Grado Labs is launching a pair of limited edition cans inspired by the swinging ’60s

Love, peace, and top-notch audio

Grado Labs newest over-ears are quite unlike anything we’ve seen before. Simply dubbed ‘The White Headphone,’ the silky smooth cans are a limited edition version of Grado’s GS1000e. Prestige Series that’ve been enhanced with a brushed aluminium housing that dampens distortion and slick 1960’s styling inspired by the look of one very famous record. Hand-built in the company’s New York headquarters, The White Headphone also packs an 8 conductor cable to better control the upper and lower ranges of the frequency spectrum to deliver pitch perfect midranges, and an open air design that should create a more natural soundscape. The White Headphone (£795) will be available in “very limited” quantities when it arrives this August, so it’s probably worth keeping an eye on these bad boys.

I’m a freelance games and technology journalist currently mashing my keyboard in the name of fine institutions like Stuff, where you'll usually find me waxing lyrical about the latest mobile morsels. I've also been known to cook up some decidedly delicious reviews from time to time, and was once dubbed 'the games industry's answer to Nigella Lawson' by someone probably somewhere.
