”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 Outstanding sound quality, easy to use After looking at various options online, I went for a set of grado Bluetooth headphones. I was initially a little concerned about battery life, but I need not have worried. They last for hours. They are very easy to set up and pair, but the biggest thing is the sound quality. I went from a pair or wired beats headphones to these and the difference is amazing. It like hearing the songs for the first time again. I am noticing things in the music I have never heard before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Bought for work in lab and commute. Read reviews saying they leak sound too much for this purpose but have found that I can hear fine whilst not disturbing others. They do let pretty much all sound in though, so tube goers beware! Sound quality is great, especially over wired. In terms of wireless audio quality I'd say they punch a little below their price point. Battery life is also fantastic, easily get 2 week's worth of listening. Comfort was the main selling point for me. They unfortunately don't come with a case and would absolutely recommend buying as an extra.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Third pair of Grados Love these Bluetooth Grado GW100's. Great sound, easy to connect, and very comfortable to wear. These MK2's have a great battery life and use a USB c connector for charging - much better than the fiddley old d shaped connectors. Controls are easy to operate as well. Only thing I miss is the ability to automatically pause a song when you remove the headphones from your head and resume when you put them back on. Other than that a great set of phones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Sound I bought these recently, they’re my first pair of wireless, Bluetooth headphones, and I’ve never used my iPod so much! Very comfortable, easy to use, and I love the style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wireless sound, but niche product If you know the pros and cons of open-backed headphones and are familiar with the Grado ethos, you know what you’re getting into here. I love them, even as I have questions about the practicality of wireless open-back headphones. They sound great, as you’d expect from Grado, but whether or not they make sense for you is, well, up to you. I won’t be wearing them on the bus but I like the freedom of movement they provide while using them at home. Not much to add that hasn’t been said but one thing I think is important to note: many reviews I saw before I bought these complained about the microphone, but I have used the GW100s for phone calls and everyone I’ve asked has said the voice quality is very good on their end. Better than my Apple AirPods Pro, in fact, which tend to pick up far more extraneous sounds and amplify them (I’m told). On the down side, reviewers are correct in pointing out that they can be uncomfortable after a while for glasses-wearers, but that’s probably true of all on-ear headphones. It’s not a dealbreaker for me, and the great audio quality and light weight more than make up for any shortcomings. As always, great service from RS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really are good. Already have the i-Grado and the SR80i Grado headphones bought from Richer Sounds in the past. I really love the sound of Grado, that is why I purchased the GW100 Grado headphones. These GW100 Grado headphones are better than I expected. Exceptional Sound is the best description I can give. Five Stars for comfort, Five Stars for build quality, Six Stars sound quality.
