Grado GR8

 

These in-ears have a precise, detailed sound, but we'd like a more natural sounding richness there too

Precision; detailed; understated looks

No carry pouch; lack a certain richness and natural delivery

Grado In-Ear GR8 review

 

The Grado GR8 earphones are the answer to the audiophile community's prayers for the company to add a pair of earbuds to its line of popular over-ear headphones . Grado Labs maintains its tradition of full-bodied sound and solid build quality with the...

The Grado In-Ear GR8 headphones employ a versatile sound signature that complements multiple musical genres, and a lightweight architecture adds comfort.

In typical Grado fashion, the GR8s don't come with any accessories, and the small ear tips may present fit issues for some users.

The Grado GR8 headphones boast level resonance and audiophile-quality acoustics, but they're currently overpriced for the average listener.

Grado GR8 Review

 

Moving armature in-ear monitors

Exceptional integration and coherence ; Impressive sensitivity and noise isolation ; Compact and well built

Not cheap ; Demanding of partnering equipment ; Somewhat stingy choice of supplied ancillaries

Grado GR8

 

A lack of extra features or carrying case can't hold the Grado GR8 headphones back from shining—audiophiles will not be disappointed.

Excellent audio performance. Secure, lightweight fit. No frills design with a cable that doesn’t tangle easily.

Distorts slightly at maximum volume on deep bass tracks. No iPhone controls or extra features. No carrying case or pouch.

I was looking forward to reviewing these headphones, which were provided by Grado to headphonereviews.org. Grado's a big name in the industry, and i'd never heard anything by Grado before, so I was quite excited about the review.
