Looking at the GS1000i, it's easy to see the carefully cured mahogany ear chambers and the oversized foam cushions that actually create a "room" for the listener's ears. Both of these features are more than aesthetic details: the wooden chambers help control resonance and the ear pads, in addition to making the GS1000i one of the most comfortable headphones on the market, also help in its trademark spacious sound.
What you can't see is that the drivers and cabling are among the most advanced in Grado's history. With all components working together seamlessly, the GS1000i produces one of the most refined iterations of the Grado sound ever - neutral, detailed, and spacious. If you aren't the type to be swayed by the rave reviews these headphones have garnered from press and listeners alike, you'll have to let your ears be the judge. Made with pride in Brooklyn, NY, U.S.A.
