GW100 v2 Wireless


GW100 is Grado’s first wireless headphone; v2 implements Bluetooth version 5.0 (from 4.2 in the original GW100) with support for the aptX, AAC, and SBC codecs. They work up to 10m away from the source device thanks to an upgraded antenna, have an upgraded 850mAh battery that charges in two hours, providing up to 40 hours of play time (based on a 50-percent volume setting) and a USB-C charging connection instead of micro USB.

GW100 v2 use the same signature Grado drive units as the wired headphones so lose nothing in sound quality, have a built-in mic so ideal for use with smartphones and snug, densely packed foam on-ear pads, swivel earpieces and broad headband, so are tough enough to take a daily commute while still offering long-term comfort. And best of all, they sound fantastic.

Since 1953 Grado Labs has adapted at our own pace and the first wireless Grado headphone is only the first step in what’s to come. We took our time to get the sound just right and made no compromises in the GW100. Nothing is lost except the wires.

Inside the GW100 are none other than our signature Grado drivers. These speakers are the same ones we build for our wired headphones, which are finely tuned for the different enclosures we use. Grado Labs’ first wireless headphone is no different, with drivers configured specifically for them. The desired sonic capabilities of the GW100 would not be possible without decades of experience in driver design.

The GW100 are the world’s first open-back Bluetooth headphones. Their speaker housings and internals have been designed from the ground up, now working in tandem to notably diminish escaping sound by up to 60%.*

There is a design language that’s seen throughout all Grado headphones since we started building them nearly 30 years ago. The GW100 continues this, looking like it’s part of the family simply at a glance. These wireless headphones are a milestone in Grado’s 65 year history.
