Excellent RS2e

Dinero57, Crutchfield

  • Summary: This is an excellent headphones. Sound quality is absolutely amazing, even my wife that doesn't listen to headphones said, "oh wow, it's so clear, the voices are so detailed that it feels like your in the concert". What I loved the most too is, it's so easy to drive.
  • Pros: Amazing sound quality & easy to drive.
  • Cons: Hurts my ear during long session. Cable is short & too thick.

  • Summary: Love the headphones. Use them for music, drumming, studio work, and of course leisure! They are suitable for all ! <br /> <br />
  • Cons: I am getting used to the ear piece , but I have big ears, that don't have normal folds, so i find sometimes they sit awkward on my ear... However it sounds this is my own CON haha, nevertheless they are still very comfortable.

  • Summary: My second pair of Grados. Fantastic sound quality, across volume levels. I listen mostly to classic rock, blues, etc. and have found myself rediscovering my favorite albums. Grado claims these are sonically neutral, and I agree.
  • Pros: Accurate sound quality. Hand-made (can't beat the smell of the leather and wood after opening the box!). Look great sitting in the stand on my desk.
  • Cons: Other reviews will say these are not the most comfortable headphones. This is true, but I did not experience any soreness after listening for a couple of hours. One small gripe: The cord is a little heavy. I know this is supposed to be a higher quality cord, but it seems to be slight overkill.

Grado RS2e

  • Summary: I've had these for a few weeks now and what can I say, compared to my SR-225e these are in a different class in sound stage and sound signature. The highs are so smooth and the bass is deeper and fuller than the SR-225e. .
  • Pros: One of the great things about these headphones is that they can be used with a portable DAP like a Fiio X1 or X3 and sound pretty good. These have a place in my collection of headphones for their unique sound signature and presentation. Other headphones that I currently have include Audeze LCD-...
  • Cons: Bad points for this headphone is the cable is a little too short for how my listening area is setup and its also too heavy for such a light headphone. The other area that have people on the fence is the comfort of the ear pads, I find that if I place them with the top of the pad on the top of my...

Ruined other headphones for me

cperrey, Crutchfield

  • Summary: These are the best sounding headphones I've ever heard. They are amazing for strings and mid-tone instruments, really drawing them out. They have surprising bass kick but it is tight and not overpowering. Since getting them I find myself re-listening to music I own to see what really is there.
  • Pros: Great sound, warmth and presence. Surprising bass.
  • Cons: Fit might not be for everyone. Heavy cord is not as flexible as some might like.

Great warm smooth detailed sound

  • Summary: Cult following Grado's. Handmade in Brooklyn NY USA. Beautiful, detailed high resolution sound. Must be heard to be believed. Be sure to give them several hours to break in, as the sound will bloom and warm up with time.
  • Pros: The sound!
  • Cons: The cord is way too short - it's 6 feet long at best.

  • Summary: Absolutely fabulous open-back headphones. Excellent reproduction of sounds across the whole frequency range when driven by a competent amp. A good step up from the SR80 I used previously.
