Grado Statement Series SR1000 Headphones

Grado is pleased to announce the release of the GS1000, the new flagship of our headphone line.

The GS1000 was shown for the very first time at the International Head-Fi Convention in New York City. The response was just phenomenal. The Grado Statement GS1000 has been on the drawing board for sometime, and we have to admit that this is our finest effort to date.

This new headphone incorporates a redesigned driver, a new and larger wooden housing and much larger foam cushions that are extremely comfortable.

Grado’s new cushion design actually creates a “room” for the ears to sit, creating a larger soundstage and greater spatial experience for the listener. It was most important to design the correct balance between the driver and our new wooden driver housing to give us the resulting sound that we desired. This has been accomplished. By creating this “room” for the ears to sit, positioning of the cushions with regards to the ears (i.e., forward or back) is somewhat critical in finding the absolute sweet spot.

With this new cushion design, we now believe the GS1000 to be one, if not the most comfortable headphone on the market today.

The new designed driver delivers a top to bottom sound that is extremely balanced. The mass distribution within the new larger wooden housing has also been improved. The way the new driver and wooden housing work together to move air and react to sound vibrations are less affected by transient distortions. The new GS1000 will provide improved control over the upper and lower frequency spectrums while better supporting Grado’s world-renowned midrange.

The GS1000 retains a sound that is pure Grado, 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 and non-fatiguing. All with a soundstage that is huge allowing for unbelievable separation and layering of the music which is simply stunning.

Listen and enjoy!
