Grado Labs, the legendary audio brand, just launched the company’s first open-back Bluetooth headphones, the GW100.
The Grado GW100 boasts the classic Grado design and same drivers/speakers found on their wired headphones. Like their other headphones, it was specifically tuned for different enclosures that they are using.
Grado also claimed that their speaker housings and internals have been designed from the group up to notably diminish escaping sound by up to 60 percent.
Its dynamic driver has a frequency response of 20Hz to 20KHz, 99.8 dB SPL 1mW, and 32 ohms of impedance. It also has a mic sensitivity of 42 dB +/- 3 dB.
The exact Bluetooth version is has is Bluetooth 4.2. It also has the aptX audio codec for real-time and near lossless audio streaming which is perfect for the audiophile market of Grado.
It also has 320mAh of battery capacity. According to Grado, it can last for up to 15 hours on a single charge.
It will also cam with a micro USB charging cable and a 3.5 mm audio cable in the package.

There’s no word if it’ll reach other parts of the world yet.
But, I’m very interested!
