  • Summary: Wow...where to start, as I said this is MY Audio Nirvana. I suppose I should start by saying that I love the Grado sound, or at least I thought I did as I had only tried the sr80i and bought them and the 225i and was underwhelmed by the price to performance.
  • Pros: Great sound, Detailed, Resolution, Warm,
  • Cons: Pads are stiff right now.

  • Summary: *note this is actually a rs2e review* Shame head fi doesn't have a product page for it* Don't quote me, but I'm pretty sure this is the cheapest wood headphone you can buy (well maybe the OG rs2). And it's beautiful. But does it sound as good as it looks?
  • Pros: Gorgeous hand crafted design, transparent mids, intimate vocals, sparkly clear highs, deep detailed bass, very open sounding, easy to drive
  • Cons: Lacks bass impact, lacks subbass, grattles and looses control in higher volumes, uncomfortable

Grado RS 2 Headphones

AVguide
7 September 2008
  • Excerpt: The RS 2 is the number three model in Grado’s headphone lineup, but among headphone aficionados it enjoys a reputation for capturing much of the essential goodness of the very expensive, top-tier Grado models (the RS 1 and GS 1000), yet at a more accessible price.

  • Summary: I recently bought a pair of RS2e headphones, stepping up in price from the SR325e model with its lower spec and heavier aluminium casing. My reference point for comparison of the sound quality is against Sennheiser's HD650, which are a foundation of my headphone stable.
  • Pros: Intimacy, sharpness and clarity of sound - outstanding for acoustic and vocal music. Visually unique, an impactful pair of headphones.
  • Cons: Horribly uncomfortable ear pads. Sharpness of the sound is an acquired taste.

Grado RS-2

CNET

  • Conclusion: Avec le RS-2, Grado signe un casque d’une grande qualité. A tel point qu’il donnera toute sa mesure avec un système audio plutôt qu’un baladeur.
