What does the i stand for in the new RS2i from Grado? Improved, that’s what! The RS2i is the little brother of the RS1i. The RS2i has an upgraded driver and the new 8 conductor cable design. The characteristics of the RS2i 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 RS1i, the RS2i still maintains an overall sound that is pure Grado, warm harmonic color, full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics and ultra smooth top end. These truly are audiophiles dream.
|"...the RS2s’ big-hearted sound won us over. It’s more vivid than that of other high-quality headphones—bass is reach and touch-realistic, midrange is clear and true, and treble livelier than any other headphones we’ve tried."
- Steve Guttenberg / CNET
|Just as oak barrels enhance the flavor of wine, these mahogany drums refine the sound of music. The earpieces on Grado's RS2 headphones are handcrafted from specially cured wood and have a large open-air chamber. The result is a complex bouquet of decreased distortion, accentuated bass response, warm harmonic tones and a supersmooth top end. Sweet!

|"...it's the full-bodied sound - especially the luscious, rich resonant bass - that makes the Grado 'phones special"
- Sam Telling - STEREOPHILE Vol. 21, No.2
|"If you audition the Grado RS2s, you may find something you never heard before: the calm artistry of well made sound."
