The Grado RS2i is a high-end set of headphones, promoted by Grado as a lower-cost alternative to their flagship RS1i model. The most unique feature of the RS2i headphones when compared to traditional headphones is the handcrafted mahogany earpieces, which are cured in order to optimize the quality of tone, providing harmonic accuracy. The vented diaphragm of the RS2i headphones, a Grado hallmark, ups the sound clarity, decreasing distortion with improved bass response over traditional headphone designs. This set of headphones has a smaller wooden air chamber than the RS1i model, which means that their sound will not be as all-encompassing as that of the RS1i headphones. A feature on the Grado RS2i headphones that is updated from the RS1i model is the eight conductor cable design, which improves control and stability of the total range of the frequency spectrum.
