The GS3000e is the finest wooden headphone Grado Labs has built to date. Using Cocobolo for the first time in a large-body housing, this Grado headphone has some of the richest sound they have ever produced.
Cocobolo is found in Central America, and just like the music there, is teeming with texture and emotion. What was discovered from using this wood in the GH2 and the flagship phono cartridge siblings, the Epoch and Aeon, has been brought over to the Statement Series process for the first time. This is the fullest single body of Cocobolo Grado have ever built, and the GS3000e is the perfect fit for it.
Being the first Statement Series headphone to use Cocobolo, Grado carefully tuned our 50mm signature drivers to not only take advantage of the larger soundstage, but to also embrace the deep and impactful musical character of this unique wood. Cocobolo continues to be one of the family’s favourite woods to work with.
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”.
The Sound Of Wood
Wood creates an incredibly unique soundscape, and Grado has been hand building with it for decades.
Working hand-in-hand with the extra large cushions, these larger drivers use the housing to expand the sound to new depths.
