Materiality of Sound

Grado has perfected the art of sonic reproduction over the past seven decades. Every experience since our first day at the workbench in 1953 has led to the GW100x and its desired sonic capabilities. Our signature sound in wireless form, the GW100x aims to bring an honest texture to your music.


Two Days to Tune Out

With a more efficient battery and Bluetooth 5.2, the GW100x can now play music for nearly two days straight. Matching our 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.

X Series Driver

4th Generation Grado drivers are here. 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 our 44mm drivers improve efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.

Milestone After Milestone

The GW100 are the worlds 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%.** There is a design language that’s seen throughout all of our headphones since we released our first one in 1991. The GW100x continues this, looking like it’s part of the family simply at a glance. These wireless Grado headphones are a milestone in our seven decade history.

Music, Voice, Volume, Calls

Ignore that one person you’re avoiding and leave your phone in your pocket. The GW100x is capable of letting you control your volume and music playback right at your ear. If your device allows, you can activate your voice assistant and also answers calls. Or ignore them, you know, for that one person.
