These are a special pair of limited edition Grados that live up to their name. Grado started in 1952/1953 and has been thriving ever since. This year they decided to put out a pair of special edition headphones, and it's the first ever they've built out of a Brooklyn Tree (Maple). Given that this isn't their usual wood, it has some interesting differences from the other Grados, e.g. RS2i, RS1i, HF-1, HF-2, and even the GS1000. I find these to be more controlled but very dynamic in the midrange with improved clarity on the low and high end. I would find these most similar to the RS1i, but I find myself liking these more and more. I have owned a ton of Grados, and I wish I could keep these, but I have too many and I'll probably regret selling these like I did the W3000 ANV when they first came out.

This is my first Grado 'woodie', excepting any Grado headphones where the wood parts are inside of the earcups only. I describe the sound compared to the SR325e, since I don't have a sense of how any of the Grado 'RS' series sound. This is a very good headphone, but be aware that some of the $650 USD price is because of the limited material from that Brooklyn tree.
