I believe the RS in the 2 top Grado headphones means "Reference Series"....but what does the "SR" mean in the names of the Prestige Series Grados? Curious...

So, SR stands for "Series Reference?" Doesn't make much sense to me.

That doesn't make any sense.


Confused with the PS-1 as well.

I've wondered what the "DT" for Beyerdynamic and "HD" for Sennheiser stands for as well.
K for AKG is presumable Kopfhorer (sorry, no umlaut) and ATH for AT is Audio Technica Headphone.

I thought the PS-1 is Professional Series 1.
