Grado RS2E HEADPHONES
Quite handily one of the best headphones, it serves the musical source without exaggeration so you can listen as if you were with the artists recording in the studio. Because of this, if you are seeking bass thumpers or ear-splitting sound, or overabundant detail, the R2SE is not for you. It is well-balanced top to bottom purposely to accurately serve the artist's intent for the recording, not anyone else's remixing of it.
In case you want a remix version of the music, you can do this yourself through your own equalization - just play with the bass and treble controls, haha.
FYI, We read somewhere that replacing the RS2E's cushion with Grado's own G-cush turns it into an over-the-ear design and makes the sound slightly different (we won't say better because we defer that judgment for you to make): wider soundstage, sub-bass tauter, etc. Just like tube and stylus rolling, eh?
