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
