Description

Grado is proud to introduce the new PS1000e, unquestionably their best ever headphone and acclaimed by many as the best headphones in the world.

This hybrid design has an inner sleeve of a selected species of handcrafted mahogany, made by using an intricate curing process. Its outer housing of metal is machined from a special non-resonant, very hard metal alloy and 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. Grado has also designed a new cable for the PS1000e. The new eight-conductor cable design, utilizing UHPLC (ultra-high purity, long crystal) copper, improves control and stability across the entire audio spectrum. The PS1000 also utilizes a newly re-configured voice coil and diaphragm design, resulting in unsurpassed speed and accuracy of response. The cushion design creates the correct balance between the driver and hybrid housing to achieve the desired musicality. This cushion design also makes the PS1000 one of the most comfortable headphones to wear.

The PS1000 is the culmination of decades of Grado's knowledge and experience in controlling resonances and eliminating distortions. As with all Grado products the most important aspect is the sound. If you are a true music lover; one who will only be satisfied by the very best? The Grado PS1000e is your natural choice.

Listen, enjoy and agree.
