  • Summary: These are very fun headphones. Nice bass and highs, a smooth midrange. However, they lack the detail of other headphones in its price range. This makes them great for rock. The bass is tight, the presentation is forward -- these will get your toes tapping. These are warm and rich sounding. They don't get a lot of good words, but I think that's unfortunate. They really are my ultimate rock headphone.

  • Summary: While I have tried most of the Grado range, in some way or another I found many of the higher end models too fatiguing after hours of listening for one reason or another. The best thing about the RS2s are the relaxed highs (relative to the RS-1s and SR-325s) and the just about perfect-for-my-money midrange. I can listen to these cans for hours on end and even found myself sleeping in a recliner with them on.

  • Summary: I have owned these headphones for a year now, and enjoy them occationally, though much more at first. I have found out since that the sound really isn;t for me, however, I am not going to bash them. These are GREAT headphones. pretty good value for the money, but in my opinion not as good of a value for pure performance as the sennehiser hd 650/600/580 lineage. They are colored somewhat but not destructively.

  • Summary: After reading the other reviews I expected the RS2's to hurt. When I put them on I realized that the only uncomfortable part of these cans is the pads. I used the pads from my SR125's and now the RS2's are comfortable. The sound that this headphone produces is amazing. Now music has a new dynamic range. All it takes is one listen from these headphones and you have to own a pair.

  • Summary: I purchased the Grado RS2 phones expecting them to hurt my ears. After weeks of use, I find I have no comfort issues with my RS2's whatsoever. And I'm one of those people who finds it very painful to have anything pushing on, over, or especially in my ear(like canal phones). No problems here. I comes down to this: people have differen't sized ears. Mine are normal to small sized and fit inside the RS2 earpieces nicely. *****Big ears don't fit!....

  • Summary: I have bought neither the RS1 nor the RS2 yet, but listening to them (classical music & jazz) using an iPod, with Apple lossless files, and a Grado headphone amp, I was struck by how much better the RS1 was compared to the RS2. Anyone considering the use of such sound sources should check the RS1 out before committing to the RS2. If you splash out this kind of money, you might as well do it right...

  • Summary: Look, I know I'm stepping into the lion's mouth with this one, but these headphones just aren't comfortible enough to be considered spectacular. OBVIOUSLY the sound is great, but a feature that is almost important as sound, when it comes to headphones, is comfort. After all, music is meant to be listened to through speakers, so if you're willing to strap those speakers onto your head, you'd better be able to deal with them on your head for an extended period of time.

  • Summary: By paying $500, it may seem like you should get the top of the line of a companies headphone. With the Grado RS-2, you nearly do. The RS-1 sells for $200 more but the difference is minimal. Most people who listen to them side by side would probably choose to save the extra money......unless money is no object. These headphones are classy from the getgo. They arrive in a wooden box. They are made of real mahogony wood.
