Grado Labs is a Brooklyn based company that hand makes headphones and cartridges.
The finest Transducer
Family run since 1953, Grado has seen three generations: Joseph, John, and Jonathan Grado. As Ars Technica says, on a quiet street in south Brooklyn is a manufacturing operation that produces some of the most renowned headphones, it's just the Grados in their narrow townhouse making the little-known well-loved line of headphones."
The Grado family makes exquisite headphones by hand in their Brooklyn facility. Each iteration of their products represents a significant step forward in sonic reproduction. Grado's headphones have already been called "The finest electricity-to-sound transducer in the world".
