The RS2e is the little brother of the RS1e. The RS2e has an upgraded driver and the new 8 conductor cable design. The characteristics of the RS2e remain the same as its distinguished big brother, with the new species of hand crafted mahogany, but with a smaller wooden air chamber. Although a miniature version of the RS1e, the RS2e still maintains an overall sound that is pure Grado, warm harmonic color, full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics and ultra smooth top end. Grado's famous retro styling with a gorgeous Mahogany look make these truly an audiophile's dream.

Reviewer: Bruce Craft from Evans, GA United States  
Thank you for the recommendation of this set. It is indeed a great upgrade from my SR80 Grado headphones.

Unbelievable sound May 12, 2017
Reviewer: Maya Walker from Dunbarton, NH United States  
I read all the reviews and was still confused about which Grado to buy. I finally chose the RS2e because numerous people said they preferred it over its more expensive sibling, and because I just liked the mahogany look. And wow. It did not disappoint. I read reviews that said with Grados you could hear the singers taking breaths and the squeak of the keys on the instruments. Yes, it's true. It takes me back to my days as a kid playing in our state orchestra. Wow. Unbelievable.

Grado RS2e Headphones March 7, 2017
Reviewer: Glenn Schroeder from Aurora, IL United States  
I purchased these headphones for use with a new iPod and a portable amp/DAC. These headphones are so good they are now used with my home sound system along with my Stax electrostatic headphones. The detail, imaging, and soundstage are amazing for these modestly priced headphones. I am hearing detail and clarity in my CDs that I haven't heard before, especially with SACDs. It is such a joy to hear "all" of the music once again. The upper frequencies are clean and clear without sounding etched or shrill.  Some with excellent hearing or "golden ears" may find these headphones a little "bright" with some music or recordings. On the low frequency end, these headphones deliver solid bass that comes across with authority, but without over emphasis. I am not a fan of heavy or exagerated bass that can spoil the music presentation by sounding out of balance and unnatural. I am very happy with these headphones.

I would like to add that my first time experience with 4OurEars was excellent.

Well. These are excellent December 19, 2016
Reviewer: carter harvey from Towson, MD United States  
I love these. I purchased from a local high-end audio dealer and have since also purchased from them Focal's new headphones, the Elear (which are also phenomenal). That said, I am still listening to the RS2e cans as much as I ever have. They are simply outstanding, and whether I am listening to them on a hike, or in my living room by the fire the quality of sound and they deliver is of the utmost intimacy. The warmth they deliver, and the details they capture are paramount. The SR80 was my first headphone, and with in a week I gifted them to a friend and bought the RS2e because I had to know what they could offer. Happily, these headphones have delivered pricelessly and I look forward to many, many years of listening.

Returns December 14, 2016
Reviewer: Harry Franke from Ely, NV United States  
The only complaint I have is the time it takes to get a refund. Otherwise, the service is average; nothing outstanding & nothing bad.
