Description
Grado is proud to introduce the new flagship of their headphone line, the PS1000. This hybrid design has an inner sleeve of a selected species of hand-crafted mahogany made by using an intricate curing process. Its outer housing of metal machined from a special non-resonant, very hard metal alloy utilizes a special processing and casting method to increase the porosity of the alloy. This combination of wood and metal insures that the earphone chamber has no ringing which might obscure detail or add coloration. The way the wood and metal housing moves air and reacts to sound vibrations is now virtually unaffected by transient distortions. Grado has also designed a new cable for the PS1000. The new eight-conductor cable design, utilizing UHPLC (ultra-high purity, long crystal) copper, improves control and stability of the total range of the frequency spectrum. The PS1000 also utilizes a newly re-configured voice coil and diaphragm design, resulting in unsurpassed speed and accuracy response. The cushion design creates the correct balance between the driver and hybrid housing to give the resulting musicality desired. The cushion design also makes the PS1000 one of the most comfortable to wear headphones in the world. Grado has taken all their knowledge and years of experience in controlling resonances and eliminating distortions and this has culminated in the development of their finest headphone ever, the PS1000.

Grado PS1000
3.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Dec 5, 2009

Introduced in March 2009, the PS1000 is the second high end circumaural headphone, and current flagship from Grado Labs. Featuring the same oversized pads and body design as the previous flagship the GS1000, the PS1000 features an enclosure with a metal exterior and a wooden interior for the combined qualities both materials exert on the sound signature. Considered by the majority of those lucky enough to hear them to be the best Grado has designed (including such rarities as the PS1 and HP-1000). The PS1000 also feature a price tag to match. At $1650, the PS1000 match other high end flagship headphones such as the HD800. ... PROS: (1) comfortable circum-aural pads (2) distinctive Grado aesthetic (3) more refined sound than any previous Grado headphone ... CONS: (1) very expensive (2) heavier and larger than the GS1000, RS1 etc...
