Grado Labs GH2 Cocobolo Headphones

We are firm believers that all music fans should own a pair of superb high fidelity headphones. They’re an excellent thing to have when you can’t blast tunes from your stereo and they can also bring out subtleties in music that you wouldn’t otherwise notice. Coincidentally, Grado Labs has just released their newest edition of their Heritage Series hi-fi headphones. And let us tell you, they are something special.

Already equipped with some superb technology – including dynamic transducers, a nominal impedance of 32 ohms, a UHPLC copper voice coil, and a HPlC copper connecting cable – these headphones are excellent. But the brand has taken things a step further with the inclusion of a tone wood resonation chamber. For reference, Cocobolo (the wood Grado has chosen) is a central american lumber that is renowned for its tonal properties. In fact, it can be found in the construction of some of the world’s best guitars. So when Grado makes the claim that these are some of the finest headphones they’ve ever built, you should probably believe them. Get a pair for yourself for $650. [Purchase]
