The usual GRADO design; note that GRADO headphones are not very durable.

The GRADO GS2000e has an almost perfectly neutral sound in the midrange and above. The low frequencies may seem lacking in quantity.

Sound quality general comment
  • Original Sound Fidelity: S-
  • Recommendation: S
  • Personal preference: S

 

Listen to the GS2000e and you will immediately understand why GRADO is such a popular brand. It accurately reproduces recorded sound sources with high original fidelity. The sound balance is truly that of a high-end product, but the only thing missing is resolution.

General comment

The GRADO GS2000e is one of the very best headphones available, reproducing recorded sound sources with almost complete fidelity. Its sound is a bit brighter and details sound a bit more detailed than they really are. It also has an added resonance that makes the music sound richer. If you are looking for a high-quality, top-of-the-line listening headphone, the GRADO GS2000e is one of the best you can get.
