What is it?
The GS3000e is the finest wooden headphone Grado Labs has built to date. Using Cocobolo for the first time in a large-body housing, this Grado has some of the richest sound we’ve ever produced.
Cocobolo is found in Central America, and just like the music there, is teeming with texture and emotion. What was discovered from using this wood in the GH2 and the flagship phono cartridge siblings, the Epoch and Aeon, has been brought over to the Statement Series process for the first time. This is the fullest single body of Cocobolo we have ever built, and the GS3000e is the perfect fit for it.
Being the first Statement Series headphone to use Cocobolo, we carefully tuned our 50mm signature drivers to not only take advantage of the larger soundstage, but to also embrace the deep and impactful musical character of this unique wood. Cocobolo continues to be one of the family’s favorite woods to work with.
How does it work?
Visually defined by large cocobolo wood housings, the Grado Statement Series GS3000e are over-ear headphones designed to communicate a large soundstage and wideband frequency reproduction for audiophiles and music enthusiasts in homes, listening rooms, and acoustically controlled environments. The open-back design reduces internal resonance and reflections to enhance transparency. The 50mm dynamic drivers are matched to 0.05 dB and produce a wide frequency response of 4 Hz to 51 kHz. With a 32-Ohm impedance, the GS3000e headphones are well-suited for use with mobile devices as well as dedicated headphone amplifiers.
The cushioned earpads and headband ensure comfort for long listening sessions. The 5.9′ hardwired cable is terminated with a 1/4″ TRS connector for compatibility with audio interfaces, mixers, and separate amps, and the supplied 1/4″ to 3.5mm adapter allows easy hookup to a smartphone or tablet. A 15′ extension cable is included to accommodate increased distance between source devices and your desired listening position.
