These Grado SR60e headphones are the latest development of a legendary headphone set. It builds on all the elements that have made the New York-based brand so popular. The vintage headband design makes these headphones quite unique. The housing is cast in PVC, sufficiently inert to generate no unwanted vibration, and stiff enough to prevent mechanical distortion. In true Grado tradition, these headphones are simple and understated.
The dynamics and transparency are quite surprising. The tonal balance is surely one of the most successful in its range and even above, which gives it unparalleled musicality! It is not idiotic to add it to an iPod or iPad, if the music is not too compressed (WAV or FLAC). The result will get you to drop those dreadful, cheap inner-ear headphones…
Not surprisingly, the headphones are the ones most awarded by the press. Definitely a best buy!
