Product Description

Style Name: PS1000e

Product Description

Grado is proud to introduce the new PS1000e, unquestionably their best ever headphone and acclaimed by many as the best headphones in the world.This hybrid design has an inner sleeve of a selected species of handcrafted mahogany, made by using an intricate curing process. Its outer housing of metal is machined from a special non-resonant, very hard metal alloy and utilizes a special processing and casting method to increase the porosity of the alloy. This combination of wood and metal insures that the earphone chamber has no "ringing" which might obscure detail or add coloration. The way the wood and metal housing moves air and reacts to sound vibrations is now virtually unaffected by transient distortions. Grado has also designed a new cable for the PS1000e. The new eight-conductor cable design, utilizing UHPLC (ultra-high purity, long crystal) copper, improves control and stability across the entire audio spectrum. The PS1000e also utilizes a newly re-configured voice coil and diaphragm design, resulting in unsurpassed speed and accuracy of response. The cushion design creates the correct balance between the driver and hybrid housing to achieve the desired musicality. This cushion design also makes the PS1000e one of the most comfortable headphones to wear. The PS1000e is the culmination of decades of Grado's knowledge and experience in controlling resonances and eliminating distortions. As with all Grado products the most important aspect is the sound. If you are a true music lover; one who will only be satisfied by the very best? The Grado PS1000e is your natural choice.Listen, enjoy and agree.

I love these headphones, they're without doubt my pick of the £1,000+ headphone market.

They have a wonderfully open sound and pack oodles of detail into an expansive stereo image. Everything from their impressively deep (but natural bass response to their sparkly (but not too bright) treble impresses me. They may not be as precise as the likes of Stax or the Audeze LCD3's but what they lack in accuracy they make up in absolute excitement, with every bass, mid-range and treble note conveying a resounding brilliance that I can only describe as electric which just isn't found with other brands.

If you're considering spending more than £1,000 then you should definitely give these an audition along with the Audeze LCD3's (superior accuracy) and Sennheiser HD800's (very neutral coloration, superior 3D imaging, superior comfort) in my opinion. Each have a different character and you may simply prefer one of the other, however, you should take careful consideration when matching the LCD3's with an appropriate headphone amplifier as they can sound very lacking otherwise. I've auditioned dozens within this end of the market, even the Stax and wouldn't consider any of the other brands in my short list (sorry).

The only downside is the headband and comfort of the headphone but at this price point it's ALL about how they sound. If I didn't get these I would get the LCD3's which are quite heavy anyway, so either way I'm going to suck it up, lay back on my bean bag and just enjoy some late night listening sessions.

BTW, these cans will "leak" sound because they're an OPEN back design. If you're looking for the best closed back design then you should consider the Audeze LCD XC's.

Great Headphone by Grado. Excellent bass. A bit hard when you wear it and cable is too sick. Relatively easy to drive.

I tried Senheiser, Audeze, Ultrasone and others. I admit to wondering how these sold. I found them terrible. Yet the Grado brought tears to my eyes. I knew I had found the sound I have been looking for for years. Yes at a grand they are not cheap but saving up for them is a good aim to have. I have bought all of my hi fi stuff by listening and comparing first. It's a must. Analogue Seduction who sell on Amazon allow this to happen.

Sources: iPhone6+ with the Oppo HA-2/v-moda Verza DAC/amps; various computers using the HRT Microstreamer/FiiO E17k/Beyerdynamic A200p DAC/amps.

Most people have heard or read the term 'breathtaking' at times, but for most people it's pretty rare to experience anything they'd describe as breathtaking. The same goes for me, until now. I was trying to describe the sound of the PS1000e to a friend and the effortless way that it reproduces and presents the music I play. The analogy I used was a world champion weightlifter, challenged to pick up a 10 lb dumbbell and lift it overhead. That pretty well defines 'effortless', and how I perceive the PS1000's sound qualities. Actually, sound quality has two main aspects - the signature and the tonality that underlies that signature. None of this is especially simple, despite a reviewer's best efforts to break it down. The main component of the signature is the ordinary frequency response, which varies in every physical device, with temperature and humidity for example, or by a user's perception given changes in the background noise level and type of noise.

The amount and quality of materials plus workmanship that make up the PS1000e are what smooth the response and create the impression of effortlessness. Small lightweight headphones may have excellent drivers in their earcups, but small and light does not leave room for damping materials that smooth out resonances and other anomalies which make the sound choppy, bumpy, or otherwise irregular. The second main component of the sound is the faithful tonality of voices and instruments. I don't have "perfect pitch" as do some musicians, so I'm more forgiving of a slightly skewed tonality in some instruments than they would be.

Having progressed through a series of excellent headphones (HD580, HD650, SR225) these are without a doubt the best phones I've ever....wait, scrap that...most enjoyable phones I've ever listened to. Are they the best phones? no. Are they the most comfortable? no. Do they deliver wwriwyg?(what was recorded is what you get) no. Have they made me listen to a huge amount of music since getting them, just to see how awesome this old album sounds, and revel in the improvement and enjoyment created by these phones? absolutely. Simple example: bob Dylan. I never really enjoyed his music, simply because of the whinyness of his voice. It really grated on me. With these phones, however, the timbre changes. You can here the grit in his throat and the saliva swirling round his lips as he blows out great music. I've been blown away. And the most amazing thing about these phones? straight out of my iphone sounds fantastic. I have a respectable desktop setup, and realistically, unless you're in a quietened room, concentrating hard, it's difficult to see a whole lot of difference. It's there of course, like the phones just have that little more space to breathe, but straight out the phone is definitely fine by my standards.
