Verified Purchase
I owned the GR60 model, which is a great headset for the stereo, but too clunky for a portable like the ipod -- the cord is too long, and the headset too unwieldy for street walking. I was hoping that they would come out with a model with the ipod in mind, and they have. Got it in the mail this past weekend, and have been using it ever since. What a great buy! I have read mixed reviews of this product -- not enough bass, too much high end -- but I have always had to adjust my ipod equalization settings to whatever headphone I am using -- in this case, the r&b selection works fine for all kinds of music. Everything sounds clean, and most importantly, I no longer get listening fatigue. The band is not adjustable, but it is a comfortable fit and I don't feel like my head is being crushed. I have also read some complaints about no noise cancelling feature, but that never bothered me -- to me that is a feature more appropriate for home use than walking in the streets, where one has to be aware of traffic. It sound better than any other headset I have heard for the ipod. Recommended!

I recently bought another set, and found some improvements. One, the wire is a copper color as opposed to the original black, and is firmer then before. Secondly, the ear pads ar emuch more comfortable. The sound is excellent, with clear highs and solid bass; clean, not exaggerated. Still my favorite walking headphones! (I use this with an ipod shuffle and ipod touch)

I've tried Etymonic, Bose, and Shure earbuds, as well as folding or behind the neck style headphones from Sennheiser, Sony, and probably a few others that I'm forgetting right now. The iGrado is by far the best sounding and most comfortable "portable" headphones that I've used, regardless of price (some of the ones in the list above cost over $100).

For working out, I find that earbuds need to be adjusted fairly often, which is really annoying. And from the studies I have read, "open" headphones like the iGrado are better for your hearing than buds if you are going to be wearing them for a while.

I own a pair of Grado SR-225 as my main pair of "at work" headphones and the iGrado comes close to their sound.

The only things I'd change would be to make them foldable and to use a different cord ---it is the same thin ribber that most other manufacturers use and tangles really easily. Another pair I tried had a cord that was more like a woven "cord" or string, and that is far superior. I also think that from a style standpoint, a Grado product deserves a better cord than this. This is a nit though.

Overall, these are well worth the money and IMHO are the best sounding and most comfortable portable headphones/earbuds that you will find.

I'm a dedicated Grado user. For indoors, I use the Grado 226 and 60 headphones. But, until recently, I didn't know Grado made any outdoor mp3 type headphones. As soon as I found out, I ordered a pair.

Wow. The best I've heard. Previously, I used Sennheiser and Koss headphones, which I liked well enough, given the usual limitation of portable headphones. These Grados were instantly and unmistakenly better the moment I plugged them into my mp3 player. The bass was the most noticeable difference. As I listened other aspects of the music that I had never noticed starting coming out. With use over the last two months, my appreciation has only increased.

However, fit was originally a problem, maybe even a big problem. If the sound wasn't so good, I would've returned them because of the fit. They are not adjustable at all. Not the band, not the earcups, nothing. The plastic band is substantial, so reshaping is difficult. I even considered getting out my heat gun to reshape it.

Then, for no apparent reason, they started fitting after a couple of months. I should've known this as the other Grado's, while not having as great a problem initially, also did not fit so well at first. But, over time they sorta conformed to your head with use. These Grado iHeadpones also did so, albeit more slowly. At first they hurt my ears. Granted I used them with sunglasses that have a rather thick bow. Then they just sorta stopped hurting and it wasn't just that my ears got numb, but they just started fitting.

Also, given the size of the headphones, it takes a bit of power to drive them. I'm using an iRiver T60. They sound good, but I have to turn the volume up to about 75% of max. I could see an even less powerful unit having some problems driving these headphones. I've yet to use them with my HeadRoom amp, but I'm guessing they will sound even better.

So, just stick with them, they will payoff.

Ok, so you've probably read a few reviews about these and other headphones... and you may have other headphones in mind... maybe in ear ones, maybe closed back ones... well read this before making a decision.

Yes, these headphones are open backed so if you have the volume up more than a quarter the way, in a quiet room the person next to you will be able to tell whether you're listening to the live version or the album version of Adele's Someone Like You. Some people complain and call them leaky... They're meant to be like this, it's one of the reason their bass will take your breath away. If you want in ear ones, get them without bass and with an ear infection... if you want closed back ones... yeah, they're quiet, but they also sound like you're listening to music in a box.

Yes, they're tight on your head... they're so tight in fact that I'm considering giving a set to my mate's sister, who remarkably has one ear which sticks out as though it's trying to touch her nose, in the hope that it will save her money for the surgery to have it pinned back. Guess what - you get used to it, and yes they're meant to be tight, it's what makes the sound right on your ear not like other over the head headphones whose bass is lost because they rest a little way from your ear. Some say it hurts... if that is pain, then those people would be crippled at how my body feels on a daily basis. Man up

The sound quality - oooh the sound quality. Wear them in, don't listen to them too loudly for the first month (if you use headphones regularly)... then after a month or so, put your old iPod headphones in and AB them (compare them). You'll notice how tinny and lacking in bass your old headphones were.
