Grado SR60i


When it comes to headphones, there's been an embarrassment of riches lately, so much so that it's not uncommon to see completely different model lineups every year. Manufacturers seem to be churning out new designs or styles as soon as we start getting...

Wide-open, clear, and well-detailed sound ; Awesome midrange and vocal detail ; Deep, tight, and articulate bass ; Fatigue-free and pristine treble ; Sounds great on all different kinds of music ; Surprisingly comfortable fit and design

Space-age looks may be off-putting for some ; Foam earpad cushions can wear out over time

Even if you can spend more, you owe it to yourself to listen to the Grado SR60i before purchasing your next set of headphones.

Grado SR60 Headphones Review - Intro


The Grado SR60s follow the trend of all other Grado headphones: an open-backed design with a large air chamber. This automatically means the SR60s are best suited for a home environment, where they will provide an open, airy listening experience....

Conclusion Really, we can't say much more about the SR60s that we didn't already say in their value section. They look like cheap plastic or, at best, provide some '80s nostalgia aesthetics. Their sound quality is never bad, but it's not really...

Grado SR60


These bulky but effective open-air headphones with solid bass and midrange response are the least expensive headphones we tested that are worth the addition of an amp. If you're into the retro look, value durability, and want an extra-long cable, then...

Grado Prestige Series SR-60i


Retro-styled, over-the-ear model; sounds swell with portables; big bass; lively sonics.

Not the slickest-looking or most comfortable 'phones you can buy.

Grado's cheapest headphones belt out big sound with pint-size portable audio devices.

Grado SR60i Review


Great value for your price

Grado SR60i headphones can be your favorite for a number of reasons. Not for its down to earth price but at the same time, its funky style may impress you the best. People just love these headphones for their reasonable price and multi-function...

Well, some drawbacks of the Grado SR60i headphone sets might disappoint you as well. First, these headphones are not befitting when you are outside. Next, the thick cable and the open design of this headphone set may create obstacles sometimes

Grado SR60i is priced at $79.00.

Best value full-size headphones


The Grado SR60i headphones replaced the top-rated SR60s in early 2009, and professionals and users alike are as impressed with the Grado SR60i's value as with that of its predecessor. The Grado SR60i has an upgraded driver design from the...

Great sound quality, great value, lightweight, suitable for portable players

Comfort, sound leakage, retro style

Grado SR60i Headphones


The SR60i by Grado headphones are most known for their retro or old school look but also for their extreme high sound quality, nothing for this price sound any better. The SR60i have a very rich and natural sound with great detailed bass, clear highs...

The Grado SR60i, compared to the SR60


The "i" update. Real or gimmick?

Thanks to Dayak and Annoep for making this review possible.

Grado Labs SR60


The SR60s are an on-ear option from Grado Labs. They certainly have a different aesthetic when compared to other modern headphones. They look a bit 80s, and the plastic looks cheap, but they have a certain nostalgic charm. The cups can rotate in a full...

A scientific, in-depth analysis with side-by-side comparisons

Really, we can’t say much more about the SR60s that we didn’t already say in their value section. They look like cheap plastic or, at best, provide some ‘80s nostalgia aesthetics. Their sound quality is never bad, but it’s not really outstanding...
