Grado PS1000e: Overview

The Grado PS1000e is by far the best headphone ever created by the audio wizards at Grado Labs.

The Grado PS1000e is the sequel to the renowned Grado PS1000i and Grado 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 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.
