The preeminent luthiers, Stradivarius and Guarnerius used a combination of woods to craft violins and cellos that have become legendary and well as priceless.
This tradition of using different woods is found in the crafting of many wood bodied musical instruments, such as guitars and pianos, made today.
With the unique experience that John Grado has in designing and manufacturing headphones with wood, the GS2000e becomes possible.
The GS2000e is a hybrid wood enclosure.
The outer enclosure is crafted from Mahogany.
The inner enclosure is crafted from Maple.
A new purpose built 50 mm driver was developed for the
GS2000e. This driver is based upon the improvements designed into the “e” series drivers.
This powerful combination of design considerations results in a headphone of sheer musical ability and a full frequency voice that will delight the most demanding music aficionados.
A 4 pin XLR balance cable option is available for an additional $170! A 4 pin XLR to 1/4" plug adapter cable is included for the $170 price.
