Grado PS500e: Overview

If you're looking for astonishing audio paired with near-unsurpassed build quality, you need the Grado PS500e, which delivers almost all of the lauded sonic performance of the iconic, flagship Grado PS1000e headset, but at a lower price.

Grado made their name bringing not just technology to their headphones, but heart. For the 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 PS500e headset is the sequel to the much loved Grado PS500i and Grado 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 Grado 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 Grado 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 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.
