Know about Grado Labs GS2000e
Grado Labs GS2000e got 5/5 all star rating on AV Forums:
The Grado GS2000e is a full size, open back home headphone and the larger of the two members of the Statement Series which itself is only below the Professional Series in the product hierarchy. The principles that it works to are extremely similar to other Grado models, but by the time you reach this price point, they can be honed and refined to the exact direction that the company wants to, with far fewer of the compromises that creep in at lower price points.
The DIY kit is pre-assembled as displayed in the product pics, including:
- 2 X EDL GS2000e Mahogany wood cups, preinstalled with 2 X cup holders (brackets) in silver or black
- 2 X front covers (driver housing), 3D printed with highly durable engineering plastic
- 2 X G-Cushions, 2 X L-Cushions and 2 X S-Cushions
- (optional) 6N OFC, silver plated, 8 cores hi-end cable with carbon fiber enhanced 3.5mm jack and MMCX connector
