Grado is proud to introduce the PS1000e, unquestionably their best ever headphone. The previous model, the PS1000i, was acclaimed by many as the best headphones in the world, and the new "e" version only improves on what they had!
By using tone-wood clad with metal alloy we’ve obliterated two of the most vexing issues in headphone design: ringing in the chamber, and transient distortion. This gives audio professionals the security of consistent response throughout the frequency range. Did we mention they look awesome? You could pay more for headphones, but you can’t afford anything less.
This hybrid design has an inner sleeve of hand-crafted mahogany made by using the new series 'e' curing process. Its outer housing, machined from chrome-plated aluminium, utilises 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 virtually unaffected by transient distortions. Grado has also designed the cable for the PS1000e; the twelve-conductor cable design uses UHPLC (Ultra-High Purity, Long Crystal) copper, improves control and stability of the total range of the frequency spectrum. The PS1000e also has a new 50mm driver and a newly re-configured voice coil and diaphragm design, resulting in unsurpassed speed and accuracy responses.
The cushion design creates the correct balance between the driver and housing to support the desired musicality. The cushion design also makes the PS1000e one of the most comfortable headphones in the world.
The PS1000e 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.
