The large chambers fit around your ears, not on top of them, creating a private listening booth. Air flows with the music to keep you comfortable while marveling at the clarity and range. Grado's select Mahogany tone-woods are hand matched for aesthetic beauty, just as their phenomenal drivers are individually matched for sonic consistency.
"...the company's ultimate art-not-science blend of style, performance, and comfort, with lightweight, oversized mahogany earpieces that would make your dad jealous and sound that anyone with a discerning eardrum would kill for." -Paul Miller, The Verge
The hand-crafted mahogany earpieces utilize an intricate curing process that optimizes the tonal quality while giving them a new look. The GS1000e uses 50mm dynamic transducers and the new 12 conductor cable design. The wood, driver, and cable designs, result in tight control and stability of the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum to support the GS1000e's world renowned midrange. Grado's GS1000e cushion design actually creates a 'room' for the ears to sit, with a larger soundstage and greater spatial experience for the listener. It was most important to design the correct balance between the driver and Grado's wooden driver housing to give them the pure sound we crave. Grado believes the GS1000e are one of the most comfortable headphones on the market today. The GS1000e retains a sound that is pure Grado, with warm harmonic colors, rich full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics, and an ultra-smooth top end. The presentation is very detailed, the bass is deep, and the music is very tight while non-fatiguing. All with stunning separation and layering of the music.

"Not only were these the best-sounding headphones I've ever tested, they were also the best-sounding headphones at low volumes, where I still experienced a strong sense of bass. And the Grados can certainly hold their own at high volumes." -PC Magazine
"The GS1000 is the kind of exceptional piece of equipment that does not only deliver a message but is capable of recreating a real emotion. These headphones are worthy of the best companions...Highly Recommended!" -Prestige Audio Video Magazine
"But there's more to the GS-1000 than just soundstage. The overall sense of neutrality and transparency. The effortless and liquid midband. And the bass -- strong yet perfectly controlled and detailed. I'll say it now, as I've had a chance to listen to and spend many hours with it since the Meet: The GS-1000 may be as close to a perfect headphone as I've so far heard." -Jude Mansilla, founder of headfi.org
"...the GS-1000s are a masterpiece of industrial design...They play naturally all the most complex music...Good enough for Accessory Of The Year? Undoubtedly." -Max Dudious, Positive Feedback
