The Grado SR80e headphones are upgrades of the SR60 legendary headphones. 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. It also has the tonal balance of its little brother the SR60 but with a better extension of the bass and a fuller midrange, which gives it unbeatable musicality! It is not idiotic to add it to an iPod or iPad, provided that the content is not compressed (wav or flac). The result will get you to drop those dreadful, cheap inner-ear headphones… Not surprisingly, they are one of the headphones most awarded by the press... Definitely a best buy!
