Grado PS1000

 

Grado is one of America's oldest hi-fi companies. In the 1950s it manufactured phono cartridges, turntables, and speakers. While Grado still makes a full line of highly regarded cartridges (budget-priced all the way up to high-end models), it's perhaps...

Grado's most comfortable over-the-ear headphones sound great at home and with iPods; beautifully crafted wood and solid metal earcups; stellar build quality; includes 15-foot extension cable and phono-to-miniplug adapter.

Extremely expensive; doesn't include travel bag or storage case.

They may cost as much as a big-screen TV, but the PS1000s are simply the best-sounding, most comfortable, and best-looking Grado headphones we've ever tested.

Grado PS1000 Headphones (Playback 25)

 

Which I thought were exceptionally good headphones, I was thrilled when Grado offered a chance to review their maximum supreme PS1000 headphone ($1695). Given what Grado does at the $300 price point, I was curious in this review to see what they could...

Amps, Preamps, etc

"Punchy,Dynamic,Crystal Clear"

 

One of the best headphone to listen Rock, Metal, Jazz, and orchestra!

Punchy and tight bass, Detail mid, Extreme crisp High

Lack of sub bass, Little bit laid back mid, some might find it too harsh

"These are the best headphones I've ever bought!"

 

I got my tax return early and picked these up along with a new-to-me Schiit Valhalla. I got them as an upgrade to my current BeyerDynamics DT-880's and HeadRoom Desktop Amp. I let them burn in for about 20 hours. I found the Grado's to have a really...

- Big sound stage

- I can't take them on BART for fear of getting jacked.

"Superb sound quality like this comes at a price."

 

The performance of my PS1000 headset is truly remarkable. In my opinion and auditory tastes, it's ousted my Senn HD-800 as the best-sounding set of cans that I own. But to be honest I would still have been more than happy and quite content with the...

Simply sublime audio performance, with detail, textures and nuances that I've never experienced from a set of cans. Solid build and material quality, though not sure it's THAT special at this price point.

Better comfort, than before but still fatiguing over time like previous Grado sets I've tried and owned. Steep price of admission; my charge card is still simmering over this adventure. A bit of buyer's remorse since I already own the Senn HD-800.

"BEST...SOUND QUALITY...EVER"

 

Gloooooooood

These have surround sound speaker like volume and smoothness in headphones! Comfortable and really fun to listen to music on.

Cost removes 1 whole star. 1700 bucks!
