Grado has recently change the colour of Statement and Reference headbands from black to a tan brown. Accordingly, the headphones you receive may not precisely match the colour found in the images.
The Grado RS2e might be the little brother of the Grado RS1e, but that does not make them a slouch. Indeed, you still get the head-turning mahogany construction of the Grado RS1e and much of the same internal design. The Grado RS2E has a 44mm driver that uses Grado's new E Series 8 conductor open air cable design, which compliments the hand crafted mahogany to produce a sound that is rich, full bodied and free from unwanted resonances.
The Grado RS2e is a marked improvement over its predecessors, the Grado RS2i and Grado RS2. Crucially, the Grado RS2e headphones still maintain that classic Grado sound, with warm harmonics, rich, full bodied vocals, unbeatable dynamics and an extremely smooth top end. Though they might be classified as a younger sibling, these headphones stand all on their own in their price class.
