Ah, summertime in New York. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and Grado has just announced its newest headphone, the White Headphone. Taking inspiration from the watershed Beatles album, the White Headphone promises a new spin on the classic Grado sound. I’ve been a huge fan of Grado since I tried the luscious RS2e back in 2013. But news of a new Grado model has me reeling.
Grado White Headphone Announced!
Utilizing a maple wood housing with a solid white platter exterior, the White Headphone will add to Grado’s copious limited edition offerings.
A more compact ventilation system provides just one of the benefits of the platter exterior; it also adds more mass to the maple enclosure. This could translate into a warmer flavor in comparison to Grado’s last maple wood offering, the GH1.
Complimenting sound with style, the White Headphone will feature a black leather headband with white stitching.
“The inspiration goes back to my youth and my love of music, especially rock & roll in the 1960s.” -John Grado
The White Headphone will retail for $795 and will be available from July until the end of 2019.
