Product Description

Product Description

  • The SR60s produce brilliant sound for a low cost. The SR60s have a flexible, soft vinyl headband. The headband and earpeices are connected by metal height adjusters, which adjust the height of your head with the center of your ear. These nifty adjusters also allow the earpiece to rotate a full 360 degrees, permitting them to lie flat on a surface--perfect when packing in a suitcase. The SR60s come with Grado's new earpads. The new pads are a soft, porous, open cell foam that covers the driver-- much more comfy. The SR60s offer good sound quality, plus are easily driven by the output of a portable player or inexpensive home equipment-- a nice combination. They come terminated to a mini with a 1/4 inch adapter and have a straight cord that attaches to both earpeices.

    I can listen to my music as loud as I want, block out the whatever music playing in the room, and still hear people talking.

    I've been a musician all of my life and played piano and other instruments professionally for an 11 year period. I listen to many genres of music and have a discerning ear. However, I am not an expert audio technology and because of this my review is based entirely on my listening experience.

    Physically, these headphones have a heavy guard that is apparently well-shielded judging by the sound. The signal to noise ration will low compared to SENNHEISER HD212 Pro, which is a closed ear type headphone that I purchased after listening to many models being made at the time. While the SENNHEISER HD212 were not the best at the time, they were a good value for the price point. The SR60s are a spectacular model at their price point, here is why.....

    The first thing I listened were recording of Chopin Waltzes by Ashkenazy. The clarity of the sound and the subtle nuances, harmonics and other details stood out. Similarly, I listened to a 1989 digital recording of Bill Evans Consecration. Bill Evans is known for his tone and these recording were made with Marc Johnson a phenomenal bass player who uses the whole range of the bass. In this recording, the results were that the piano tones were truer, the bass was light years better on the SR60 and even the brushes being used on the high hat cymbals were crystal clear. Overall, the sound was warm, balanced and low, mid and high frequencies all rendered very well.

    The last test that I did was to listen to the human voice with an orchestra, this is usually a very good test of what any sound system can do and these headphones didn't disappoint. I picked Viaggio Italiano / Andrea Bocelli as the test album, so there were lots of sections with more or less orchestra, soft and loud sounds, etc.

    I don’t want to brag about how good the can is, coz' the whole world has hailed its performance over and over again. The very fact that this can is repeatedly compared to ones costing over $300 itself speaks of its astounding performance (... and unbelievable for its price). So I will give you the cons of the product that I have experienced.

    CONS:

    1. The headphone can be uncomfortable for extended wear. Many people have mentioned if you bend the headband backward or if you stretch the headband etc.... it gets more comfortable, but I haven't quite succeeded in achieving absolute comfort that Sennheiser HD497 provided.

    2. Too much sound leakage. Since it is an open design, it leaks so much sound to the outside world, so I am forced to listen at low volumes at work. But then physics places a limitation that sealed headphones cannot achieve the quality of open headphone (resonance issue ... you can easily find info. as to why on the net...)

    Conclusion:

    1. When you listen to the can, its pure sound quality, imersive music melts all the cons away and makes you promise yourself that you will never give away this can.

    2. If Bass is not much important to you, the Sennheiser HD497 provide a more crisp clear high. I have owned both the models, so I can vow on that. But overall, I would any day take the SR60 over the HD497.

    Currently I have graduated to SR80 driven by a Headroom Total Bithead. But if you do not plan on getting an AMP, then I suggest you stick to SR60.

    I recently bought these cans for my daughter to use with her iPod mini...I had read good things about these headphones even with the criticism(?) of antiquated styling, uncomfortable headband and open headphone style...Wow! I am so impressed with these headphones that I offered to swap my Bose Quiet Comfort 2 for these. She said NO! The response is so smooth with a dynamic range that allows you to hear every nuance recorded onto the track. Bass is true...not artificially enhanced or boosted...highs are razor crisp and midrange is full and "round." Don't look any further for your headphones...these are worth 4X the price...I know!

    The Grado SR-60s are fantastic! I listen mainly to classical music, and I have found that these headphones offer incredibly accurate sound with clear highs and sufficient, but not overpowering, lows.** The detail in sound is phenomenal. The listener will enjoy very subtle differences in tone color and dynamic level, and the sound always comes across naturally.

    The SR-60s (and SR-80s) are perfect for portable listening devices, such as iPods, because the headphones present the best sound possible for players that lack an amplifier or a powerful driver. More expensive headphones with more power, detail, and precision are just wasted (and in some cases, don't even sounds as good) on portable devices.

    On the downside, I find that my SR-60s cease being comfortable after about an hour or so because they apply pressure to my ears. But I think this is a very small price to pay given the quality of sound and the price. (And sadly I rarely have much more than an hour at a time to listen anyway.) Plus, these cans are incredibly durable. I've used mine consistently for six years now, and they've held up perfectly.

    Just a word of caution: Grado headphones are "open air." While this contributes to their fantastic sound, be aware that people sitting near you will hear your music. These may not be the best headphones for people on the go. Besides, they are not the most portable headphones anyway.***

    The bottom line: (1) If you are an audiophile who primarily listens to your music on a portable device, these headphones, or perhaps the SR-80s, are the best on the market. Your iPod doesn't even allow you to fully enjoy these cans, let alone more expensive ones.
