Grado GW100x Wireless Headphones
Grado GW100x wireless headphones offer better Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, longer battery life and improved Grado X Drivers compared to the company’s original wireless model, GW100 headphones.
With a more efficient battery and Bluetooth 5.2, the GW100x can now play music for nearly two days straight.
Matching Grado’s GT220, USB-C is now included, bringing the GW100x in line with global charging standards. The upgraded chipset allows more information to flow from your device to the GW100x, all while maintaining a strong connection.
Since 1953 Grado Labs has adapted at their own pace and the first wireless Grado headphone is only the first step in what’s to come. Grado took their time to get the sound just right and made no compromises in the design of their new wireless headphones.
Inside the GW100x are Grado’s new X Drivers.
These speakers are the same ones Grado build for their wired headphones, which are finely tuned for the different enclosures Grado use. Grado Labs’ first wireless headphone is no different, with drivers configured specifically for them. The desired sonic capabilities of the new GW100x would not be possible without decades of experience in driver design.
X Series Driver
4th Generation Grado drivers are here and specifically tuned for the wireless GW100x. This new speaker design features a more powerful magnetic circuit, a voice coil with decreased effective mass, and a reconfigured diaphragm. Reengineering these components for Grado’s 44mm drivers improve efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.
Grado GW100 wireless headphones are the world’s first open-back Bluetooth headphones.
Their speaker housings and internals have been designed from the ground up, now working in tandem to notably diminish escaping sound by up to 60%.*
Grado wireless headphones are a milestone in Grado’s seven decade history.
