Grado PS500

 

A third the price of the exceptional Grado PS1000, these headphones deliver more than 1/3 the performance.

Exceptional sound quality, Competitvely priced for their sound quality, Solidly built, Open-back design creates open, spacious sound

On-ear design becomes uncomfortable, Headband lacks padding, Not exactly stylish, Open-back design means you need a quiet enviroment to listen
