I have a pair of sr325e. Amazing sound but neutral bass frequencies. Cheap build, this is where they save; these are NOT for hardcore/outside use. They're open back anyway, so ambient is bad. If your priority for the money you spend is sound quality, Grado's a great option!

Bought em right after saw this video. They're still going strong 3 years later. And my god they sound orgasmic.

Great headphones especially for the price. I love the quality of music, especially from my amplifier 2x40 watt output, so clear, and crisp. I love the strong sturdy cable, unlike the cheap wires in so many headphone sets.

These are made in Brooklyn NYC and they sound amazing. Open back head phones have a much more clear, real, and 3d sound. After listening to these, closed back over ear headphones just sound monotonous. Open back the sound just pops out at you like a 3d movie or stereo sound. Grabbed a pair of these today. When it hit certain melodies and notes it's feels like there are faeries dancing in my ears. Not only do these have clear highs and mids they have good natural base. If you like very very load base just install a equalizer app on your phone. The out of box sound on these are comparable too $300 headphones. Everytime I think about picking these up to listen to music it feels like Christmas. These are still a top notch pick for 2018. Get these. You won't regret it. I went to Adorama in NYC which has about 40 different high end on ear and over ear headphones for you to try out right there. You can play their demo music of Ellis your phone in to see how they sound with your own music. I tried all the closed backed headphones they had from $60 to $900 and not one of them sound near as good as the $72 SR60e’s or the slightly better SR80’s by Grado. If all you care about is perfect sound quality, clarity, how the music was meant to be heard then get opened back. If you want headphones with noise canceling properties and tweeted to have more bass then get closed backed. Any audiophile (people into Hi-Fi (high fidelity music) will tell you opened back headphone is what you want.

Just try out the Phillips shp9500

Ha! Should have a tape player at the end of it! Good headphones, though. Maybe it is just me, but they don't seem to get a lot of love. I love mine. I bounce (yes, I just typed the word bounce) between these and my Sennheiser HD600s. No, they don't sound alike. And I like that. Now comes the blasphemy; If I could have only one of these, I would equally happy with either. I might to hide for awhile.

Would this be a good buy for mixing beats? I need a pair of good open back headphones for mixing for $100
0B ZEN (4 months ago)
Probably better choices around. Although they sound great, they are not very comfortable, at least for me. The cord is heavy and a bit annoying.
James Allen (5 months ago)
Ha Ha I love these things! Just got mine yesterday. Yeah, some can, and do, call them ugly. I choose to look at them as old school. My default headphones are the HD600s; but I love these Grado headphones. It is nice to have a variety of sound signatures; mix things up. Light, easily driven little fuckers! Get a pair! If, like in a very bad movie, I had to choose between the Grados and my Sennheisers I would choose the Sennheisers; but I would recommend the Grados first to anyone who asks me for a headphone recommendation. $99. Bam.

wtf why did i just get an ad with this exact video before
Tigerex966 (5 months ago)
Please test the Phillips sph 9500An even better open back headphone or about $75Easily one of the best under $400 headphones. For gaming and music

Started with SR60's years ago, picked up some SR225's before finally scoring some old SR325i's off ebay for $100. Use em with with a JDS labs C5D DAC/Headphone amp. Huge Grado fan.

Hi Marques... I have the SR125E, and they are just perfect! The sound is pure, and goes well beyond my AT-M40X flat headset that I sold... Will not go back to a closed headset!

GRADOLABS is a company that doesn't have : Customer service email Support email technical support email info email sales email Don't believe me ? Checkout their website and see for yourself. You're basically on your own after purchase. No support nothing ! Also, checkout Beyer Dynamic : AKG : Audio Technica; SONY; Sennheiser: SHURE and see the difference.

godwillhunting2 you too man have a good night night and good luck on your journey also
godwillhunting2 (1 year ago)
no problem at all.. good luck on your headphone journey... enjoy it .. its fun :)
Holy (1 year ago)
godwillhunting2 my adventures with headphones started with beats. I wasn't satisfied with Monster headphones (basically beats) bit I wasn't satisfied with the sound (thank god) because little did I know I was just scratching of the surface. got some offbrand headphones that sounded better and it started from there but thanks and sorry for wasting your time and asking so many questions
godwillhunting2 (1 year ago)
i understand..lol.. i'm the same way .. the cans you have now are pretty good.. i've only been listening to these for a few hours and I really like the open back sound better.. wider sound stage for sure compared to my sony's .. the grado's are definitely very warm sounding.. I'm pretty impressed with them.

