Bluetooth wireless headset v.4.2 with apt-X codec - Autonomy up to 15 hours - 320mAH battery
With the GW100, Grado Labs transfers its tradition for acoustic quality and construction technique in the field of wireless audio, creating the first and only open Bluetooth headset (Open-Back). With the new GW100, Grado embraces a rapidly growing market segment, but, as usual for the Brooklyn company, the approach remains "audiophile", meaning that greater ease of use should not be detrimental to performance. Those who know the extraordinary naturalness, linearity, cleanliness and timbric coherence of Grado headphones will find the same genetic imprint in the new wireless model and the possibility of doing without connecting cables will be a further and convincing element to appreciate their use.
There are all the contents that made Grado famous in the audio world, only the cable is missing ....
Thanks to the adoption of the same type of transducers used in the wired models, the result of the experience gained in decades of design and construction, it was possible to create a listening instrument that combines comfort and performance, without the care of an appearance has involved compromising on the other. Everything has been optimized for the reproductive and functional peculiarity of a wireless headset, therefore not only the purely acoustic aspect, which follows paths already widely tested by Grado (choice of materials, choice of transducer and acoustic adaptation to its container), but also all the electronic equipment, a real innovation of the realization, that allows the coupling and the communication with the source devices and manages the optimal transmission to the acoustic part of the headset, as well as the purely electrical aspects that include the 320mAH battery with autonomy up to 15 hours * and the charging function using the supplied micro USB cable.
The adoption of the apt-X Codec for Bluetooth wireless communication v.4.2 enhances the quality of the acoustic realization of the headset by offering it, in terms of performance, the best system available for wireless audio. The provision of a microphone allows the user to operate in telephone conversation where the paired device is a smartphone. Nevertheless, Grado provides a connection cable with a 3.5mm mini-jack termination for the situation in which you want or use the headset in a traditional wired manner.
The unique solution for every listening mode! GW100 grade: hi-fi and freedom.
