Pair of Grado PS500E headphones, ex-demo, fully boxed, superb condition, HUGE SAVING! (£660 New)
Grado headphones are proud of their flagship professional headphones line. Using Grados rich heritage of headphone design that originated in Brooklyn, New York, this hybrid design has an inner sleeve of a selected species of hand-crafted mahogany made by using an intricate curing process. Its outer housing of metal machined from a special non-resonant, very hard metal alloy utilizes 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 now virtually unaffected by transient distortions. These really are the perfect headphones for audiophiles, with the products proving their worth of the rather large price tag.
The truly astounding PS500e delivers nearly all the sonic performance of the iconic, top-of-the-range PS1000e headset.
There is art in the heart and soul of every Grado product. The PS500e completely adheres to this convention by reproducing the full integrity and emotion of every musical performance.
Most people like music, but Grado PS500e headphones are too good for most people. Grado 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.
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. Both the hidden mahogany core and powder-coated aluminum housing parts undergo damping treatments. These processes help control and dissipate resonances, enabling the PS500e drivers to deliver an undistorted flow of the musical signal. The PS500e boasts an overall sound that is pure Grado, with warm harmonic colours, rich full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics, and an ultra-smooth top end. The PS500e is a compact monitoring tool that will put a smile on the face of demanding music professionals and the most discerning audiophiles.
