Clearity and purity all in one
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Beautiful set of Grados for your human set of ears is boldly on display for the PS500e's. Construction is first rate and the sound quality is almost surreal as I put them on the first time plugging them into an older Sony Cd player with no depth control of bass or treble and just listened for an hour to some blazing rock n roll courtesy of the recently and most sadly deceased Mr. Bowie. There is an instant capture so amazingly even that I sat up and took notice. Sound is pure and yet even had a distinct enhanced quality that didnt seem to be coming from the cd. Just an impressioned density that played me like I was playing them. Not to sound too abstract but the music took on an extra edge of layers that I found really most delightful. Coolness factor is off the scales as they are silvery bliss and I find myself reaching for them more often than not from my half dozen sets of phones that I prize most deliciously. I have a variety of amplifiers, mixers and equalizers at my disposal and it always does amaze me how every set of headphones sounds different with each different source but it is the world of hifi and I love that factor hands down. Comfort is my only real negative and that is a personal thing as I just really enjoy my ear totally enveloped, encircled and enclosed. But the sound is the key here. These are great headphones and I fully commend the fine folks at Grado for their stellar attention to detail and in this pri
Pros: Build, layered sound most amazing and an attractive quality makes them a truly fine bit of brain candy for the demanding skull within us all.
Cons: For Me ....ON the ear fit is a trifle uncomfortable. But a personal thing it is.
