Good Headphones, But Too Harsh For Me
I was very excited to give these a listen after reading so many good things about them. That excitement was short lived when I put them on and listened to my favorite rock songs, which these are praised for reproducing so well. To clarify, I currently own AKG Q701's, Phillipps Fidelio X1's, Audio Technica M50's and Fischer Audio DBA-02 MKII. I am no stranger to good sound. That said, these are not for me. Yes, they sound great and are clear and detailed, but these headphones have a harshness and aggressiveness that makes them hard to listen to. They are very bright and in your face, a trait I thought I would enjoy for faster paced songs but in the end, did not. I wanted to like them but couldn't
Great sound but poor quality
I like the sound from these head phones, its very warm and doesnt cause any head aches in the longer hrs of listening. I have several collection of headphones including Bose, Beats, Senns, Beyers, Sony MDR, Audio Technica M50 but these tops them in every aspect. Very light weight and the treble is not harsh at all. But the quality is rediculously poor. I mean cheap cheap plastic and I dont think it will last for a long time unless you are exteremely be care full in handling. If you have case for your iphone or any smart phone forget using these headphones as the 3.5mm pin has very big wider sholder and you wont be able to insert all the way inn. So I bought an small cable extension which I can use with my I phones. Also I noticed the cable got cracks at the Y joint. I kept it and going to add some celo tape on the cable. I will give good ratings for the product "But will not buy Grado again!"
The Grado SR80i headphones are the beat pair of headphones that I've ever owned, and I have owned many pairs of high-end headphones. These have by far the most superior sound quality available for this price range, and even look pretty cool too. Some people may find the ear cushions uncomfortable, but they can easily be replaced. Overall, I would say that the SR80i headphones are the best headphones available for the price range.
Never Used a Better Headphone In My Life
I have owned many headphones, but the Grado Prestige SR80i is the best by far of them all. It is also the Top Choice in it's category at Consumers Reports! Try it, and you will never let it go. Guaranteed
My Grado SR80I
Really good and the best headphone for the price. I used it with my mp3 player and direct to the house music system. I will buy an another for a gift.
Seriously sweet sound with fat round bass just like it was recorded.
No problems with comfort once adjusted and I've travelled with them and am happy with the durability, when boxed.
I didn't realise how much ambient noise they'd let in (a fair bit, when you're listening to dynamic audio) and was disappointed with how much noise they let out (lots - can't use them sitting in the office next to someone or they get annoyed!).
My son needed some decent headphones. He'd been going through earbuds at a rate of say $30 a month. I'd had a pair of SR60s for about five years and was very pleased with them. The SR80is looked like a good deal, so I got a pair for him and a pair for me. Wow! Beautiful sound. Very much like the SR60s, but the bass goes down deeper. It's not forced or overly emphasized, it's just there. These phones are an excellent choice.
Great headphones, as long as you don't mind sound leakage
The headphones are large but relatively light. The sound is great. But they are open-air headphones with an big open area in the back of the headphone. Lots of sound leakage. And it doesn't take a lot of power to produce enough sound. As long as those around you don't mind hearing your sound, you will enjoy these headphones.
This set of headphones delivered exactly what was promised; great sound, superb clarity (IMHO), and good comfort. The only thing to keep in mind is that the open foam means others in the room will hear some...aka not the best choice for airplanes.
Really, really like them; and if they come with a case, an additional benefit!
I am quite satisfied with the quality of the sound. Some people may find these uncomfortable. Bear in mind that after a break-in period, they will become comfortable. Since these are over-ear and maintain a continuous pressure on your ears, I have found that when I bite down (something we all do occasionally and unconsciously), I actually muffle the sound somewhat. A minor annoyance. It seems to have improved with the break-in.
