Family-owned Grado has been designing and making headphones and cartridges since 1953. After almost two years of development, the Brooklyn-based company finally launches its new flagship headphone, the PS2000e. With three generations of the Grado family contributing to the design and build, the headphones represent the culmination of years of experience and dedication to excellence. Consequently, the headphones impress on all accounts.
PS2000e features a hand-carved maple chamber that delivers an unparalleled sonic signature. Metal alloy cladding minimizes distortions, while a new driver design ensures superior sound clarity. Other components include a proprietary hybrid housing and new front cap and grill for the driver as well as a premium quality speaker chassis, voice coil and magnets. In terms of comfort, PS2000e comes with an extra-wide leather head-strap that also boasts soft padding.
