Inside Grado Labs: A legacy of hand-built headphones Unless you're really into headphones, it can be easy to overlook Grado Labs. The likes of Bang & Olufsen, Bose and Sony crank out new models every year -- sometimes multiple new headphone options in a 12-month span. As I would discover, Grado's smaller [...]
Ears-on time with Massdrop's affordable tube headphone amplifier Next up, my Grado RS1 headphones always benefit from being used with tube amps, and sure 'nuff the RS1 loved the Eddie Current ZDT Jr. The amp tamed some of the headphone's brightness while fleshing out the midrange a bit. Drummer Antonio Sanchez [...]

Schiit Audio's tiny, but powerful $119 tube headphone amplifier I liked it best with Grado headphones, especially my SR225i and RS1. The Grado/Schiit synergy was perfect, the Vali warmed up the Grado sound just a bit, and I've heard Vali also clicks with AKG headphones. Bob Marley's "In Dub Vol.1" CD had a pleasantly ... [...]

There's an old adage folks like to dust off whence we suffer some loss, as wrenching as it is inexplicable, not unlike a late April ice storm, midst that initial gush of springtime bloom, which heretofore has served to affirm the promise and wonder of life and renewal after such a long, harrowing winter: "They say only the good die young."©Mandala by Mary Morgan Stern/Collage by John PotisBe that as it may, from time to time, the ill-tempered Desert God of my Old Testament Tribe is apparently...

Disclaimer: I picked up this Grado GH2 at Fujiya Avic’s 2017 Spring headphone show from Grado’s Japan distributor, Knicom. I got it for like 50$ off the regular modest gouge of 650$ or so. It’s a Grado. Single driver. Wood. Sponge pads. Leather headband. Aesthetics straight from the early 90s. And it’s an awesome, historically connected headphone.I find it strange that I’m the only Grado super fan and evangelist at Headfonia. Grado rock. Grado headphones look great in photos. Headfonia’s...
