I jumped the gun and bought a pair of Grado SR80i's and they are MARVELOUS. I think when I put them on they unlock an extra pair of ears within my inner ear's inner ears lol. I have never heard quality of this caliber and I plan on modifying them soon. I'll probably change the wiring on them, get smaller mesh for the sides AND change the ear foawm... probably to the GS1000i size ear foam. I have seen people get wood cups for them but right now I dont have the money for that(but I WILL change the cups eventually).

Congrats! You have now begun the never ending cycle.


I'm curious what kind of music do you like?

Grados are AMAZING for Rock and its subgenres. Nice purchase.

Mostly Rock and Hardstyle techno.

Many remove the button and find it sounds better.

oh lol, i meant smaller as in smaller wire aka more airflow

did you have the sr-80's or the sr-80i's? the difference here being the new ear pads to fix the comfort issues (along with other internal upgrades). sorry to hear you sold them off, i find grados to be some of the best headphones on the planet.

to the person asking about the sr-80i price. they can be had for $100 with free shipping on amazon.

i just ordered a set to use with my pc yesterday. i am pretty excited to start using them.
