Grado SR80e Headphones

What we think in the Inner Sanctum:

A taste of the high-end for under $100?  Oh, yeah.

The bargain-priced SR80e still has Grado's signature "you are there" liveliness and can kick out the jams. Your gateway drug into high end audio?  Very likely.

Grado calls the SR80e “the action thriller,” and for good reason. Whether you're into gaming or jamming, their perfectly proportioned soundstage delivers the midrange you love, the bass you need and the details you crave.


From the manufacturer:

The 4-conductor cable and gold-plated mini-plug bring the sparkle back to your audio or gaming system, tablet or phone. Play keyboard or guitar in your own head-space with the comfortable S-Cushions and durable embossed vinyl strap. The only distortion you'll hear will be from your stomp box.

Grado has taken one of the world's most legendary headphones and made it even better. The SR80e has a new driver design, a new polymer to damp resonant distortion in the plastic housing, and a new cable from plug to driver connection. The way the SR80e's new driver and plastic housing move air and react to sound vibrations virtually eliminate transient distortions.

This allows the signal flow over the new cable to reproduce sound that has improved tight control of the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum, while supporting Grado's world renowned midrange. The SR80e will produce a sound that is pure Grado, with warm harmonic colors, rich full-bodied vocals, excellent dynamics, and an ultra-smooth top end.
