Whether it’s the roof of a concert hall or the body of an acoustic guitar, using the right materials to enhance acoustics is essential to capturing the essence of the music being played. Headphones are no exception. While wireless connectivity, hands-free operation, and noise-cancellation highlight the modern features of top-notch headphones, being built on anything but pristine sound just seems extraneous. The Grado Hemp Headphone Limited Edition harness hemp and maple housing to enhance the resonance of its de-stressed drivers. The result is a frequency response between 13hz and 28kHz that brings high fidelity sound to everything within that spectrum.
Highly compressed hemp housing uses its dense composition to balance fuller sound, from bone-rattling baritone bass to the highest pitched notes from the voice of a soprano. The hemp joins the maple housing Grado used in other models of its headphones to enhance acoustics. Like every other pair of Grado’s headphones, this limited hemp edition is built-by-hand at the company’s Brooklyn headquarters.
