The Grado RS1e headphones builds on all the elements that have made this range and the New York-based brand so popular.
A vintage leather headband design makes it quite unique.
The earphone chambers are cut from beautiful Mahogany pieces, providing outstanding stiffness and generating no awkward vibration and hence, no mechanical distortion.
For those who were disheartened with the comfort of the old Grado, it must be noted that the RS1e is considered to be one of the best headphones in the world and also one of the most comfortable on the market!
The design is simply amazing; true craftsmanship in the noble sense of the term. The products are assembled by hand in the company’s historic Brooklyn workshop.
The transducers have an astonishing frequency response 12Hz/30kHz!
They undergo drastic sorting and pairing. The transducer coil wiring uses HPLC (High Purity Long Crystal) conductors and jumper cables.
It must be said that this RS1e needs a good fifty hours of breaking in for the sound quality to be perfectly uniform and that a decent preamp must be added for you to enjoy its full potential.
Their dynamic range is well-suited to rock music, so they're perfect for fans of acoustic and electric guitar. Drums and percussion are perfectly reproduced with uncommon accuracy.
The realism and depth of the lower spectrum is superb. Voices and timbres seem to be clearer than on the GS 1000.
These Grado RS1e Hi-Fi headphones have been produced for more than 15 years and were for a long time the high end of Grado production. They are now a legend and the benchmark for all the brand's fans.
One of the most energetic and musical dynamic headphones on the market... a safe buy!
