Dolce & Gabbana And Gradolabs?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have read up information regarding Grado teamed with the premium clothing designer D&G and made a signature headphone model with the etching: Dolce And Gabbana  -   Grado

 

the Headphone looks to be based off the GS1000i. only with minor external differences.

 

the question is; Is Grado moving toward a different advertising/ endorsement business move?

 

besides, here is some pictures grabbed from google:

Hrm,

 

I would not want D&G on my headphones. My glasses? Sure. But headphones? No. I think Grado is good enough.

 

Alas, more marketing. At least it will bring business to USA Grado which is a good thing.

 

Very best,

Well at least the pizza box is gone, hoping they can take the new box and apply to the other units eventually :)

It looks more like the headphones were made FOR him/her. they've got his/her name engraved on it, s/he probably paid good money for them.

EDIT- (after i actually READ the articles XD) wow.... i dont see really any difference in the actual phones. I wonder why they did this?

it obviously looks to be a Marketing thing. more like a company Endorsement by a premium clothing company. i say good for both of them. Grado headphones (especially the wooden ones) have a very Appealing look.

I think they match with the D&G Company's style very well.

 

 

but i hate looking at a fashion perspective.

They ARE still a pair of re-etched GS1K's
