Grado Labs SR80 On-ear Headphone Review$99.00
It's easy to see why the Grado Labs SR 80s are popular, but there are a few quirks that make these cans less than ideal for the high-end audio crowd. It has its draws, but when they're coupled with things like high distortion, tracking problems, and exposed connections, it's a little tough to hold the SR 80s up as an example of great headphones for the price.
That's not to say that these are objectively bad: they're not. They have a great frequency response, are comfortable, and have a fun retro look that should please those who are into that sort of thing. Still, it's not enough to mask the deficiencies of the headphones, and considering their high distortion, are more like the Instagram of audio products.
If you're looking for a more affordable set of open-back headphones for at home, these cans are not a bad bet, usually coming in at just under $100. Still, see if you can try them out before buying, as not all will like their audio.
