Overview

Grado PS1000e Headphones



The Grado PS1000e is the alleged “best headphone Grado has ever produced." That’s a hefty statement from Grado, and it’s no surprise – these puppies aren’t cheap. However, if we didn’'t deem them to be worth the cost, they wouldn’'t be on our website. Always a fan of the GS1000’e, I was ecstatic to try the PS1000’e hot off the belt. I must admit I was a bit skeptical about their claims that the PS1000’s are better than the GS model, because I’m a major fan of those, but wow – the Grado PS1000e phones emit a sound that is absolutely seductive in its quality. Music, even music of the punk or hard rock variety, sounds velvety smooth. You’ll pick up on musical notes you’'ve never heard before, even in the most familiar tunes.

Consistent with Grado’s trademark space age appearance, the PS1000e have the familiar gigantic cushy ear pads. Audiophiles generally enjoy this feature; style slaves typically do not. Then again, people more concerned with style than sound probably run for the hills after one glance at the steep price tag. These comfortable ear pieces actually play a role in performance. They hold the speakers further away from your ears, creating a sound stage that allows for actual surround sound. They have a combination metal alloy outer housing and wood inner housing for low resonance and vibration – in human speak this means they eliminate factors that could destroy the sound. I get chills every time I slip them on. The spouse is starting to get a little jealous. It’s ok though, our couch is comfortable...yeah...

The bad? Must I? I suppose I have to find something negative about them. They are a bit bulky, a somewhat obtrusive characteristic for people with smaller heads. However, when you’re entering musical Nirvana (perhaps listening to Nirvana?) this feature ceases to be a nuisance. These headphones were designed with the true, blue audiophile in mind, and every last detail caters to those needs. Are they for everyone? Not necessarily - this is a lot of money to pay for headphones if you don't appreciate and understand all the features. However, for the audiophile in search of the perfect pair of headphones, the Grado PS1000e headphones are the Holy Grail of audio equipment.

    I am using PS-1000 with the Cowon S-9 mp3, with it's BBE kicked up to 7, and mach bass all the way on 10. Running a Kimber kable mini to a Nuforce icon HDP DAC. My music downloads are 128. Some up to 320. I can hear background vocals and soft bass notes and bass tunes, on songs I have listen to for years and never heard before on old school Marantz, Infinity stuff, even with earlier Sennheiser's back in the 80's. I did however make one change to the PS-1000 that I read from a online review about swapping out the Grado cushions for the one of the Sennheiser cushions Item#019545 from their online store. They are yellow, and they fit perfect on the PS 1000. They bring the sound closer to the ear, which I like, and with the Cowon S9 you can adjust the stereo separation from a 1 to 6 increment. So with it on 6 wide its a awesome setup Pros: Cons:

    No, unfortunately - as authorized dealers - we are not allowed to ship Grado products outside the US. You can have it shipped to a friend or family member here in the USA and they would ship it to you.

    Tech Support answered:
    Both are excellent headphones in their own way. The HD800 is lighter than the PS1000 because it's made of plastic while the PS1000 has the metal housing. They are both open back models so they will "leak" sound and it will not isolate so well as closed back model would. But overall sound I prefer the PS1000. To my taste the HD800 lacks bottom.
