Grado Announces The Hemp Headphone

Hey dudes and dudettes. Time to roll a fatty and go shopping for some groovy cans. The first of its kind, hemp finds yet another purpose in The Hemp Headphone. A brilliant, warm, and precise sound rolled into a Limited Edition Grado.

Grado’s Hemp Headphone

Grado wasn’t sure how this idea would turn out. But they were blunt in saying that The Hemp Headphone has become one of their favourite models in the Limited Edition line-up.

Why Hemp?

The highly compressed hemp creates a damping effect between their fibers. This produces a fuller sound, comprised of a noticeable low end and a top end that extends smoothly to its limits. The hemp may be doing the heavy lifting, but the hemphone is a joint effort. They built maple into the housing to help balance out the sound, and bring out the sonic properties that maple is capable of producing.

Specially Tuned Drivers

With some trial and error, the Grado drivers built into the hemp housings were specifically tuned for this new material. And like the saliva dampened doobie that I’m smoking, The Hemp Headphone is a slow burn, so, it should constantly get better with every listen. 

Hand-Built in Brooklyn

Each Hemp Headphone is hand-built by Grado’s team in Brooklyn. Fine rolled for every genre of music, hemp and maple work together for the first time to bring a new level of vibrancy to our Limited Editions.

The Hemp Headphone will start shipping in late June. Visit Audio 46 to secure your pair.
