The GR8 is a wide bandwidth balanced armature design which results in a musical clarity and character that is the signature of Grado engineering and voicing.

An additional benefit of this design is that it results in a device that is smaller and lighter. The small size allows the earphone to nestle well within the ear canal, maintaining an excellent air seal for improved bass and reduction of outside noise without causing discomfort.


  • Raised dot on left earphone provides tactile indication of channel allowing earphones to be put on correctly even in the dark.
  • 3 pair ear tips (small, medium, large; proprietary blend of two silicon rubber materials)
  • Ear wax proof cloth x4
  • Ear wax proof cloth ring x2
