Conclusion: If it weren’t clear by now, we couldn’t be happier with the Grado SR60i headphones. What they lack in frills or features, they more than make up for in sound quality, combining a wide-open and fairly neutral balance with excellent clarity and detail.
Pros: Wide-open, clear, and well-detailed sound, Awesome midrange and vocal detail, Deep, tight, and articulate bass, Fatigue-free and pristine treble, Sounds great on all different kinds of music, Surprisingly comfortable fit and design
Cons: Space-age looks may be off-putting for some, Foam earpad cushions can wear out over time
Excerpt: Grado SR60i Review The Grado SR60 was first introduced to the world almost 20 years ago (1993-1994). The SR60 was known to be one of the best open headphones that delivered amazingly clear and detailed sound despite the affordable price tag.
Summary: The SR60i headphones are the entry level headphones in the 'SR' line-up. They retail for a recommended retail price of $79. So, without any more delays, let's discuss these headphones in further detail.
In terms of accessories, these are pretty scarce.
Pros: Comfort, sound, value
Cons: Non-detachable cable, plastic build, cable is a bit too long for portable use
Summary: I've repeatedly bought these headphones, despite also owning Stax Lambda electrostatics and more expensive Sennheiser and AKG phones. And, in an even more interesting accolade, when I've bought Stax, Sennheiser and AKG headphones it was when I was a partner in Western Audio of Palo Alto, a dealer in...
Pros: Comfortable for long listening sessions, completely involving, warm and smooth, extraordinarily dynamic and rugged. Very inexpensive!
Cons: Lacks the resolution and the extension of more expensive headphones.
Summary: Let me start off by saying I've been a competitive PC gamer for a quite a while now. I never really cared about sound quality. I've had plenty of overpriced headsets labeled as "gaming headsets" from companies such as Razer, Steeleries, Logitech, etc.
Summary: I got these from a local shop for SGD120, about USD99.
Rewritten the whole review.
First impressions: These headphones are meh. A little overrated, doesn't carry bass very well.
Current impressions: Great headphones for dynamic rock with lots of guitar, drums and forward vocals.
