RS1e Headphones

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.

The 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. The RS1e is a masterpiece in the Grado collection.

rs1e "... 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

      hemp
      • Into the Unknown

        In our never-ending pursuit to experiment with all types of woods and materials, we had the opportunity to build with hemp. We weren't sure how these hemphones would turn out, but to everyone’s surprise it quickly became a favorite passed around Grado. To be blunt, this is one of the best sounding Limited Editions we've built.
