Most people like music, but Grado PS500e headphones are too good for most people. We make them for music connoisseurs. For the ones who anticipate Amy Winehouse’s breath between lyrics. For the ones who absolutely need to place the second violin with their eyes closed. If you get chills from a Cuban trombone solo, we need to talk.
The PS500e is the younger brother to the PS1000e, with newly redesigned 44mm speaker and the improved 8 conductor cable design and a smaller metal and wood hybrid air chamber. Both the hidden mahogany core and and powder-coated aluminum housing parts under-go damping treatments that help control and dissipate resonances, for an undistorted flow of the musical signal. The PS500e boasts an overall sound that is pure Grado, with warm harmonic colors, rich full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics, and an ultra-smooth top end. The PS500e is a compact monitoring tool that will put a smile on the face of the most demanding music professionals, as well as the most demanding audiophiles.
Brooklyn's Grado Labs newest is the Grado PS500e, and a HeadRoom favorite in the Grado line, an ingenious take-off from their fabulous top-of-the-line PS1000 full-size headphone made more compact and affordable. The PS500e headphone has a completely open-back, on-ear 'earpad' construction ideal for audiophiles seeking the best sound Grado offers with a richly immersive tone at a price that won't make you sell your vintage vinyl collection to pay the bill.
