Grado Announces New True Wireless Earbuds

Everyone’s favorite Brooklyn based headphone manufacturer is back with a new venture. Grado has entered the true wireless game with the new GT220. Grado has been around for decades designing quality headphones, and over those years have come up with a sound all their own. They now look to bring that sound to true wireless.

Easy to always have around, they’re ready when you are. Grado seeks to deliver a  neutral mid-range response that’s musical without any coloration, while the bass is definitive with excellent extension. The high-frequency response is reportedly natural without any stridency. Grado spent as much time as needed tuning and fitting their signature mini-drivers for these TWS headphones, giving just as much dedication as they do to their full-sized drivers.

The GT220 has a bifurcated capacitive touch system: the left side controls phone & voice,
while the right side controls music playback. With a twist to lock, the GT220 can create a tight seal in the ear which plays a major role in sound reproduction. Also included is full volume control for when someone’s half-awake on a flight and doesn’t feel like taking their phone out.

Battery Life

Battery life was a major focus with the GT220 coming in at 36 hours of listening. These are up for anything, from a subway ride to work to a coast-to-coast flight. The true wireless
headphones hold 6 hours of playtime, while their case can charge them back up 5x over. The GT220 case has both USB-C and wireless charging options. Whether they’re being thrown on for a quick charge before a run or plugging it in overnight, the choice is the listeners.
