Into the Abyss.
A Spacious Soundstage
Journey inside the music and hear the space between instruments with the unique soundstage of the GS3000x. This is only possible when our large cushions, new 52mm driver, 12-conductor cable, and large housing work in unison. This is the most detail a Grado headphone has ever delivered from your music to your ears.
The Sound of Wood & Metal
Teeming with texture and emotion, cocobolo’s sonic properties and innate mass makes it perfect for the new speakers. Grado paired this with a metal chamber to add even more mass, which lets us control the rigidity of the largest driver yet. Cocobolo has striking patterns and colours that tend to vary from pair to pair.
X Series Driver.
The Most Powerful Yet
The GS3000x is the first headphone to utilize the new 52mm X Driver. Specifically tuned to embrace the tenacity of cocobolo and precision of metal, 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 first 52mm drivers improve 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 GS3000x. 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.
