Grado RS-2 or Alessandro MS2?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

So I'm gonna get either a Grado RS-2i or an Alessandro MS2. I'm gonna also buy it with either a pico USB/DAC or an RSA Predator.

I listen to oldies rock and metal most of the time, but I also take my time listening to hiphop and I usually listen for about 1 - 3 hours per session. Do you think these headphones match my music genre? If not, what should I get? (Price range $200 to $500 for headphones).

Thanks a lot guys!

I know this is an old post but... I'm at the exactly same decision point.  Which 'phone did you get?  What are your thoughts?

Depends on what sound sig you prefer.  Generally speaking Alessandro has been considered a warmer presentation compared to Grado.


The RS-2 performs great in the rock genre, offering the speed and detail.  Guitars will sound wonderful on both hp's.  Both hp's were built to rock!!! :veryevil:


If you get the opportunity try and audition the PS-500,  it may offer a hybrid sound somewhere between the Alessandro sound and Grado.


Overall though.....RS-2 wins by a significant margin IMO.