Reverend Eslam (1 year ago)
Grado is an UNDERRATED brand? Are you kidding? It's grossly overrated in my opinion. I have auditioned their top-of-the-range products and they are not even close to being worth their inordinate price. I own several top-notch headphones, including arguably the FINEST pair ever made - Audeze.
ARCHANGEL (1 year ago)
Why is the same one cheaper? Degraded sound quality or?
John Jones (1 year ago)
The REAL budget king is the Sennheiser HD 201... £100 is not a budget headphones those are entry level audiophile headphones the distinction between the two is huge.
Stanisław Szczypuła (1 year ago)
HD201 is junk compare to Superlux HD330 + velor pads. I have both of them (as well as Superlux HD681 Evo) and HD330 are in completely different, higher league. Not to mention that my mother was able to damage 3,5 mm plug on HD201(while using headphone only at night so for 3-4 hours a day) and I had to replace it.
bluex217 (1 year ago)
I actually got to try these today in a local audio store. They're SUPER clear and crisp, an absolute STEAL for $100 in terms of soundstage and crispness. Now, the bass was a bit lacking but couple these headphones with a bassier pair in your collection and you will be happy with their crispness without missing bass, as you can just throw on your bassy set of cans

Rob Helmink (1 year ago)
Nice quick & clean review @marquesbrowniee . After owning the SR60 for over 3 years now, I must say I am a very satisfied customer! I wear these headphones day & night almost every day; the sound is subliem and fits my music style. What you forgot to mention @Margues, VERY IMPORTANT these headphones are for audiophiles and each type (SR60 / SR80 / RS1e) fits a certain style of music, suited for a specific group of music lovers. The SR60 for example can't handle big bass, I don't mind; since it is at his best in the mid & high tones. So you physically NEED to go to the reseller in order to listen and compare the various types of Grado headphones while playing your own music.. PS If your Grado headphone malfunctiones, has wires that are broken etc., they are repaired at negligible costs. Enjoy this brand people! It's really worth it !

Can you pinpoint where the instruments are with these?
Durrant Miller (1 year ago)
Yes, but for less $100 I'd say it would better to go with the Philips SHP9500 (I believe they occasionally go for $50)

everyone needs to stfu about beats being shit! i have the audio tech ath m50x, sennheiser hd800, the grado sr80i! and when I go put of the house I always take the beats studio 2! they look and feel great, sound really good, and don't need an amp to power like the hd800 or the grados! all in all if u get studios on sale for under 200$ there worth it! ye they don't sound as good as the ath m50x, but there close and are well rounded!
Morphix (2 years ago)
Sub $100? They're 160€ ($180) in France... WHAT?!
Ming23Ding (2 years ago)
I think you should give all the Grado headphones more credit. Starting with the iGrado all the way to the GS, PS series. WHat do you use to play your music? Cellphone? Musicplayer like Fiio, Astell&Kern, iBasso...?

Have owned my pair of SR80's for four years. The soundstage open back headphones produce is remarkable for listening to music and movies, gaming etc. Not so much suited for monitoring, but a great introduction into audiophile headphones.
Tigerex966 (2 years ago)
Philips SHP 9500 $69.99 full size open back headphones worth a look even though the grados are good.
Durrant Miller (1 year ago)
The SHP 9500 are better than these unless you are a treble head then these might suit you better
ducksonetime (2 years ago)
Good headphones, good review, mate. I reckon the SHP9500's pip these for "Fisher Price - My First Open-backs" personally. The SR80's are really detailed but have anemic bass.
Fitri Suhaimi (2 years ago)
Thanks for this great video and the reason I'm buying one. I never used a headphone before and using the sr80e for my first one is wonderful. The headphone is so great and the sound is spectacular for me. The sound is balance and perfect for any genre of music. Thanks again for the recommendation. Hope you stay making more cool tech video in the future. 👍🏻

hey Marcus there's a new brand of headphones out my Nick Cannon called Ncredible1. There are a RadioShack exclusive and I own I pair. I like them alot and maybe they'd be something you'd want to take a look into too?

If im looking for some headphones to use to and from going out and to uni. would this suffice? or would the open back leak too much noise while on the train or in class
