comparable headphones. That said, Grado was one of the brands that turned me onto Head-Fi and I will always appreciate the unique sound that such an open headphone can deliver. Good for people who prefer more of a neutral, balanced sound; not as great for people who really want a punchy signature. Read full review

RS-1 SRS-325 taste test
I'm a musician,and sometimes the sheer concept of a product is enough to make me take a chance on buying a product vie never tried. Such is the case with the RS1's. I had heard the grado 325s in a store and was extremely impressed....so I waited for the right price on Ebay. At the same time that I got the best price, a pair of RS1s popped up for a very good price. The whole concept of the wood and large chamber,sounded awesome. The critical acclaim on the Internet is unquestionable. Were they right for me? I would just have to see for myself...... I tested them,first on a Harry con nick disk with big band and strings....the strings were unmistakingly sublime....instant excitement....both pairs sounded great,but the RS1s were just the ultimate mood. Next I watched the Matrix....both sets were amazing but different...... Just plainly the 325s shimmer and the Rs1s create a mood...... Based on this test, I wish I had both! But I could not spend that much money,so the RS1s were the choice for me....... As a footnote ...these are the old model and not the new RS1i Read full review

One of the Top headphones produced in the world today!
One of the Top headphones produced in the world today! I personal own a sennheiser HD650, a IEM shure SE535 now and many other good headphoned before. No mention all the Amps to combine with these headphone. But the Grado RS1i is the best one for the pop/jazz/R&B/Rock music. The HD650 do better at the Classic music. If you are a pop/jazz/R&B/Rock guy, you will be never wrong with the RS1i. Just check out other review at head-fi and you will get what I mean.

Build quality is great.Sound is excellent, but if you want to take full advantage you need a good source or headphone amp.With prolonged use they don't fatique the user as sound is excellent and they are light. I bought them as I have read so many good professional reviews about them. Definatelly reference standard.Highly recammended.
