Leave your candy-colored cans in the toy chest and try a pair of proper headphones. Grado RS2e are hand-crafted from select Mahogany tone-woods, like a fine musical instrument.

The RS2e is the little brother of the RS1e but is just as aesthetically pleasing, now utilizing our proprietary curing process that gives a new, lighter look. The RS2e has a 44mm driver and uses The e Series 8 conductor cable design. The hand-crafted mahogany utilizes new advanced damping treatments that help control and dissipate resonances.The RS2e still maintains an overall sound that is pure Grado, with warm harmonic colors, rich full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics, and an ultra-smooth top end. These truly are an audiophiles dream.

A good headphone at this price
While RS1i is the most popular and owned Grado headphone, RS2i seems to be a little bit inconspicuous. RS2i is very close to the old model RS1 (the pairs with 'eyes') but the high is not as bright as RS1, which is good especially for those don't have a good headphone amplifier. So RS2i sounds better than RS1i in vocal but with a smaller sound stage due to a smaller can. At this price, I feel that the RS2i is worth more the money.
It takes some time to burn in the RS2i. The high was slightly too bright in the first few hours but it becomes much better after 10 plus hours of listening.
The headphone is a little tighter than the RS1i but unless you are listening to it for that many hours without a rest, it should be alright. Anyway, listening to headphones for too long a time period is not good for your ears either. :)
TREOO's customer service is very good. The staff are very friendly and the shipping is very fast. I missed the first delivery due to my own schedule problem but they re-delivered it at my requested time the next day.
Overall, it is a good headphone and a very good shopping experience.
