  • Summary: A buddy borrowed me his GS1000 for 2 weeks. I wasn't too excited about them. Resolution, blackness and soundscape were impressive, but the mids were congested by bass and the crazy treble to an extend that I almost found them recessed. No musicality as result.

  • Summary: Dear listeners. Don't fool yourself by trusting too much all those reviews of headphones which are put in this website. Many of them are simply are based on not careful listening, audio adjustment, and quite reckless judgement.

  • Summary: Until I bought my first pair of Grados, I found myself sending a lot of headphones back, including expensive cans from Bose and Shure. Louder is not necessarily better, especially if the signal separation is mud.

  • Summary: Compared to my UltimateEars UE Pro-10 monitors, the Grado soundstage is better, but the bass is tubby/unfocused. And: after a couple of months of use-- putting the phones on and adjusting the placement of cans/cups to ears/head-- the dang things fell apart: the cans/cups FELL OFF THE RODS TO WHICH...

  • 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

  • Summary: Well...initially with my Antique Sound Labs MG Head OTL Mark III with a Telefunken 12AX7 and a pair of very nice J/J EL84's in OTL mode I was lukewarm with these especially when comparing them to my Sennheiser HD-650's!!!
