Awesome scale and dynamics; incredible sound
What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision
Grado's GS1000i 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 the wooden driver housing to give the resulting quality sound that is desired. With this cushion design, the GS1000i are one of the most comfortable and best sounding headphones on the market today.
A new species of handcrafted Mahogany used for the earcups of the GS1000i utilises a complex curing process and enables the tonal quality to be considerably enhanced. Coupled with new upgraded dynamic transducers and new 8 conductor cable, the new design results in superior control and stability of the high and mid range of the sound spectrum.
Preserving the sound that defines Grado headphones from the rest, the GS1000i revels in rich, full-bodied vocals and smooth dynamics for the top end of the sound frequencies. Almost bottomless, the bass response produced is rich, deep and detailed in every aspect, allowing for a fatigue-free listening indulgence that is hard to beat.
Simply stunning, the soundstage of the GS1000i features an incredible separation and layering of any music style.
Spoil your ears, your soul, yourself with the Grado GS1000i headphones.
Grado GS1000i Reviews
What HiFi? Sound & Vision Reviews Grado GS1000i -
"A fabulous pair of headphones: they're not for the train, and they don't protect those around you from hearing what you're listening to - but for sheer sonic pleasure they're stunning!"
Stuff.tv Assessess the Grado GS1000i Headphones -
"Make the effort and spend the money, and you'll be rewarded with a divine performance. Play a live gig and the spaciousness of the delivery makes it feel like you're standing in the middle of the Brixton Academy."
The Absolute Sound Magazine - review by Neil Gader
"The Grado GS1000 is a luxury headphone built for comfort and long listening sessions...sinking into a favorite chair and enjoying a visit with a beloved symphony, headphones don't sound or feel much better than this. The GS1000s are utterly habit-forming, so audition at your own risk."
Financial Times UK - review by Jonathan Margolis
"It's not often a product I review elicits in me an emotional response...The Grado is like no other headphone I have ever tried... I've hook them up to quite ordinary hi-fi, to iPods and even my laptop and still been bowled over by the sheer beauty, clarity and spaciness...They have improved my life to such an extent that I have bought a pair for my own selfish use...A sound investment."
PC Magazine Editors Choice Award - Review by Tim Gideon
"THE GOLD STANDARD: Very likely the best sounding headphones ever made - and they're priced accordingly."
