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.
New Flagship Headphone: The Grado PS2000e over-ear headphones are the
new flagship from Grado Labs. They have an open back design,
with a hand-carved, maple inner chamber, covered by a
new Smoked Chrome finish. Grado first used maple in its GH1 limited edition
headphones for its excellent sonic signature and its desired response. Wrapping
the wood with a metal alloy eliminates ringing in the chamber and other unwanted
resonances. The headphones also sport a new wider (2-3/16") leather head strap
with additional padding that provides more comfort during long listening
Drivers: The PS2000e feature all-new 50mm drivers, built
with the highest grade wire, voice coils, and magnets. The front cap and grille
for the new driver was redesigned to minimize diffractions, so only the signal
comes through. The drivers in the PS2000e are matched to within 0.05dB for
optimum stereo imaging and a wider sound stage.
12-Conductor UHPLC Cable: The PS2000e has a high-quality 78"
UHPLC (Ultra-High Purity, Long Crystal) audio cable with a 6.5mm (1/4")
gold-plated plug. UHPLC copper exhibits
greater stability and 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.
