”These Grados remain an exceptional pair of headphones.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2020 award-winner.

Audiophile sound quality

Following on from a line of award-winning SR80s, the latest 'e' version is still every bit the music connoisseurs' choice. Still handmade in Brooklyn USA, the SR80e headphones look, feel and sound quite different from the opposition. With the 'e' model, both driver and housing have been redesigned to lower distortion. Polymer damping helps ensure distortion is quelled and detail is brought to the fore.

Exceptional transparency
Using a new 4-conductor cable, Grado has also sought to improve headphones' resolution, giving them the kind of transparency you'd expect from a pair of headphones costing twice as much. In short, if it's life-like realism with full-bodied vocals and impressive dynamics you're after, little, if anything at this price can better the SR80e.

Robust and comfortable
Using densely padded earpieces and a broad headband, the SR80es are more comfortable than they might at first appear. With swivel earpieces, they also fit snugly against your ears, as well as folding flat for ease of storage. Their construction is tough enough to take a daily commute while still offering long-term comfort.

Unique style
The unique retro style is quite unlike rivals' headphones. In the tradition of many of the best products, however, form follows function, so there's nothing superfluous in the Grado's design.

For headphones that put sound quality above all else, the Grado SR80es continue to lead the pack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good sound quality, bit lacking in bass Unusual listening experience in that you can hear everything like you didn't have headphones on at all (all external sound comes in). The sound quality is great, if a bit less bass than I'm used to. Makes films and TV series sound great, voices very clear. The headband is really good, you just bend it to the shape you want, very light and easy to wear even with a big head like mine. All parts seem very good quality and also looks very modular and easy to fix if they wore out. I bought them after seeing a review on the Dankpods Youtube channel, really helpful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound, and value. I have had these headphones a couple of weeks, and i have found them to pretty good value for the money, they are comfortable to wear, and the sound is clear, detailed, and open or spacious. there is reasonable bass, but it will not be as pronounced as some headphones, like my old senheiser hd 465, which are darker and more bassy in comparison to the Grado SR80e

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great headphones and with a great price They sound very clear and open. Very instrumental songs are a blessing to hear with these headphones. They sound decently without a dedicated DAC but I would recommend to get one to unlock its full potential, no amp is needed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound, great quality I bought this a few weeks ago and they are by far the best headphoned I've ever owned, sparkly and detailed sound, punchy enough but maybe not the ones if you're a massive bass-head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product As usual. The exceptional customer service RS provide really adds to the customer experience. Grado SR80 are great value for money and open back headphones make all the difference. For sub £100. Look no further.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sound good to me I bought these as my Wife has retired and doesn't share my taste in listening material ! The sound quality is good, but bear in mind that at my age I can't hear anything above about 8 kHz. Construction quality is good. The box they came in was flimsy and got squashed in the post - but this is down to Richer Sounds lack of packing abilities rather than Grado. Only downside is that the foam pads make my ears rather warm after 20 minutes.
