Grado - RS2e Reference Headphones

The End Of Teenage Disillusionment

Leave your candy-colored cans in the toy chest and try a pair of proper headphones. Grado RS2e are hand-crafted from select Mahogany tone-woods, like a fine musical instrument. Our exclusive Series E curing process enhances the natural properties of the wood to produce rich, full-bodied vocals in a light-weight form factor. Put on Brian Eno’s 'Another Green World', close you eyes and dream as if you’ll live forever.

"... We not only felt every tremor and shudder of the gigantic plane, we heard even the most subtle details, such as the ice cubes rattling the passengers' plastic beverage cups. The combination of an engrossing film and an impressive set of headphones made it feel as though the RS-2s disappeared and the sound seemed to be coming from far outside the actual confines of the headphones."
- CNET, Steve Guttenburg

The RS2e is the little brother of the RS1e but is just as aesthetically pleasing, now utilizing our proprietary curing process that gives a new, lighter look. The RS2e has a 44mm driver and uses The e Series 8 conductor cable design. The hand-crafted mahogany utilizes new advanced damping treatments that help control and dissipate resonances.The RS2e still maintains an overall sound that is pure Grado, with warm harmonic colors, rich full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics, and an ultra-smooth top end. These truly are an audiophiles dream.

Great sounding

They are my first high quality headphones. I've read that amps make them sound better but not sure since they already sound amazing!

Superb Sound, Beautiful Build

As like all Grado headphones, you can expect a open, clean, and true to the recorded music soundstage. Gorgeous highs, mids, and accurate bass which is tight without any unnatural “boom” which is so common in lesser cans these days. I like my music to be as true to the source as possible and the RS2e’s provide exactly that. I’ve always used Klipsch for my floor standing speakers and Grado for headphones throughout the years from the 70’s to this day in various models and price points. The RS2e’s perform much better and are more accurate than many more expensive headphones I’ve given a listen to. Look no further than Grado, you will be amazed.
