Mother Nature Lends a Hand: Grado GS1000x Headphones Incorporate Two Types of Wood for Terrific Sound, Natural Aesthetics, and Superb Comfort
Grado has earned an exceptional reputation for its expertise on the sonic properties of various woods. This rich legacy is extended by the Statement Series GS1000x headphones, which merge mahogany with ipê, a tropical, durable wood. The result: Clear, precise sonics. This combination of woods elevates the signature sound of the GS1000x in a unique way: Mahogany exudes warm tones, while ipê acts as a sturdy base for any sound passing through its grain. The wooden ear cups are the ideal weight for offering amazing sound without adding an uncomfortable amount of mass to the overall design.
These comfortable, precision headphones allow you to venture inside the music to hear the space between instruments and to experience soundstages you didn't think were possible from headphones in this price class. This level of performance is possible thanks to the 50mm driver, large cushions, and 12-conductor cable, which are engineered to work together cohesively, in perfect unison.
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 50mm drivers improves efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.
Along with the speakers, the GS1000x cables and headband have been redesigned. Housed in a more durable exterior, the super-annealed copper 12-conductor cable reveals even more details in your favorite music. In terms of aesthetics, the new black leather headband features a white-stitched accent.
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 the company's workbench ever since. The GS1000x headphones were hand-assembled in Brooklyn and come with the 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee.
