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: 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: 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: These sound absolutely stunning. I've owned headphones four time the price of these and these out class them all,the sound is detailed,spacious and bassy only when the music demands it not when the headphones decide because that's how they've been tuned. I urge you to buy these you won't regret it.
Summary: I purchased these a few weeks ago. Having quite a few sets of headphones I had previously compared them some time ago, in a Hi-Fi retailer, against my Yamaha HPH-200's which are a direct competitor. I have now sat for hours comparing the two and without doubt they are both 5* headphones.
Summary: For many years I have been completely happy with my Sennheiser HD424 headphones, but recently they have started to cut out intermittantly on one channel. Having read positive reviews, I decided to purchase the Grado SR80e headphones.
Summary: Bought these after Christmas and thought I'd run them in before daring to opine. First caveat is that these cans come with a full sized plug so you'll need an adaptor to use this with an MP3 player. On first listen these cans sound absolutely awful with muddy bass and indistinct mid-range.
