Classic tone woods (mahogany and maple) come together to create audio bliss in the new Grado flagship statement series, the Grado GS2000e. Built with the varying personality and resonance of wood types in mind, Grado has designed a truly unique sounding headphone.
The handcrafted mahogany and maple merged enclosures are a realisation of the experience that only Grado Labs knows from working with wood. Its founder Joseph Grado was inducted into the Audio Hall of Fame in 1982 for his incredible and innovative headphone inventions, and to this day, Grado Labs is a family operated company working from their famous Brooklyn factory.
Grado’s GS2000e once again takes that knowledge and combines it with what musical instrument manufacturers have learned. With the use of maple in the inner shaft allowing the energy of the sound of music to be fully transmitted, while the mahogany in the outer shell opens up the sound to reveal the true harmonic structure, as well as the space the artist intended.
In addition, every component in the GS2000e is considered carefully, with new purpose built 50mm drivers paired with 12 conductor ultra-high purity copper cables, all coming together for an engaging and whole musical experience. This organic approach embodies the truly artisanal, and is the essence of how we can effectively connect to the music.
The ear pads are designed to be especially comfortable; thanks to the large G around the ear pads and they are very comfortable due to this and the lightweight wood design.
The base model comes with a standard headphone 6.3mm headphone jack and there is an option to upgrade to a balanced four-pin XLR jack.
