Your Music is More.
Everyone loves a thumping bass and kick-drum, but not at the expense of
everything else. The Grado SR60e Prestige Headphones is your entry to the world
of full spectrum audio. You'll actually hear notes you never knew were there.
Perhaps your audiophile friends have fueled a desire for the legendary Grado
sound but you thought it was out of reach. Try a pair of their affordable
open-back headphones and experience fuller, more realistic sound. Club-footed
imports can't match the sonic enlightenment from Brooklyn, USA.
"...an outstanding home headphone that has little competition at or anywhere
near the price. If you are looking for a headphone that is capable of a truly
hifi performance at a sensible price, this is it." - AV Forums, Ed Selley
Grado has taken one of the world's most legendary headphones and made it even
better. The SR60e has a new driver design, a new polymer to better damp resonant
distortion in the plastic housing, and a new cable from plug to driver
connection. The way the SR60e's new driver and plastic housing move air and
react to sound vibrations virtually eliminate transient distortions. This allows
the signal flow over the new cable to reproduce sound that has tight control of
the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum, while supporting Grado's
world renowned midrange. The SR60e will produce a sound that is pure Grado, with
warm harmonic colors, rich full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics, and an
ultra-smooth top end.

"...in my opinion, the SR60i is better than the original, and remains one of
audio's great bargains." - Jim Austin, Stereophile, May 2010
"Focus is a good thing. Especially, if you are still listening to MP3s.
Heretics. The SR60s are much better with lossless. With vinyl and a good
headphone amp? Crazy good. Sort of like pizza with more than one piece of fresh
mozzarella and real sausage. The real deal. Do not walk. Run and buy them."
"...the Grado SR60s may be the best audiophile value in the world." - Ed
Kobesky, Positive Feedback Online
"If you don't feel like jumping into this way of listening with a big
expenditure, buy these with no doubts and plug'em into your headphone output."

many times their price... Way recommended!" - Corey Greenberg, Stereophile
