Grado GS1000E Statement Headphones
Flagship of the handcrafted, carved mahogany series of headphones, the GS1000 'Statement' is capable of delivering truly stunning sonic performances.
This superb headphone features; handcrafted, over-sized, mahogany earpieces made using an intricate curing process, which enables Grado to optimise the tonal quality. The GS1000 also uses new upgraded dynamic transducers and the new 8 conductor cable design.
The headphones cushion design actually creates a "room" for the ears to sit, creating a larger soundstage and greater spatial experience for the listener. It was most important to design the correct balance between the driver and the wooden housing, to ensure the resulting sound was precisely what Grado wanted
This has clearly been accomplished. By creating this "room" for the ears to sit, positioning of the cushions with regards to the ears (i.e., forward or back) is somewhat critical in finding the absolute sweet spot.
With this cushion design, we believe the GS1000 to be one of the most comfortable headphones on the market today.
