Grado PS2000e Flagship Headphones
Metal Meets MapleThe hand-carved maple inner chamber is clad with our new Smoked Chrome finish for an elegant look. A wider leather head-strap with added padding make for a more comfortable experience. Both are exclusive to the PS2000e.
The unexcelled sonic signature of Maple, first used in our limited edition GH1, deliver a unique desired response. Cladding the wood with metal alloy eliminates ringing and other unwanted distortions. The PS2000e uses a new driver design that also minimizes signal coloration for unobscured detail in your music.
To build our finest headphone yet, you can trust that we used all the best stuff. From the speaker chassis, to the wire, voice coil and magnets, we researched and selected materials of the highest grade. Our diaphragm geometry was redesigned to more accurately convey the signal into music. Developing the new front cap and grill for the new driver resulted in minimized diffractions of the signal emitting from the diaphragm. All this is mounted in a proprietary hybrid housing which gives the driver the utmost support and eliminates distortion and resonance, allowing only the actual signal to come through.
Close your eyes and hear the music like never before, as only a dynamic driver can produce. The PS2000e ‘sound stage’ is immense and you will enjoy the space and placement of each individual musician. If the artist performed it, and the engineer captured it on the recording, you will hear it.
Ratings & Reviews
Let the search end here.
Unless you want techno-bass exaggerated to vibrate the walls, these personal speakers do everything. Yes, the bass is both deep and extremely accurate - the snap, the tones & overtones, the attack/decay. Highs are wide open and sweet; Voices and other midrange parts are right there, holographically in front of you or off a bit where the microphone was in the studio. Grado has never marked their stuff up to impress the connoisseurs - they're reasonable next to the competition. Pure music, gripping and accurate and moving, without forcing it.
Feed them well
.....PS: they're not electrically hard to drive, but if you want to hear the benefit of a pair of cans this good, don't just plug them into your smartphone. Common sense says use a good DAC and amp - doesn't have to be world-beating, and even the DAC built into your iMac is pretty good, but a decent or better amp is necessary to supply both the extra bit of power and accuracy to control and bring out the dynamic abilities of these 'phones.

Great just great, awesome sound
The best that Ive heard
My Audeze LCD-3s, which Ive had for a few years (and I love by the way) had to go in for repair, soo... I bought these :)
Man, these sound great. Nothing really WARM about them. They sound so clear and real... in a good way, for certain. Like youre sitting at the mixing board in studio, or in the crowd, up close in a small venue. Brought life to some older records that I have around, made them sound like they were recent recordings, by real life people, if you know what I mean.
They are not bass heavy, more mid/high to my ear, and they get LOUD real quick, which was an adjustment from the LCD-3s, which I find to be quieter than Id like.
I didn't think it was going to possible for these to sound better than the Audeze, honestly. But they do. They sound DIFFERENT, but I prefer these, as I have them both around now.
I dont know, the LCD-3 are maybe like a really good Pixar movie, and The Grados are like another amazing Ken Burns documentary.
