GRADO SR-80 SR 80 SR80 HEADPHONES
Built on the same features as the legendary and
world-acclaimed SR60 but utilizing a four-conductor
connecting cable and larger ear cushions, the
SR80 gives a more open stage. The SR80 delivers
an improved bass resonance, which enhances the
overall detail. John Grado says he strove for
the best sounding phones for the money, and
with the glowing reviews the SR80's have
received, who can argue.
The SR80 offers more articulation and subtlety.
It sounds excellent with portables and inexpensive
home audio electronics. This is best bang for
the buck Grado headphone.

"...these are truly wonderful headphones, they've got the bass energy... ripping into heavy tracks with a gusto that eludes lesser rivals. With vocals they intoxicate with a natural feel and beautifully proportioned soundstage: few headphones can transport you as convincingly... The Grado SR80's are special. Buy'em, and Love'em."
"First headphone ever awarded a "Golden Note Award," presented by the Academy for the Advancement of High End Audio."
-Winner of Audio Video's "Grand Prix Award"
"It figures that these Brooklyn-made phones would kick some serious butt. These babies have a pretty big sound; a powerful, tight bottom end, very articulate mid-range, and a good top end. They have an airy, open quality-less in your head then most phones near their price."
- Steve Guttenberg, Audio Video Vol. 1, No. 4
"If you are looking for a headphone to use as a reference, you may want to go up the line. To me, the SR80 is the price-performance winner."
