Grado SR80e Prestige Series Open Backed Headphone
Like all the ‘Prestige Series’ models, the multi-award winning Grado SR80i is an open-back headphones. It is light, comfortable and built on the same features as the SR60i headphones. But the SR80i utilises a 4 conductor connecting cable. And the driver diaphragms are put through a special ‘de-stressing’ process. This is to enhance inner detail. The result is a headset which delivers a wider, more open and dynamic soundstage. Which is also smoother in the treble and deeper in the bass; a sound that is pure Grado.
