Housing our most powerful driver yet is a metal chamber surrounded by cocobolo wood, elevating the GS3000x to the best sounding Grado headphone in seven decades.
The Sound of Wood & Metal
Teeming with texture and emotion, cocobolo’s sonic properties and innate mass makes it perfect for our new speakers. We paired this with a metal chamber to add even more mass, which lets us control the rigidity of our largest driver yet. Cocobolo has striking patterns and color that tend to vary from pair to pair.
X Series Driver.
The Most Powerful Yet
The GS3000x is the first headphone to utilize our new 52mm X Driver. Specifically tuned to embrace the tenacity of cocobolo and precision of metal, this new speaker design features a more powerful magnetic circuit, a voice coil with decreased effective mass, and a reconfigured diaphragm. Re-engineering these components for our first 52mm drivers improve efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.
New Cable & Headbands
Along with the speakers, the cables and headband have been redesigned for the GS3000x. Housed in a more durable exterior, the now super annealed copper 12-conductor cable reveals even more of your music with improved purity. The new black leather headband features a white-stitched accent.
Hand Assembled in Brooklyn
Founded on a kitchen table in 1953, and working with wood for over a quarter century, Grado Labs has been perfecting the art of sonic reproduction every day since. This GS3000x has traveled from workbench to workbench until ready for your ears. Every experience since that kitchen table has led to the creation of the GS3000x.
