New Grado owner here.. OK.. not so new, had the 60i/80i years ago but quickly moved on.

 

I've had the PS500 for about 4 days now and have been running them in pretty much 7x24. Being the HeadFi convert that I am, I have (and had) a few pretty decent range of DACs and amplifiers ranging from the Audioquest Dragonfly 1.2, Schiit Vali and the Naim DAC-V1.  Given that, I like the PS500 best running straight out of my MacBook Air and my iPad Mini the best.. no fancy or even entry level DACs and/or amplifiers.. just naked right straight out of my various devices.  How blasphemous is that??:blink:

 

I'm really enjoying the PS500 so far.. I think I'll crown them the Anti-HeadFi headphones!

 

But keeping in the tradition of HeadFi fanaticism, I have already found Martin Custom Audio.. how 'bout some aluminum gimbals/rodblocks and a custom cable job. :veryevil:

 

Glad to be part of the club.  Impression and review to come in about a month. I've already been asked how they compare to the HD800 and they're a totally different beast with a different use case for me.  Doesn't mean that I can't enjoy both.. I already am!

congrats, and welcome back/aboard !! the 500 is awesome indeed !!

i'm not speaking for everyone, but i bet most of the others here will agree, if it sounds good to you, if you enjoy your music out of "it" whatever it is, that is the most important thing !! enjoy

I have a very silly question:

Is there a way to "waterproof/dustproof" the PS-1000? These are my portable headphones, and i'm looking for a sort of "breathing" cover/bag so that i can use them, airflow not very impacted, in very light drizzle.

Whoops, missed that part.

Well
1. I think you're off your rocker for having those as portable cans. smily_headphones1.gif

2. What about something like saran wrap or cheesecloth?

1: you're probably absolutely right. But man they sound so well.

2: saran wrap is a no-go, it will close off all openness.
Cheese cloth has the problem that it soaks up water.

It seems i need to go DIY for this.

I once saw on (Tech Toys), which is a TV show were they show the latest/greatest gadgets, there is a company that will waterproof any electronic device, they actually submerged A cell phone in water after applying there waterproofing technology and nothing happen to it. I don't know the name of the company, but I'm sure if you do some research you will find it, and I'm sure it is a bit costly.
