Know about Grado Labs GS3000e

Grado Labs GS2000e got 5/5 all star rating on AV Forums:

The Grado GS2000e is a full size, open back home headphone and the larger of the two members of the Statement Series which itself is only below the Professional Series in the product hierarchy. The principles that it works to are extremely similar to other Grado models, but by the time you reach this price point, they can be honed and refined to the exact direction that the company wants to, with far fewer of the compromises that creep in at lower price points.

    Just finished building these and I’m impressed. Took me no longer than 30mins to get these soldered, dry fit, and assembled. I’m going to glue them after I confirm they’re working as expected.

    I’m not an audio tech or anything like that so I can’t comment on the sound profile beyond saying they sound amazing to me. I had a pair of Grado SR125s back in the day and these sound better. I don’t know if I could quantify the better. I’m using the G pads, and the artificial leather headband.

    I took a star away as I had to fix the MMCX connector on one of the cups. It was mounted far too close to the wood and wouldn’t allow the cable connector to connect correctly. A little bit of gentle sanding and an exacto knife later, it’s connected. Just adding an extra mm of clearance would make all the difference.

    Thanks Stephen, glad to hear your building went well.
    For the comparison between GS3000e and SR125s, they do have measurable difference which we’ll publish the frequency responses for DIYer reference, and both are legacy “Grado sound”.
    And appreciate for pointing out the issue of MMCX, the root cause could be the cable being a little bit short, which we will fix ASAP.
