Engadget Review

Grado Labs’ first wireless headphones sound great, and are light and comfortable enough to wear for long periods of time. However, the signature open-back design that helps create that stellar audio also enables whoever is around you to hear your tunes. The GW100 is best for personal listening in a more isolated space, rather than an every day set of headphones you’d want for your commute, office or a noisy coffee shop.
