The Grado PS1000e Professional Headphones [$1700] are touted as the best headphones in the world. Costing 17 Benjamins, they had better be. Grado makes their headphones by hand. By using tone-wood clad with metal alloy they’ve  decimated  the two most vexing problems with headphone design: chamber ringing, and transient distortion (We all hate transient distortion). This gives audio pros the security of consistent response throughout the frequency range. Did we mention they look awesome?
