Product Description

Grado's new SR80e headphones take the multi award-winning SR80i and add a new driver design, a new polymer to damp resonant distortion in the plastic housing, and a new cable from plug to driver connection, making this the best model yet.

The SR80e will produce a sound that is pure Grado, with warm harmonic colors, rich full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics, and an ultra-smooth top end. Light and comfortable, the SR80e are ideal for even the longest of listening sessions!

The Grado E Series

Grado have rethought and redesigned every element of the E series, right down to the glue that is used. The SR80's new driver and plastic housing construction move air and react to sound vibrations in a way which all but eliminates transient distortions.

This allows signal flow over the new cable to reproduce sound with greater control of the upper and lower frequencies while still offering the impeccable mid-range that Grado products have become known for.


- Vented diaphragm
- Non Resonant air chamber
- Standard copper voice coil wire
- Standard copper connecting cord
- Mini plug with 1/4" adaptor

Press Reviews

  • What Hi-Fi Award 2019, 2018 & 2017 "Best on-ear under £100" (What Hi-Fi magazine)

  • 'We have real affection for the design, though. The Grados look retro, and not in a superficial way designed simply to look good on a shelf.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine February 2017)

  • 'The open-backed design helps make these headphones sound fast and nimble. Bass is clean and punchy and there’s zero sense of one frequency band bleeding into or encroaching upon another… the SR80es can jump between genres without any obvious flaws highlighted.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine February 2017)

  • 'They’re vital and energetic, and get their results without employing a boost in any particular frequency range... If you’re wondering how the SR80es stack up next to the SR60es, they’re similar but the SR80es have slightly tighter bass and better-defined treble. Let your budget decide.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine February 2017)

  • 'The Grado SR80es are exceptional and exceptionally odd headphones; very similar to the SR80is they replace. Open-back on-ear headphones are a rarity and this pair show unwavering confidence in their unusual approach. These are lively headphones with excellent midrange and treble detail, as well as swift, deep bass for a pair of this size and style.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine February 2017)

    As a keen producer/ songwriter & self confessed audiophile, I needed a pair of headphones that were comfy, accurate and a bit of fun when needed - the sr80e's are everything anybody needs.
    The soundstage is gorgeously wide, the trebles and mids are crisp and pronounced and the bass is taught and never in stupidly over whelming. The open backed design is fabulously airy and light on the head too, I'm probably not going to take them off!
    These headphones are a must have in anybody's collection. Need any more convincing? just read all the other reviews.
    Audio Affair were awesome too... I'll be a customer for a long time!
