Grado GS1000e

Combining elegance, comfort and audiophile sound in a statement that is the Grado GS1000e. With refreshed design elements, the GS1000e employs 50mm dynamic drivers and a new 12 conductor audio cable. Hand-crafted mahogany earpieces are made using an intricate curing process that optimises the tonal quality while presenting the GS1000e with a fresh look.

With the wood material, overhauled drivers and new cable design that combine to provide tight control and stability of the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum the GS1000e is able to support the world renowned Grado midrange.

Large chambers that fit around the ears create a private sound space. Air flows with the music to keep you comfortable while marvelling at the clarity and range. Grado's select Mahogany tone-woods are hand matched for aesthetic beauty, just as the extraordinary drivers are individually matched for sonic consistency.

Audio elation.


Grado GS1000e


Reference Sound
GS1000e uses 50mm dynamic transducers for tight control and stability of the highs and lows to support a world renowned midrange. Sound presentation is highly detailed with deep bass extension with exemplary separation and layering of the music.

Listening Space
Grado's GS1000e cushion design creates a space for the ears to sit creating a large soundstage and greater spatial experience for the listener. The design is most important to create the correct balance between the driver and the wooden driver housing to be able to present pure and spacious sound.

Redesigned Cables
Grado has also designed a twelve-conductor cable using a UHPLC (Ultra-High Purity, Long Crystal) copper that improves control and stability of the total range of the frequency spectrum.

Comfortable Design
Crafted with mahogany wood housing, large foam-padded earcups and signature Grado leather-covered headband with individually adjustable slides in order to adjust the fit for perfect comfort.

Non fatiguing and easy to drive
by Adam on 17/01/2018
I chose the GS1000e as an alternative to driving (with some difficulty) my HD800 from low gain headphone outputs (A&K DAP and Pathos Aurium).

The sound is much more laid back and less analytical than the HD800, so very relaxing when listening for extended periods.

The earcups are huge and need to be placed carefully to align the drivers satisfactorily. Alas they don't sit too comfortably with reading glasses for extended listening but I can tolerate it.

The GS1000e can take ages to burn in but the upside is that they increase their rewarding as they burn in.

Everything is served up in just enough quantity. Tight bass that can rumble when called to do so, acoustics and vocals are rich and mellow, treble is precise without activating my sensitivity to high frequency.

Definitely an in-door headphone due to wooden ergonomics and open back. The 3.5mm adapter and 3m extension lead make no changes to the tonality, even when used with the HD800.

A bit pricy for something so old school but they are a long term keeper.
