The Grado PS500e Professional Headphones Sound Magnificent! The Clarity, Definition and Focus are Unmatched!
Make A Sound Decision.
Most people like music, but Grado PS500e headphones are too good for most people. Grado makes them for music connoisseurs. For the ones who anticipate Amy Winehouses 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.
"...It is as simple as this: They are fantastic, they kill everything below $1200 out there and come in at $600. I think you'd be crazy not to audition a pair." -George Walker Petit, SonicScoop
The PS500e is the younger brother to the PS1000e, with newly redesigned 44mm speaker and the improved 8 conductor cable design anda 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.

"From loud and raucous rock through pop and rap to classical, the PS500's produced every single track in stunning beauty. Every subtle nuance is reproduced in breath-taking clarity, even bringing out detail that you may not have heard in tracks before." -David Ludlow, expertreviews.com
"The PS 500s are more neutral and linear than any headphone I know of under $1000, and will please the audiophile and recording enthusiast alike. Combined with great clarity and neutrality, the result is just plain stunning...highly recommended." -Robert H. Levi, Positive Feedback Issue 57
"I have quite a variety of music tracks in Jazz, Classics, Opera, Rock, Blues, Country and other genres, and I've been running through the list for days to see what the PS-500 isn't a good match for. So far everything sounds good. Better than good, actually everything sounds alive." - Dale, Headfonics
