Excerpt: The grado sr80 were my first audiophile headphones and I was blown away after letting them burn in for a period of 30 hrs. They are very detailed and produce amazing bass. I was not a believer of audiophile headphones and always thought they were too expensive, but after listening to these I was converted. You experience sounds you never heard before in some of your favorite songs and you just can't take them off your ears.
Summary: Acabo de conseguir estos auriculares para sumarlo a la familia, y la verdad que me ha dejado muy conforme, recién escuche un par de albumes y tienen una respuesta en frecuencia muy agradable, los agudos no son incisivos, los graves son profundos y controlados, y la presencia de frecuencias medias no es exagerada. Yo los recomiendo como todos, he quedado muy satisfecho.
Pros: Comodidad, respuesta en frecuencia, diseño, precio
Summary: Buying these, changed the way I listen to music
I HATE THESE HEADPHONES, THEY TURNED ME INTO A AUDIOPHILE
they taught me that there is more to music, then what I was listening to
Before, on my Senn HD 201s, I could hear the music
These, make me listen to the music
I hear sounds and tones that before, I didn't know existed in the music
the sound stage is wide and amazing
Cover one side of the open phones and the music cuffs out.
Pros: Amazing Audio, great cord, basic design
Cons: Swiveling headphones, headband, earpads, the cable connections
Summary: First "audiophile" approved heaphones I purchased. They have introduced me to subtleties in my music I never new existed. I am now listening to a lot more music than before. From my fiio e7 they are perfectly powered and give just a fantastically rich, detailed sound. For anyone who is wondering what all this audiophile nonsense is about, buy these and get back to me if it really is all nonsense afterall. I'm sure your opinion will have changed.
Summary: I owned these a long time ago so this brief review is written from memory.
The Grado SR80i may be the best rock headphone for the price. The in your face presentation of the sound, the sharp mids and highs and tight bass really brings the listener into the music. The problem is they may be too in your face. They feel as if sound is being injected into your ears while the mids and highs that were once fun are now very bright and causing fatigue.
Summary: Grado SR80i Review I’m going to review every little thing about the SR80i, so get ready.Additional Details: I bought the SR80i around Christmas of last year (2012) and ended up returning them because of a lack of bass and poor comfort. I’m now much more experienced with headphones and audio in general, so they don’t sound really bad, or feel as uncomfortable. Let’s start out with something basically insignificant, the packaging.
Excerpt: These headphones create great sound and look pretty stylish. I have a few bones to pick with them though, they are not comfortable at all, and the earpads that come with them are junk. The little leather piece to hold the headphones on your head is not comfortable at all either. If you are going to wear these you better not be worried about how your head feels after a few minutes.
