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.

5 of 5 Best headphones I’ve ever owned! July 9, 2019
Reviewer: Jason Cowherd from Glen Burnie , MD United States  
I started out with the Grado SR80e and later moved up to the SR225e.  As much as I loved both of them, I wondered if there was a better example that could display the Grado sound.  After a lot of research and thanks to a recently received tax refund, I purchased a pair of RS2e’s.  The first time I listened to them, the tight bass and smooth treble hooked me within seconds! I haven’t gone back to the SR80’s or the 225’s since purchasing these.

4 of 5 Great set of open back headphones; my journey June 4, 2019
Reviewer: Kevin from Tucson, AZ United States  
I have a more extensive review on the Amazon page, but in short, these are great headphones for the money and suit my sonic preferences nearly to a T. I wish they delivered as much detail as the 325e, but make up for it in in all other frequencies from about 8KHz and below.

5 of 5 The best headphones I have ever owned January 13, 2019
Reviewer: Frances Schaefer from Chapel Hill, NC United States  
I am a professional pianist and teacher. I listen to many many styles (jazz, fusion, R&B, soul, etc.) and within the field of "classical" music, 20th and 21st century works.  Over many years earnings went to the household, maintaining my studio, music library, paying for our kids' activities. I only had "drugstore" headphones. I am an "empty nester" and have gone back to listening to a LOT of music, all the time.  A musician friend (a jazz pianist, trained composer) recommended these headphones. They are absolutely wonderful: clarity, balance and the "atmosphere" created by the acoustic space. I am so pleased! I have expanded my cd collection and have many old LPs  from my father's collection (dance band musician, music librarian, choir director, composer). The quality has astounded me from the beginning. I have had them for about a month. I purchased some Bose headphones recently but these are even better. Thank you!

5 of 5 Great sound July 31, 2018
Reviewer: Rick M from Portland, OR United States  
I've been using a pair of Grado Prestige Series SR60e phones for a few years now, and decided that I liked them well enough to try an upgrade. The RS2e phones are noticeably clearer at all frequencies, revealing details in the music I hadn't heard with the SR60e phones.
Better sound all around; a worthwhile investment!

4 of 5 4 stars July 10, 2018
Reviewer: Joseph Sequeira from Somerville, MA United States  
articulate and well detailed all through the spectrum, open spacious with a healthy bass response. Most importantly for me, VERY lightweight and comfortable especially for the long listening sessions. My ears aren't numb from over pressure.
