Headphone Design

Headphone Type

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

On-Ear
Headband Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Over the Head
Specifically For
Some headphones can use an IR Transmitter in your vehicle, while some can be plugged into your media device and be used on the go or at home.
Home/Portable
Acoustic Principle
The basic design of the headphones. There are 3 different types: Open: Have ports that allow air through the back of the diaphragms, enabling the headphones to sound like the music is coming from an outside source. Closed: Completely sealed and have no air passing through the diaphragms. Sounds like you are in a closed off room. Semi-open: Have slots or ports in the back of the cup and are partially open. This allows for a mixed sound between an open and closed headphone.

General Features

Noise-Canceling
Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.

These headphones have a companion app available from the manufacturer. These apps are generally available on both the Google Play Store and iTunes for Android and iPhone use. They usually include an equalizer and other controls to give you complete control over your music.
Equalizer/Tunable
This means the sound of these headphones can be customized to your listening preference through either an app or on-board controls.

An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".

Great Cans!

November 28, 2013

I was so impressed with the Grado SR-56's that I didn't hesitate ordering the 125i's. Though I feel the 56's have better balance in the entire frequency spectrum and are the best headphones I've found in their price range, the 125i's stronger high end response and detailed, solid bass at double the price, have grown on me over time. They are especially well-suited for acoustic and classical recordings. Like the 56's, they are light and very comfortable to wear. They excel in clarity of the stereo sound stage and transient response characteristics. For audiophile wanna-be's, like myself that cannot dish out the big bucks, these Prestige Series cans are an excellent investment.

These headphones have been nothing short of fantastic. Just like many of the other reviews will tell you, they are incredibly clear, detailed, full-bodied with a slightly forward sound, which is really live. (without being artificial) Easily powered by my Cowon S9, X-Fi Xtreme Music, and Kurzweil SP2X. Construction is solid, those cables will never break. Ridiculously comfortable, even with my glasses for hours. Top notch buy.

In shorter words: Like a more lively and detailed Beyerdynamic BT990.

After reading all sorts of reviews I felt comfortable buying the Grado's. The reputation of the Grado company is well known in the audio crowd, and has been for as long as I have heard of people using their gear.
