The Grado family company was established in the 1950s in Brooklyn, New York. Ever since the beginning Grado has made artisanal headphones and cartridges assembled by hand. The company, passed down from generation to generation, is beloved for its attention to detail, great assembly quality, and upscale designs. Several different model lines of headphones and cartridges are offered for specific needs and styles: some product series are well-tested longtime classics, while others, such as the GT220 wireless headphones, are new. Each model is the result of rigorous design and careful assembly, thus the Grado Hi-Fi sound experience is superb.
