Since 1953 Grado Labs has adapted at our own pace, and the first wireless Grado headphone is only the first step in what’s to come. They took their time to get the sound just right and made no compromises in the GW100. Nothing is lost except the wires.
Inside the GW100 are none other than their signature Grado drivers. These speakers are the same ones they build for their wired headphones, which are finely tuned for the different enclosures Grado uses. Grado Labs' first wireless headphone is no different, with drivers configured specifically for them. The desired sonic capabilities of the GW100 would not be possible without decades of experience in driver design.
The GW100 are the worlds first open-back Bluetooth headphones. Their speaker housings and internals have been designed from the ground up, now working in tandem to notably diminish escaping sound by up to 60%.*
There is a design language that’s seen throughout all of Grado's headphones since they started building them nearly 30 years ago. The GW100 continues this, looking like it’s part of the family simply at a glance. These wireless Grado headphones are a milestone in their 65 year history.
