I tried these earbuds as shipped, with the medium gel tip, and was seriously unimpressed. The fit was comfortable but the sound was thin and reedy. I decided that maybe I should use the small gel tips, maybe get the buds further in, but no joy -- again the fit was comfortable but the sound was thin and reedy. I was thinking about sending the buds back but decided to try the large tips first, and this time I was seriously impressed. The sound was full and crisp. A newbie to high-end earbuds, I am amazed at the difference tip size makes. Even though the small and medium tips were not uncomfortable, it appears that size does matter to the overall quality of the experience. I love these earbuds now.

Grado is such a no-frills company that it's easy to notice several minor things that can be improved upon right after you open the box (By the way, the packaging is pretty nice by Grado standards.). For instance, at this price point, I would love to see detachable cords. The selection of ear tips is limited to three--small, medium and large silicon tips. A wider selection of tips, including some foam choices, would also be nice. Grado includes some replacement filters and rings, but not a word in the very short instruction sheet about how or when to change the filters. Sheesh! There is no tool to change the filters, or a tool to remove ear wax. No carrying case. It's about as basic as it gets.

But then, after securing a proper fit, which of course is crucially important for IEMs (I used Comply foam tips since none of the three included silicon tips fit me properly), and plugging them in to a quality music source, all negative thoughts vanished because the sound is incredible! I own Grado RS1i headphones, and they have somehow managed to replicate the amazing sound quality of those headphones into these little GR-10 IEMs. The sound is a little less airy and the soundstage isn't as wide (not really surprising since the RS1s are open-backed headphones) but in some ways there is more of a feeling of presence using the IEMs. I have no idea how they do it. But do it they do. These IEMs are expensive, but I think they are well worth it. Highly recommended.

I have long been an admirer of the Grado products. I have owned a number of Grado headphones and cartridges in the past, so I am no stranger to the "Grado sound". So when I read the reviews like "RS1 reproduced in in-ear monitors", I was intrigued. On the first listen, however, I was a bit surprised that the sound was not quite what I expected. To me, the "Grado sound" equates with the words like "lush", "smooth", "natural" (not necessarily neutral). Maybe they changed the sonic signature in RS1... I don't know. However, it doesn't matter - I am still giving it five stars. Read on.

I really liked the minimalist approach, except that I wish it came with the microphone. One thing I especially like (that has not been mentioned by others) is the cable, very light and elastic - not too stiff, but not too flabby - so it doesn't get tangled up! Design is simple and elegant.

As for the sound, it is surprisingly open, transparent, and detailed, which can sometimes give a false impression that bass is weak. But it's not. It's very tight bass with just about right quantity (I know this is a very subjective part in the frequency spectrum).

After a few days, however, I decided to find a way to dislike it, as an excuse to justify an upgrade to the ultimate $1000 earphones (with a microphone too). A while ago I had a chance to audition Shure SE846 and was mightily impressed, so I have long been thinking about buying the ultimate and be done. Then I had a chance to borrow Westone W40 ($499) for A/B comparison. If another $100 can give me a significant jump, I was going to settle for it and save $500. For the tests, Apple lossless tracks were played on Macbook Air using iTunes, played through the Meridian Explorer USB DAC with full upsampling up to 192kHz.

First up, I am a longtime unashamed admirer of "the Grado sound". My first encounter with Grado was when I was buying headphones and came across great reviews for the moderately priced SR80s. Having used Bose quiet comfort 15 headphones (that cost 3-fold that of the SR80s) for some time I was immediately impressed by the clarity of the SR80s. I was hearing things in my favorite music that I simply hadn't heard before. I found that I wanted to hear all of my music through the SR80s to find out what else I had been missing. Compared to the Bose, the SR80s brought what I can only describe as an exciting presence to the music. Gone was the Bose woofy bass and dull compressed midrange. Some say the SR80s don't have enough bass for their tastes, but this might be because people expect a lot of bass, but rarely get the tight realistic bass characteristic of Grado. A couple of years later I bought a pair of the expensive Grado RS1s. These are just amazing in sound. They have all of the presence of the SR80s, with more detail in the mids and highs, and unlimited tight low ends. THe sound stage or openness is greatly increased relative to the SR80s. However, while the traditional over the ear Grado headphones provide clear realistic exciting sound, they have two disadvantages, first they have an open design that leak a tinny sound into the room that can be annoying to those you share space with, second, they aren't designed for, nor work well for listening on the move.
Enter the GR10s. I purchased a pair and have been using them for about six months now. I run them from a Fiio X3 and use WAV FLAC or other lossless formats. The pairing of an excellent source and the GR10s provides superb sound.
