The Grado RS-1e is a Masterpiece in the Grado collection, a product which oozes class both in looks and sound. The RS1e has a more controlled bottom end than the 325e, several additional layers of resolution, and a more natural sound. The Black Dragon smooths out the top end and provides a fuller presentation with more bottom end weight.

These headphones feature a hardwired, 4.5-foot Black Dragon Headphone Cable (V2) with a Sony Pentaconn 4.4mm balanced connector. They come in the original packaging and include a 6-inch 3.5mm Black Dragon Adapter cable.

Ever wondered what hardcore audiophiles are hearing, and that you might be missing? The Grado RS1e is the point of no return so be warned, cross this threshold and you’ll never enjoy mass-market headphones again. Once you’ve experienced this elegant audio masterpiece you’ll grasp the reference.

"They excel at giving your music real definition, and they have one of the silkiest presentations at the high end that I’ve heard in a set of on-ear headphones. I found they did real justice to almost any music I fed them, and they’re beautifully balanced at medium to full listening levels. Another win for Grado."

— Woody Sherman, Crutchfield

The new RS1e from Grado 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 collection.

Drew recommends the Black Dragon V2 Headphone Cable as the best choice for the Grado RS1e.
