Excerpt: These bulky but effective open-air headphones with solid bass and midrange response are the least expensive headphones we tested that are worth the addition of an amp. If you're into the retro look, value durability, and want an extra-long cable, then the SR60s are for you.
Excerpt: (1 items) Frequently described as "the gateway to audiophile sound," the Grado SR 60 compete with the Sennheiser HD 497 for the title of "best full-size, open headphones under $100"--many headphones that cost twice as much don't sound as good. The retro-styled SR 60 have punchy but natural sound and will floor most first-time listeners. --Dan Frakes Macworld is your best source for all things Apple.
Excerpt: Grado's SR60 headphones are among the most expensive in this test. They look old fashioned, with hard, textured plastic and raised silver lettering around the drivers. You can peer through the vents at the wires and solder inside each driver, but the headphones feel rugged and are extremely comfortable to wear. They come with two metres of thick, inflexible cable. The open back design lets sound pass through, making this one of the most leaky sets here.
