Grado

Grado Labs is a Brooklyn based company that hand makes headphones and cartridges. Family run since 1953, Grado has seen three generations: Joseph, John, and Jonathan Grado. As Ars Technica says, “…on a quiet street in south Brooklyn is a manufacturing operation that produces some of the most renowned headphones… it’s just the Grados in their narrow townhouse making the little-known, well-loved line of headphones.”

Grado Labs Statement Series GS1000e Headphones

The GS1000e retains a sound that is pure Grado, with warm harmonic colors, 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.

Grado Labs Prestige Series SR225e Headphones

The SR225e headphones have a sizable rear air flow through a metal screen, while utilizing Grado’s larger ear cushion and closely matched drivers. The result is a broad soundstage free from colorations. The way the new driver, cable and plastic housing move air and react to sound vibrations is virtually unaffected by transient distortions.
