  • Summary: Foreword: I have just acquired my first set of Grado GS1000's, at approximately 3-4 years old, these are the non-i version. They have only had a claimed 15-25 hours use prior to my initial testing, these cans are not broken in, they will require 100-200 hours before properly warmed.
  • Pros: Amazing Soundstage, Precise Imaging, Nothing Short Of Breath-taking
  • Cons: Expensive

  • Pros: Imaging, clarity, mids
  • Cons: Price, Soundstage is a bit flat, the headband is still underwhelming

Grado GS1000

  • Conclusion: The Grado GS1000 headphones are very likely the greatest-sounding headphones ever made—and are priced accordingly.
  • Pros: The best audio performance in headphones available. Rich, unexaggerated bass. Mid and high frequencies are precise and crisp. Beautiful, unique design.
  • Cons: Extremely expensive. Large size and outward sound projection are a drag for travelers.

Grado GS1000 review

  • Summary: How much? Ah yes, that price: there’s no getting around it, £1000 is a hell of a lot of money to pay for a pair of headphones, especially when they make you look like a period drama Marconi operator.
