There’s no active noise cancellation or mention of water resistance, so they won’t be ideal for particularly noisy environments or workouts. They’re otherwise up to date, though, with Bluetooth 5.0, touch controls and access to your preferred voice assistant.
The GT220 buds are available to pre-order now for $259 with an expected ship date of October 15th. That’s more than some of its competitors, but decidedly more affordable than high-end options from Bang & Olufsen and Sennheiser. If Grado’s buds sound as good as claimed, they could represent a relative bargain if you’re a music lover who can’t stand wires.
