Metal meets maple in our new flagship headphone, the PS2000e. This is simply the best headphone we have ever produced and, perhaps, the best in the world. Three generations of the Grado family contributed to its development, which took almost 2 years. Speaking from more than six decades of audio experience... we got it right.
The genius concept of using maple wood for the sound chamber mixed with metal creates a totally unique sound that will please many audiophiles.
With the PS2000e nothing gets hot or distorted and their ability to scale with volume while maintaining their quality of reproduction is a feat of engineering.
When I watched the remastered Woodstock Blu-ray with the PS2000e, the sound was so realistic. I heard microphone levels coming up and down, and the mix of stage sound and crowd ambience was truly thrilling.
The hand-carved maple inner chamber is clad with our new Smoked Chrome finish for an elegant look. A wider leather head-strap with added padding make for a more comfortable experience. Both are exclusive to the PS2000e.
The unexcelled sonic signature of Maple, first used in our limited edition GH1, deliver a unique desired response. Cladding the wood with metal alloy eliminates ringing and other unwanted distortions. The PS2000e uses a new driver design that also minimizes signal colorations for un-obscured detail in your music.
To build our finest headphone yet, you can trust that we used all the best stuff. From the speaker chassis, to the wire, voice coil and magnets, we researched and selected materials of the highest grade. Our diaphragm geometry was redesigned to more accurately convey the signal into music. Developing the new front cap and grill for the new driver resulted in minimized diffractions of the signal emitting from the diaphragm. All this is mounted in a proprietary hybrid housing which gives the driver the utmost support and eliminates distortion and resonance, allowing only the actual signal to come through.
Close your eyes and hear the music like never before, as only a dynamic driver can produce. The PS2000e ‘sound stage’ is immense and you will enjoy the space and placement of each individual musician. If the artist performed it, and the engineer captured it on the recording, you will hear it.
The PS2000e retains the world famous Grado signature sound, and takes it to a new level of refinement. Be transported. Be Grado.
While the competition may generate a false sense of dimensionality or soften an aggressive balance, that’s not the way of the PS2000e. In this sense the Grado is like an incisive studio-monitor loudspeaker, capable of the full expression of what went on the disc without coloration.
