What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Alessandro Grado MS1 Headphones
  • The unit is light enough and with sufficient give in the headband’s tension that I’ve never felt uncomfortable wearing them.
  • These are a good set of headphones. Light but sturdy. They feel well made.
  • The headband is basic, but it does adjust well enough and they're so light I didn't find it uncomfortable.
  • Have used Grado phones for years - excellent response, reasonably lightweight and comfortable.
  • The structure of these headphones is sturdy and it doesn't feel cheap at all. They are quite light. It should last long I believe.
Grado SR80e Prestige Series Open Backed Headphone
  • I actually find them to be more comfortable than most I've tried.
  • So to sum up, I love these! Beautifully presented, comfortable, and very impressive.
  • I've only had them a short while but the build feels good and i dont see any obvious signs that they are likely to fall apart any time soon.
  • Have used Grado phones for years - excellent response, reasonably lightweight and comfortable
  • "I like the looks, the size can be easily adjusted, and it stays in place "

What customers say about "Features"
Alessandro Grado MS1 Headphones
  • The sound is very quiet, and crackles heavily sometimes cutting out entirely.
  • These headphones are fantastic. Put them over your ears and close your eyes! What an experience!
  • The sound is bright and crisp, with incredible detail. You hear things that you previously didn't appreciate in music, thats my experience anyway.
  • These headphones are highly rated on audiophiles forum, and that's the reason why I've bought them.
  • These have very quickly become my favourite headphones. Comfortable, sound great and great value.
Grado SR80e Prestige Series Open Backed Headphone
  • I personally love the function first approach. What you can't fail to be blown away by is the sound quality.
  • The soundstage and presence it uncanny, just like cleaning your windows to the sound. I was a bit reluctant to buy these because I have headphones for 3 times the price.
  • This is the sort of sound you expect from a high end speaker setup, not two little speakers that sit over your ears.
  • These continue to sound better with time. Amazing detail, accurate reproduction of recordings.
  • If you love audio, or you're someone that spends a lot of time listening to high quality music, you'll appreciate the sound that comes from these.
