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.
I have modded my Grado SR60i a little. I had the plastic grill and button removed, a painstaking task, but well worth the time and effort.
Summary: This review is an unbiased opinion.
This post is coming from a consumer foremost as I can't really call myself an audiophile yet. With that said, there are definitely some things wrong with these headphones. First of all, they are really harsh which makes them uncomfortable for listening. I use headphones to relax, not to be keyed up which also means I can't imagine wearing them to sleep. I have to resort to EQing which isn't recommended.
Pros: clear and bright
Cons: Piercing, harsh, fatiguing, soundstage like IEMs
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. You get the headphones, and a snap-on quarter inch adapter. That's it.
Build/Design - Now, if a regular person looked at these headphones, they would probably say that they are ugly and bulky.
Pros: Comfort, sound, value
Cons: Non-detachable cable, plastic build, cable is a bit too long for portable use
Summary: I bought these headphones 6 yrs ago and they have been used fairly lightly over this period. Regarding quality of manufacture they are very good, there having been zero problems with them, they look good and I have no doubt will continue for many years without problems, as long as they are looked after. One deficiency they have, which is why 4 instead of 5 stars, is they do lack a little in bass response. However, mid and high range is very good.
Summary: These are great headphones. The sound is very clear and I can wear them for hours, very comfortably. The product is extremely well built and very durable. They are excellent value for money and I would recommend to anyone. They only downside is they leak a bit of noise. But this is a very minor problem overall.
Summary: After reading reviews i bought sr60i to use with ipad retina, before i used sennheiser mm60 what is actually same like sennheiser px 100 (not px100ii), and grado sr60 is much worse headphone, lot of upper mid coloration, kind of boxy sound, vocals and highs are much cleaner on senns, so if you are looking for headphones for ipad 4 or samsung galaxy go for senns mm60, much lighter, only problem is that you have to buy 3,5mm extension cable as original is quite short if...
Summary: Brilliant. A little light on bass, but more of a natural sound. Sound is nicely spaced and detailed. Very happy with these headphones. Had some Seinheisers 450 HDs, I think. These are on a par, a little bassy (probably more natural sounding) Try Volume Logic on iTunes, with a little EQ AND Spotify Premium (with high-bitrate switched ON and normalization switched OFf)
Summary: These cans sound brilliant. They also look fantastic, which y'know, is important. The main problem with these is that they leak sound like crazy. You couldn't get away with wearing these on the bus or in bed while you're girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/husband is trying to get to sleep. Shame really, but a great pair of headphones.
