"In the category of musical neutrality for the picky audiophile and the demanding recording engineer, the PS 500s are unsurpassed at this price point."
"As an audiophile friend of mine said when he heard the 500s compared to a mountain of other cans, "these are great headphones." Yes, my friends, the PS500s are great headphones, and most highly recommended."

"I like a lot of headphones. I love the Grado PS-500. It makes music sound right."
"I have quite a variety of music tracks in Jazz, Classics, Opera, Rock, Blues, Country and other genres, and I've been running through the list for days to see what the PS-500 isn't a good match for. So far everything sounds good. Better than good, actually everything sounds alive."

"Well, the sound is magnificent. Clarity, definition and focus are outstanding, the low end is tight and right and the highs don't fatigue or make you blink with pain. At any level they speak clearly and with authority. I was pretty impressed, pretty fast."
"I took my pair out to a recording session in LA and asked the entire band and the assistant engineers to try them. They were ALL blown away, and then I took the 500's to a jazz session in NYC and asked the acoustic bassist, Phil Palombi, to give them a go.? He wants a pair."
