Grado Prestige Series SR80e

 

This is the SR80e, Grado's next-gen version of its SR80 Prestige Series on-ear open-back headphone. It replaces the SR80i and at $99 (£99.95 in the UK, AU$179.00 in Australia) , it's easily among the best-sounding headphones you can get for under $100...

The Grado SR80e headphones offer impressive sound for the modest $100 price and are comfortable to wear, especially for an on-ear model. Thanks to the open-back design, stereo imaging is more spacious and natural.

Open-back design lets noise in; beefy plug isn't compatible with many smartphone cases.

While the open-back design isn't good for noisy environments, the Grado SR80e headphones sound exceptionally good for $100 and are also comfortable to wear.

Well known for their excellent headphones, Grado also makes cartridges, and this is an able performer - although fiddly to fit

Smooth sound ; tonally balanced ; cohesive

The real deal

 

While the bass is ok, the highs are about as smooth and extended as anything I\'ve heard.

Excellent Sound

This product is Top-of-the-Line

 

This cartridge produces supurb sound from vinyl records. I have used Grado cartriges for over 20 years and a good cartridge and needle make all the difference.
