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.
The GS1000e are one of the most comfortable sets of headphones on the market today. The large chambers fit around your ears, not on top of them, creating a private listening booth. Air flows with the music to keep you comfortable while marveling at the clarity and range. Grado’s select Mahogany tone-woods are hand matched for aesthetic beauty, just as our phenomenal drivers are individually matched for sonic consistency.
The hand-crafted mahogany earpieces utilize an intricate curing process that optimizes the tonal quality while giving them a new look. The GS1000e uses 50mm dynamic transducers and the new 12 conductor cable design. The wood, driver, and cable designs, result in tight control and stability of the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum to support the GS1000e’s world renowned midrange. Grado’s GS1000e cushion design actually creates a ‘room’ for the ears to sit, with a larger soundstage and greater spatial experience for the listener.
