A Music Direct Best-Seller for over 10 Years
What does the "i" stand for in the new SR-80i from Grado? Improved, that’s what! Built on the same features as the SR60i, the SR-80i receives a few upgrades. First, an upgraded 4 conductor connecting cable for greater resolution. Then 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.
"Creating a stereo image of excellent depth and clarity, they ensure every detail is heard, every strand separated."

The new SR-80i gets an upgraded driver design, as well as a new plastic housing, enlarged with improved mass distribution for lower resonance. The way the SR-80i’s new driver and plastic housing move air and react to sound vibrations are now less affected by transient distortions. The SR-80i provides improved bass power, which enhances the overall detail. The SR-80i offers improved control of the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum which complements Grado’s world renowned midrange. The SR-80i is pure Grado, warm harmonic color, rich full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics and an ultra smooth top end. Listen and Enjoy!
"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."
— Steve Guttenberg, Audio Video
"...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."
