Grado has recently change the colour of Statement and Reference headbands from black to a tan brown. Accordingly, the headphones you receive may not precisely match the colour found in the images.
Amongst Grado aficionados, their series of handcrafted mahogany headphones have taken on something of a legendary status. Amongst those headphones, the Grado GS1000e 'Statement' is nothing short a stunning example, and the flagship of the range - capable of delivering truly jaw dropping performances that are a league above the old Grado GS1000i and Grado GS1000 models.
The key to the Grado GS1000e's performance comes from their handcrafted, oversized mahogany earpieces. They're made with an intricate curing process which enables Grado to optimise the internal tonal quality. When paired with an upgraded 50mm dynamic transducer and class-leading 12 conductor cable design, it creates outstanding sonic performances.
Grado have designed the cushions of the Grado GS1000e to create a 'room' for the ears to sit, meaning a greater soundstage and superior spatial experience for the listener. It also leaves the optimal space between driver and wooden housing to ensure it met the exacting standards of a Grado headset.
