Excerpt: The SR60i headphones have major shortcomings: they are flimsy, and they have no noise isolation. But they excel at in-home listening, especially on portable devices. They offer immersive sound quality without pre-amps or adapters (thanks to the 3.5mm headphone jack). The SR60i, then, are...
Excerpt: Ah, Grado SR-60s. These are my second pair and I've also had a pair of SR-80s back in the day as well. They are some of my favorite phones of all time. They're comfortable once you stretch out the top headband and their sound for their price is potentially mind-blowing. I have more expensive...
Excerpt: I got these to replace my beats by dre studio headphones. My reasoning seemed good at the time, however I do regret the move. I used to fly with my beats and they were great! These don't make good airplane headphones at all, simply not what they are made for. As well when walking around the...
Excerpt: The SR60 is a reasonable choice for your first "decent" headphone. You should be able to get them for something like $70. I was not a lover of headphones, but these headphones were the beginning of the process that changed my mind. You normally turn to headphones when courtesy demands them or...
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: These are very good value for the money. And its in the uppermost I would spend on headphones being used solely on portable audio. They are comfortable and the quality is certainly superior to an Ipod's output.
