Grado GR8 Review

Digitaltrends
21 April 2010
  • Conclusion: The Grado GR8 in-ear headphones might best be described as the audiophile’s in-ear headphone. Unlike their multi-driver counterparts, the unique design of the GR8’s allows them to offer an extremely coherent sound that rivals larger, on-ear or over-ear designs. When well sealed within the ear, the GR8 offers a respite from most of the noise around the listener. They are as comfortable as they are great sounding and may be the lightest set of in-ears we’ve ever tested.
  • Pros: Highly accurate sound, Solid performance to price ratio, Lightweight and extremely comfortable
  • Cons: Lightweight cord tangles easily, Limited selection of ear-tips, No carry case or adapters, Thin, feeble feeling cord, No cord clip

Grado GR8

What Hi-Fi?
14 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Grado could easily ignore the in-ear market, safe in the knowledge that it manufactures some of the finest ‘on-ear' headphones that money can buy. But no: Grado is branching out into this sector with a pricey pair costing £300. The GR8s certainly don't look as snazzy as some near rivals, offering a more subtle and understated look.
  • Pros: Precision, detailed, understated looks
  • Cons: No carry pouch, lack a certain richness and natural delivery

Grado GR8 earphones

iPhone World

  • Excerpt: We don’t know if they loosened up or we just got used to them, but with each use, they started to become indispensable. So lets break down what it is that is so “right” about these earphones. We listened to the GR8s for almost 2 months, testing them in all kinds of musical genres which, in turn, also let us get used to them. Like we said earlier, they took some getting used to. Initially, we had a seal problem.

  • Summary: Подведём итог. Продукт получился продуманный, однако комплектация скромная, хотелось бы увидеть в комплекте чехол, раз уж кабель несменный.

  • Summary: В звучании немного приподнята область 80 - 300 Гц, но это единственное заслуживающее внимания отклонение в тональном балансе, причем, скорее, даже полезное - при прослушивании музыки в самолете, в условиях повышенного «мидбасового» шума, музыкальный баланс будет казаться образцовым Джон Градо - создатель целой линейки первоклассных домашних стереотелефонов открытого типа, которые так высоко котируются у аудиофилов - наверное, даже и не подумывал о разработке вставных...

  • Summary: GR8 внимательно всматриваются в музыку и не упускают ни грана акустической информации. Однако голоса оказываются не настолько естественными и достоверными, как у лучших соперников. Компания Grado могла бы вообще игнорировать рынок вкладышей: ее «головные» модели - одни из лучших в мире. Однако Grado поступает ровно наоборот; что же такого особенного могут предложить вкладыши за $385?
