Description
What does the i stand for in the new GS1000i from Grado? Improved, that's what! Featuring a new species of handcrafted Mahogany earpieces made using an intricate curing process; Grado has been able to optimize the tonal quality. The GS1000i uses new upgraded dynamic transducers and the new 8 conductor cable design. All this, new wood, driver and cable designs result in improved control and stability of the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum with both better supporting the GS1000i's new world renowned midrange.

4 Star Review  productwiki.com - Jul 22, 2011

The Grado GS1000 is a high-end headphone from Grado Labs. The first and only circum-aural headphone from Grado - a great plus for those who feel the comfort of the series is lacking - the GS-1000 also differs from the Reference and Prestige series with a vastly differrent sound signature and expanded sound stage - also thanks to the large salad bowl pads. ... PROS: (1) High precision in sound imaging, noticeable difference over lower Grado models (2) Superior clarity to the RS-1 (3) Sound quality and clarity only improves with use, long burn-in period makes listening rewarding (4) Oversized bowl cups increase size of the soundstage noticeably over lower Grado models (5) Soundstage quality is very close to more expensive headphones ... CONS: (1) Really need a dedicated amp to achieve the peak level of quality (2) Moves away from the standard Grado sound signature

5 Star Review   Crutchfield.com   

Crutchfield has collected 3 user reviews for this product with an average rating of 5.0 out of 5 stars. The most recent reviewer said, "I began writing my review and realized it was almost identical to the excellent review of VanD above. I echo his comments regarding the great sound quality of the Grado GS1000i's as well as the outstanding Crutchfield customer service. I own the Grado RS-1i's, which are also fantastic headphones (I became a Grado-phile after comparing the RS-1i to my Sennheiser HD-650's; the Senn's sounded muffled compared to the RS-1i's, and I had been a die-hard Senn-ophile for years). A big difference between the Grado RS-1i's and the GS-1000i's is in soundstage, perhaps due to the ear cup size. Bass is also much higher quality and presence in the GS1000i. There is a definite difference in the frequency response, which you can look up easily online. It's nice having both sets of cans; I use my RS-1i's for computer listening (iMac > Musical Fidelity V-DAC II > Grado RA-1 amp) or iPod (Cypher Labs Algorhythym Solo > ALO Audio amp) for the immediacy. I listen to my GS-1000i's at home (Arcam DC37 > Benchmark DAC1 HDR or Mac Mini with Amarra software > Musical Fidelity V-Link 192 > Benchmark DAC1 HDR) as they better approximate listening to speakers than headphones, so it's comfortable listening with them in my main audio room. Thanks, Crutchfield for the great service."
