Grado PS 500

Grado PS 500

 

Grado Labs takes “IP” learned from the development of the  State of the Art  PS1000 and  has applied  it to a form factor that is compact  resulting in the PS500. The PS500 creates  an articulate and dynamic musical presentation that will put a smile on the most demanding  sound professionals and music enthusiasts.

Each set of PS500 headphones is hand-crafted by Grado Labs in Brooklyn, New York. Its outer earcup housings are made of metal alloy, then fitted with an inner sleeve of specially cured mahogany wood. This combination of proprietary materials creates an air chamber that resists unwanted vibration, to ensure your sound remains unaffected by coloration and distortion. Like all Grado headphones, the PS500 uses a vented “open-air” earcup design with large, non-resonant air chambers for powerful, extended bass response and more open, spacious sound. The headphone’s wide frequency range ensures you’ll hear all of your music. Another nice touch is the genuine leather headband, which you can adjust for a custom fit.

Grado SR125i

Grado SR125

 

This terrific, high value headphone has received raves from reviewers worldwide, including Stereo Review Magazine:

“Still, in its own realm the Grado SR125 is a real winner and an excellent value. I cannot imagine a better sounding headphone at anywhere near its price. I do not, however, accept the premise that the use of UHPLC copper for the voice coil has the slightest bearing on the SR125′s superb sound. My hunch is that Grado simply knows how to design and build a first-rate headphone — good enough that, in comparison with most other high-end phones, its performance might almost be interpreted as magical.” —— Stereo Review
