Everything was fast and by the numbers. Would definitely do repeat business.

What I've been waiting for August 25, 2016
Reviewer: Steven Frieson from Brooklyn, NY United States  
I first listened to an album that I knew very well and have been listening to for years and was surprised to hear nuances and details I'd never heard before. These headphones are exceptional across genres allowing even the subtlest detail to be heard.

Most Excellent Sound July 9, 2016
Reviewer: C Schumann from Ogdensburg, NY United States  
I couldn't like my new RS1e's more! Grado sound is so real and natural, of course I'm also using the Grado RA-1 amp with them. They are Just Amazing!!!

Great Customer Service (pretty good cans too!) May 9, 2016
Reviewer: JS from Tampa, FL United States  
These guys rock! I ordered the RS1e (upgrade from the 325e) with overnight shipping on a Thursday to get them in time for a weekend trip. FedEx gave me a Tuesday delivery estimate...not what I had in mind. A few calls to 4OurEars and the set was delivered Saturday morning. Big, BIG thank you for taking the time to get the customer what they ordered. The soundstage on the RS1e was, even to my uneducated ears, seriously better than the 325s - am hearing the limits of my Denon AVR 4520 vs the Oppo HA-2 amp. Need the Oppo 105D now :-)

The RS1 Enhanced March 3, 2016
Reviewer: Jason Malocha from Scotts, MI United States  
Having owned the RS1i for a while I was eager to give the new "e" version a try but was hesitant while some of the bugs were worked out in the earlier models. After I received the newest version with the tan leather headband (which looks amazing) I was a little unimpressed about the sound at first listen. But after a few hours they really started to open up, the bass tightened up and soundstage increased while smoothing out the midrange. What an amazing sounding headphone; You just have to give them some time to break in before they really start to sing. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking to upgrade or even those who already own an RS1 or RS1i.
