The PS500e is the younger brother to the PS1000e

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.

Recommendations

Drew Recommends the Black Dragon V2 Headphone Cable as the best upgrade for the Grado GS1000e headphone.

Best sounding headphone to date
The PS500e is the best sounding headphone I have ever purchased. Previous headphones have been the HD595, HE400 and DT880.

The DT880's are more comfortable and I prefer them for chamber music but for just about everything else I'm preferring the PS500e. Listening through a uberfrost DAC and Valhalla amp.

Service from Moon Audio was impeccable.

Much more than I was hoping for
Just plugged it in (with silver dragon v3 cables ) to my current NuForce HDP headphone amp- Grado PS 500 (gs1000 earpads).Was hoping for more detail but didn't expect a lot until I change the amp.

Well, I was blown away by the improvement!
