Grado Reference Series RS1i Headphones

Product information The ‘improved’ version of the legendary RS1 headphones, the RS1i features a new species of handcrafted Mahogany earpieces made using an intricate curing process helping to optimize the tonal quality delivered. The RS1i uses new upgraded dynamic transducers and the new 8 conductor cable design all in an open-air configuration, the cups being open-backed. 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 model a dark-coloured Mahogany look which distinguishes these from any other pair of headphones. The RS1 is at its best with instrumental, vocal and small-scale groups, particularly if you like your music up front and personal. The low end is warm, the high frequencies are crisp and clear, and there is never any distortion. This is, quite simply, the way music is supposed to sound
