Grado SR80i headphones are upgraded versions of the popular and award winning SR80, featuring a new driver design and improved high quality copper cable, they offer stunning performance. The SR80i are similar to the SR60i, but feature a better cable and larger ear cushions, resulting in a more open sound stage and better bass. This improvement in bass resonance also enhances overall detail and results in a more balanced sound quality.

What Hi-Fi Award 2013 - Best Home On-Ears Up To £150
"Best home on-ears up to £150, Awards 2013. Not for public use, but for pure sound quality at this price, a superb buy. Don't take them on the train with you: the person next to you will hear every single note, and, let's face it, not everyone likes Michael Buble. But, for home listening where it won't bother the spouse, the SR80is are simply a stupendous buy for £110. Sound per pound? You betcha." (What Hi-Fi Magazine Awards October 2013)
"Don't take them on the train with you: the person next to you will hear every single note, and, let's face it, not everyone likes Michael Buble...but, for home listening where it won't bother the spouse, the SR80is are simply a stupendous buy...sound per pound? You betcha." (What Hi-Fi Magazine)
"The fact is, headphones are used for private listening. Which means most models utilise a closed-back design, which keeps you from inflicting your music on those around you...but this design also creates a plethora of internal reflections, enclosure vibrations and standing waves – all of which are seriously detrimental to sound quality...so, what's to be done? Well, it's to Grado's great credit that it decided to answer that question with a method of mind-boggling simplicity: make open-backed headphones that leak sound like there's no tomorrow but which, as a result, sound sublime to the person wearing them." (What Hi-Fi Magazine)
"The SR80is have a serious point. And that point is how they sound – sharply timed, awesomely detailed, musical, natural and – with the right recordings – simply beautiful." (What Hi-Fi Magazine)
"Best home on-ear headphones up to £150, Awards 2010. Not for public use, but for pure sound quality at this price, a superb buy." (What Hi-Fi Magazine)
"These lovely headphones offer a decent glimpse of the glorious sound their 16-times more expensive siblings can provide...beautifully revealing, detailed and musical performance." (What Hi-Fi Magazine)
- Great sound... only in privateReview by Tom H
But the being open headphones, a great deal of sound escapes into the room around you... which is less than fantastic if you're in a public place or in a room with other people.
If you're an audio-fanatic, and don't particularly care about the feelings of others, you've found the perfect headphones.
Great service from Audioaffair. (Posted on 17/01/2013)
