RS1e is the flagship headphone in Grado’s Reference Series, carrying the iconic classic Grado design with genuine wood and leather that could be recognized from afar. RS1e is handcrafted in Grado’s factory in Brooklyn, New York!

The new RS1e 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 collections.

The Grado RS1e is lightweight and has a big-as-all-outdoors soundstage and clarity that are highly sort after at its price range. Please be sure to drive it with a proper headphone amplifier and DAC, such as Oppo HA-2SE or Audeze Deckard.

Take a look at its little brother, the RS2e if you opt for a slightly lower price point.
