Grado have introduced the GW100x Bluetooth open-back headphones – the third edition of this technology. The latest model offers a newly enhanced fourth generation X series driver design, superior Bluetooth 5.2 wireless technology and 46-hour battery life.
This GW100x (£249 / $275) offers Grado’s enhanced fourth generation X series driver design which features a more powerful magnetic circuit, a voice coil with decreased effective mass, and a reconfigured diaphragm. The re-engineering of these components for our 44mm drivers improves the efficiency while reducing distortion and “preserves the harmonic integrity of your music”. Based on the original GW100 design, the speaker housings and internals have been designed from the ground up, now working to diminish escaping sound.
The GW100x now features the low energy and low latency Bluetooth 5.2 technology for improved battery life and a more robust connection. Also on board is the dynamically adjustable audio codec, aptX Adaptive, as well as standard AAC and SBC codecs. Enhanced pairing also lets you switch between two devices more efficiently.
Improved battery life now offers up to 46 hours** of listening on a two-hour charge (now via USB-C). Forget to charge your GW100x? You can use the supplied 3.5mm headphone cable to connect to your device for continuous playback.
Lightweight and comfortable, with a padded headband, the GW100x is “the perfect choice” for long listening sessions enjoying your favourite music. “The built-in microphone makes taking a phone call or getting on a virtual meeting simple. Easy to locate controls on the earpiece offer you full functionality, and you’ll also have the ability to control your GW100x from your connected device.” It says here.
