“ These were purchased on impulse - more to experience the Grado/Alessandro sound than anything - and quickly became one of my favourite headphones. Incredible sound, incredible value, and the ability to modify them yourself so that they punch far above their original weight. For this review - I'm using them at my desktop with FLAC recordings using Amarok player (Linux) via and...” --Brooko
“Introduction – Many people started their audio journey in the same way, caught between the Japanese precision of the ATH-M50x or the Brooklyn passion of the Grado SR80i. But those a little more invested in the hobby might direct you towards an Alessandro headphone instead; a manufacturer who adopts the classic design of the Grado`s with a subtly redesigned and reimagined sound. Whilst the...” --ryanjsoo
“I moved up from low end Grado’s and have been listening for about month now. Delicate, warm and exciting. Very tight controlled base. Loving them for most music, but especially folk / instrumental / jazz etc. Not for everyone, but I like the Grado design. Very light to were and reasonably comfortable. Recommended. ” --johndog
“One of the most easy to install, a great look, a beautiful red aluminum finish, a perfectly designed kit for people with no need to fully liberate the driver and a perfect sound. Pity that the assembly is so heavy, however, the headphone fits snug against the head.” --Gidu
“If the A50s gave you the option to customize the presets, I imagine that they would be great for FPS gaming. However, they do not and even the preset with the least low end has too much to hear any of the subtler sounds (e.g., footsteps). I use them with a PS4 and have tried every possible combination of settings to no avail. There are far less expensive options on the market that offer more...” --Hoopdy
“Before I bought The Alessandro Ms2e I searched high and low for a review,with none to be found. I went ahead and purchased them anyways and here are my thoughts(and my first review,so be gentle) About me: I am NOT an audiophile.I just really like music.I am a former drummer and DJ,and studied sound engineering in college,so my ears are better than the average Joe,but I'm no "Golden...” --monsterzero
“ The sound quality is a lot better than they make it seem, the marketing shows it being used with PSPs and phones, but they are capable of handling more than angry birds. I use these for PC gaming and music. The sound on these almost compare to my Sony MDR EX700LPs, but with a better soundstage and less bass extension. I actually prefer these to the A40s, they...” --jimmy895
“Ok first I need to say that I'm not an audiophile, and I use this site mostly for help than giving advise whit that told I will continue I've owned this headset for more than a year and they are really good, if you're looking for a headset that can be used with the xbox, xbox one , ps3, ps4, and not only in your pc and ipod, mp3 player and so but it have an average sound ,...” --MaxiMarciano
