Fun and engaging (rs2e)

Pros: Gorgeous hand crafted design, transparent mids, intimate vocals, sparkly clear highs, deep detailed bass, very open sounding, easy to drive

Cons: Lacks bass impact, lacks subbass, grattles and looses control in higher volumes, uncomfortable

The RS-2 are not at all like that in fact I think the 325is start to capture the house sound rather well but are still fathoms below the Vintage RS-2's.   Build: Well the 325is I fell are built...
