"I got the headphones and they sound great"
What does the "i" stand for in the new SR60e and SR80e headphones from Grado? Improved, thatís what! The SR60e has a newly designed driver and housing to reduce resonance and distortion.
Their upgraded driver designs, and plastic housings with improved mass distributions result in reduced transient distortion, and less bass resonance, which enhances the overall detail.
The SR80e is built on the same features as theSR60e, but utilizes a 4 conductor connecting cable and a special de-stressed diaphragm to enhance inner detail. The result produces better control of the frequency spectrum and a more open stage.
When we evaluated them, we compared them to our B&W Matrix 801, Series 3 studio monitors, and found the sound to be quite competitive. A lot of sound for minimal expense.

Grado uses mahogany wood, with a new proprietary curing process to enhance its tonal properties. The curing process ensures consistency of the signature Grado sound. Rhodium, the most expensive precious metal on earth, is employed in "e" Series headphones to prevent corrosion on connectors, and unwanted graininess in your music. The new driver cone and voice coil geometry follows frequencies with unequaled precision throughout the full range. Unchanged is the traditional Grado appearance that fans cherish. The open-back form of Grado headphones produces a cleaner, more authentic sonic experience.
