Grado Prestige SR80e

By: Tara Tuckwiller on October 12, 2016

Bottom Line Although we found decent headphones for as little as $35, stepping up to the Grado Prestige SR80e will reward you with much better sound. Even picky audiophiles find the Grado smooth and sweet, with well-balanced bass and treble and an open-back design that makes music sound spacious and natural. The headphones are lightweight and comfortable.
Pros
  • Open-back design makes for spacious, natural sound
  • Lightweight and portable
  • Low price
Cons
  • Open-back design lets noise leak in (and out)
  • No carrying case or other extras
  • Some testers find foam ear pads scratchy
