  • Summary: I'm not an experienced audiophile, so i'll make it short.  The PS500 is really easy to drive, you can plug it into your ipod with an adapter and it'll still sound audiophile level, but an amp does help.
  • Pros: Exciting, Easy to drive, Sound has texture
  • Cons: Minimal Soundstage, REALLY FORWARD(I like it though)

  • Summary: Sorry... headphone display stand shown in this Grado Labs photo was somehow missing from my PS500 headphone box!   Since my first revelation into "good" headphones was via my Sennheiser HD 598s, which introduced me to great soundstage, imaging, and comfort, I was looking for something that moved...
  • Pros: Excellent presence; well-defined bass; well-driven by iPod; needs no amp.
  • Cons: On-ear pads somewhat tight; heavy long cord with 1/4" plug outweighs iPod & requires adapter

How To Spend It
3 May 2012
  • Summary: Grado of Brooklyn, New York, is one of the world’s best headphone makers. This, its new PS500 model, is at the lower end of the range, and it is astonishing. The clarity, detail and heft of what you hear belies the fact that these are headphones and not loudspeakers.

  • Summary: A third the price of the exceptional Grado PS1000, these headphones deliver more than 1/3 the performance.
  • Pros: Exceptional sound quality, Competitvely priced for their sound quality, Solidly built, Open-back design creates open, spacious sound
  • Cons: On-ear design becomes uncomfortable, Headband lacks padding, Not exactly stylish, Open-back design means you need a quiet enviroment to listen.

Grado Labs PS500

  • Summary: Den Grado PS500darf man nicht nach seiner äußeren Erscheinung beurteilen. Die Verarbeitungsqualität ist – sagen wir – „amerikanisch“. Klanglich überzeugt er auf der ganzen Linie und wird durch seine Abstimmung dem Anspruch, professionelles Arbeitsgerät zu sein, absolut gerecht.

  • Excerpt: Skønt de naturligvis passer andre også. F.eks. alle dem, der har brig for et lytteinstrument til at tjekke studieindspilninger. Til kritisk lytning, men også til ren afslapning i nærmeste lænestol.
  • Cons: Høj pris, Ukomfortable ørepuder

  • Summary: Grado PS 500 dają niesamowitą przyjemność ze słuchania. W połączeniu z firmowym RA1 wyznaczają poziom, do którego zbliża się niewiele konstrukcji w świecie, a już z pewnością nie za takie pieniądze.
