Grado RS2e Reference Series Headphones


Grado RS2e Reference Series Headphones



The RS2i vented diaphram, wooden air chamber headphones from Grado are a truly special product. Featuring a new species of handcrafted Mahogany earpieces made using an intricate curing process; Grado has been able to optimize the tonal quality in an entirely new way. The RS2 is considerably smoother sounding than Grado’s lower-end models, and this basis alone justifies the price differential. The RS2 delivers the original enthusiasm and kinetic energy inside music performance in spades. Dynamic nuances are unfolded with speed and conviction. There is glorious charisma in the midrange, which was voiced on the lively side of reality, assisted by a slight upper midrange-presence region emphasis. The combined effect was to catapult musical lines forward. The RS2i is the little brother of the RS1i. It has an upgraded driver and a new 8 conductor cable design. The characteristics of the RS2i remain the same as its distinguished big brother, with the new species of hand crafted mahogany, but with a smaller wooden air chamber. Although a miniature version of the RS1i, the RS2i still maintains an overall sound that is pure Grado, warm harmonic color, full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics and ultra smooth top end. These truly are an audiophiles dream.
