I have bought a few different brands, some were good, others were disappointing. The one that sounded the best proved a liability by coming with a pricey, proprietary cable that kept giving out that I replaced two times in a row. I also shelled out for a super high end pair whose packaging and carrying case were more impressive that the cans themselves.
Having read about Grado and its reputation amongst audiophiles I decided to roll the dice on these inexpensive headphones, figuring what have I got to lose at just a hundred bucks? The replacement cord for certain high-end headphones cost more.
Grado doesn’t come in fancy packaging. Warranty information and instructions are printed inside the box to save on manufacturing costs. The resources are all put into the product. Like my past Beats and a pair of Monster DNAs I own, these are on ear headphones and I knew that going in. These aren’t for riding on busses, subways or flights because not only will you hear all your surroundings, those nearby will hear your music. My tastes are my own. I don’t want the world to know that I listen to both Tchaikovsky and Spice Girls.
Grado has a retro look, like something out of early ham radio days. I’m not into style like those other brands I’ve shelled out for, I want substance. I affixed the Grados onto my noggin; turned on my FiiO X1 filled with lossless FLAC files and subsequently proceeded to hear why Grado has such a fine reputation. This is a quality component, manufactured with great care and pride. I wasn’t just listening to a pair of headphones, the crisp and clean sounds filling my ears represent the Grado family tradition. This is a personal product in every sense of the word. Besides the stellar sound, these headphones are sturdy. While affordable, no corners have been cut.
A personal note from John, Jonathan and Matthew Grado was included in the box. All I can say is thank you for living up to your reputation and making America proud. Not every great electronic company is outsourced. I’m wearing a product made in Brooklyn, USA and it sounds good in all fifty states.
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.
