Grado GH3 Heritage Series Headphones

In stock

The Limited Edition GH3 Headphones are the newest addition to the Heritage Series from Grado Labs. Handcrafted with Norwegian Pine, these headphones are smaller and more compact than their companion, the GH4.

The GH3 is the first entry-level pair to be released in the Heritage Series, using thinner cuts of wood but still housing Grado signature drivers. These limited editions are the first Grado headphones to utilize the warm and textured tonal abilities of Norwegian Pine. We sourced a specific species of this wood for the housings, searching for the right patterns and musical character desired for the GH3. A combination of a quarter sawn cut and a special curing process, without which building these pairs wouldn’t have been possible, help bring these pairs to to life.

Grado GH3 Entry-Level Heritage Edition Headphone
The Grado GH3 earcups are quite small, which I expected for a Heritage edition that's half the cost of the older GH1 and GH2. The drivers are 44 mm, which I presume is the same with the other Heritage headphones. So the real questions for me were about the soundstage and the bass response. My listening says that the soundstage is slightly less than its larger cousins, and the bass is less strong. I've found that the quality of the GH3 is good enough that typical bass-boost settings compensate the sound nicely, while maintaining a clean tight bass. I haven't found the soundstage to suffer in any respect, but if the user demands the same absolute soundstage as the GH3's larger cousins, then they might be disappointed. Highly recommended for the value.
