Grado Releases Their First Wireless Headphones


Grado Labs makes outstanding headphones, and they recently introduced the GT220, their first true wireless pair of headphones. Years in the making, the Brooklyn company didn’t want to rush the process of creating a compact and versatile wireless headphone with such vocality and depth. Easy to always have around, they’re ready when you are. The midrange response is neutral and musical without any coloration, while the bass is definitive with excellent extension. The high frequency response is natural without any stridency.

The GT220 has a bifurcated capacitive touch system: the left side controls phone & voice, while the right side controls music playback. With a twist to lock, the GT220 can create a tight seal in the ear which plays a major role in sound reproduction. Also included is full volume control for when someone’s half awake on a flight and doesn’t feel like taking their phone out. Battery life was a major focus with the GT220 coming in at 36 hours of listening. These are up for anything, from a MARTA ride to work to a coast-to-coast flight. The true wireless headphones hold 6 hours of playtime, while their case can charge them back up 5x over. The GT220 case has both USB-C and wireless charging options.

“I’m pretty excited about finally releasing the GT220”, says Jonathan Grado, VP of Grado Labs. “We’ve been working on these for the last two years, and I’ve been using them almost every day for the past couple months. The battery life and charging options are some my favorite parts, really happy with not having to worry about if they’re charged or not. They kind of just always are. I think my mom is tired of me telling her ‘Look mom, no wires,’ every time I walk by her with them on though.”

We are happy to tell you more about these headphones, order you a pair and should have a pair on the headphone bar soon.
