Nice updates

Two weeks in and I'm very pleased. The SR60x are an upgrade over my 15-year-old SR60 in a few key areas. The drivers have higher impedance so they are quieter at lower volume levels. The headband adds padding so it can fit smaller heads. And the cord is shorter, so I no longer have a big coil on my desk. I'm cautiously optimistic about the new braided cord. The main reason I'm replacing my old SR60 is because of a damanged cord, and the new one appears more durable 🤞. That said, it is also stiffer and the texture is a little rough. So far it hasn't caught on my facial hair or caused any other issues, but there's still room for improvement. Besides the changes I've mentioned, the SR60x are equal to my beloved SR60. They sound great, they're light, and they look like they came out of a WWII submarine. Long live Grado.

with love, from my ears

I previously had a pair of bose over-ear headphones that finally went kaputt on me and was looking for something different. I hadn’t used on-ear headphones in ages but i heard Grados had excellent ear cushions and sound so i decided to try them. They’re probably the best headphones i’ve used; the sound is great, the ear cushions don’t hurt my ears and for the price, it’s worth it. no regrets!

Love them

My first good pair of headphones and they’ve got me hooked into the hobby and especially into Grados. Love the sound and the feel. Will probably be buying sr125x or maybe the hemps at some point in the future.

Finally I can hear my mixes

Hands down the best headphones I’ve ever owned. I was told they were good by my mastering engineer so I only a pair. Words cannot describe how much clarity, low end, high end and mids . Someday I’ll buy one of the higher end models—who knows how good those sound. Plus, they are made in Staten Island, USA, not some slave pit in southeast Asía, or by mistreated immigrants in Ireland. But I digress…amazing sound!

Grado has given a significant upgrade to the Prestige Series of open-back headphones, marking a new era in audio excellence. The Prestige X Series builds upon the original models designed by John Grado three decades ago, featuring redesigned drivers, an enhanced cable design, and a more comfortable headband.
As you delve into the entry-level Grado Prestige SR60x headphones, you’ll experience the core performance and design DNA that made the original Grado Prestige range exceptional. Handcrafted in Brooklyn, these headphones feature classic enclosures and boast a new magnetic circuit, voice coil, and diaphragm, reducing distortion and enhancing harmonic integrity. The revamped X Series delivers exceptional audio performance with easier drivability, making it compatible with various portable devices.
Comfort is key, and the SR60x doesn’t disappoint. The open-back design ensures a game-changing experience for those who find traditional headphones uncomfortable. The headband, designed for extended listening sessions, looks like leather but is crafted from a vegan-friendly synthetic protein material. The enhanced cable design adds durability with a deluxe braided finish and a four-strand design made from super-annealed copper wire.
What about the sound? The SR60x offers an unparalleled audio experience, especially considering its price point. With a superb midrange, clear treble, and powerful bass, these headphones excel in shaping music with warm lower notes and a magnificent soundstage. Grado’s upgrade isn’t just cosmetic—it’s an auditory transformation. If you’re an audiophile on a budget, these headphones are a must-have for open-back listening.
Grado’s upgrade to the Prestige SR60x is nothing short of magnificent. These headphones stand out as the best-value pair of open-back headphones under $300, delivering exceptional sound, improved cable design, and enhanced comfort. Whether for yourself or as a gift, the Grado Prestige SR60x offers a non-wireless audio experience that’s simply unparalleled in its class.
