The build is sturdy and the sound so far has been great. I know I still have to break them in, so to have a sound like I do which is straight out of the box is superb and only gives me high hopes.
You get a small variety of foam and silicon tips which might be a bit of a struggle to get used to compared to the average universal ones you get with pretty much every other standard pair of low budget earphones. There are some info leaflets and a carry case. But where these earphones shine and rightly so, is their sound.
The sound is great out of the box. Any Grado fan will not be dissapointed. The soundstage is wide and spacious and has superb clarity and detail straight out the box. The bass is tight and a little recessed, but I'm certain it will loosen up and hit a bit stornger in the break in. The only issue is that it has some sibililance bleed, which means the symbols and some of the vocals pierces a bit, but it's not fair to mark it down based on something that will most likely dissapear when broken in to. If it doesn't, I will update this and note an rate accordingly.
People seem to forget that earphones have a break in period and always rate them on first listen.
My final thought is that these Grado iGi's deserve praise and a definite investment if you're semi serious about your listening.
22 Weeks later and the sound in the right ear has begun cutting out when the jack has pressure applied to it in a certain way.Read more ›
This is my third pair of these. I broke both of the other two by catching the lead on things. This pair has come with a substantially thicker cable. I don't blame the construction of the headphones, it was my habit of wearing them to do everything from housework to DIY with them on; they were bound to get broken at some point. I have bought a pair of Sennheiser headphones to do the DIY in to save the iGrados.
Now the bad: they may look like portable but they are open back and leak sound heavily. Also very unconfortable for my ears. The drivers never seem to cover my ears completely and after one hour my ear lobes hurt like hell.
I will try to put iGrado drivers into some other cans casing to see what happens. Will keep posted
I have both expensive Astro and QPad gaming headset, neither of them produce as accurate sound as the iGrado.
BUT - the cable leading up to the jack fails. The cable is thin and somewhat delicate. Apparently the units these are "very similar, if not identical to those found in cheap PC headsets such as Genius". I feel ripped off.
