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.
What in the world was I doing with Bose? Holy #$%^! The sound is more full and the depth is incredible. This is unreal. I'm listening to Brendan Perry and the bass is smooth, the cymbals are clear and his voice is just right. I'm pushing the audio through a simple little FiiO A3 Portable Headphone Amplifier (Black).
I could do with a little more punch to the bass. But not much. It's just a touch less than I get with my Bose QuietComfort 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones for Apple Devices, Black. I'm listening to heavier bass now and I don't know, I might not be missing much after all.
The feel of the ear pads are nice, but feels like a standard foam padding. Nothing spectacular. It's comfortable though. It's on-ear and I prefer around the ear, but I'm happy with it. It doesn't cause the hot spots around the ear that is inherent in superaural designs. The ear pieces are plastic. It doesn't feel heavy. In other words, the presentation is plain. I wouldn't know by the feel or look that these offer a marked increase in my listening pleasure. I am seriously considering upgrading to the SR225s or the 325s.
I seriously can't get over the fullness of the sound compared to what I was used to. I figured Bose, right? Great quality. But to my ears, I wanted full, deep sound that I can feel. It's an expansive, immersive sound. Nice. I don't have a pony in the race...I don't work at Bose, Consumer Reports, Grado, or Amazon.
But I can tell you and I recommend these to anyone who wants to have more depth to their music. I really don't think you'll be disappointed.
