5 of 5 These headphones are spectacular! May 20, 2020
Reviewer: Jordan Strong from Honolulu, HI United States  
Although the Grado GS3000es feel slightly different than the GS1000es when you wear them, you become used to them extremely quickly (and they are just as comfortable, in my opinion).

As far as the sound is concerned, I can only liken the GS3000es to a fairy tale. If you've heard of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, I would say that listening to music with the GS3000es is like sitting in a chair or lying in a bed that is just right. I can't help but feel as if music just sounds the way that it is supposed to sound when you use these headphones. I consider the GS3000es to be the finest pair of headphones that Grado has made (though I have yet to give the PS2000es a chance).

I suppose that if you are used to hearing music where the bass is more prevalent (or rather, more easily heard), you might be disappointed by how much less you'll hear the bass with these headphones. The bass is definitely still present, but its presence just isn't as emphatic as it is with other headphones.

5 of 5 Statement Model GS3000e April 6, 2020
Reviewer: Robert Lennox from Claremont, CA United States  
After several weeks of daily use, I’ve become more and more impressed with these headphones. All genres of music sound outstanding.
The bass is deep and articulate, mids are well balanced and vocals are spot on.
The treble is detailed but never bright or harsh, and the phones have a huge and wide soundstage with great height and depth to the music. These are the most dynamic and lifelike headphones I’ve ever used, and for me have dethroned my Sennheiser HD800S as my Personal fave.

5 of 5 Most balanced sound I've heard April 6, 2020
Reviewer: Martin Vidal from Irvine, CA United States  
The GS3000e are the only headphones I don't need to EQ. They have very extended and detailed bass, the mids are stellar as you expect from Grado and the highs are not fatiguing. Maybe the less Grado sound I've heard, but it is a good  thing. But be aware, they love power...

5 of 5 perfect headphone ever..... September 10, 2019
Reviewer: JUNKI LEE from seoul, Seoul South Korea  
Best Grado headphone for me was Ps2000e, Rs1i before I got gs3000e. And Now I can tell you guys Gs3000e is best for me. It is surprising, amazing, fantastic! ever...

gs3000e is very similar to gs1000e, gs2000e. maybe that is why bc its name is GS3000e. but gs1000e and gs2000e have little bit sharp sound.(yeah but maybe some people like them bc of it) but gs3000e is more comportable to listen. and bass is way much clearer than 1000e, 2000e.

and I was not that surprised when I listened to ps2000e even though it could express everything on it. ps2000e was too heavy(bass and sound, not weight. ) and distracting for me. but gs3000e is very well-balanced. and compare to rs1i, I think gs3000e is everything is upgraded from rs1i.(especially staging and resolution)

I am big fan of Rock and Heavymetal. but gs3000e is just good for any kinds of music. If you like super heavy exciting sound, then just go get ps2000e. but if not, gs3000e is best way I think.
