In the world of precision-engineered headphones with premium materials (and price tags), Grado Labs decides to plunk a quality sound driver into a utilitarian housing, and calls it a day. In doing so, they’ve developed an adoring audiophile fanbase myself included for their no-nonsense philosophy.
First Impressions:All about the sound. Big chunky drivers behind the grill, thick cable, no adornment necessary.
At home, in transit, at work, and everywhere in between.
A piece of utilitarian, no-frills equipment, with a retro look.
The main reason for owning these. Crisp highs, smooth mids, deep bass for any type of music. Open-air design might disturb others in quiet public places, though.
Great value. Surprisingly good sound quality encased in a cheap but functional, sleeper-styled design.
