Amictus , thanks so much for your thoughts. And linking some others that might have a 500 vs 500e comparison. In reading some 500e reviews, it seems like the 500 had more bass, I was actually pleased with the 500e, I am thinking that I might be best to hold off and just get what I know (500e) then jump on the chance to have one and regret it.

Check out @ruthieandjohn signature…I believe he has a comparison chart which includes both.

Unfortunately I've never heard either of the PS500 series.

Hi James,

I have a PS500 and heard a PS500e once so don't put too much weight on my thoughts.  The 500e had a more balanced sound signature and the highs are a bit smoother to me but the 500 is a little more engaging with the slight treble bite for the genres I like to listen to when using a Grado.  I get the better balanced sound signature with a Ypsilon S2 or Nhoord Red V2 so the PS500e is not something I would get at this time.

I've had both the PS500 and PS500e in the past, but it's been quite a long while since I had either one. I remember thinking the PS500e was very close to the GH-1 although i don't think I had them at the same time to compare them side by side.

I never owned the original PS500 but did audition for awhile the PS500e and thought it sounded very thin/bright.

I returned the PS500e and bought the 325e and feel it portrays a much better overall bass/mid/treble.

Hoping to own the RS2e someday.

How interesting is this hobby that we all hear so differently, for me the 325e was the thin/bright sounding one and the PS-500e was the better balanced sound signature.  RS2e is still my favorite Grado and is the only one that I haven't modded, yet.  Some day I will make the cables removable, the 8 wire cable is just too heavy for such a light headphone.

You can't go wrong with either version ps500 imo. Both are great!
