The presentation is very detailed, the bass is deep and the music is very tight and non-fatiguing. All with a soundstage that is huge allowing for unbelievable separation and layering of the music which is simply stunning.
The RS1's are the only product ever nominated by STEREOPHILE for their "PRODUCT OF THE YEAR" distinction, two years in a row!
The RS2e Reference headphone is a handsome instrument that attracts attention with the usual virtue of its beautifully crafted exotic-wood earpiece housings. Its a gorgeous piece of gear. It also employs very high-grade, well insulated cable for the interconnect between each earpiece and your sound systems phone jack.
Features are the same as the SR-125 but, this headphone has an increased air flow by 50% which is achieved through an improved rear metal screen and closer matched drivers.
"Still, in its own realm the Grado SR125e is a real winner and an excellent value. I cannot imagine a better sounding headphone at anywhere near its price."
First headphone ever awarded a "GOLDEN NOTE AWARD" presented by the Academy for the Advancement of High End Audio.
The way the SR60iís new driver and plastic housing move air and react to sound vibrations are now less affected by transient distortions. With the SR60i you will notice improved control of the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum with both better supporting Gradoís world renowned midrange.
Designed specifically for the portable electronics market, it was Grado's goal to design a street style headphone that will sonically outperform anything currently available in the low-end portable market.
It's no mistake that Grado named their new in-ear earphones the GR8 (as in GREAT). The GR-8 provides maximum fidelity for the serious iPod user.
A proprietary moving armature allows this earphone to product the most musical and wonderfully wide dynamics of any earphone in its class.
