”An exceptional pair of headphones.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2019 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 5 out of 5 by from great sound, no plastic packaging. I needed a light pair of open backed headphones. There's some supply problems, but Richer Sounds hasd some in stock. the headphones are really good. There's a lot of plastic around and to some extent I wish I'd bought some finished in better materials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top engineering as sensible price. Took advice from your sales team and was really impressed. They are light comfortable easily adjusted and more importantly deliver a superb sound. All this at a sensible price I highly recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Open, clean sound and you can hear noises around I have paired the Grado with the Dragonfly Black DAC. The sound is so clear and detailed that the music brought tears to my eyes. You can also hear the sound around you so that if the doorbell rings or someone enters the room you will hear them. For some people this will be a disadvantage, not least because people nearby will hear your music, but for me its great because I don't miss callers and I can respond to my wife's questions. The headphones are very light and comfortable. I am not bothered that the cushions are plastic and a little rough- they don't get hot in the same way as closed ear headphones. The sound is 'bright' with comparatively little bass but that suits my hearing well having lost the top frequencies in my left ear at a lifetime of rock concerts. Classical music is very accurate but these are best for recent recordings where the soundstage is more natural and refined. You can hear the words in opera (not an advantage usually) They must be good as they are my goto everyday headphones!
