The Sound of Wood
Grado has been working with mahogany longer than any other wood. The materiality of the GS1000x goes even further now that they paired it with ipê wood, a tropical and durable wood that pairs incredibly well with mahogany. This marriage elevates the signature sound of the GS1000x. Mahogany exudes warm tones while ipê acts as a sturdy base for any sound passing through its grain.
Into the Abyss.
A Spacious Soundstage
Journey inside the music and hear the space between instruments with the unique soundstage of the GS1000x. This is only possible when the large cushions, 50mm driver, 12-conductor cable, and large housing work in unison.
A New Harmony.
X Series Drivers
The GS1000x is the first full-bodied headphone to take advantage of the larger 50mm X Drivers. Specifically tuned to bring forth the warmth mahogany produces, this new speaker design features a more powerful magnetic circuit, a voice coil with decreased effective mass, and a reconfigured diaphragm. Reengineering these components for the 50mm drivers improves efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.
A Little Extra.
New Cable & Headbands
Along with the speakers, the cables and headband have been redesigned for the GS1000x. Housed in a more durable exterior, the now super annealed copper 12-conductor cable reveals even more of your music with improved purity. The new black leather headband features a white-stitched accent.
Hand Assembled in Brooklyn
Grado's first wooden headphones were built in the middle of the night back in 1994 by John Grado. Wood has been a staple on our workbench ever since. Each GS1000x headphone is hand-built by the team in Brooklyn - these headphones go from workbench to workbench until they’re ready for your ears.
