  • 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: 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.

Grado RS 2 Headphones

  • 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...
