The Grado SR80i headphones might not win any styling awards, but they score points in reviews where it counts -- sound quality, including detail and natural sound across all frequencies.
Excellent overall. The Grado SR80i's overall sound is described as lively and open, though some reviewers say the high ranges don't quite match up to the quality of the midranges. The bass response of the SR80i is excellent, reviewers write. Also be aware that these are open-style headphones, meaning sound leaks in and out.ProsExcellent music quality, Very good value, Light, comfortableConsBulky, Old-fashioned styling, Ear pads may be uncomfortable after extended use
