Mahogany and Maple, classic tone woods married in audio bliss. The GS2000e combines them in the same manner that luthiers have done for centuries, and for the same reason: resonance. Different types of wood sing with their own personalities.
We’re not comparing ourselves to Stradivarius but one of our customers did. He said it in French so we’ll paraphrase…
The hand-crafted mahogany and maple merged enclosures are a realization of the knowledge from the experience that only Grado Labs knows from working with wood. This technique is used by the finest musical instrument manufacturers from the past and the present. The use of Maple gives the energy of the sound of music to be fully transmitted, then the Mahogany allows it to open up and reveal the true harmonic structure as well as the space that the artist intended
In addition every component in the GS2000e is considered carefully, the new purpose built 50 mm drivers, the 12 conductor ultra high purity copper cable and ear cushions, all work together for an engaging musical experience. This organic approach embodies what is truly artisanal and is the essence of how we can effectively connect to the music.
