The Alessandro MS1 is a high end headphone designed by Grado and Alessandro, and distributed by Alessandro. Designed to be more neutral in their presentation compared to their coloured Grado brethren, the MS series is created for music makers in mind. With the same plastic body as the presteige series (SR60 through 225), the MS1 mixes technologies from the lower end SR60/80 and the middle-of-the-line black sheep, the SR125. Priced at a flat $99 with free world wide shipping, the MS1 is considered an ideal substitute for individuals outside of the US in countries where Grados are priced far above their American MSRPs. The MS1 can be terminated with either a 1/8" (mini - the size for most personal media players) or 1/4" stereo plugs.
