Summary: The Grado PS1000 is considered one of the best headphones available in the headphone world and has been compared to the likes of the Sennheiser HD800, Beyerdynamic T1, the Audez’e LCD-3, and the HiFiMan HE-6.
Thought it was high time that someone populated at least one profile review concerning these
much maligned flagship cans from Grado.
The PS1000 ranks alongside the other two flagships from Audio Technica and Ultrasone
- the W5000 and Edition 10 as the three outsiders of choice when...
Pros: Majestic and very full sounding, sound stage depth unparalled, bass detail is one of the best
Cons: Weight, headband needs to be re-trimmed in the long term, distant sounding recordings will sound even more sucked out.
Summary: I'm not the reviewing type, but I wanted to make sure that these got another positive review. They have been, in my estimation, savagely and unfairly maligned on Head-Fi, mostly by people who have never owned them.
Summary: Why I spent so much time without testing any Grado ?
I don't know. I used to have 2 R10 in my collection, one TH900, one D7000, one D7100, Sony SA5000, MDR-CD3000, HD800...
I listened to the very best headphones on earth : Orpheus, Qualia 010, Abyss, Stax 009...etc.
Pros: Effortlessly dynamic, so easy to drive, Outstanding details, probably the deepest/cleanest bass you can find, look delicious, comfy...
Cons: I'm so in love that i'm obsessed by those cans.
Excerpt: , 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 deliver at 5X the price.
