Description Technical Specs

The new flagship of the Grado line, the PS2000e is here

Grado Labs is proud to introduce our new flagship headphone, the PS2000e. This is simply the best headphone we have ever produced and, in the opinion of many, the best headphone in the world. Developing the PS2000e has taken almost 2 years, on top of our 64 years of audio experience, but we wouldn't stop till we knew we had gotten it right.

The nuances of designing the driver for the PS2000e made the outcome more rewarding. We formulated the best material for the chassis of the speaker, and selected the finest wire to optimize the signal through the voice coil. Additional research went into the magnetic material for size and structure to best control the voice coil. The diaphragm geometry was advanced to properly convey the signal into music. Diffraction of the signal emitting from the diaphragm was minimized with a new front cap and grill design. All this is mounted in a proprietary hybrid housing which gives the driver the utmost support and eliminates distortion and resonance, allowing only the actual signal to come through.

You will hear your music like never before, as only a dynamic driver like the ones used in the best speaker systems, can produce. The sound stage is huge, while accurately representing the space between and placement of each individual musician and performer. You will hear the pages turning, toes tapping and performers' every breath. If it's in the recording the PS2000e will reproduce it. The PS2000e retains the world famous Grado signature sound, and takes it to a new level of refinement. With the PS2000e you can close your eyes and be transported to a live event without ever leaving your seat. A true ultimate experience.

5 of 5 Close to perfection July 9, 2019
Reviewer: Jeannot Welter from West Valley City, UT United States  
I have both the PS2000e and the GS2000e which I purchased to replace my old RS-1's. The PS2000e are better than the GS2000e in every aspect: resolution, soundstage, lack of any kind of distortion, dynamics, HF extension, bass extension, except one: midrange tonal balance. If Grado could now produce a pair of headphones combining the qualities of both the PS and the GS, that would be perfection... Or do I just have to wait until my PS2000e or completely broken in, difficult to say after about 20 hours of listening. Nonetheless thanks  Grado!

5 of 5 seem limitless June 23, 2018
Reviewer: Daniel Sapen from Huntington Station, NY United States  
All the virtues of the PS1000e - speed, clarity & realism, but with fuller, more elastic mids & bass. Hugely revealing, it conveys what feels like musical "intention", the playing-together sense of human beings grooving, in this place, in the present. Its virtues are equal between types of music

As for the last review - "People say" is automatically a cheap shot. I've heard scandalous reputations re some product, and somehow a single flaw, a glitch, needs to be ratified by an imaginary consensus of people who have  just "heard people say"; if one unit has a problem, does it downgrade the legacy of the whole company? Unfair. I've had five different models, 5 units, and they all remained sturdy & functional, when I DID want some elective work done by Grado, I was treated with respect and friendliness, and work was done well & promptly, along with a personal note. So, "People Say" Grado makes well-built products and offers first-rate customer service, like a good neighborhood shop.

3 of 5 The sound is lovely, but the manufacture is poor. April 19, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
The head beam fell apart on the second day I got the headphone...
... Now I know why people say Grado is the second worst headphone manufacturing brand.  (not complaining, people did say that, and their sound is a lot better than their quality control)
