The Grado Statement GS1000e has been one of our favorites ever since it was first introduced at the very first CanJam in NYC. We're sure you will find it an impressive headphone and one worth consideration for audiophile listening!
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. Our select
Mahogany tone-woods are hand matched for aesthetic beauty, just as our
phenomenal drivers are individually matched for sonic consistency.
"the company's ultimate
art-not-science blend of style, performance, and comfort, with
lightweight, oversized mahogany earpieces that would make your dad
jealous - and sound that anyone with a discerning eardrum would kill for
- The Verge, Paul Miller
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. It was most
important to design the correct balance between the driver and our
wooden driver housing to give us the pure sound we crave. We believe the
GS1000e are one of the most comfortable headphones on the market today.
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.
