Grado Reference Series RS2X Headphones

    Description

    A Tale of Two Timbers

    A nimble yet unwavering headphone, the redesigned RS2x explores new territory for the Reference Series by marrying maple with hemp wood.

     

    Maple, Meet Hemp

    A family favorite, the RS2x has been completely redesigned to bring out the full potential of its maple and hemp wood. The housing’s sleeve and ring are made from maple, while a hemp core keeps everything together. For decades we’ve used wood for its warm and embracing tonal abilities, and the RS2x is an exceptional evolution to the RS2 line.

     

    Signature Sound

    Discovering new pieces in songs heard hundreds of times is what we’re here for. The driver and housing working in tandem react to sound vibrations and virtually eliminate transient distortions. With harmonic colors and a world renowned mid-range, the RS2x immediately draws you in. The sound the woods produce, when combined with our special processes, are full-bodied with a rich vocality.

    A New Harmony.

    X Series Drivers

    4th gen X Drivers are here. Specifically tuned for the RS2x wood housing, this new speaker design features a more powerful magnetic circuit, a voice coil with decreased effective mass, and a reconfigured diaphragm. Reengineering these components for our 44mm drivers improve efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.

    A Little Extra.

    New Cable & Headbands

    Along with the speakers, the cables and headband have been redesigned for the RS2x. Housed in a more durable exterior, the now super annealed copper 8-conductor cable reveals even more of your music with improved purity. The new black leather headband features a white-stitched accent.

    With Love.

    Hand Assembled in Brooklyn

    Founded on a kitchen table in 1953, and working with wood for over a quarter century, Grado Labs has been perfecting the art of sonic reproduction every day since. This RS2x has traveled from workbench to workbench until ready for your ears. Every experience since that kitchen table has led to the creation of the RS2x.
