What does the e stand for in the new SR80e from Grado? Extraordinary, thatís what! Built on the same features as theSR60i, but SR80e utilizes a 4 conductor connecting cable and the diaphragms are put through a special 'de-stressing' process in order to enhance inner detail, the result of which gives a more open stage. The new SR80i has an upgraded driver design, and they have enlarged and improved the mass distribution in the plastic housing. The way the SR80iís new driver and plastic housing move air and react to sound vibrations are now less affected by transient distortions. The SR80 provides an improved bass resonance, which enhances the overall detail. With the SR80e you will notice improved control of the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum with both better supporting Gradoís world renowned midrange. The SR80e will produce a sound that is pure Grado, warm harmonic color, rich full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics and an ultra smooth top end. Listen and Enjoy!

"...these are truly wonderful hearphones, they've got the bass energy... ripping into heavy tracks with a gusto that eludes lesser rivals. With vocals they intoxicate with a natural feel and beautifully proportioned soundstage: few headphones can transport you as convincingly... The Grado SR80's are special. Buy'em, and Love'em." --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Slip on a pair of SR80s and listen to an LP, CD or MP3 title stored on an iPod and you will hear an expansive, vibrant sound and every bit of musical detail." / Jules Lund ROLL OF HONOR. What HI-FI "Creating a stereo image of excellent depth and clarity, they ensure every detail is heard, every strand separated." First Headphone ever awarded a "GOLDEN NOTE AWARD" Presented by the Academy for the Advancement of High End Audio. Winner of Audio Video's "GRAND PRIX AWARD" "In the recording studio or for the serious hobbyist, I can't think of a more versatile or dimensionally satisfying personal speaker system." Fi magazine / Vol. 2, No. 4 / Anthony Chiarella "It figures that these Brooklyn-made phones would kick some serious butt. These babies have a pretty big sound; a powerful, tight bottom end, very articulate midrange, and a good top end. They have an airy, open quality-less in your head then most phones near their price." Audio Video / Vol. 1, No. 4 / Steve Guttenberg "If you are looking for a headphone to use as a reference, you may want to go up the line. To me, the SR80 is the price-performance winner."
