Built on the same features as the SR60, but utilizes a 4 conductor connecting cable and larger ear cushions, the result of which gives a more open stage. The SR80 provides an improved bass resonance, which enhances the overall detail. John Grado says he strove for the best sounding phones for the money, and with the glowing reviews the SR80's have received, who can argue.
the i stand for in the new SR80i from Grado? Improved, that's what!
Built on the same features as theSR60i, but SR80i utilizes a 4
conductor connecting cable and the diaphragms are put through a special
'de-stressing' process in order to enhance inner detail, the result of
which gives a more open stage. The new SR80i has an upgraded driver
design, and they have enlarged and improved the mass distribution in
the plastic housing. The way the SR80i's new driver and plastic housing
move air and react to sound vibrations are now less affected by
transient distortions. The SR80 provides an improved bass resonance,
which enhances the overall detail. With the SR80i you will notice
improved control of the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum
with both better supporting Grado's world renowned midrange. The SR80i
will produce a sound that is pure Grado, warm harmonic color, rich full
bodied vocals, excellent dynamics and an ultra smooth top end. Listen
"...these are truly wonderful hearphones, they've got the bass energy... ripping into heavy tracks with a gusto that eludes lesser rivals. With vocals they intoxicate with a natural feel and beautifully proportioned soundstage: few headphones can transport you as convincingly... The Grado SR80's are special. Buy'em, and Love'em."
