”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 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HEADPHONES THAT MAKE THE GRADE-OH! These headphones are unusual in more ways than one and that sense of their difference is immediately conspicuous from their retro' design integrity to the sound signature that they deliver. I had tried a series of Bluetooth headphones and never found any of them to be faithful to the original sound files without significant diminishment in quality. Or, the headphones produced a sound that was either too bright, too thin or insubstantial overall. Often, even if the sound seemed acceptable, the price most certainly was not. Then came these. Whilst their design might not be everybody's taste, they are indisputably light and very portable though the head-cups make them look a little larger in real life than they appear in most of the videos and pictures that I had seen, certainly. The Bluetooth pairing is fast and seamless with all devices and the sound quality is not only pleasingly close to the wired version (blissfully short cable included; perfect for travel and home use, too) but it is also not far off that which you obtain when using the cable! Battery life is way beyond Grado's suggested 15 hour window. I managed to get over 20 hours after the first charge which was a pleasant surprise. As for the sound; when testing these in store (Swiss Cottage) I tried them alongside the Dali headphones and found these to be way too flat, insipid even. I also noticed that vocals were not engaging and instrument separation was nigh on non-existent. I found them so brittle as to be unbearable. I switched to the Grado GW-100s. These have an immediacy, clarity, liveliness, warmth (without being coloured), bass sensitivity without being dominant and, most delightfully of all, instrument articulation that makes instruments settle in all the right places and the overall sound seem to occupy different spaces in the head rather than in either ear (something that could not be said of the Dali's, sadly). They are a touch bright in the treble and at higher frequencies (AT FIRST) but after a few hours of listening they soften and the initial, ostensible hint of, harshness dissipates. These headphones look great, rest comfortably on the head, are superbly and conveniently light, have that critical detachable cable option and deliver long-lasting Bluetooth decency at a price that leaves competitors reeling. I have found these to be so enjoyable that they have not left my head since buying them a week ago; my Beyer-Dynamic DT-990s sitting idle with resentment while I smile broadly beneath them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Retro Grado style, great Grado sound. These are easy to set up and can pair with 2 devices. Battery life is good and charging time is acceptable. Sound quality is also good and comparable to the wired Grado SR80s I've used for some time. These are open back headphones so are not ideal for use in crowded environments such as a bus or train unless you want the person next to you to hear what you are listening to. The included 3.5mm jack cable enables their use when the battery has run low. 2 control buttons on the left side enable volume control and track changes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Odd ball but great headphones I have had these for a few weeks now. The concept of open back Bluetooth headphones maybe odd. But don’t let this put you off. These Grado headphones are great. I have had a pair of SR60 for some years and are also superb. They do need running in and are a bit harsh to start with. But once they are, the sound is well balanced with a decent soundstage. Slightly modified look, but undeniably Grado. They are not your average headphone. They are better than that.
