Grado is a family-run headphone manufacturer from Brooklyn, New York, with a seven-decade history. It focuses almost exclusively on open-back headphones and is thought by many to produce some of the finest examples in the world. In 2018, it introduced its first Bluetooth model, the Grado GW100. The heritage was plain to see, but the wireless functionality opened up a new world of convenience. Now, the brand has launched the GW100X.
