Every audiophile in the world knows that Grado Labs is the Rolls-Royce of the Hi-Fi audio industry. The Brooklyn-based company produces high quality phono cartridges and the world’s finest audiophile headphone amps and headphones in the world in all price ranges. Over the past 60 years, Grado Labs has been producing highly regraded audio equipment, but kept surprisingly low profile for the most part, relying mostly on the word-to-mouth advertising within the audiophile community. The company’s policy is the exact opposite to mass production, as all trademark open-air Grado headphones are handmade in the United States and carefully scrutinized to meet the highest audiophile standards.

Grado Labs has recently joined forces with Dolce & Gabbana, the famous Italian luxury industry fashion company and the result is a high-end pair of headphones with a touch of pure style.

Mahogany

Wood is one of the favourite materials of the high-and audio manufacturers and Grado is no exception. The Grado GS1000i headphones and other Grado flagship models were also made with mahogany components. The precious mahogany will definitely bring warm, rich and precise sound to your ears.

Design

If someone ever wanted to find the weak point of any Grado headphones, it could have been the design. The style reminiscent of the communication devices from the 1940s is appealing to most users, and as it has always been about the sound, comfortableness and the overall build quality, even the ones who found the Grado design funny soon learned to live with it. This time, however, the Italian aesthetic upgrade is clearly visible. Dolce & Gabbana x Grado DS2012 Headphones are impeccably designed and come in an elegant and luxurious package.

Wrap-up

When it comes to audiophile headphones, you can’t go wrong with Grado Labs. When it comes to style and luxury, you can’t go wrong with Dolce & Gabbana. DS2012 Mahogany Headphones blend the best of the two worlds, the American technology and the Italian style, so there’s no doubt this is an exceptional piece of audio equipment. The only drawback can be the price, but we are sure these headphones are worth every cent.
