You can buy the biggest, craziest speakers out there, and they still won’t sound as good as a pair of finely engineered headphones. Music just sounds better when listened to through great headphones, as they’re designed knowing exactly where your ears are. Regular speakers need to take into account room size and shape and where you’re positioned in relation to the speakers; not so with headphones.
So with that in mind, these Grado GS1000 Statement Series Headphones are perhaps one of the finest ways to listen to your favorite music out there. The trick is that they have a wooden air chamber that creates the ideal space for sound to travel in before reaching your ears. It’s like they designed two tiny rooms with the perfect acoustic space and put your ears in the sweet spot, which is something speaker designers would kill to do. So you basically have some of the best speakers available in some of the best design available combining to create perhaps the best headphones available. What’s not to love about that?
