About the Grado Hemp Headphones

Limited edition headphones, handmade from hemp 

Well, we've always said that Grado loves to experiment. And the small-batch Hemp headphones might just be the company's most ambitious (and fun) creation yet. For the first time, the Brooklyn headphone shop used hemp for their legendary hand-crafted earcups.

Grado challenged themselves to make the Hemp headphones sound as fun and distinct as they look.

Limited edition headphones, handmade from hemp 

Well, we've always said that Grado loves to experiment. And the small-batch Hemp headphones might just be the company's most ambitious (and fun) creation yet. For the first time, the Brooklyn headphone shop used hemp for their legendary hand-crafted earcups.

This machined version of the industrial hemp plant provides a sturdy, wood-like structure that looks sharp. And the material's natural acoustic damping lends some smoothness to Grado's dynamic sound signature. You still get those active, lively mids and articulate highs, but the hemp helps mellow out harsher tones. 

A homegrown tale

If you're unfamiliar with the Grado story — or sound — consider these headphones a "gateway" of sorts. For the past seven decades, this family-owned company has built audio gear by hand from the same modest factory in Brooklyn. In lesser hands, you might dismiss these headphones as gimmicky — not here! Even when they're pushing the design envelope, Grado takes a measured, old-school approach. 

And the Hemp headphones are hardly their first buzzworthy release. Years back, Grado came out with another limited edition headphone sporting ear cups made out of maple. So as their engineers "trial-and-errored" their way through harnessing the tonal qualities of hemp, they turned to that familiar wood. A hand-carved inner sleeve of maple helps lower distortion and extend lower frequencies for deep, true-to-life bass.  

Hemp headphones with ear cups flat

The Grado Hemp headphones took two full years to go from a half-baked idea to a set of high-performance headphones.

Drivers purpose-built to perform

The custom-built dynamic drivers are voiced specifically for the hybrid hemp/maple enclosures. Grado puts all of their diaphragms through a "de-stressing" process that ensures they perform well in the vented, open-air housings. Grado headphones are known for their spot-on imaging where vocals jump out in front and every instrument has a sense of place.

Classic Grado design

Grado's gone back to their more traditional "F" ear cushions for this model. These thinner ear pads position the drivers closer to your ears, so the overall presentation is more immediate and lively. You can replace these pads with Grado's larger, thicker "L" cushions, but just note that the sound will be a relaxed a bit, along with the fit. 

The rest of the design is all Grado — old-school metal frame and leather headband. The eight-conductor connecting cable is terminated with 3.5mm miniplug and a 1/4" adapter is included. While these headphones are efficient enough to play with your phone or computer, I always recommend you connect to a headphone amplifier for the best sound quality.
