John grade says he strove for the best sounding phones for the money and with the glowing reviews the SR80's have received, who can argue. Product features: Vented diaphragm, no resonant air chamber, standard copper voice coil wire, standard copper connecting cord, mini plug with 1/4" adaptor.

Regarding bass, it's less than closed headphones, but certainly not weak. It's present, and in almost the right amount. I would prefer it to be a little more, but it's certainly not a deal breaker. The clarity I get with these more than makes up for it.
I can't say enough about the crispness of these headphones. I hear audio in my music that was drowned out with my other headset. The fact that they are made in USA is also a nice bonus. It also has a nice, thick set of wires that seem as though they will last a long time.
The downside to these is that I find them uncomfortable after about an hour or two of use. There is too much pressure on my ears, and the head strap itself desperately needs a thick cushion underneath. However, the width of the strap is perfect. I will probably add a cushion of my own on it.
Bottom line: very glad I bought these, would do it again.
Immediately took them for a test drive with Pink Floyd, and was able to comfortably wear them for 90min straight. Your mileage may vary comfort wise, and I can see how some people complain of the comfort issues. If you wear glasses you'll definitely want to take them off for longer sessions, or upgrade the padding.
Sounds quality wise, it was incredible. This is my very first pair of high-quality headphones, so I'm not going to compare them to anything else because I simply don't know any better, but I will say that if you've never used any before it's amazing how much more amazing your favorite music becomes when you can hear every little detail clearly. If you're not an audiophile and don't plan on becoming one, this will certainly be the best bang for your buck, look no further and spend no more than you have to for good sound.
These are open air speakers, meaning they are NOT suited for crowded environments like airports where the background noise will ruin the quality of the sound you're hearing. Quiet or private areas like libraries and dorm rooms are also a no-go. Past about 40% power you'll be sharing what you're hearing with everyone around you, and that's just rude, so don't be that guy/gal. They're perfect for listening at the computer or TV in front of the couch.
If you need some insulated over-ear speakers to hide your sound in or drown out the world with, then these are NOT for you.
Oh, and you paid $80-$100 for these. Don't forget to buy a dang hard case for them!
The sound is rather on the bright and forward side to my ears, and while I find bright headphones to be fatiguing at times, overall I find these be very engaging while still being smooth. The bass performance is also surprisingly clear and full.
Keep in mind these are relatively light, plastic headphones. Again that's not necessarily a bad thing as light headphones can be comfortable to wear.
One oddity is that while the cord feels reasonably sturdy, it is a bit odd that the sub-mini plug is quite large, too large to fit through some phone cases. You many need to order a separate sub-mini extension cable. On the other hand these do come with a 1/4" headphone adapter, something I appreciate as I'm using these with a Schitt Magni headphone amplifier. Speaking of which, these headphones are quite efficient so you likely don't need a headphone amplifier. My iPhone drives the headphones just fine. It's just a personal preference of mine to use an external amp.
Very good headset all around, and recommended, especially for this price.
Unfortunately, these were not the headphones I was looking for. While the pads themselves were surprisingly comfortable, after leaving them on for an hour or so I had to take them off for a while before I was able to wear them again without getting too distracted by the irritation they were giving to my ears. As a musician I'm constantly listening to music, so I need long listening periods, and these didn't fit that criterion.
That said, the sound quality is superb. I own a pair of AT-M50x's, which are far more comfortable, and I consider them roughly equivalent in quality to these in terms of detail and reproduction of sound despite the M50x's being nearly twice the price. You should take the comparison with a grain of salt since Grados are built to have a colored sound while M50x's are intended to have a neutral response, but detail is detail and these were able to resolve nuances in sound that blew my old $80 pair of Audiotechnicas out of the water.
I returned this product because of a faulty connector in the headband, but if it wasn't for this product being too uncomfortable I absolutely would have sent it back to Grado for warranty repair. It really is a great pair of entry-level headphones for those who don't mind on-the-ear builds.
