My Favorite Headphones

I love my GW100xs the sound quality is so clear and their charge lasts for days. The GW100xs also have a really good microphone which has been a life saver for calls and sending audios to people. I wish the design was more customizable with different colors and designs, regardless I have brought these with me all over and they have held up wonderfully. I will always stick by my Grados and their wonderful sound.

Goosebumps! There is no other way to listen to music.

I was in my late teens when I first heard of the legendary sound quality that Grado headphones had. Back then, the internet was at its infancy so the only way to hear endorsements of products was through the professionals and actual musicians - no social endorsements from paid influencers.
I am now 52 years old and I have finally purchased my first pair of Grado headphones and I can say without exaggeration that for the first time in my life, I am "listening" to music because for the past 32 years, what I was experiencing with other headphones was simply hearing noise. I read somewhere once that Grado headphones were the Rolls Royce of headphones. I disagree with that quote - rather the more correct quote should be that Rolls Royce is the Grado of automobiles.

I ordered 2 pairs in a row; both arrived broken, and i'm responsible for shipping both back!

after the first pair arrived I emailed them to see if a loose piece rattling around in one of the earphones was a common issue; they responded with a link to the review page

i heard really good things, so i decided to buy a second pair before sending the first pair back—they wanted me to send the first pair back on my dime to have it repaired lol; i figured i could just mail the first pair back for a refund

The second pair was more broken than the first! It does seem very possible these were broken during shipping, but the extremely limited padding in the box are to blame if that's the case

i would love to try these, but i can't afford to keep shipping their mistakes back to them while i wait on them to fulfill my order

Great Wireless Headphones

I use my headphones late at night in my office when studying, which includes a lot of reading. However, my wife is sleeping in our bedroom, which is next to the office, thus the need to use headphones. I have been using wired Grado headphones for a few years and finally got tired of having the wire interfere with my studying. Now I can study without that discomfort and distraction of the wire headphones and the music sounds better than my SR60 that I have used for about a decade. I now also use these headphones with a small MP3 player when I am not in my office but doing easy tasks like reviewing mail, preparing a meal, or reading the newspaper. And if one of my favorite tunes pop up, I can pause whatever I am doing and crank up the song and get lost in it. I highly recommend these headphones; they are perfect for my needs.


Worth every penny

Let us know abour your query!
When you snag your pair of Grado’s open-back GW100x headphones, you’ll discover a message on the box interior proudly proclaiming the company’s six-decade legacy as a family-run business in Brooklyn. The design of these headphones echoes our heritage, boasting a no-frills aesthetic with circular grills, a smooth black-leather headband, and a commitment to delivering exceptional sound.
Grado has introduced 44mm drivers, redesigned speaker housings, and support for the aptX Adaptive codec, enhancing the overall performance. However, the design philosophy for the GW100x prioritizes functionality over flamboyance, and we've maintained a stripped-back aesthetic that exudes an industrial, hard-edged feel. The lightweight design offers practical features like an in-built microphone for voice calls and robust up-and-down slider mechanism for easy adjustments, a choice between wired and wireless connections, and an impressive 46-hour battery life at 50% volume.
Perfect for at home listening, the GW100x delivers as expected from Grado, offering a rich and detailed audio experience. Whether used wirelessly or with the 3.5mm jack-equipped cable, the headphones excel in reproducing diverse musical genres with clarity and precision. If you prioritize top-notch audio in a quiet environment, the GW100x is worth considering, despite its unconventional design and features.

2 Days to Tune Out

With a more efficient battery and Bluetooth 5.2, the GW100x can now play music for nearly two days straight. Matching our GT220, USB-C is now included, bringing the GW100x in line with global charging standards. The upgraded chipset allows more information to flow from your device to the GW100x, all while maintaining a strong connection.

X Series Driver

4th Generation Grado drivers are here. Specifically tuned for the wireless GW100x, 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 44mm drivers improve efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.

Milestone After Milestone

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 our headphones since we released our first one in 1991. The GW100x continues this, looking like it’s part of the family simply at a glance. These wireless Grado headphones are a milestone in our seven decade history.

Music, Voice, Volume, Calls

Ignore that one person you’re avoiding and leave your phone in your pocket. The GW100x is capable of letting you control your volume and music playback right at your ear. If your device allows, you can activate your voice assistant and also answers calls. Or ignore them, you know, for that one person.
