The high end in the Grado Labs in-ear earphone series, the Grado GR10 offers a new benchmark in sound quality while preserving the distinctly clear, world-famous acoustic signature that John Grado & family have spent decades perfecting in their homespun Brooklyn NY facility. Hand-craftsmanship and superb attention to sonic detail are the hallmarks of all Grado products, an old-school ethos perfectly continued in the upscale GR10. Easy-traveling audio performance good enough to make you not miss your big home listening room!

HeadRoom was the first to premiere the top-of-the-line Grado Labs GR10 earphones at the 2010 Rocky Mountain Audio Fest [RMAF] in Denver and we -- along with lucky festival attendees -- absolutely loved what we heard: an extended, intensely detailed top-end response underpinned by wonderfully punchy bass that positively defines the classic Grado 'signature sound' and punchy musical involvement. Expect slightly more midrange presence than in the less pricey Grado in-ear models, a wonderful thing for audiophile listeners seeking smooth definition and full musical body for jazz vocals, singer/songwriter music and well-produced modern & classic rock. As typical for Grado, the bass response is engagingly warm and cleanly textural, but without a trace of bloat or 'one-note' boom. The musical clarity and timbral definition of the GR10 should also please classical and symphonic aficionados given its airy soundstage depth -- a great feat for any in-ear monitor -- that allows instruments to 'float' correctly in the room space image. The consistent tonal balance and elegant rhythmic pace of the GR10 sounds ideal for reference-grade or master recordings and provides pristine access into the previously obscured nooks & crannies of your most well-worn favorites, potentially transforming your portable listening into a newly revelatory acoustic experience.

The Grado GR10 come in a nifty mellow green color that makes them nicely stand out from the other Grado Labs earphones. The packaging contains three sizes of clear silicon eartip sleeves in S/M /L sizing; try them all for the most secure in-ear fit -- and best resulting sound quality. As with the other Grado in-ears, the earpiece fit is not overly invasive or deeply seated into the ear canal, meaning the GR10 remains a great candidate for newcomers to in-ear headphones or for serious audio lovers who demand long-wearing comfort and top acoustic performance from their 'on-the-go' in-ears. The GR10's highly efficient 32 Ohm impedance ensures robust performance direct from your portable player without a headphone amp required. Total cord length is 51 inches and the high-quality cable construction is a pure OFC design with minimal cord microphonics or annoying cable contact noise issues.  A raised dot on the left earphone provides tactile indication of channel allowing the headphones to be worn correctly even in the dark -- now there's a handy feature! The 1-year manufacturer's warranty is provided directly by Grado Labs located in Brooklyn USA.

Amazing Canal Phones
Posted by Sound Designer from NYC on 2011-11-30

Recommend Product: Yes
Pros: Comfortable, HUGE soundstage, that classic grado attention to detail
Cons: price for some people.

I just have to weigh in here. Having been a long time Etymotic user and a fan of very flat and precise headphones I shelled out for the GR10's. I have a pair of SR60's and SR80 and SR225's and have always loved the clarity of that grado sound and if I could get that with an in-ear that would be amazing. My in-ears have been solely ety's up to this point. I have to say if you're fan of the Ety ER4P's or HF2 or 3's sound signature you'll love these canal phones. They sound like the Ety's in their clarity and punch with crystal clear high's but, with more bottom punch to them and a profoundly deeper soundstage than the Ety's. I read a review that if Etymotic were to make a step up from the ER4P then the Grado GR10's would be it and the review was right on the money. I love them. Pricy sure but, you only live once right? and if you have the money to drop, they're worth the money......

Grado GR10 - Hugely over-rated
Posted by Hammer from UK on 2011-03-06

Recommend Product: No
Pros: None
Cons: Everything

Where do I start? First of all, I am massively embarrassed that I bought into the Grado hype and invested in these earphones, based on one or two superb reviews. I have been a Westone fan for a number of years, starting with the UM2 and then moving up to the UM3X. I flirted briefly with the W3, but went back to the UM3X, which is a remarkable set of earphones. However, I thought the GR10s would be a real upgrade from the UM3X. How wrong I was. The GR10 has a terribly thin and scratchy high end, recessed mid and only barely acceptable low end. I'm sure those that think they can see the Emperor's (Grado's) new clothes will claim that the lack of midrange spike is wonderfully neutral. But that would be completely wrong. Now, I've tried the included tips and I've tried Complys. And I've burned them in for 50+ hours. And they still don't sound any better. After spending all this money I really wanted to like these earphones. But the truth is that the Grado GR10 should be avoided at all costs.

My new favorites
Posted by SarahV from Cambridge, MA on 2011-01-20

Recommend Product: Yes
Pros: Clarity, transparency, comfort
Cons: Hissy on lower-quality sources

I was so pleased with my GR8s that when I heard Grado was releasing an upgrade in the GR10s, I had to check them out. They have the same housing as the GR8 (except for the color) so they share the exceptional comfort and ease of fit. Also in common with the GR8s is their excellent imaging, natural timbre and a certain sense of air around the instruments without having a particularly large soundstage (great for listening to small jazz and chamber ensembles/rock bands/etc.).

After a couple of months of listening time, I've found myself more and more abandoning my full-size closed headphones at home in favor of the GR10s - something I've never done with IEMs before. They are really outstanding, with great clarity, detail and transparency. They have the true Grado sound signature, with brilliant, sparkling treble and lovely mids. The sound is on the bright side of neutral while still feeling very balanced and natural to my ears.

The one caution I would give is that they are very sensitive to a poor quality source. They sound fine on my Cowon S9 and iRiver H140 when I'm going portable, but at home, my source (which is decent but not audiophile quality) hisses quite a bit. I think they'd be fine on any decent quality portable source, but beware of sources like computer sound cards.
