Grado PS-1

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Anyone still using these?

 

Still my favourite 'modern' Grado

post #2 of 11

i had a balanced PS1 for a while and definitely preferred it over the other premier bass-heavy headphone - the L3000. it's a solid headphone with great bass and good resolution but comes at a price. if you love the grado sound (upfront and a bit shouty) then the PS1 along with an HP1000 is definitely one to try.

I have one but it's fitted with HP-1000 drivers.

 

Use it all the time.

Did the original PS-1 drivers die or you just decided to put HP-1000 drivers in them?

Someone else had an interesting hybrid HP-2 also...

I purchased them from someone who had an empty PS-1 shell and frame and spare HP-1000 drivers.

 How do they sound balanced out of the BA. Also how did they sound single ended compared to balanced.

how do you find changing to bagel pads affects the sound? i'd be concerned that it could screw it  up, having heard them with the standard bowl pads and with flats - it's a sweet can!

 

why do think mr. grado isn't happy with it? John moves on when he's done with a design. it was a limited edition phone made to spec for a german distributor. iirc, ttvj had a few of them for usa distribution.

As I got a big ear, it is seem that the GSK pad havn't got huge negative on PS1, but also don't help the sound stage. Just for better comfont~~. It is ture that the details maybe lost a bit compare to bowl pad, but it is really not a big differnet that I will not notice on the normal listening.

 

I think Mr Grado aren't so happy with PS1 as Mr. Grado don't talk on PS1 on public interview, esp before the PSK release. It is not really Mr. Grado don't like the sound of PS1, I think, but the other problem.
