Grao Professional SeriesGrado headphones are proud of our flagship professional headphones line. Using Grados rich heritage of headphone design that originated in Brooklyn, New York, this hybrid design has an inner sleeve of a selected species of hand-crafted mahogany made by using an intricate curing process. Its outer housing of metal machined from a special non-resonant, very hard metal alloy 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. These really are the perfect headphones for audiophiles, with the products proving their worth of the rather large price tag.

The Grado Grado PS1000e is by far the best headphone ever created by the audio wizards at Grado Labs.
The Grado Grado PS1000e is the sequel to the renowned PS1000i and PS1000 headsets, making the best of those models even better. Crafted with tone-wood and metal alloy, Grado have successfully eliminated two of the most trying issues that exist in headphone design: chamber ring and transient distortion. For audio professionals, that means outstanding and consistent response throughout the frequency range. For the rest of us, it means sound quality the likes of which we've never heard.
The Grado PS1000e's stunning design features an inner sleeve of hand-crafted mahogany, made by using the new 'e' curing process. Meanwhile, its outer housing is machined from top quality chrome-plated aluminium and utilises a ground-breaking processing and casting method to increase the porosity of the alloy.
This combination of wood and high-porosity metal ensures that the earphones don't suffer from chamber ring, which plagues so many headphones. Indeed, the Grado PS1000e's present audio with extreme clarity, supreme detail and zero colouration. Additionally, the construction of the headphones means that the way air moves and reacts within the headphones means that sound vibrations are almost unaffected by transient distortions.
The Grado PS1000e also introduce a new generation of cable design for Grado. The new twelve-conductor cable design uses UHPLC (Ultra-High Purity, Long Crystal) copper, which improves control and stability throughout the frequency spectrum. They also have a new 50mm driver and freshly redesigned voice coil and diaphragm design, which contributes to unsurpassed agility and accuracy.
Of course, it's not just about sound, it's about how they sit on your head. Grado have created a new cushion design makes the Grado PS1000e one of the most comfortable sets of headphones in the world for long or short listens. Of course, because it's Grado, the design also creates the correct balance between the driver and the housing, ensuring a brilliant listen every time.
The Grado Grado PS1000e represents the culmination of decades of internal research and design at Grado Labs. Their knowledge and experience in controlling resonances and eliminating distortions, their history of stunning headphones and their love for high-end audio have resulted in one of the best pair of open backed headphones ever made. If you love music, you need Grado's Grado PS1000e.

Grado Professional Series
If you're looking for astonishing audio paired with near-unsurpassed build quality, you need the Grado Grado PS500e, which delivers almost all of the lauded sonic performance of the iconic, flagship PS1000e headset, but at a lower price.
Grado made their name bringing not just technology to their headphones, but heart. For the Grado Grado PS500e, that means not merely producing a sound that presents music with outstanding clarity, but also with integrity and strength in emotion. These aren't headphones for those that like music, these are headphones for those of us who live for it. Those of us to whom the sound of fingers dancing across fret boards, the breaths taken between lyrics and the spacing of a properly mastered record send shivers down our spins.
The Grado Grado PS500e headset is the sequel to the much loved PS500i and PS500 models and achieves this via a newly redesigned 44mm speaker, a redesigned 8 conducted cable design and a metal and wood hybrid air chamber. If that sounds similar to the PS1000e's set up, it's for a reason - the Grado PS500e headphones were designed to in tandem with its bigger sibling. That means that like the PS1000e, the hidden mahogany core and powder-coated aluminium housing parts are treated for sound damping properties. These processes help to control and dissipate resonances, helping the Grado PS500e's drivers delivering an undistorted flow of musical signal directly to your ears.
The Grado Grado PS500e headphones present a sound which is classic Grado; offering warm harmonic colours, full blooded and full bodied vocals, supreme dynamic range and a high-end which is never compromised by complex musicality.
The Grado PS500e's are a compact monitoring headset which offer so much more, and will put a smile on the face of even the most seasoned audiophile. We think you'll be delighted by them, because we certainly are.
