”The kings of open-back headphones go wireless.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review. Tested at £169.

Grado’s first wireless headphones

Brooklyn based Grado are renowned for producing some of the world’s finest headphones. What none of them have been, until now, is wireless. For their first pair of wireless headphones, Grado has produced something special. Using Bluetooth Version 4.2 with apt-X, wireless sound quality gets closer to wired than ever and is a huge improvement over earlier versions – meaning these headphones live up to the high standards of sound quality set by Grado.

Grado drive units
Using the same signature Grado drive units as the wired headphones, the GW100’s lose nothing in sound quality. These are finely tuned for the GW100 and closely paired for sound consistency across the channels.

World’s first Bluetooth open back headphones
Uniquely, the Grado GW100 are the world’s first Bluetooth open-back headphones. What this means is that you not only get the freedom of wireless headphones but also the spacious, immersive sound that comes from a top quality pair of open-back headphones. Open-back headphones allow the sound to ‘breathe’ giving a wider soundstage and more life-like sense of space around the music. Thanks to redesigned speaker housings, escaping sound (one of the downsides of open-back headphones) is reduced by 60%.

Built-in mic – ideal for your smartphone
With many smartphones now doing away with conventional headphone sockets, wireless Bluetooth headphones make more sense than ever. With the GW100 headphones also featuring a built-in mic, they’re even better suited to using with your smartphone, as you can also make phone calls without removing them.

Long battery life and cable supplied
Used at around half volume, the GW100 headphones have a battery life of up to 15 hours. Simply charge with the supplied USB cable when they’re running low. Alternatively, a wired cable with 3.5mm plug is also provided – keeping your music going even when the batteries are flat.

Robust and comfortable
Using densely padded ear-foams and a broad headband, the GW100’s have all the comfort you’d expect from Grado. With swivel earpieces, they also fit snugly against your ears, as well as folding flat for storage. Their construction is tough enough to take a daily commute while still offering long-term comfort.

Unique style
Despite the new wireless tech, the unique retro style continues and is still quite unlike rivals' headphones. In the tradition of many of the best products, form follows function, so there's nothing superfluous in the Grado's design – just timeless elegance.

With nothing removed except the wires, the Grado GW100 headphones deliver the full Grado experience – no strings attached.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just brilliant! I ordered these on line yesterday by standard delivery and they arrived this morning. The instructions are concise and clear and I paired them up, first time, with my Sony Walkman and desk top computer in a couple of minutes. I have only listened to them via bluetooth for a couple of hours but the sound is just wonderful. I listen to a lot of American Songbook vocals by Ella, Tony Bennett, Francis Albert, etc.and I have to say that I am so impressed with the voices which are soft and rounded but very clear and the accompaniments are really detailed. For the last few years I have been listening through a set of wired Sennheiser HD280 pros and even via bluetooth, I have to say that the sound through the Grados is much clearer and more pleasant - no hardness but great detail. I'm also a great opera fan, particularly Puccini and Verdi and I'm looking forward to hearing the Grados cope with some great classical stuff. Couldn't be happier with the product and Richer Sounds' service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality These are fantastic headphones for private listening, the level of detail is just so impressive. My old AKG K55s sound really muddy by comparison, its like HD for your ears. Musical instruments sound very natural, voices are clear, I can hear hidden detail in songs I've listened to all my life. There isn't the artificial extra bass you get with many headphones, what bass there is is taut and controlled. On the down side, I wouldn't use these headphones in public or whilst exercising - being open backed they not only leak sound but they let sound in too and they don't sit snugly enough on the head to stay on whilst jogging - could be great for a long quiet walk mind you. The thing is though, these aren't my only headphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fab sound, wireless and wired This is perfect for the house or garden in wireless mode, and will not disturb the family or neighbours. Also perfect for walking in the park. I can still hear birds. Or walking to work. It is great avoiding being run over by buses or bikes. I can hear them approaching. Alternatively I can plug it in for perfect sound- Grado say this is like the 125e. Why do people complain about open backs? Not everyone travels on the tube! Besides I am not deaf. I can hear about 5 cm away from headphones. If you turn your hifi up to maximum am sure your neighbours will hear that too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good for Bluetooth As a hi fi nut good sound quality is essential. The sound is never going to be as good as wired cans especially when ever listening to the highest quality on Spotify. Nevertheless surprised as how decent these cans are. Good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenience but not at the expense of quality I bought the GW100s a couple of weeks ago after searching for open backed wireless headphones and realising that there isn’t a great deal of choice. As an owner of some ageing original Grado SR80 I hoped I knew what I was getting without demoing first and I’m not disappointed with my purchase. The headphones are not without their faults. Build quality is distinctly average and plasticky, the cups apply a bit to much pressure on my head and there’s a bit too much background hiss for my liking (but I am fussy). But now to the good bits - for the money I don’t think you’ll find a better sounding open backed headphone. There’s a signature warmth about the mid range and it’s well connected to the bass. Bass is plentiful but not stupidly exaggerated like some. There’s plenty of sparkle too without being harsh. What I like best, especially with more acoustic tracks, is the sense of being sung to like you’re in the same room and being able to pick out the positions of instruments and backing singers. I’m knocking one star off because whilst I can forgive the build quality for the price I can’t quite forgive the noise floor. Taken in context it’s fine, there can only be about £50 worth of amplification in them but perhaps Grado could have done a slightly better job. If Grado bring out higher specced wireless headphones I’ll be the first to try them because I’m in love with the Grado sound and I always have been.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable and great sound I’m still breaking them in but already they sound good. I much prefer open-backed headphones when walking outdoors and bought these to replace my trusty old Sennheiser PX100-ii. Even though they are bigger the Grados are more comfortable than the Sennheiser.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good set of wireless headphones Bought initially for my wife to listen to audio books, but really far too good for that use, I now steal them to listen my music. Great rich deep and sensible bass levels make these Grado GW100 a really good choice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great with reservations.. After reading many reviews I ordered these with reservations..My use is mainly for great sound quality around the house and garden (where I don't have to worry about looking like a Cyberman) sound leakage or being taffled up by wires while doing stuff such as kitchen cupboard knobs while cooking! Was initially disappointed with the volume level but like with most high end headphones..But on connecting the included wire was blown away by the imaging, live sound and general increase in sound quality by simply plugging in..These sound much better than the price reflects if you are willing to sacrifice top end noise cancelling, high end bluetooth plus bells and whistles for simple enjoyability these are cheaper in the UK than in the US it seems at the moment...(2020) Still have to sacrifice something to Bluetooth though although the sound still beats anything else I have heard.
