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

"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!!!"

Jico Shure VN35E

Compared to VN35HE, it needs more tracking force for cleanest tracking of sibilants, 1.5 g (VN35HE is OK at 1.3 g). Tonally, it is closer to original Shure elliptical stylus for V15 III, still tiny bit brighter but very good overall. Slightly less good at inner grooves then Jico HE version, but better overall balance is a plus.

Great Item Great Price

Item was great, priced fairly. Customer Service contact could have been better.

Tough to Beat at the Sale Price

This cart/stylus combo is an improvement on the giant slayer AT-3600L with the carbon fiber cantilever and conical stylus. It adds the more refined elliptical stylus to the same cantilever and body. A sale price of 35 bucks is a no brainer. At regular price of 75, I'd probably go with the stock configuration for a third of that, then upgrade the stylus to the Vividline stylus, which is a world beater combo for 100 bucks..

Replacement for Pfanstiehl 767-DED 767DED needle stylus

Just humble

It was the exact stylus and I received it in a reasonable amount of time
