Summary: WOOOOOOOOW. music never sounded this good. metallica, guns n roses, AC/DC, System etc. all sound f'n amazing. guitar sounds like its next to you. you can play these loud as hell and wont even realize it, the sound is so natural.
Summary: Few years before i had sr60 and they amazed me, very confy and gread sound. So i got the sr80 and they are just as same as sr60. Sound is great only when you turn it the volume they start to lose the quality and make weird noize. So keep it low and enjoy the music!
Summary: I've had a pair of SR80's for just under 2 years now and they've fallen apart. First I had a wire break inside of the tubing, causing a loss of sound in one side. Now the ear pads are deteriorating, leaving foam bits all over my face. They were great well they lasted.
Summary: Although I have been an audiophile for years, I have never managed to get into the headphone thing. I found that kind of listening too claustrophobic. When I bought a decent mp3 player and loaded it up with a few thousand WMA tracks, I thought it time to try again.
Summary: I did a lot of research on high quality, reasonably priced headphones and the Grado SR80's kept coming up. For the price I paid (around $90) I felt I didn't have much to loose. Boy am I glad I went ahead with the purchase. The sound from these headphones is outstanding.
Summary: Typical Grado entry level headphones. Now don't get me wrong, these are a good value for its low price going, but they are without a doubt entry-level. The overall sound is pleasant and engaging, specifically in the highs, but that doesn't always mean quality.
Summary: These things are the real deal. Anyone who has ever listened to mine agrees. Pretty much everyone here does. Every range is represented fully and the best word I've heard used here to describe the sound is "spacial". The are open ear design has its pro's and con's but for the house it's great.
Summary: This is a superb entry into the realm of the audiophile. The SR80s have a very 'musical' quality. By that I mean there is not one single definable aspect that makes them stand out; music on these cans sounds more alive, involving, immediate, exciting and, well, musical.
Summary: Due to my recent downgrade, I'm left with these as my only headphones. And that isn't a complaint, these are very very good headphones for the $85 I got them for. I've had a sweet tooth for progressive rock and older heavy metal music lately, and let me tell you, these babies really shine with...
Summary: I have had these phones for several years. They were purchased when I got my first headphone amp, the Total Airhead (2-AA version, 2001). I have found that these are a nice headphone for its price.
