Product Description

Product Description

The open back Grado SR60i headphone has achieved 'Legend' status and is recognised around the world as a clear improvement on its predecessor, the multi-award winning SR60. The new SR60i has an upgraded driver design, and Grado have enlarged and improved the mass distribution in the plastic housing. This improves air movement within the housing, making it less affected by resonances and transient distortions. The new model offers music lovers a truly outstanding sonic presentation. It is dynamic, open, smooth yet very detailed and with a fast accurate bass. Listen and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes they are worth the hype 30 Jan 2008
Having recently purchased these headphones I was very sceptical about all the good reviews due to the unavailability to actually try them as no retail stores or good hifi shops seem to sell them. I decided to bite the bullet and puchased a pair, all I can say is WOW.

They have exceptionally good clarity good soundstage and very detailed sound.Some reviews found them to be uncomfortable, this was true at first but as with every thing new once they are worn them in I don't even notice them.

I use them from iTunes and find the EQ settings are responsive to get the sound just right.
When listening from a 5th Gen Ipod they sound great.
Plugging them in my amp hooked up to a nad cd player send them to a whole different level.
I find the Bass to be very good and controlled (no thuddy muddy sound)

The best way to describe the sound difference from standard Headphones is like going from VHS tape to Blue-Ray discs, The amount of detail you get at first is overpowering but after a reasonable burn in time (20 hrs in my case) not only do you become accustomed to the new sound but you end up Wanting to listen to your music collection over and over.

4.0 out of 5 stars great sound, rubbish construction 10 May 2011
To me the SR80's are light years ahead of the Bose I tried but if only the build quality was as good. There are two, linked design faults: to get to the earpieces, the cable is split with a Y-piece - fine except the individual earpieces are designed to rotate on their supports - but when doing so, twist the cable so it eventually breaks at the Y. I've had two pairs go the same way after about a year of use and you can forget about service in the UK - in my experience it's non-existent. I was told they'd "never seen that before" with a strong implication that I mishandle them. For the record, I treat them with great care but it will happen however they are handled. The moulded Y piece is a disaster.

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishingly good at the price. 19 Dec 2007
By Steve S
I'd heard that Grado made decent headphones but had fairly low expectations of this, the bottom of their range. I was amazed by the quality of the sound! I'm starting to save for the RS 1s in the expectation that it will completely change the way I hear recorded sound. An unqualified recommendation for a superb product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant, but not for portable use 18 April 2009
After a lot of reading I finally decided to buy the Grado SR60s. In terms of sound quality, they are simply fantastic for the price, it really breathes new life into your music collection (as long as it isn't crappy low bitrate mp3). A lot of people don't like the styling, but I'm a big fan of it, very retro :)

While an iPod/mp3 player is able to power these perfectly fine, don't bother buying them if you want to use them out and about. They leak sound like nothing else, to the point where its not really possible to use them in the same room as someone else without them getting annoyed. Additionally, they are a bit too cumbersome to just walk around with. Still, highly recommended because you simply won't get a pair of cans with this sound quality for the price anywhere else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Buy These 25 Feb 2008
I spent some time trying out headphones over the weekend. Bought some Grado SR 60's and what a bargain they are. Like others have said they produce a beautifully detailed sound with truly natural bass.They were in a different class to the others I tried.

They may not survive the rigours of a long daily commute year in year out, but other than that I can't see how anyone could be disappointed with these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 31 Oct 2008
I'm a studio engineer used to listening to sounds in far too much depth for my own good! I realised that all of my audio gear was designed to reveal the music I was listening too in all its stark ugly glory, in order to better be able to improve it. So I decided to treat myself to a pair of headphones designed to make music sound GOOD no matter what.

I hadn't actually seen any of the rave reviews before I went to the local high quality audio shop armed with a few cd's I knew well. I have to say that none of the other headphones in the same range came near, and I even preferred the sound to quite a few of the post 200 models. If you compare these headphones side by side with its rivals it blows them clear out of the water, awesome!

everything is tight and clear, they have restored my enjoyment for listening to music. They sound great on mp3 players and the like but hook them up to a great D/A converter and CD quality audio and I find that I can enjoy listening to pretty much anything!

I love the old style look too, much better than plastic space pads IMO. The build quality on mine are pretty good, no complaints here though I hear that at this price point some of the cosmetics can be a little shoddy. hey, its worth it for the sound!

As a side point though, they are not good for studio monitoring, they try and make a simple unaltered bass synth sound too good and its no good for your perception! they go plenty loud enough for produced audio but when mixing and tracking mine sound a little odd and struggle to keep up with yet-to-be compressed sounds etc for example they can buzz a bit with an untamed sub. I still find myself using them when working on parts late at night.

That said, this is not a concern for anyone other than producers and hey, if you want monitor headphones you wouldn't be looking at these. I'm thinking of buying a second pair in case they ever stop making them, they are that good!

I think the product is ok. It has very good sound but very bad leakage of sound. The design was often uncomfortable and the pads fell of constantly despite being well looked after. Read more
