I'm going back, listening to all my Queen... I'm mostly a metalhead, love the heavy screaming stuff, but I keep coming back to Queen. Freddy Mercury sounds so damn GOOD, and each step forward I take in audio reveals more detail and complexity in their songs.

Despite the aids and gayness (we've all got our hangups) ... Freddy Mercury and Queen are arguably some of the uber greatest RockGaWDS! of all time.

Timeless.

Queen made a truly important and Will-Live-Forever(tm) type contribution to the rock scene.

No wonder your digging them so...

S1rrah, you need to stop praising your Grado's so much...

You're starting to put thoughts into my head - an unfortunate yearning for RS2's .

Being a fan of sharing the wealth and all ... I'd gladly mail you my RS1's for a week long demo if I could part with them for that long (much less a day).

:-)

Too bad we all aren't closer in prox so as to have a meet of sorts.

They really are something special; I'm sure the RS2's are near indistinguishable in character and performance.

Funny thing is ... the value of the RS1's isn't so obvious as the value of cans like the Senn 580's ...

For instance, the 580's are immediately appreciated for the comfort and especially the bass slam advantage they have over the RS1's ... but it really ends there.

Whereas with the RS1's ... you have to listen at a reasonable volume level and suddenly you hear all this nuance and detail that's just RIGHT IN FRONT of you ... I mean ... like your surrounded by the players ... and it just hooks you. This is markedly different from the distant view imparted by the Senns.

I even prefer the Grados for movies, games and just TV watching. The positioning and detail will raise the hairs on your neck.

The RS1's are becoming more dear to me than my ...


... and believe me you ... that's something worth noting.

I'm two hours in to listening now and hope to be able to quit long enough to watch COPS or a movie or something before getting sucked back in to the sounds later this evening ...

...

(sorry about the off topic video but it was necessary to illustrate how great the RS1's are; cause that's the sickest board I've ever owned and if some measly headphones are going to make me question my affection for it ... then they gotta be some bad arse headphones! )

yay.

Apparently Gradoitis is fairly common, those that get into the lower grados just can't help but upgrade.

I ought to woody my SR225's and pretend that I have RS2's ;>.

I haven't listened to any 'woodied' grado SR225's, but I would have to say that the larger sounding chamber and the obviously warmer tone imparted by the wood ... WOULD have to be a noticeable improvement.

Do it (or ) ... just save up, sell the 225's and drop the change for some RS2's!

( As a certain bro at head-fi has said: "This is sickness." )

...

But such a sweet ailment ...

I agree completely. I'd say my most-listened to CD purchase to date was the 2-disc Queen platinum collection. Amazing artist - he actually had talent rather than good computer effects as has become so common on modern "pop" music.
