The large chambers fit around your ears, not on top of them, creating a private listening booth. Air flows with the music to keep you comfortable while marvelling at the clarity and range. Grado's select Mahogany tone-woods are hand matched for aesthetic beauty, just as the phenomenal drivers are individually matched for sonic consistency.
The hand-crafted mahogany earpieces utilise an intricate curing process that optimises the tonal quality while giving them a new look. The GS1000e uses 50mm dynamic transducers and the new 12 conductor cable design. The wood, driver, and cable designs, result in tight control and stability of the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum to support the GS1000e's world renowned midrange. Grado's GS1000e cushion design actually creates a 'room' for the ears to sit, with a larger soundstage and greater spatial experience for the listener.
It was most important for Grado to design the correct balance between the driver and the wooden driver housing to give us the pure sound we crave. Grado believe the GS1000e are one of the most comfortable headphones on the market today. The GS1000e retains a sound that is pure Grado, with warm harmonic colours, rich full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics, and an ultra-smooth top end. The presentation is very detailed, the bass is deep, and the music is very tight while non-fatiguing. All with stunning separation and layering of the music.
The welcoming sound of these mahogany headphones is what started Grado's love for building with wood. These smaller body wooden pairs are hand-built with drivers specifically tuned for mahogany.
Full Bodied Warmth
Warm, embracing, and robust, see why Details Magazine called these “One of the six great indulgences of the world”.
Working hand-in-hand with the extra large cushions, these larger drivers use the housing to expand the sound to new depths.
The Sound Of Wood
Wood creates an incredibly unique soundscape, and Grado has been hand building with it for decades.
