What is it?
Mahogany and Maple, classic tone woods married in audio bliss. The GS2000e combines them in the same manner that luthiers have done for centuries, and for the same reason: resonance. Different types of wood sing with their own personalities.
The Grado statement headphones are to the audiophile what Stradivarius is to the violin. The sensations of listening put you with tears in the eyes so much the beauty, the delicacy, the loyalty of sounds overtake the imagination. The sound stage is wide and of an incredible scale, the slightest details are faithfully transcribed without being analytical, the dynamics so impressive without ever assaulting the ear.
The hand-crafted mahogany and maple merged enclosures are a realization of the knowledge from the experience that only Grado Labs knows from working with wood. This technique is used by the finest musical instrument manufacturers from the past and the present. The use of Maple gives the energy of the sound of music to be fully transmitted, then the Mahogany allows it to open up and reveal the true harmonic structure as well as the space that the artist intended.
How does it work?
The GS2000e’s dynamic drivers are built specifically to excel within the hybrid wood enclosures. Those extra-large wooden chambers provide a wide-open soundstage. Within it, you can pick out vocals and instruments with pinpoint accuracy. These ‘phones manage to improve on the already stellar acoustic detail and clarity of the company’s GS1000e headphones. And the blend of mahogany and maple helps mellow out the sound a bit too.
Over-sized earpads help keep the lightweight GS2000e headphones comfortable, and also help dampen resonance. The twelve-conductor connecting cable is terminated with 1/4″ plug and a miniplug adapter is included. We recommend you plug into a headphone amplifier for the best sound quality.
In addition every component in the GS2000e is considered carefully, the new purpose built 50 mm drivers, the 12 conductor ultra high purity copper cable and ear cushions, all work together for an engaging musical experience. This organic approach embodies what is truly artisanal and is the essence of how we can effectively connect to the music.
