The RS2e is the little brother of the RS1e. The RS2e has an upgraded driver and the new 8 conductor cable design. The characteristics of the RS2e remain the same as its distinguished big brother, with the new species of hand crafted mahogany, but with a smaller wooden air chamber. Although a miniature version of the RS1e, the RS2e still maintains an overall sound that is pure Grado, warm harmonic color, full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics and ultra smooth top end. Grado's famous retro styling with a gorgeous Mahogany look make these truly an audiophile's dream.
