The Grado RS2e is the little brother of the RS1e, but is just as aesthetically pleasing. 'The e Series" utilizes Grado's 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 uses new advanced damping treatments that help control and dissipate resonances.The RS2e 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.

Word on the Street:
"... 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."
