Grado GS 1000x is the evolution of the famous representative of the 'Statement' series. It builds on all the elements that have made this range and the New York-based brand so popular.

Grado GS 1000x: design

A vintage headband design makes it quite unique.

The speaker chambers are cut for the first time in beautiful wooden pieces made of a sandwich of Mahogany and Ipe. This results in a remarkable rigidity and no parasitic vibrations and therefore no mechanical distortion.

For those who were disheartened with the comfort of the old Grado, it must be noted that the GS1000x is considered to be one of the most comfortable headphones on the market!

Its new earpads were modelled to recreate the concert hall around your ears!

The design is simply amazing; true craftsmanship. The products are assembled by hand in the company’s historic Brooklyn workshop.

Grado GS 1000x: features

The amazing and exclusive 40 mm transducers have an incredible frequency response 8 Hz/35 kHz! They undergo drastic sorting and pairing.

The coil wiring of the transducers uses HPLC conductors as well as the jumper cable, that uses 8 of them.

Grado GS 1000x: listening and review 

It must be said that this GS1000x needs as the majority of dynamic headphones around fifty hours of breaking in for the sound quality to be perfectly uniform and that a decent preamp must be added for you to enjoy its full potential. We tested it with the headphone amplifier Lehmann Audio Linear II.

The old version of these Grado headphones is now an undisputed reference, and all the world press has raved about it, so everything has already been said! But this new version seems even more neutral and musical. 

They are a benchmark regarding details, frequency response, neutrality, energy…

The sound stage is created perfectly before your eyes with the accuracy of the best monitoring speakers on the market.

The bass is remarkable and the treble runs with incredible accuracy with no aggressiveness. The timbres are full and subtle, giving voice spectacular quality.

The Grado GS 1000x Hi-Fi headphones is one of the most dynamic musical headphones to date. A great benchmark!
