There’s an old saying that you’re only as strong as your weakest link. It’s true, in a system of interconnecting pieces one component lagging behind throws the whole thing off. So, if you’re gonna invest in expensive audio equipment, rare b-sides, and cables that cost more than your buddy’s whole set up, it’s not the time to skimp on your headphone choice. When you hook up a pair of Grado RS1i Reference Series Headphones it’ll sound like you just reunited Pink Floyd and jammed them in your ear canal. The tonal quality you get with a pair of RS1i’s will make you feel like you’re discovering music for the very first time. The open-air design and upgraded technology put these Grado’s in the upper echelon of the headphone world. Plus, just like Ron Burgundy, the rich mahogany will make you kind of a big deal.
