Constructed from an exquisite combination of wood and metal, the hybrid design of PS1000e ensures that the earphone chamber has no ringing to obscure detail or add coloration. The way the wood and metal housing moves air and reacts to sound vibrations is virtually unaffected by transient distortions.
An inner sleeve of hand-crafted mahogany is made using the new series "e" curing process, whilst the outer housing is machined from aluminium then chrome-plated via a special processing and casting method to increase the porosity of the alloy.
Grado has also designed the PS1000e cable; a twelve-conductor design using UHPLC (Ultra-High Purity, Long Crystal) copper, which improves control and stability of the total range of the frequency spectrum.
A new 50mm driver plus a newly re-configured voice coil and diaphragm design results in unsurpassed speed and accuracy responses.
The cushion design makes the PS1000e one of the most comfortable headphones in the world, creating the correct balance between the driver and housing to support the desired musicality.
Grado Labs have taken all of their knowledge and over sixty years of experience and put them into one of their finest headphones ever – listen and enjoy.
