SUPERLATIVE SOUND, AUDIOPHILE QUALITY

COAST, B&H Photo
18 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Grado is a grand old name in the audio industry. I've been buying their products for decades. With the GR10, the company outdoes itself. The music is pure, balanced, silky and open, with performers sounding as if they're only a few feet away. Conventional wisdom has it that in-ear phones can never rival the large over-the-air "cans." Grado has now reversed that conventional wisdom. Great product.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Excellent Stereo Effect, Good Bass, Great Sound, Lightweight

  • Summary: I am lost for words for 2 reasons, 1st: These in ears behave much more like over ears headphones in all the good ways. 2nd: these deserve to be much more popular than they are, I am simply shocked that there is not much more renowned! I currently own the Shure SE535's as well as Sennheiser IE8 and have used and owned many of the 500 and under earphones, such as Monster Turbine Copper Pro and Etimotics.
  • Pros: Lots of space, instrument separation, depth, huge sound stage, highs that are not piercing(does not hit the wall of comfortable listening, so small
  • Cons: None for me, life is way too short to grumble about the price. It is cheaper than competing brands!

  • Summary: Gear used for testing: iPod Video 80gb (5th gen, Rockbox) + Fiio E17   Test tracks: "Survival" by Muse, "Take the Power Back" by Rage Against the Machine, "Finally Free" by Dream Theater, "Hessian Peel" by Opeth, "Sacred Worlds" by Blind Guardian   Sound quality and signature: Not transparent. Presentation is upfront.
  • Pros: They've managed to capture the Grado headphone sound with these little babies.
  • Cons: Isolation. The tips are kind of small "than they should be," at least for some people.

GR10

Eagle1776 from Spokane, WA, Sonic Electronix
2 December 2010
  • Conclusion: The GR10 I purchased from Sonic Electronix is my favorite earphone, and I have owned many, including Shure SE535, Sony EX1000, Westone 2, 3, UM3X, 4, 4R and the Etymotic ER4P. The GR10 (a moving armature) is a rare find in the crowded iem world. It has amazing clarity and is still musical w/ quality bass and amazing treble and lush mids. I believe it is the single best iem I've heard. While it lacks the weight/timber that the W4 has, the GR10 has a stunning clarity.

WOW!!!

lil Nicky from Portland, Oregon, Sonic Electronix
2 December 2010
  • Conclusion: I really like how Grado kept the small design like they used on the GR8. Very lightweight and compact so they can really be used for anything! I've used the GR8 a few times and was impressed, but I heard Grado was working on a new model so I held out and kept using my Skull Candys... well worth the wait. I read they used an improved armature driver and its got a much lower impedance. Overall great balance!!!! Incredibly smooth!!!

Incredible In-Ear Monitors for the iPod

Jason S. Ganz, B&H Photo
17 November 2010
  • Excerpt: When I bought a pair of GR8s for my girlfriend's ipod as a birthday present and saw her eyes light up, I knew that Grado was onto something special with their line of japanese-made in-ear monitors (IEMs). The deep soundstage, the ability to detect on even 128kbps MP3s bass and high trebles without shrillness or dropout, and the definition of each instrument was incredible, and I figured could not be exceeded by Grado. I was wrong. The GR10s do just that.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Don't Color Recordings, Good Bass, Lightweight, Neutral yet VERY defined
  • Cons: No Case Included

An earing-ing explosion at a price

paulbnet , johnlewis.com
25 March 2013
  • Summary: The headphones are mind blowing, I have had many different high end in-ear phones but these are in a different league, I recommend these if you have an Ipad as even with sound limiting the result is still like putting your head in a bass bin at a Jean Micheal Jarre concert. Using a Creative Zen Juke box circa 2002 with high quality MP3's produces an experience that is like having your ears filled with expensive Swiss chocolate. Fanastic build quality.

takes a week to run in, but perfect after that

carlos, Amazon

  • Summary: very good product at very good price delivery on time, no problem i have other grado headphones for home use - these are just as good, maybe better at first they sound thin, but after a week of use & careful choice of the ear pad size, they open up after that, they sound very detailed, with strong sense of presence in the mid-range & very very realistic way too good to use just with an ipod overall, i can recommend

Remarquable

Beru, son-video.com
7 October 2013
  • Summary: Un fois mis en place (un peu délicate, la qualité du son dépendant vraiment du parfait positionnement), le son est tout simplement fabuleux, détaillé mais équilibré, avec un grave tendu et profond, articulé et un aigu d'une finesse et d'une extension que je n'avais jamais entendue avec un intra-auriculaire. je possédais un Klipsch Image X10 et un Shure SE 425, pourtant excellents, ils sont vraiment surclassés.

  • Excerpt: Стандарты качества звука на высоте, хотя и тональный баланс несколько иной, чем у традиционных Grado, нет такого пика на hi-mids, более выровненные в плюс средне-низкие, разборчивость на уровне топов, но из-за тонального баланса звучат чуть иначе, кажется немного темнее. У некоторых людей, в том числе меня - вызывают адский дискомфорт при одевании (до боли), так как чтобы они зазвучали/появился бас (которого там достаточно) - необходимо Полностью герметично засунуть их в...
  • Pros: Качество звука, чувствительность, компактность.
  • Cons: Сомнительный комфорт, чувствительность (у меня слышны наводки от экрана), тонкий провод.
