A visit to Grado’s Brooklyn headphone factory

Steve Guttenberg mugshot

The Audiophiliac visits Grado's Brooklyn factory to document the fabrication and assembly of the most affordable "e" Series headphone, the SR60e.

Steve Guttenberg:Grado manufactures all of its new "e" Series headphones (and phono) cartridges in a funky looking four story building in Brooklyn, NY. There's no "Grado" logo or signage of any kind, just a graffiti covered door on the storefront. I've been there before, but most first time visitors probably think they wrote down the wrong address. I rang the bell, and was greeted by a smiling John Grado, and after we said our hellos he introduced his son Jonathan, who just recently joined the company. Grado is a family-owned business, founded by John's uncle, Joe Grado, in 1953; it started making headphones in 1989.
