The Grado GS-1000 GS1000 headphones are the finest headphones made by Grado to-date. The new GS-1000 GS1000 Statement Series headphones incorporate a redesigned driver, a new and larger wooden housing and much larger foam cushions that are extremely comfortable.

Grados new cushion design actually creates a room for the ears to sit, creating a larger soundstage and greater spatial experience for the listener. It was most important to design the correct balance between the driver and the new wooden driver housing to deliver the desired sound. By creating this room for the ears to sit, positioning of the cushions with regards to the ears (i.e., forward or back) is somewhat critical in finding the absolute sweet spot. Also, with the new cushion design, the Grado GS1000 headphones have become one of, if not the most comfortable headphones on the market today.

The new designed driver delivers a top to bottom sound that is extremely balanced. The mass distribution within the new larger wooden housing has also been improved. The way the new driver and wooden housing work together to move air and react to sound vibrations are less affected by transient distortions. The Grado GS1000 headphones offer excellent control over the upper and lower frequency spectrums while better supporting Grados world-renowned midrange.

The Grado GS1000 headphones offer rich full-bodied vocals, excellent dynamics and an ultra smooth top end. The presentation is very detailed, the bass is deep and the music is very tight and non-fatiguing. All with a soundstage that is huge allowing for unbelievable separation and layering of the music which is simply stunning.

What people say about the Grado GS-1000 GS1000 headphones

"But theres more to the GS1000 than just soundstage. The overall sense of neutrality and transparency. The effortless and liquid midband. And the bass strong yet perfectly controlled and detailed. The GS1000 may be as close to a perfect headphone as Ive so far heard."
Jude Mansilla - Founder of Head-Fi.org

"The GS1000 is a fantastic headphone for every musical taste. It is my headphone of choice and for good reason. Its soundstage is huge, the highs are detailed, the mids are sweet and the bass is deep and rich. Oh, and it's comfortable to boot! Way to go John!!!"

New Life for Shure V15V

The Shure V15 has always been an even handed, great tracking cart. Perhaps verging on the boring, for some tastes. The JICO SAS styli retain the lush midrange, even handed presentation of the cart, but with a shot of adrenaline and perhaps a tad more revealing than the original styli. Super product!

Happy

Works a treat on my JVC quadraphonic system and despite the dreaded custom charges, it was still cheaper than modern equivalents and NOS stylus available elsewhere.

Nothing Like the Real Thing

When Shure was no longer a stylus option, and I saw JICO here n there (ahem ahem) I was suspicious, but thankfully checked the sole supplier I saw website directly, LPTunes, and got a Straight Answer ASAP to my question whether their stylus were refurbished or factory NEW, which they proved to be. Not only do my LP's play CLEARER than they did with the SHURE styluses; they actually play LOUDER! Could be Just My Imagination. Who knows?
