It’s not like Grado to rush to be first into a new sector of the market. But the good news is: the GT220 true wireless earbuds have been entirely worth the wait.
On paper, the GT220 seem to have their work cut out. $259 / £250 / AU$365 for small, humdrum-looking true wireless in-ears with no active noise-cancelling and no control app? Even though the battery life (36 hours in total from the buds and their charging case) is competitive, even though touch- and voice-controls are very welcome, and even though the Grado name carries a lot of credibility (and consequently expectation), how are the GT220 meant to stand out in a market that’s already awash with alternatives at every price-point?
