  • Summary: I've own/owned every single pair of Grados except the PS1000's. In general, they're great. But the only ones to disappoint are the iGrados (which were a joke), and the SR125.    If you look at the freq. graph on headroom, there is a strong dip in the midrange near the 5KHz range, compared to, say, the SR80i or the SR225i. What the... Grado?   Midrange consequently ain't too great. I'm not saying these are horrible, just not the typical Grado sound you'd expect.
  • Pros: Relatively cheap, comfortable pads.
  • Cons: Strong dip in the midrange frequencies, the SR80i sounds better for less.

  • Summary: Good sounding phone. Bass is controlled, somewhat light, and in no way overpowering. Highs are tamed a bit over the lower models and detail is brought out more. The 8 Cond "i-Cable" is a little bulky, but the advantage it gives these over the SR80i is worth it.
  • Pros: American made, agressive but clean
  • Cons: uncomfortable

  • Summary: These babies can sing. That's all I can say. I had never tried a pair of Grados before these and I'm pretty shocked (in a good way.)    The box leaves some to be desired, a pizza-box style box, with an image of a pair of Grado woodies on it. It has a GRADO headphones name in vintage-ish blue/purple/orange, and a quotation reading "truly the world's finest.
  • Pros: Sound quality, Surprisingly good build quality, works unamped and shines even brighter with.
  • Cons: Minor comfort and sound leakage

  • Summary: These headphones are quite good, and have really great highs.  They are an improvement over the SR-80i, with a more balanced and bright sound with better articulation.  For the money, they are quite good.     These headphones do need to be broken in a bit.  The highs start off a little harsh and tinny, but end up pronounced, but more balanced.  They also need to be amped to get the full sound.  Without an amp, they are dead.
  • Pros: Very good mids and highs, crisp bass, good articulation, no distortion
  • Cons: Not very comfortable

Worth much more than their money.

  • Conclusion: These headphones have been nothing short of fantastic. Just like many of the other reviews will tell you, they are incredibly clear, detailed, full-bodied with a slightly forward sound, which is really live. (without being artificial) Easily powered by my Cowon S9, X-Fi Xtreme Music, and Kurzweil SP2X. Construction is solid, those cables will never break. Ridiculously comfortable, even with my glasses for hours. Top notch buy.

  • Summary: I LOVE listening to music on these cans!  However, I can only do so when home alone it seems.  As with all open phones they can produce quite a bit of sound outside of your ear.  Music has a wonderful punch and brightness when heard through these, and they are very easy to drive without a headphone amp.  I would certainly purchase another pair of Grados in the future!
  • Pros: Great Lively Sound, Made in USA, Quality Construction, Easy to Drive
  • Cons: Bad for and office environment, can get quite uncomfortable after a while

  • Summary: These are superb, they feel good to wear and give top qualty sound even at low volume. Its like listerning to a high quality hifi. My only complaint is that people around can hear your music. But don't let that put you off, even with the small jack pin attached the sound is great.

Amazing sound quality but not durable enough.

  • Summary: These are the best headphones you can get in this price range. Please note that these are designed to be used indoors only. In my opinion Grado needs to improve the physical design of their headphones. After having these for nearly 6 years they started disintegrating. I have always dreamed of the Grado RS1 model but considering the fact that they are based on the same design concept, I would think twice before spending £2000 on a pair of headphones.
