Grado Labs is a Brooklyn based company that hand assembles headphones and cartridges. Family run since 1953, Grado has seen three generations: Joseph, John, and Jonathan Grado. As Ars Technica says, “…on a quiet street in south Brooklyn...”, Grado assembles “…some of the most renowned's just the Grados in their narrow townhouse [assembling] the little-known, well-loved line of headphones.”

With being named in the Top 8 Most Social Small Businesses in America, Grado has shown it can adapt while keeping their traditions deep rooted in family, quality, and Brooklyn.
