I am a previous owner of the Grado PS500.  It's been a few years however, but I just picked up the new PS500e.. I think I may have gotten a bad set... Or at least I hope. They are very congested and buzzy... On bass guitar notes they seem to get in the way of themselves.. I remember my old PS500 version was so clean and clear.. Any comments here on owners..
Not a big deal to exchange them as I bought them from a good online retailer.

Mine definitely don't sound congested or buzzy. If anything they are more neutral and spacious than the old one - at least to these ears. Might be worth exchanging them as that doesn't sound right to me.

I hope you sent them back.
 
I have been puzzling about buying the SR325e, RS2e, or the PS500e, for quite a long time. I would be hoping the PS500e would be crystal clear and very musical. Not buzzy....Ouch.

In my opinion the SR325e, and the PS500e, sit at both extremitys of the Grado line. The SR325e is the brightest sounding, while the PS500e have a rolled off treble, so I find it surprising that you're considering both.
