Oh, what a time to be alive. Our favorite Brooklyn-based headphone company has released an audiophile grade open-back can with the notorious and quite luxurious men’s online buyer guide, Uncrate. Meet Limited Edition Grado Uncrate GS2000e Headphones.
New Limited Edition Grado Uncrate GS2000e Headphones
The literal love child of Grado and Uncrate bring audiophiles a beautiful black-on-black headphone. The exterior consists of a bison leather headband and ebonized mahogany cups with internal maple parts. The original version is marked by an incredibly detailed low end with excellent separation. The mids are just as detailed and accurate with a tinge of brilliance on the high end. The Limited Edition Grado Uncrate GS2000e is just as pristine, but with a sound signature all its own. Uncrate says, it’s “an organic sound that’s full of unrivaled detail, rich vocals, and a huge soundstage with deep lows.”
The headphone costs $1400 and is unfortunately sold out at the moment, but I advise checking back to see if you can get your hands on these babies, here.
