The PS500e is the younger brother to the PS1000e, with newly redesigned 44mm speaker, improved 8 conductor cable design, and a smaller metal and wood hybrid air chamber. 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.

It is a compact monitoring headphone that will put a smile on the face of the most demanding music professionals, as well as the most demanding audiophiles.

Make A Sound Decision

Most people like music, but Grado PS500e headphones are too good for most people. We make them for music connoisseurs. For the ones who anticipate Amy Winehouse’s 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."
