Metal meets maple in our new flagship headphone, the PS2000e. This is simply the best headphone we have ever produced and, perhaps, the best in the world. Three generations of the Grado family contributed to its development, which took almost 2 years. Speaking from more than six decades  of audio experience... we got it right.

"The genius concept of using maple wood for the sound chamber mixed with metal creates a totally unique sound that will please many audiophiles."

-Major HiFi, Steven Newcastle

"With the PS2000e nothing gets hot or distorted and their ability to scale with volume while maintaining their quality of reproduction is a feat of engineering."

-Gear Patrol, Tucker Bowe

"When I watched the remastered Woodstock Blu-ray with the PS2000e, the sound was so realistic. I heard microphone levels coming up and down, and the mix of stage sound and crowd ambience was truly thrilling."

-Sound&Vision, Steve Gutenberg

"While the competition may generate a false sense of dimensionality or soften an aggressive balance, that’s not the way of the PS2000e. In this sense the Grado is like an incisive studio-monitor loudspeaker, capable of the full expression of what went on the disc without coloration."

-The Absolute Sound, Neil Gader
