Grado SR80e On-Ear Headphones

Product information

The Grado SR80e is built with the same features as the SR60e, but utilises a 4 conductor connecting cable and the diaphragms are put through a special 'de-stressing' process in order to enhance inner detail, the result of which gives a more open stage.

The new SR80e has an upgraded driver design, and Grado have enlarged and improved the mass distribution in the plastic housing. The way the SR80e’s new driver and plastic housing moves air and reacts to sound vibrations are now unaffected by transient distortions.

Providing an improved bass resonance, the SR80e enhances the overall detail. You will notice improved control of the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum, producing a sound that is pure Grado - warm harmonic colour, rich full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics and an ultra smooth top end.

Q & As

Grado SR80e On-Ear Headphones 4 5 4 4
Must have Bought these for my son as are highly recommended for his Music Technology A Level course. Apparently they're "transparent" which is a very good thing! You will need to buy the case though if you want to take them anywhere. 29 October 2012
bulky headphones I did not share the high opinion of WHICH in regard to these headphones. I found them to be bulky and ugly, and the sound was not as sharp as I had hoped for. 09 May 2012
stunning sound, but not for everybody The fidelity of these earphones is awsome but they have been made with a very particular and perhaps uncompromising philosophy. Their open design means that they let noise in -- great if you want to hear the door bell but it makes them unsuitable for extended listening a noisy environment. They also leak noise so they will be unsuitable for use in quiet public places. With regards comfort they (and you) do take some wearing in. I am one my second pair of Grados and find them extremely comfortable, and will happily listen to music for many hours at a stretch. If comfort is important and you don't think you will have the patience to get through the breaking in you might want to pass on these. But the key factor is the fidelity -- it seems you have to pay silly money to do better. I know music producers who will not monitor music on any cans other than their SR80is -- you hear everything. 23 December 2011
