Well worth the price!

  • Summary: This product lives-up to it's description. Comfortable and the sound is amazing. The "warmth" of the effect form the wood really supports listening to classical music.
  • Pros: Quality of sound, -- warm, open, and range.
  • Cons: Just a tad-bit more padding under leather headband would be good!

  • Conclusion: I know that most people dont understand the true value of a GOOD pair of headphones. Unfortunately, this whole digital era has has seriously tarnished the value of "Real Audio".

Grado RS1e Headphones

  • Summary: Theses are the most expensive head phones I've ever bought but they are also the best. I listen mainly to classic and indie rock and I don't think you can find a better phone for those genres. Excellent bass and in your face musical clarity.

Grado RS1e Headphones

  • Summary: I owned some Grados in the past and had big expectations from this one. First thing you notice is that it is made from beautiful mahogany wood, more metal is used compared to plastic on lower models and have deeper wooden cups compared to RS-2i or SR-325i.

Grado RS1e Headphones

  • Summary: These headphones will bring out all the lost detail you never heard from your songs; detail even $300 range headphones miss out on. I recommend buying these if you have the money for them! You will NOT regret this purchase.

Grado RS1e Headphones

Chris, earphone solutions
9 November 2009
  • Summary: These are some of the most dynamic headphones around; dipping them in the goo of any genre will see them come out practically unscathed, although perhaps with a few blemishes. With a very natural (but not especially neutral) sound, the RS1 provides a very euphonic sound without skimping on the...

  • Summary: I've tried the Rs-1 thanks to a friend. I have to say that i loved this headphone. I've tried it with flat pads. They have a warm, natural, full bodied and very musical sound. The mids are magical. They let flow the music and the emotions in a way that no other headphones I've heard can do.

  • Summary: The current top of the John Grado line exemplifies what he has made the Grado name all about: hard hitting bass and exciting forward midrange, at the expense of extension, smoothness, build quality, and comfort.

Grado Rs 1

  • Summary: Grado RS-1 vs. Sennheider HD650 I absolutely love these headphones. I had a pair of Sennheiser HD650's, which are good cans, but since I'm using these to mix with ProTools, I needed a flat response, evenly balanced sound with little or no coloration.
  • Pros: none,... ok, they're rather pricey, but you do get what you pay for
  • Cons: none,... ok, they''re rather pricey, but you do get what you pay for

  • Summary: Had these RS1 on loan from a friend and this is really a jaw opener. The transparency, details, bass impact and tightness, everything in one whole (expensive) package. Sounds like Grado, very upfront and amazingly it is able to really emphasis on the main equipment (or vocal).
