  • 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. Suffice to say that they are the most satisfying listen of all the headphones I own or have owned. Check my profile if you are interested in my many points of reference.
  • Pros: Soundstage, tonality, verve
  • Cons: Floppy and awkward

  • 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. At $1600, the Grado PS1000 is one of the most expensive flagships currently available, and I really don’t see a need for a formal or well thought out introduction, as I’m sure most of you just want to know what’s the stuff with the PS1000’s.
  • Pros: Detailed Spectrum - Realistic Imaging - Bass Quality & Depth - Extended Highs - Warm Midrange
  • Cons: Choice Materials - Can Be Overly Bright - Too Forward - Bass Surge Isn't Enough

  • Summary: Introduction:-   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 any Head-Fier decides to take a leap into the world of flagship ownership.
  • 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.

Zero shock and awe, just simple music

Mr. K. Hubbard "kevinatkhco", Amazon

  • Summary: Just taken delivery of a pair of Grado PS1000 headphones, so this is purely my initial impressions ... there is no shock and awe with these 'phones, they just present music as the sound mastering, musicians and producers wanted. Take The Dandy Warhols ... typical dense wall of sound stuff, but, through these masterful 'phones, you enter a wide wide WIDE universe where each line of the music is unpicked, to hang there shimmering in the vast open spaces of silence ...

The Sound Of Heaven

J. Highton "Jonboy", Amazon
7 June 2012
  • Summary: Ok, I like and collect headphones, earphones and various other headphone peripherals such as amps and DACS. Though I have a seperate Hi Fi set up I tend to do most of my listening using headphones via an iPod Classic, lossless files, digital signal through a Cypher Labs Algorythm Solo DAC and various portable headphone amps. Favourite earphones are currently Westone 4R and favourite headphones a tie with Grado GS1000i and Sennheiser HD 800. Until now that is.

Disappointed

  • Summary: i was looking for a cheap pair of headphones so i clicked these and sent off for them. When they arrived i played them straight away and i guess there okay for a budget pair but you can tell they are not expensive . I keep them up loft for spares incase my other headphones break but i wouldn't recommend these if looking for good value,,there as good as you pay for them,cheap but i guess they do there job.

  • Excerpt: Юзаю больше полугода, с СД и винилом. Рок, диско, прогрессив, джазрок, нескончаемым водопадом одни положительные эмоции...
  • Pros: Супер качество звука, максимально приближены к звучанию стационарной акустики, то бишь колонок.
  • Cons: Нет.

Superbe

20 September 2011
  • Summary: Possesseur de l'excellent Sony MRD CD 3000, je lui ai longtemps cherché un remplaçant, car il n'est plus tout jeune et sa finition se dégrade dans le temps. Le senheiser HD650 n'était pas à la hauteur, l'ultrasone édition 10 m'a complétement déçu, le grado PS 1000 m'a conquis. Grave majestueux et solide qui peut parfois se montrer exhubérant, médium qui offre une lisibilité et une densité hors pair, seul l'aigu semble accuser une petite remontée vers les 4Khz et n'est...
