Brooklyn-based company Grado Labs has been making high-quality audio equipment since 1953, introducing the first dynamic headphones to the world in the 1980s. Now the family-run business has introduced a third generation to their beloved headphone collection. The e Series somehow improves upon their seemingly flawless design by incorporating precious materials like SpaceBlack polycarbonate to absorb vibrations for a clearer tone, mahogany to reduce sound coloration, and rhodium to prevent corrosion and avoid grainy audio. The interior of the housing has been refined to preserve the purity of sound while adjustments have been made to the magnetic field ensuring symmetry throughout the voice coil. More than 60 years of expertise have led them to develop their most refined driver geometry thus far, tracking music frequencies with more precision than ever before. Even the glue that holds these Aside from a world-class listening experience, the hand-made headphones come in a variety of sleek, minimal designs that showcase the beauty of their construction; differing combinations of fine mahogany, brushed, polished and jet black aluminum “represent the embodiment of art and technology.” Grado just raised the bar even higher with their e Series, which will soon be available in their full range of styles.
