- What HiFi

Grado has taken one of the world's most legendary headphones and made it even better. The SR80e has a new driver design, a new polymer to damp resonant distortion in the plastic housing, and a new cable from plug to driver connection. The way the SR80e's new driver and plastic housing move air and react to sound vibrations virtually eliminate transient distortions. This allows the signal flow over the new cable to reproduce sound that has improved tight control of the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum while supporting Grado's world renowned midrange. The SR80e will produce a sound that is pure Grado, with warm harmonic colors, rich full-bodied vocals, excellent dynamics, and an ultra-smooth top end.

Quality Product At Great Price

Had to see for myself what all the hype is surrounding Grado headphones. They are unique to say the least. The high end is magical although depending on the music it can be a bit piercing at times. But when its right it truly is wonderful. Bass is much better then reviewers claim surprisingly and nice strong mids. Build is less the desirable they feel and look cheap but I knew that going in I swapped out the stock pads for L Pads and it made them much more musical to my ears and a tad bit more comfortable. Overall happy with the purchase there isnt another headphone in my collection that sounds like Grados.

Love the SR80e's, but not as a primary set.

I love the open back design and the soundstage that goes along with it. They sound amazing if listening to the right content. Sparkly highs, clean, forward Mids and well defined Lows, but NOT deep at all. No Boom found here. High quality recordings are incredibly detailed and expansive. The highs can be a bit much at times, but it seems to mellow out with usage, at least to me. I use these for watching movies, gaming and listening to classical and acoustic music at home. These really shouldn't be your primary headphones due to it’s build and specialized sound. Naturally warm recordings sound best. Build quality is not rugged, the sound fully leaks out being open back, and the cable is clunky & not detachable. Not recommended for office, travel or mobile use.

Best entry-level HiFi

These are a great entry-level open back. They will get you going and give you a feel of what good headphones can be like.
