Grado Announces Hemp Limited Edition Headphones

Grado is the legit old-school high-end headphone brand of choice if you want a no-nonsense open-back set of cans that will last forever, are made in the USA and sound phenomenal. Now the company introduces a new headphone that incorporates Hemp in the housing.

Grado says this is no gimmick. The company took on the challenge of using hemp as a material without specifically knowing the results. But now that these headphones exist, Grado says " To be blunt, this is one of the best sounding Limited Editions we've built." Yes, there's a pun in that sentence.

The highly compressed hemp used in the manufacture of these headphones affords a high degree of vibration damping, always a good characteristic for any transducer enclosure. Some maple is mixed in. It is a Grado tradition to focus on the effect of housing material on its transducers, and this Hemp model is no exception.

Hemp headphones are hand-built in Brooklyn, NYC so if you want an all-American product that stands on its own for value and quality, this is a great way to go. The company has been in business since 1953 and began building headphones around 1990, so they are clearly doing something right.
