Yes. They are expensive. But if you are reading this review you are seriously considering making this purchase. Allow me to push you over the line.

First off, I became somewhat of an audiophile about 2 years ago when I realized that my Bose tri-port headphones were not producing any Mid-Levels, a clear soundstage or any distinguishable depth to the music that was being played through them. I quickly upgraded to the Grado SR-60's and became completely hooked on the Grado soundstage. It spiraled into an addiction from there. Unfortunately, to get sound quality sound like many of the top-notch headphones you have to have open-air, supra-aural headphones. This is just the physics of sound. Welcome the Grado GR-8.

If you are reading this review you are most likely interested in In-Ear-Monitors that sound as good as open air cans. I recently moved to New York City and quickly realized that in ears are a necessity to avoid the noise in this concrete jungle. No in ear will sound as good as a supra aural, open air headphone. It is just physically impossible to create a resonance chamber with in ears. For the GR-8 Grado has implemented some new technology that involves rotating. I cannot begin to understand how it works but I will tell you this: it works. I listen to everything, and I mean EVERYTHING. Every type of music is enhanced by these monitors. They create a brilliant soundstage inside your head. If you ever thought to yourself, "What would it be like to be in the room with The Beatles when they recorded Sgt. Pepper's?" you will actually know exactly what it sounded like after listening to these. They are worth every penny that you pay for them.

The sound of the Grado earphones is very good. It is balanced. It is not weak either in the upper end or in the bass. The sound production seems very accurate, but also really fun. These earphones have that Grado sound which is very lively. I have used them both for classical music and jazz. They are surprisingly good in classical music. They are very clean sounding. I listened to them on an Ipod with a Leckerton headphone amplifier which is under $200.00. It comes with three different sizes of ear gels, but none was quite big enough for me to achieve a good seal which is necessary for proper bass response. I used a T 400 Comfort Foam Tip which did the trick for me. I noticed that Westone, Shure and Etymotic all include foam earpieces to ensure that their earphones achieve a good seal. If a listener (particularly a newbie to high end earphones) first tries earphones and does not get a good fit, they feel cheated or at least very disappointed. Hopefully, Grado will see fit to include some alternative foam tips in their packaging for future models.

The best thing about these earphones is that they have a very good sound stage. I listen primarily to jazz and classical music. Both are essentially "acoustic" in nature. You can actually detect "sound stage" and placement of instruments with these earphones which I believe is not very common in earphones.

The individual earphones ae very compact which is very convenient. There are three negatives to these earphones. The packaging is very sparce. It comes with the standard three ear gels which are always too small for me to get a good seal. Secondly, the earphones do not come with a little carrying case. This is a mistake. They could have a small pouch like comes with the Etymotics if they wanted to save money.

I have enjoyed Grado headphones for some time now, but never even thought of them for earbuds. Previously I had used Shure 420's which had a nice balanced sound but turned out to be unreliable and eventually had to be replaced. I wanted to go with a different brand and search around Amazon and found these. As I said, I liked the sound of my Grado headphones, so I decided to give these a shot.

On Christmas morning, I tried them on and was totally underwhelmed. The sound was very clean, but there was no bass at all. There wasn't much in the box that was helpful, but saw a review for Grado GR10's that talked about earbud fit and seal and how important it was to bass. So I took the largest pair of Silicon tips and tried again. What a difference. The sound was ultra clean and well balanced. My only complaint was the bass still wasn't as good as my old Shures, but playing with the equalization controls on my iPhone I was able to get an acceptable sound.

So why only 4 stars? I have never had a pair of earphones that is so persnickety about getting the exact fit in my ear canal. Going to try some aftermarket replacements to see if I can do better. I feel if ear fit is that important it should be explained better in the instructions.

Still I am a happy owner. I hear things with his set of earphones in familiar albums I have never heard before. If you want a pair of high quality earbuds, then these are highly recommended.

When I first received these earphones, I was very disappointed because the sound was very dull: poor bass and treble. I even felt that the earphones that come with an Ipod sounded better. However, after about 100 hours of use, the sound improved dramatically. Treble is now great and bass is very good, although I think not to the level of Bang and Olufsen's A-8 earphones that I also own, which are probably the best ones I know, although slightly less comfortable than Grado's, I think that if you are looking for truly great sound and can settle for a earphones that are worn over your ears instead of inside your ears, I recommend the Bang and Olufsen's A8, with the advantage of a lower price.
