Grado SR80e On Ear Open Back Headphones

Grado SR80e

On Ear Open Back Headphones

In stock
£109
”Open-back on-ear headphones are a rarity, but Grado has knocked this one out of the park." What Hi-Fi Award Winner 2017

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 Amazing sound for the price Having tried a few other pairs of headphones at a more expensive price, I settled for these and I'm not disappointed. The sound is crystal clear. Good volume and very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful sound. I got this great pair of headphones on the 3rd of March from your London Bridge Store. The guys in store were really helpful and let me try the headphones before I purchased them. I would recommend the store to everyone great service and I will be using them again. Keep up the good work

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase Was looking to treat myself with some Christmas money, had a short list after reading reviews. These by far out performed the others very open and detailed. Nice low bass when needed and clean treble even when I listen to them on my phone they put a smile on my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic headphones The Richer Sounds deal on these was better than anywhere else so pleased to buy them here. Next day delivery was perfect. The Grados are a delight. Still burning them in, but they are a lovely headphone to listen to in the house. Now in the hunt for a DAC and amp to make them really stand out.
