Reference series headphone from Grado. Lightly used and complete with packing and 1/4" adaptor.

Natural, organic sound
Slip on Grado's RS1e Reference Series headphones and hear your music like never before — startlingly clear, with a sense of presence and transparency that takes you right into the studio or on stage with your favorite artists. These headphones feature updates to Grado's previous RS1i headphones, including an improved driver design, better acoustic damping, and a new cable.

The earcups are made from a different species of mahogany than the previous version, for even more natural warmth and smoothness. The headphones' large wooden air chambers allow them to deliver terrific sonic impact with very low distortion and coloration. You'll experience a wide, open soundstage with extended bass that complements everything from sweeping orchestral arrangements to high-energy rock. The SR1e can be driven using the headphone outputs on most home audio systems, or even a portable player or laptop.

Old-school looks with up-to-the-minute technology
Like all Grado headphones, the RS1e uses a vented "open-air" earcup design for powerful, extended low frequency response and a more spacious soundstage. Each pair is made from a specially selected species of mahogany. An intricate process of curing the wood is used between production steps to achieve optimum sound quality. Ultra-high purity copper voice coils and a sturdy eight-conductor connecting cable deliver refined sound with a high degree of control and accuracy. The RS1e's extra-wide frequency range ensures you'll hear all your music. And the genuine leather headband can be adjusted for a comfortable fit.

Testing Process:

We start with a visual inspection of drive units to ensure they are intact, the pads are supple and compliant and the headband is operative. We then check the cable for any broken wires, stressed connecting points or jacks.

We then do a listening test to make sure all frequencies, specially the bass is free from distortion, rattles of signs of a compromised transducer. We do a full frequency sweep and check for bass response and high frequency reach.

The unit is the cleaned, cord is properly coiled and supplement any connectors or adapters that should be present.
