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

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 upgraded, Bluetooth Version 5 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.

Longer battery life and cable supplied
Used at around half volume, the GW100 headphones now have an improved battery life of up to 40 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 Epic sound quality After listening to wired Grado headphones many years ago I was blown away by them. I purchased a set of Wireless Grado headphones for my brother this year - had a listen and thought I need some. Words can’t explain the detail of sound that you get from these, basically it has opened up tracks to another level. You hear instruments and sounds that you did not know existed! I even let a friend borrow them and he’s ordered a set. Amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, responsive bluetooth I'm a Grado fan already and these fit their usual standards very well. I use them when roaming around in my home, especially when I need loud music. They have a detailed sound through the range with textured bass that has depth rather than 'boom'. My preference for prolonged listening is an open back cup that gives the music room to breathe, literally. These are a bit more closed than usual Grado headphones but still have the characteristic I'm after. I haven't had them long so can't report on the battery yet but the bluetooth connection is immediate. One note is that these are Bluetooth 5.0 and I think were marketed as 4.X. Like all good headphones they will wear in and mature but the sound is already great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant headphones, great price Top notch service from Richer Sounds, ordered by phone and they arrived the next day. The headphones are excellent, similar sound to my old Grado SR80i's but with wireless functionality. Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and excellent sound. I have been using these headphones for a few weeks now and have found them very comfortable to wear for long periods of time. The sound reproduction is very open and seems a lot less bass heavy than my other pair of closed back NR headphones. They have very good detail separation and impart a more airy feel when listening to more ambient and electronic pieces to relax to after work. I purchased these as I was looking for for an alternative pair of headphones from my normal closed back ones since working from home more often (the closed back NR headphones are much better for when I was commuting on trains though). The open back allows me to hear more of what else is going on in the house, like when someone is at the door or the dogs want to go out, but without disturbing others in the house with what I am listening to. The microphone also allows me to take phone calls without any hassle and despite not having any form of boom for the mic the pickup has been very clear and I haven't had any complaints of sounding quiet, unlike some other headsets I have used. I have also recently discovered that they will happily pair with multiple devices (even if they are all on at the same time) and will simply play which ever audio starts first. Handy when listening to music from my phone which I can then pause and start a youtube video off on my laptop without re-pairing (my previous pair would only pair to one device at a time even though it could remember up to 3 pairings). All in all very happy with my purchase and with the excellent service from the on-line team.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound I have had these a few weeks and I’m very impressed with the sound, they do leak a lot of sound but they are open backed so I knew that. They connect easy to my Bluetooth as well.

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.
