There is no wired sound on top, but headphones do the best to make the most of Bluetooth. As the final example of this, Grado now delivers its $ 249 GW100 headphone. This is Grados first wireless headset. As with the rest of the company's setup, it's open headphones – so you will not use them for commuting on the subway or in noisy environments.
Grado says these are the first open Bluetooth headsets on the market. It's a mix that does not seem ideal for all listening situations, but the opening design gives a broad sound experience and greater detail, according to the company. "Someone believes that wireless and open backs are a strange pairing, but now you can enjoy high quality audio files without getting tight," says the company's website. "Whether you fly fish or just clean the runs, you will not have wings dangling. But you want amazing Grado sound."
Grado says these headphones were built from scratch to reduce noise levels by 60 percent. So outside noise will come in, but hopefully your melodies will not be so obvious or annoying to people around you.
Inside the GW100, nobody is the Grado car's signature. These speakers are the same as we build for our wired headsets, which are finely tuned for the various cabinets we use. Grado Lab's first wireless headphone is no different, with drivers configured specifically for them. The desired sound features of the GW100 would not be possible without decades of experience in driver design.
The GW100's have Bluetooth 4.2, and for codecs, they support apt-X and AAC, but not apt-X HD or LDAC. Battery life is estimated at 15 hours. There is a power button, a volume picker, a 3.5 mm connector for connecting, and a Micro USB port for charging. You can also buy a tripod or case for the headphones as well.
