  • 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.  Design : As shiny and good as the picture might look, these headphones, IMO, look pretty ugly, I won't consider that much of a problem since I usually only use open headphones at home. Comfort : Not too bad, the clamp is not too strong and it stays on my head quite well.
  • Pros: Exciting, Easy to drive, Sound has texture
  • Cons: Minimal Soundstage, REALLY FORWARD(I like it though)

  • Summary: The Grado PS-500 has a very smooth, even, and detailed sound from the lower mids on up, having only the lower-mids/upper bass emphasis of about 4 db to add warmth to the sound. The standout character of the PS-500 is the amazing realism of instrument tonalities. The price seemed high for what I expected to get, but having used them, they are worth it. The 'Y' connector is not the best for convenience, but I feel it is the right design for best sound quality.

Super outil audiophile

  • Summary: Le look et la qualité de finition peuvent laisser sur sa faim, c'est affaire de goût et de rapport qualité/prix. L'entourage alu extérieur aurait pu notamment recevoir une sérigraphie digne de ce nom et s’avère être sensible au choc(ne pas laisser tomber !), le casque étant solide par-ailleurs; Comme le serrage n'est pas trop important, un usage nomade n'est pas trop conseillé. c'est bien tout le mal que l'on peut en dire,car pour le son c'est renversant !
