For the first time, three different wood species are working together in a Grado headphone. The housing of the RS1x is made of a maple sleeve, hemp core and cocobolo outer ring. Building with wood for its warm and embracing tonal abilities, but finding the right balance of three separate woods is no simple task. The reward though is an RS1x that opens these headphones to a new level of sound. Pulling everything they can from the new 50mm X Driver, Grado's signature sound is brought to new heights when combined with maple, hemp and cocobolo. Maple takes care of most of the work, hemp smooths out top and low ends, while cocobolo adds that extra punch. Together the sound the woods produce, when combined with Grado's special processes, are full-bodied, dynamic, and truly defined.
Specifically tuned for the tri-wood RS1x, this new speaker design features a more powerful magnetic circuit, a voice coil with decreased effective mass and a reconfigured diaphragm. Reengineering these components for the larger 50mm drivers improve efficiency, reduces distortion and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.
Along with the speakers, the cables and headband have been redesigned for the RS1x. Housed in a more durable exterior, the now super annealed copper 8-conductor cable reveals even more of your music with improved purity and the new black leather headband features a white-stitched accent.
