  • 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. A good majority of my scores feel into 5's across the board, but don't get me wrong, they indefinitely favor the highs.

  • 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 electric guitars. Very forward, and in-your-face. No soundstage to speak of, which I really couldn't care less about unless I'm in the mood for some Stravinsky or Beethoven.

  • Summary: EQ Lowdown: Bass: it's not the tightest thing i've ever experienced. although you can definitely feel the bass and definitely understand its presence, it beckoned the question (at least to me): is it flabby? it may sound like it, but in reality, it's just loud and tight-ish (bordering on flabby) mids: very nice mids, although a bit recessed. i wouldn't want to use these solely for vocals, though.

  • Summary: Questionable build quality. Bass is taught, impactful, and detailed, in short stunning for the price. Detail across the spectrum is also on par with headphones worth 3x as much. Mediocre comfort, a sharp peak in lower treble and sibilance all contribute to a fatiguing listen however: not for everyone.

  • 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.

  • Summary: A nice balanced headphone that I will probably keep in my collection for as long as they stay in one piece. The plastic construction is not very good looking but seems like the type of plastic used if durable enough. A good pair worth the money.

  • Summary: The SR80s are the cheapest headphone I would consider audiophile-worthy. They do just about everything right tonally with very good levels of insight and detail. More than anything, they don't do much wrong which makes them listen-able and non-fatiguing. At this price, there is no headphone which offers more neutral or punchy bass. Transients exceed many loudspeakers costing over $1000.
