Worthy Sound

The story of the SR80x holds a special place in not only our ears, but the ears of hundreds of thousands of listeners. The first pair was built in 1991 and we wouldn’t be here today without it. With its soundstage, world renowned mid-range, and speed, the SR80x is worthy of being the longest running Grado headphone.

Terrible customer service

I bought the SR80x after several YouTuber commented of the quality, but when I received mine the headphone jack came in bent, affecting the sound quality, i contacted them for a solution and they never responded me back twice, I am very disappointed after hearing such praise

Not blown away, just happy.

I was looking for 'phones I would be comfortable out and about with, in the car, the park, maybe the bathtub! I found just that: cheap feeling in my hands, yes, but not a ripoff; I don't worry abou them breaking. Most importantly they are very enjoyable to listen to, fun and more engaging sound than anything else I've tried at this price range (not that I've tried everything). The the, somewhat conpact, over-ear style and open design is just right for the active parts of my life; I don't want to block out the world, just introduce a bit of music to some parts of life.

If I come upon more money later in life, I'm looking forward to trying some more Grados :)

They only work when on the head.

The sound quality often has me, for a moment thinking I am back in my last home, which was completely wired for sound, excellent sound, causing me to feel, for a moment, that I am Bach (not a typo, bad humor), there. Then reality hits and I appreciate the sound that much more.
The only downfall is having them fit snugly on my head. I am unable to get snug ear coverage which minimizes the totality of the sound. The little plastic nubs which fit on the ends of the posts which secure the earpieces to the headband itself. They easily pulled loose. I was told to use a bit of glue on each post and secure the nibs. Didn't work. I now have to be overly careful when using them.
