Conclusion: I love that Grado sound. These seemed reasonably priced and I was in need of some better in-ear headphones. The first thing I noticed when I tried these on was that my ears instantly felt broken and the sound was missing something - music seemed lifeless.
Summary: This will appeal to people who already know the Grado brand, who are looking for that ''airy '' open sound you find in open headphones. Would not recommend this if you're a bass-head or into music that's bass heavy.
