Having thought hard about getting another set of headphones to go with my Grado60s, as I would like to have a pair at work, I decided to buy the Alessandro MS1's. I orderded the headphones on line from Alessandro and on the sixth day they arrived direct from the States $99 including postage, WOW what service. The main question are they as good or better than the Grados, answer, yes without a doubt. I did run them in continuously for 48hrs, as I had done with the 60s, then I did comparison listening with both and the overall sound with the MS1's is amazing in all departments. Please WHF team get hold of a pair and do a test comparison with the Grados and I think, no I know that we will have a new knig on the block, if you can't get hold of a pair I would be more than willing to lend you mine.
