Grado SR80i review

 

Best home on-ears up to £150, Awards 2013. Whatever you play, these Grados will make it sound superb

Beautifully revealing, detailed and musical performance

Open-backed design leaks so much, people might think it's a ringtone

Best home on-ears up to £150, Awards 2013. Not for public use, but for pure sound quality at this price, a superb buy

Grado Labs Prestige SR80i review

 

Grado has upgraded its SR80 headphones to the new "i" moniker and while they may look the same as the SR60i , and many models previous, there is a lot going on behind the scenes that's worth the extra $20 investment.

The Grado SR80i headphones offer incredibly balanced, hi-fi-quality sound. One of the best models available for under $100.

The design is quite polarizing with a very retro look. The open earcups mean they're not suited to use in noisy environments or places where sound leakage might disturb others. If you own the original SR80 headphones, it's not worth the upgrade.

The Grado SR80i headphones are a great budget pair that offer sparkling sound with tight bass and are best suited to home use.
