”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 Suberb and sublime sound! Out of the box it is a very controlled headphone.. after a couple of hours you can feel the sound opening and it becomes sublime! Either being drives by my mobile or on my dac/amp combo.. it is so easy to drive that you can just use with your mobile and you won’t miss almost anything. It is on par with my other sennheiser headphones a tad more relaxed but you won’t feel your are missing any definition, bass is there but not on your face. The mids are on point and the highs are just there without being aggressive. Really good for enjoying the music, not over analysing it but I can guarantee you, you will hear things with this headphone that you haven’t heard with the normal consumer sets! Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, comfortable fit I bought these to use with an audio player and I am glad I did, the sound is light and flowing and the fit is so comfortable I forget I am wearing them. While they are probably not suitable for use outside owing to the sound bleed both in and out, as a pair of indoor, private listening headphones they are incredible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, a look only a mother could love!!! I wanted some headphones to use with my home stereo. I prefer wired as I think the sound is better. They aren't the most beautiful headphones, but they have a certain retro charm. However, the sound is very good. Really full, warm sound with plenty of detail. They are open back, so your family get to enjoy the music if it's turned up too loud, but it hasn't really been an issue. Being open backed means they have a more natural sound - I'm really not keen on noise cancelling headphones, personally. I have also used them out and about and they dealt with the outdoors really well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value cans Been using these for a week or so and very pleased. The sound is open and detailed, with a wide range, and the whole thing is reasonably comfortable sitting on the bonce. I s'pose the two main "housings" are a bit plasticky looking—but who looks at them? The cable is chunky and a decent length. All in, glad I chose these fine cans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable value Though I already owned the SR80e, at £78 in the Online Clearance these were a no-brainer. The improvements over the e series are significant - a more comfortable headband, a braided cable, and improved drivers giving appreciably better (but still leaky) sound. They aren't the class leaders for nothing! Also recommended - the revised GW100 have much the same sonic signature but reportedly have 60% less sound leakage, and of course are both Bluetooth 5.0 wireless and wired (with - thank the Gods - a detachable cable!). Their construction is less impressive (they're only 'designed' in Brooklyn rather than the 'hand built' of the Prestige Series) but they're a seriously good all-rounder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful sound Beautiful sound from a pair of sub £100 headphones that punches well above their price tag. Their open back design means they leak a lot of sound so probably best used at home rather than the morning train commute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look Cool, Sound Great A quick search of various reviews lead me to the Grado headphones. I trust Richer Sounds so bought from them over any other seller. arrived super quick no charge delivery, quicker than it suggested it might be. Headphones are comfortable, not that noisy (open back) in environment. Lovely midrange. Main purpose is watching TV / Films when others in house on work zooms. Ideal. I would think that have to spend a chunk moe for much better sound. If I was using for music might have gone a bit more if using high quality source / amp etc.
