”Frontrunners in the budget wired headphones field.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

Step-up in sound

The SR80x headphones are where the Grado Prestige series began. Stepping up on the SR60x model, the SR80x features de-stressed drivers for a broader and more open sound. The style has stayed the same since 1991, making these headphones a true icon of headphone design.

Fourth generation, X Series driver
The fourth generation of SR80 gets the latest X Series drivers for reduced distortion and enhanced response. Tuned specifically for the SR80x, the combination of more powerful magnets and reduced voice coil mass helps improve the headphones efficiency and speed of response. This not only reduces distortion but also improves the harmonic response, meaning the sound is closer to the original than ever.

Durable design
Always a durable design, the SR80x features an even tougher cable. Essential in a pair of headphones that are designed for music on the move, the high quality connection cable has a more durable exterior. Folding earpieces make the headphones easy to pack once you’ve arrived at your destination.

Improved comfort
Fully adjustable earpieces and soft foam pads have always made the Prestige headphones one of the most comfortable in their class. Now featuring a padded headband, the latest version are even more comfy, making longer listening sessions fly by.

Hand-built in Brooklyn
Each pair of SR80x headphones is hand-built in Brooklyn. With a history that stretches right back to 1953, the company is still run by the Grado family, giving continuity to the product design and style. Evolution rather than revolution has kept the Grado headphones at the peak of their game and top of their class.

Hear what a headphone icon sounds like, with the Grado SR80x.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulously natural low-end. I do love these headphones, despite the fact that their open-back design has more leakage than the Titanic. The bottom end sounds full and natural, and the separation is excellent. The mid frequencies tend to hide the vocals a lot of the time, but maybe that's my age - all headphones seem to do the same these days. The build is solid, they look pretty cool, and the jack lead is almost industrial strength. My only real gripe is that I'd have preferred a plug-in (ie replaceable) jack lead so that I could quickly attach a much shorter lead for when I'm walking around the house with my mobile phone strapped to my belt. Wrapping the lead around my neck isn't the best of looks. But it's a small gripe, considering how happy I am with these headphones. Far better than the Sony WH-1000XM3s they replaced in terms of sound quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent headphones Bought these a week or so ago following the advice of Josh at the Plymouth branch. They're perfect for my needs - comfortable & with a great sound. This is why I come to Richer Sounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Detailed Sound With these headphones I am hearing sounds that I have not noticed before. I am pleased with the purchase. I will swap between the convenience of existing blue tooth headphones and these offering more detailed sound as the mood takes me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality and sound (once played in) Bought to replace my ten year old pair of SR80's which have been superb and are still going but unable to get the foam ear pads as they have now worn through to the speakers. These new SR80x's are going to be just as good once played in for a few more weeks as my old pair of SR80's, I am now starting to get the rich full balanced sound once again. I use them to listen directly to digital mp3 and 4 files on an old iPad and the sound is incredible. As good as listening to vinyl (surprising but true!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Headphones at a great price from RS. I purchased the Grado SR80x, two weeks ago from RS in Bristol. The sound quality is excellent, as was the price. Top advice from Jack on the product. Very happy repeat customer. Thank you RS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound Needed a good pair of headphones for both playing and listening to music. These fit both bills brilliantly, awesome accurate sound reproduction from piano keyboard, tv, or music system. Can wholeheartedly recommend. There is some leakage as they are open back but nothing too much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grado SR80Xs are Great Listening to my Vinyl through my Turntable Technics GR1210 and Marantz 6005 series amp and CD. Picked up sounds and instruments that I hadn’t heard before through my decent Monitor Audio Bronze 5s. All bought through Richer Sounds, why?, because they know the products they sell, very friendly and offer help when setting up your system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the first decent pair I got 50 years ago Simple, solid old-school cans that have a genuinely realistic sound when compared to some of the wireless rubbish on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Present The we bought for a sceptical husband who did not think the would be that great. Then he tried them and his words were 'oh my god these are incredible!' - job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blown away! I’m absolutely blown away by the sound quality of these headphones. I’m not usually one for open backed headphones, but I can’t fault these at all. Plenty of bass without being over powering, clean mids and highs. What more could you ask for! Oh and they are super light and comfy, just be aware that the cable is super chunky!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your feet will be tapping If you like subtle, drive on. There's nothing for you here. Being open backed they leak sound like the proverbial sieve. But if you love music and want to be involved when you listen then click "Buy". They have a lively sound, an expansive sound stage, due to being open backed. My music taste is very catholic. It may be Verdi's La Traviata one minute and Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here the next. They work well across everything I listen to. Normally, mine are connected to a ifi Hip-Dac which is fed from an iPhone or MacBook. No problem driving them direct from these devices but sound better through the DAC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Grados Bought these on my son’s recommendation, absolutely thrilled. A richer sound and can hear others without having to take them off. Wish I had found this family run business before now. Well made absolute attention to detail. If you are looking for quality headphones at a reasonable price then get these. I love them.
