When you first lay eyes on the Grado GS1000x Statement, they may seem like another pair of classic over-ear headphones from Grado. However, these are more than meets the eye. Grado’s commitment to continuous improvement is evident in every detail. Notably, the GS1000x introduces ipê, a durable tropical wood, alongside Grado’s beloved mahogany, enhancing sonic solidity and robustness in the driver housing.
Under the hood, the GS1000x boasts the latest ‘X’ dynamic drivers, designed to leverage the warmth of mahogany. The 50mm drivers feature a more potent magnetic circuit, a lower-mass voice coil, and a reworked diaphragm for heightened efficiency and reduced distortion. The redesign extends to the headband and cables, featuring a 12-conductor super-annealed copper cable and a minimally padded, leather-covered headband with elegant white stitching.
Delivering a vivid, detailed sound, the GS1000x captivates with its compelling and absorbing performance. Grado’s focus on construction over flashy design is evident in the GS1000x. While the materials are top-notch, the emphasis is on positioning the drivers over the ears. Weighing less than 400g, they provide comfort for extended listening sessions. As open-backed headphones, they’re best enjoyed in solitude where they reward you with a sonic experience that lingers.

The GS1000x is the first full-bodied headphone to take advantage of the larger 50mm X Drivers. Specifically tuned to bring forth the warmth mahogany produces, this new speaker design features a more powerful magnetic circuit, a voice coil with decreased effective mass, and a reconfigured diaphragm. Reengineering these components for our 50mm drivers improve efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.
