e series: The Grado e series represents the company's third
generation of headphones. Every aspect of the headphones; the drivers, cable, plug, even the
glue; has been upgraded for better sound quality and dynamics. As in the
previous series, the e series headphones are all made by hand at
the Grado Lab facility in Brooklyn, NY.
Professional Series: Grado's Professional Series of headphones
feature real Mahogany wood, covered by aluminum (powder-coated or
chrome-plated), to create a hybrid air chamber. The Mahogany undergoes a proprietary curing process to
enhance its natural tone properties. Because wood is subject to variations in
density, the curing process ensures consistency of the signature Grado sound.
The Grado Labs use Rhodium, the most expensive precious metal on earth, to
prevent corrosion on the connectors. New driver cones and voice coil have been
fine-tuned to be consistent throughout the frequency range.
PS1000e: The Grado PS1000e over-ear headphones are the
flagship of the Grado line. They have an open back design,
with a hand-crafted, real Mahogany wood inner sleeve, and covered by a
chrome-plated aluminum back. The natural wood, chrome-plated aluminum, and Grado Lab's
advance damping treatments, help control and dissipate ringing in the chamber,
and other unwanted resonances. The
headphones utilize UHPLC (Ultra-High Purity, Long Crystal) oxygen-free copper
voice coil wire and state-of-the-art driver design. The 50mm drivers in the
are matched to within 0.05dB for optimum stereo imaging. The headphones also
have a genuine top-grain leather padded head strap.
12-Conductor Audio Cable: The PS1000e has a high-quality 81"
audio cable with a 6.5mm (1/4") gold-plated plug. This new cable design exhibits
greater control over the entire frequency spectrum. The plug has a sturdy molded sleeve
with ample stress relief. Included in the box is a gold-plated, snap-on 6.5mm-to-3.5mm
Mini Adapter Cable that you can use with your portable audio components, and a
Note: The size of the 3.5mm plug sleeve may cause interference with
some smartphone cases.
Replaceable Cushions: The high-quality extra-large foam rubber
circum-aural ear cushions can be
removed for cleaning, if needed. If they show signs of wear, you can replace
them with the Grado
Replacement Cushion G.
Note: The headphone's ear cushions are not covered in the
manufacturer's one-year warranty.
