Grado RS1e Reference Headphones

Details

Referential Treatment

Ever wondered what hardcore audiophiles are hearing, and that you might be missing? The Grado RS1e is the point of no return so be warned, cross this threshold and you’ll never enjoy mass-market headphones again. Once you’ve experienced this elegant audio masterpiece you’ll grasp the reference.

... They excel at giving your music real definition, and they have one of the silkiest presentations at the high end that I’ve heard in a set of on-ear headphones. I found they did real justice to almost any music I fed them, and they’re beautifully balanced at medium to full listening levels. Another win for Grado.
- Crutchfield, Woody Sherman

The new RS1e from Grado uses a different species of handcrafted mahogany from our previous models. The earpieces utilize an intricate curing process that optimizes the tonal quality while giving them a new look. The RS1e places a 50mm dynamic transducer and an 8 conductor cable design in an open-air configuration. The result is a smooth, controlled, and coherent sound with detailed dynamics. Frequency response ranges from 12-30 kHz and the drivers are matched to 0.05dB. Weighing 9oz, the headphones are an example of the wonders of Mother Nature with a gorgeous light mahogany look.

  • Tranducer type: dynamic
  • Operating principle: open air
  • Frequency response: 12Hz – 30KHz
  • Impedence: 32 Ohms
Description

Grado’s Third Generation, The New ‘e’ Series.

The Grado family makes exquisite headphones by hand in our Brooklyn facility. Each iteration of our products represents a significant step forward in sonic reproduction. Our  headphones have already been called "The finest electricity-to-sound transducer in the world". So how did we improve upon perfection?

  • Every single component, surface, and material used in The e Series has been upgraded and optimized for one purpose - outstanding dynamics and fidelity.
  • Grado's proprietary SpaceBlack Polycarbonate is engineered to absorb excess energy and reduce secondary impulses, for a clearer tone.
  • The e Series method of curing our select Mahogany tone-woods enhances their natural ability to reduce sound coloration and produce consistent results.
  • Rhodium, the most expensive precious metal on earth, is employed to prevent corrosion on connectors, and unwanted graininess in your music.
