Listening

Listening:
"A lot of negative reviewers complain about the sound leakage but they must be listening from a train wreck."
_
"However, I eventually listened to an all-time favorite mix on the SR-60s--and I still remember how mesmerized I was by the layers of this song I had missed on other listening systems."
_
"Perfect for my listening needs."
_
"The cord is a little long for travel, but these are best suited for more stationary listening anyway."
_
"Grado actually includes a note about listening at reasonable volume levels, which I agree with, but shouldn't a quality set of headphones sound good at a variety of levels?"
_
"However, neither of these were major issues for me, and I found them mostly comfortable for my usual 1-2 hour listening sessions."
_
"Excellent for Listening to Music and Ham radio ."

Music

Music:
"If you listen to a lot of bass heavy music, you'll definitely be missing some low end thump, but the clarity is unreal with these headphones."
_
"***caveat: open air back design - your music will be heard clearly by those around you."
_
"Of course not as beautifully and at the same volume as you are, but they are NOT isolating anyone from your music."
_
"I wouldn't recommend deep bass music, like rap or EDM."
_
"The music becomes irritating and indistinguishable from the general noise."
_
"They sound better than everything I've used borrowed tested listened to in this price range and certainly lived up the words printed on the box: Hear the music you've been missing! "
_
"A stellar second pair of headphones for anyone who seriously enjoys their music."
_
"But you're not buying these for anyone but yourself (or the gift recipient) who will get to comfortably listen to music as if they have a personal concert wherever they're sitting."
_
"But if you don't mind the sound leakage and you love music, buy them."
_
"Well, the music from these doesn't sound like it's in your head."
_
"Excellent for Listening to Music and Ham radio ."

Price

Price:
"There isnt another pair of headphones comparable to the SR-60s in its price range, which is surprisingly just below $100.The only downside to the SR-60s is that they operate with an open back, leaking sound out to the surrounding world."
_
"Love these headphones, not only they are very affordable, but they are the perfect size ( not too big and bulky to walk with) but the sound quality is great, the only thing I don't like that much is how long the connection cable is , other than that, if you want great sound quality for less than $100.00, these Grado model is a great option."
_
"The housing is made of cheap, hollow plastic, and the headband is covered in an unpleasant vinyl faux-leather material."
_
"Hard to beat at this price."
_
"It is clear that all of the money has gone into the sound production."
_
"Very good sounding headphones for a very good price."
_
"But that is a small price to pay for the great joy of these Grados."
_
"Light and simple, cheap but GOOD."
_
"These are nice headphones for their price."

Quality

Quality:
"Only thing that isn't comfortable is that high quality cable, I personally don't like double sided cables because they always like to annoy me."
_
"I'm sure that puts a lot of audiophile or hi-fi enthusiasts on edge, but for high quality sound on a low budget these are supremely enjoyable."
_
"The design is anything but sleek, but the build quality is first-rate, the sound is superb, and the value is absolutely unbeatable."
_
"Nice and comfy with exceptional sound quality."
_
"But yeah, excellent sound quality, excellent build quality."

Sound

Sound:
"Cheaply made, tinny sound, harsh treble, uncomfortable foams."
_
"From doing some music production work, I'm fairly skilled with an equalizer, but I was never able to achieve the sound I'd hoped for."
_
"In short: The sound signature, which is very bright--in my opinion excessively so."
_
"I wish they made an alternate, smoother, more comfortable pad that would not alter the perfect sound coming out of these headphones."
_
"The sound is excellent and the cabling is ridiculous."
_
"Both of those are terrible excuses for good sound."
_
"I'm sure that puts a lot of audiophile or hi-fi enthusiasts on edge, but for high quality sound on a low budget these are supremely enjoyable."
_
"It is clear that all of the money has gone into the sound production."
_
"These sound great, are comfortable, and have a nice feel to them."
_
"Very good sounding headphones for a very good price."
_
"The design is anything but sleek, but the build quality is first-rate, the sound is superb, and the value is absolutely unbeatable."
