Continuing over two decades of one of the most important headphone designs, the now hybrid Grado GS1000x Headphone reaches new heights when paired with X Drivers, new cables, and for the first time a combination of mahogany and ipê wood.

This superb headphone features; handcrafted, over-sized, mahogany earpieces made using an intricate curing process, which enables Grado to optimise the tonal quality. The GS1000x also uses upgraded 50mm dynamic transducers and a new 12 conductor cable design.

The Sound of Wood

Grado has been working with mahogany longer than any other wood, it’s a skill we’ve been honing for generations. The materiality of the GS1000x goes even further now that we’ve paired it with ipê wood, a tropical and durable wood that pairs incredibly well with mahogany. This marriage elevates the signature sound of the GS1000x. Mahogany exudes warm tones while ipê acts as a sturdy base for the any sound passing through its grain.

A Spacious Soundstage

Journey inside the music and hear the space between instruments with the unique soundstage of the GS1000x. This is only possible when our large cushions, 50mm driver, 12-conductor cable, and large housing work in unison.

X Series Drivers

The GS1000x is the first full-bodied headphone to take advantage of the larger 50mm X Drivers. Specifically tuned to bring forth the warmth mahogany produces, this new speaker design features a more powerful magnetic circuit, a voice coil with decreased effective mass, and a reconfigured diaphragm. Reengineering these components for our 50mm drivers improve efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.

New Cable & Headbands

Along with the speakers, the cables and headband have been redesigned for the GS1000x. Housed in a more durable exterior, the now super annealed copper 12-conductor cable reveals even more of your music with improved purity. The new black leather headband features a white-stitched accent.

Hand Assembled in Brooklyn

Our first wooden headphones were built in the middle of the night back in 1994 by John Grado. Wood has been a staple on our workbench ever since. Each GS1000x headphone is hand-built by our team in Brooklyn - these headphones go from workbench to workbench until they’re ready for your ears. We started building on a kitchen table in 1953, and every experience since then has led to the GS1000x.
