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 Wonderful Headphones October 19, 2020
Reviewer: DS from United States  
Been enjoying them since they arrived.  They are definitely opening up as I put hours on them.  Looking forward to that 100h mark.  Using with Lyr 3 and HP8m2.  Both very different but very pleasing.  They handle everything from Wagner to Willie Nelson.  Very musical and non-fatiguing. No regrets here.

5 of 5 Gotta give them five stars October 4, 2020
Reviewer: Brian Moss from Oakland, CA United States  
Stunning sound, there are lots of expensive head phones out there. But very few answer the question, would I mix with them? I would say yes to the ps2000e’s.

5 of 5 My 3rd Pair of Grado Headphones August 30, 2020
Reviewer: EEWdad from Snohomish, WA United States  
I own a pair of Grado SR325e and RS1e - I do admit:  I like the "Grado sound."  

I was nervous about making the leap to the PS2000e. Would there really be enough performance to justify the significant jump in expense?

I can tell you,  for me, they are worthy of the additional cost. Ordered with 4-pin XLR termination, I use them with a balanced tube headphone amp (also made in NY). I am thoroughly enjoying them.  Terrific bass extension, well-resolved mid-range and highs - consistent with the "Grado sound" of my two previous Grado models - just really expanded and magnified. Everything I've read about these presenting a truly expansive sound stage is true.

I've listened to a variety of sources: analog (vinyl), DSD 2.8 & 5.6, 192KHz/24bit down to CD quality 44.1KHz/16bit -- it's like hearing them all for the first time again.

I'm all over the place musically: classic & album rock, smooth  & fusion jazz, pop, electronic -- all come through impressively. What a treat --

5 of 5 These headphones are marvelous! August 1, 2020
Reviewer: Jordan Strong from Honolulu, HI United States  
I wish that I could write as magnificent a review as I have seen other reviewers write, but I lack the headphone and musical knowhow that others have.

As a layman that listens to music, watches anime and Netflix shows, and plays video games, I have found that absolutely everything sounds fantastic while using these headphones. They are expensive, but they are worth every penny.

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!
