Grado Labs E Series Headphones

A company like Grado Labs saying it has improved its headphones formula, is like the late baseball great Tony Gwynn saying he had figured out a flaw in his stance—can you really improve upon perfection? Grado says so.

The new e Series is a line of over-the-ear cans that the company is calling a breakthrough, with every single component, surface, and material used representing an upgrade in the name of outstanding dynamics and fidelity. Each pair is made by hand in Grado’s Brooklyn facility and features “the most refined driver geometry” in Grado’s history. Their proprietary SpaceBlack Polycarbonate is designed to absorb excess energy and reduce secondary impulses for a clearer tone, while Rhodium, the most expensive precious metal on earth, is used to prevent corrosion on connectors and unwanted graininess in in the audio. The e Series uses select Mahogany tone-woods for their natural ability to reduce sound coloration, and the magnetic field of the headphones has been fine-tuned for symmetry throughout the full range of the voice coil. Sounds like someone is trying to hit .400. [Purchase]
