If we can only convert a few people away from Skullcandy, it will be worth it.

when i saw the Grado;s the first thiung i said to my son was BS!  The guy should be using DT48's

hahaha, it warms up my heart when I see something that isn't beats, skullcandy, or bose, and is glorified because the headphones actually deserves it.

Interesting.. the director / producer must be a head-fier him/herself

Hollywood is all about looks.  The $500 RS2s are the modest alternative to the $700 RS1.  And to people who live by style over substance, an RS2 probably sounds better than an RS1.  After all, it's a 2!!!  It must ben upgrade!!!

Interesting. I might have to check this out. Any other Burn Notice fans around here?

it was some good product placement i've been looking for some good cans for a while and this show got me to look in to the rs2i's now i'm saving up for some. 

also as far as it being like burn notice, the acting seems way better already.

 

i'm also looking for some headphones that aren't open so that i can wear them outside my house. could anyone suggest any?

(preferably under $500.) thanks.

But he pronounced the name Grado with a short a (Grahdoe), rather than the long a preferred by the family that owns the eponymous company (Gradeoe).  Lost credibility (as with much else in the show).

LOL, but I pronounce them as "Grahdoe" as well. It does not matter how he pronounces them IMO.

But that ruins the multiple-leveled pun of the GR8 IEM. Think of the repercussions!

i know this is a dead post but i had to say that i found this site after seeing the Grados on the show and ended up getting the HF-2s. i owe the director for taking me the next step toward becoming an audiophile.

(paraphrased)

Girl: I was going to ask what the headphones are for...
Guy: Grado RS-2's. Great for monitoring operations, real-time feedback when I'm typing and listening to Mingus.

Just saw episode 2 of this show and it looks like the Grados are going to be a constant item in this series 8) This time, aside from being seen around the neck of the male character again, they're given as a gift at the end of the episode for a kid who helped the CIA solve a case.




Namedropped again in the dialogue: "Wow... reference-grade Grados!"


Jonh Grado must be handing out a substantial amount of money for the publicity. obviously.

I don't assume that.  Maybe the director/creator is just a fan of the brand and wants to spread the word.  Or maybe he's a friend of the family.  Who knows?

 

To be honest, I don't think Grado's business is any where near as large as say Coke, or Pepsi, or Apple, or Ford, or GM, to be able to afford typical product placement costs, or, to be able to afford it and get any kind of commensurate return on that investment.
