About the Grado SR80x

A new take on a legendary classic 

Grados SR80 was the company's first pair of headphones. Without them, Grado wouldn't be where it is today. The SR80x is the most recent iteration of that legendary design. These 'phones bring out new details in songs that you may have never noticed before. When you couple their warm, intricate sound and their surprisingly affordable price, you get a pair of headphones that make a perfect entry point into the world of hi-fi audio.

A new take on a legendary classic 

Grados SR80 was the company's first pair of headphones. Without them, Grado wouldn't be where it is today. The SR80x is the most recent iteration of that legendary design. These 'phones bring out new details in songs that you may have never noticed before. When you couple their warm, intricate sound and their surprisingly affordable price, you get a pair of headphones that make a perfect entry point into the world of hi-fi audio.

The new X Series drivers found in each earcup are a step above those used in the previous version, the SR80e. The drivers have a lighter voice coil, redesigned diaphragms, and a more powerful magnetic circuit. Those things help give these cans fast attack and decay, great imaging and clarity, and solid low-end punch.

Grado also redesigned and upgraded a few other things. They beefed up the headband with extra cushioning to maximize comfort. The company also designed a new cable, using a thicker jacket that houses four conductors made of super-annealed copper wire. The new cable ensures pure, accurate signal transfer, so you won't miss out on the details in your music.

These headphones offer a great bang-for-your-buck. You can drive them off your smartphone, tablet, or computer easily. For even more clarity and detail, you can pair them with a good headphone amplifier.

Hand-built in Brooklyn

Grado started making world-renowned audio equipment in Brooklyn in 1953 and continues to do so today. The SR80x headphones are hand-built in Grado's hometown headquarters on 7th Avenue, just like all of the company's wired headphones.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Grado SR80x on-ear headphones are part of the Prestige Series of headphones that are hand-built at the Grado Labs facility in Brooklyn, NY. The headphones are equipped with a 44mm X Series driver, the 4th Generation of Grado drivers, specifically tuned for the SR80x. Along with new drivers, the SR80x sports a newly redesigned cable and headband for better sound and comfort. Grado Prestige Series headphones have a retro look, and a Signature Sound that is the result of over 65 years of heritage and dedication to quality. Grado Headphones are covered by a 1-year warranty.

Construction: The new 44mm dynamic drivers have a more powerful magnetic circuit than past versions, along with a voice coil with decreased effective mass and a reconfigured diaphragm. This combination makes the headphones more efficient, reduces distortion, and prevents unwanted coloration of your music. The SR80x features "de-stressed" diaphragms that offer a smoother, more open sound quality. These newly-designed drivers are matched to within 0.1dB for optimum stereo imaging. The SR80x features an open back design that produces a full, more realistic experience. The new rugged body helps to eliminate resonances that can cause distortion. This new Prestige Series headphone includes a new headband with more cushioning for a more comfortable listening experience.

Cable: The SR80x has a high-quality 68" 4-conductor audio cable with a 3.5mm gold-plated plug. The cable has been improved with a tougher braided jacket, and a super annealed copper wire for better purity. The plug has a sturdy molded sleeve with ample stress relief. A gold-plated, snap-on 6.5mm (1/4") adapter is included for use with your home audio components.

Note: The size of the plug sleeve may cause interference with some smartphone cases.

Replaceable Cushions: The high-quality foam rubber ear cushions can be removed for cleaning, if needed. If they show signs of wear, you can replace them with the Grado Replacement Cushion S.

Note: The headphone's ear cushions are not covered in the manufacturer's one-year warranty.

Specifications:

  • Frequency Response: 20Hz - 20kHz
  • SPL (1mW): 99.8dB
  • Nominal Impedance: 38 ohms
