Grado SR60i Headphones

Got a Classic Look eh? 🙂

There was a chance for me to get some thing brought down from Amazon, so i brought a set of headphones (and a sound card). I am nothing close to an audiophile so whatever i say about this set of headphones is coming from an ordinary geek.

Pros

  • Overall grate sound quality.
  • Lows, Mids and Highs all sounds good.
  • I hear more sounds (ie: i hear some instrument playing in the background which i have never heard before, in a familiar song.) than i used to hear though my speakers.
  • Music sounds better through my headphones, when comparing with my 5.1 surround sound system (Creative Impress).
  • The build quality is pretty good. I hope this will last for some time.
  • Connectors are good, i hear no noise.

Cons

  • It is not comfortable to wear. My ears starts paining after a while.
  • This is ‘open air’, so others around you can hear what you are listening to. Can be a nuisance sometimes.
  • Bit heavy and have a 80s look (may be this should be a pro? 🙂 ).
  • For movies and games i would rather turn to my speakers (not really a con i guess…).

I am happy about my investment.
