The good: Retro-styled, over-the-ear model; sounds swell with portables; big bass; lively sonics.
The bad: Not the slickest-looking or most comfortable 'phones you can buy.
The bottom line: Grado's cheapest headphones belt out big sound with pint-size portable audio devices.
One of the best for under $100
Pros: comfortable and sound qulity is hard to beat in this price range. If you want a sub $100 pair of open(hear things around you) head phones these are your best bet. Ideal for work environments, etc as they do not require a headphone amplifier. Any source
Cons: Bass might be to strong for some. Style isn't so hot to some. I personally like the retro look.
Great Sound, but Fatiguing Fit
Pros: These are hands down the best sounding headphones at this price for portable use. I use these at work for hours on end and they really do sound great with my portable MD and CD players.
Cons: The cords come off each ear piece rather than one side only, and tend to get twisted quite easily, which can be annoying. Also, the main cord is rather stiff and doesn't bend well, so it can often get in the way or even knock things off your desk. Lastl
Cheap and excellent audio upgrade
Pros: I have SR-60's, and later bought SR-225's. Plug SR-60's into your Ipod, portable CD player or minidisc, and hear what the music is supposed to sound like. Good enough to hear the differences between ripping data rates and settings.
Cons: So you want to look like an A/V Club geek? (Apologies to all A/V Club members out there.)
Audiofile quality for cheap
Pros: Very detailed (especially if the SR80 ear pads are used), a little "hot" on the high frequencies. Sounds great on most all music. Kick ass cans for the money.
Cons: Not very comfortable. Some don't like the looks, but they do get "retro" attention.
Grado, need I say more?
Pros: SOUND SOUND SOUND...I'm never going back to any other brand of headphones...except for Grado. It's unfair to compare it to the other phones in its price range. Either Grado is so much better than other companies in the headphone industry, or the other c
Cons: Most people agree that the styling is horrible, I say they don't know what's going on. The retro look does it for me. Who wants a set of headphones that looks like everyone else's. Kudo's to the design. People will not mistake it for some cheap pair o
"THE" Headphones to purchase for home listening
Pros: These sound better than my $700 Kef speakers. The imagining is amazing. You will find yourself bypassing the receiver at home, and just plugging into your iPod. An Unbelievable value - (can you give it 11 for value), and the best sounding headphones I hav
Cons: The foam ears are going to be overwhelming in a climate like New Orleans. They block out no sound. You’re not stylin’ wearing Grados. Cord is ideal for home use… its too thick and long (10ft) for walking around the city listening.
Best sound for the money, hands down, but not too comforable.
Pros: The sounds cannot be beat for anywhere near the price. Superb clarity, remarkable bass, and great efficiency get the sound loud even on small devices.
Cons: Not the most comforable or durable, and the open air design makes for tough public or office listening.
Pros: These headphones blow away everything else I have listened to under $150 from competitors when it comes to acoustic accuracy and sonic imaging/staging. They feel wide open, are extremely responsive with awesome, clean sounding range considering their rat
Cons: They look like ham radio headphones of the 50's, but like noted before, it's not the style we're going for here. They bleed sound, which probably annoys most people around you. They're expensive for headphones if you want something to sound great while
Audiophile quality for cheap
Pros: Excellent sound for the price. I would personally recommend the model above it, SR80. I have purchased and listen to high end Senheiser and Sony's. This is one of the open-air style design out there. NOT FOR DJ b/c its design.
Cons: Comfort is not it best thing but the sound alone would make u want more.
The best headphones under $80
Pros: The best sound under $80. I wear mine for gaming and it helps alot in games like Call Of Duty. You can hear footsteps alot better.
Cons: Out dated style but who is buying these for style it is the sound that counts.
