Summary: They look like they were designed to augment a 1940's bakelite radiogram but the sound is brilliant and the fit is comfortable. Having grown sick of tinny sounding, flimsy offerings from Sony and Senheisser they were well worth the extra money
Summary: The best: Fantastic sound. And they always fit - when I bike (with a helmet), when I work out, when on airplanes. My first pair faulted (after several years with heavy use) in the connection between the thin wire and the headset itself.
Summary: First thing, if you're wondering to upgrade your stock earbuds...for the love of god just do it. The first step up is the biggest; move from the white things to these and you it will honestly blow your mind. Now as to whether these are better than the others in this price range..
Summary: Ok I use a nice pair of Sennheiser for most of my needs (much more comfortable).. But these sound way better. I have been snowboarding and jogging and everything with these, and the sound is just So good.. I expected it to deteriorate a bit like how my main set have but no..
Summary: I have had my Grado Igrado's for a year now and can say that the sound quality at this price is second to none and significantly better than most. They have stood up to general wear and tear without any problems and although it is not important, yes the sticker is still in place.
Summary: I'm on my third pair. I don't believe you will find a better pair of neckband headphones. The bass is amazing. Grado have improved the wiring because it used to be very flimsy but now it seems to be okay. They're really worth the extra few quid.
Summary: if you have allready read any of the oather reviews you will know that some people think that these headphones are uncomfotable, the solution to this problem is to try them on in a shop before buying: if there uncomfatable don't buy them, but if they are comfotable buy them because the sound quality...
Summary: I use these commuting around London! Forget what people say about them making too much external noise as when you are on the underground or DLR there is too much external noise already to make people notice. I find them very comfortable and hardy. No issues with discomfort and I wear glasses.
