Grado SR60

I have had, at a guess, about 10 pairs of headphones in my time. This pair of Grado SR60′s have been with me the longest. Back in the day I remember my Dad purchasing a pair of Sennheiser’s for a Christmas or birthday present, but they disintegrated after about 10 years. I have had the Grado’s for over 10 years now, and although I don’t use them that often these days (they aren’t good for travelling) they still impress me with their clean and open sound. I’ve heard ‘phones more expensive, newer, and in some ways better, but I wouldn’t give up the Grado’s. About 8 years ago I replaced the original foam pads with Yellow Sennheiser pads, which are more comfortable and slightly better sounding. Their retro look (they remind me of old B&W photos with WWII or 1950′s Radio operators) is part of their appeal. If I could afford it, I would love a pair of high-end wooden Grado’s to compliment the SR60s. Honestly, I can’t say too much about these headphones, sure if you want something to block noise they are next to useless, but for the price, they are impossible to beat.
