Grado's phenomenal ranking is sending shockwaves through the headphone industry. No brand of headphones has ever captured so many of the top ratings at once, with Grado products in 5 of the top 10 spots on the list. The next-closest competitor had two spots. It is clear that Grado lives up to their motto "Truly The World's Finest", earning recognition as one of the most important headphone manufacturers in the industry.

John Grado, President of Grado Labs, was understandably excited. "Here at Grado we are popping the champagne corks and toasting. The top consumer rating magazine in the world has come out with their latest list of the top home/studio style stereo headphones under $350. We are honored to have numbers 1 and 2 but flabbergasted to have 5 of our models selected in the top ten of that list. Five out of the top ten is the most any manufacturer has ever received. Raising our glass, here's to us."

The vast majority of their products are hand-assembled in that very same facility.

As the official home of Grado products online, every purchase from 4OurEars is fully guaranteed to be an official product, and comes with the full USA warranty. With so many knockoffs and gray-market products on the market today, this is a vital distinction for consumers who want to make sure they're getting the best headphones available.
