While there are tons of headphone manufacturers out there, few companies seem to have the genuine love and enthusiasm for the world of audio that Grado Labs does. Founded in 1953 by Joseph Grado, the company remains family owned, and while they have headphones available for as little as $80, they focus on high-end components and performance to match. Now, with their new e Series of headphones, they’re stepping up their game even further.
It didn’t seem that customers were complaining, but that didn’t stop Grado from taking every single component used in their headphones under the microscope, tweaking each individual detail for maximize fidelity. In a press release issued last week, current CEO and President John Grado says that “the e Series headphone represents our greatest sound to date,” and with the company’s track record, we’re inclined to take him at his word.
In addition to touching on smaller details, the company has overhauled the cone geometries of their headphones’ drivers, which Grado says “tracks music frequencies with unequaled precision.” VP of Marketing and third-generation Grado family member Jonathan Grado says “I’ve been listening to The e Series for a couple of months now, and it’s as if a curtain has been pulled away from my favorite tracks. The sound is so clear it’s hard for me to enjoy music on anything else.”
We’ll be taking a look at some of Grado Labs’ e Series in the near future, so keep an eye out.
