Grado Statement series GS3000x


GS3000x Headphone

Housing our most powerful driver yet is a metal chamber surrounded by cocobolo wood, elevating the GS3000x to the best sounding Grado headphone in seven decades.

A Spacious Soundstage

Journey inside the music and hear the space between instruments with the unique soundstage of the GS3000x. This is only possible when our large cushions, new 52mm driver, 12-conductor cable, and large housing work in unison. This is the most detail a Grado headphone has ever delivered from your music to your ears.

The Sound of Wood & Metal

Teeming with texture and emotion, cocobolo’s sonic properties and innate mass makes it perfect for our new speakers. We paired this with a metal chamber to add even more mass, which lets us control the rigidity of our largest driver yet. Cocobolo has striking patterns and color that tend to vary from pair to pair.

The Most Powerful Yet

The GS3000x is the first headphone to utilize our new 52mm X Driver. Specifically tuned to embrace the tenacity of cocobolo and precision of metal, 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 first 52mm drivers improve efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.

New Cable & Headbands

Along with the speakers, the cables and headband have been redesigned for the GS3000x. Housed in a more durable exterior, the now super annealed copper 12-conductor cable reveals even more of your music with improved purity. The new black leather headband features a white-stitched accent.

Hand Assembled in Brooklyn

Founded on a kitchen table in 1953, and working with wood for over a quarter century, Grado Labs has been perfecting the art of sonic reproduction every day since. This GS3000x has traveled from workbench to workbench until ready for your ears. Every experience since that kitchen table has led to the creation of the GS3000x.

“…produces one of the most articulate and musical cohesive performances we’ve heard anywhere near this level. It is the kind of presentation that had us listening for hours on end and works well across a wide range of musical genres, from Nirvana to Nina Simone.”

“the Gradio GS3000x is all about the wearer: these headphones “don’t feel their 515g weight thanks to a properly considered hanger arrangement … [while] the foam ‘G-cushion’ earpads stay cool and comfortable even during long listening sessions,” reads our review. Add “exquisitely detailed, naturalistic sound quality” that “will make the best of any source of music,” and you can see why these wired cans are our 2023 award-winning pick.”
