Summary: Look, I know I'm stepping into the lion's mouth with this one, but these headphones just aren't comfortible enough to be considered spectacular. OBVIOUSLY the sound is great, but a feature that is almost important as sound, when it comes to headphones, is comfort. After all, music is meant to be listened to through speakers, so if you're willing to strap those speakers onto your head, you'd better be able to deal with them on your head for an extended period of time.
Summary: These headphones are generally regarded as the best-in-price point. Don't believe a word of it! They are over priced with poor build quality, mediocre sound quality and they are so uncomfortable they are like having your ears sandblasted. I think because they are made by Grado everyone thinks they can't say anything bad about them. Well here goes: They are impractical! You really need a pre-amp to drive these, you can't just connect them to your ipod.
