It was Grado’s goal to design affordable street style headphones for Christmas. The iGrado is functional, stylish, lightweight and comfortable. The model incorporates the same drives used in the highly regarded SR60 headphones, giving you high end tech for under £40. With a dynamic transducer, open air operating principle and a weight of just 3oz.
These compact in ear headphones nestle within the ear canal, maintaining an excellent air seal for improved bass and reduction of outside noise without causing discomfort. The headphones feature a dynamic driver and the raised dot on left earphones provides tactile indication of channel allowing earphones to be put on correctly even in the dark. Best mid range Grado headphones at just £84.50.
Grado PS1000 Headphones for Christmas
The Grado PS1000 are Grado’s top of the range headphones. Their design uses specially selected pieces of handcrafted mahogany; made by using an intricate curing process. The outside coating is made from metal and has been machined from a special non gloss, hard metal alloy that utilises a special processing and casting method to increase the porosity of the alloy, so then this combination of wood and metal is designed to stop any ringing’ which can obscure fine detail the audio. £1520.00
