be hard pressed to find a better pair of headphones for the money than
the Grado SR60. The upper mids/highs reveal excellent detail, and the
bass is solid too. I bought a pair about 8 years ago and I swear the
price was the same as it is today. Good price, simple looks, practical
and sophisticated where it counts: in the sound."

to try a pair. Yikes!! I thought hi-fidelity was dead as a result of
digital. But not so! Your excellent phones have re-kindled my love of

made in Brooklyn, and they look as if they stepped out of a '60s music
studio, with their black plastic backs and retro styling. But make no
mistake; these are modern phones with the best sound of the phones we
tested. Audio is lifelike and balanced, with a nice open quality to the

love my iPod but hate its wimpy, tinny earbuds. So I replaced them with
a pair of Grado SR60s. They look like AV lab equipment circa 1981 yet
cater to audio snobs, packing high-end quality into lightweight plastic
ant foam. These can give vibrant fidelity, even at low volume.
