Mine sound so different from any other Grado I've tried... I just love them. That being said, I have not tasted the rarified air of the HP1/HP2/PS1.

They're quite limited, and just sound different. The people who have them tend to keep them, and that's always a good sign.

Your HP2 is your cash reserve fund.  If you come into a serious need for some money, you can just list those for sale.  I'm quite sure they appreciate a bit over time as they are rare to come by.

Yes, especially when you consider that I just paid $350 for my HP1000, obviously, the seller didn't know how much they were worth.

Wow.....nice haul!

 

You should be very stoked, indeed.

Please share the name and phone number of this individual.  I'd like to call them and see if any sales of audio gear are planned in the near future.  :D 

 

I'd probably like to get a 2-channel Bryston amp for $459 if he'd have such a piece available.  :wink_face:

Actually, I purchase them at an autorized Grado dealer, they were selling them as a favor for an old client of theirs who i'm guessing had bought them new at that same store almost 20 years before.

Oh, and a slight reading issue on my part.  I initially thought it was the PS-1000.  Still a good deal, though.

Yeah!, I think so too.

It's great to know that such dealers still exist today.

Just listed my HD800 for sale, the PS500 prevailed.  It's not technically on the same level of the HD800 but I enjoy listening to music more with the PS500 and that's what matters in the end.

Wow, that one heck of a statement!

 

for some of us, Grado really seems to do something right.  what is it about the PS500 that made it more enjoyable than the venerable HD800?

While my experience with non grados is limited, Grados headphones just let me connect to the music, specs be damned!
On another thread, we were talking about the hrt microstreamer, and how it had soul, grados have soul, its that thing that can't be measured , but just has me smiling, grooving !

I think the main thing I like about the PS500 is it just lets you forget about the hardware and experience the music.  With the HD800 I'm constantly analyzing the music and hardware.  I also like to listen at lower volumes (65 - 75 dB) and the HD800 doesn't start to really shine until it's around 80 dB or louder to my ears.
