Widely regarded as the top affordable headphone, the Grado SR60i is a superb choice for listeners seeking amazing sound at a great price. It's hard to imagine any music fan would be disappointed hearing these unassuming yet potent cans. The SR60i may look retro, but the performance is right up to date with a cheerful, balanced tone on both portable and home gear.

What We Think:
Long considered the headphone to beat in the competitive 'under-$80' category, the SR60i competes as "The Best Headphones Ever" at this price. These on-ear (supra-aural) open-back cans deliver a smooth, liquid-sounding midrange and engaging detail in the highs along with a clean, punchy bass response. The sole quibble is a slightly 'sparkly' sound in the uppermost treble ranges rather than the silky top-end of extremely well-extended -- and certainly MUCH pricier! -- audiophile headphones. A few customers mention that the foam earpad comfort can be a fit issue, but gently bending the headband to conform more closely to the top of the head helps alleviate that for most wearers. The style thing is another matter: use the SR 60 with an uber-hip iPad or iPhone and you may be busted by the vigilant Fashionista Police. All kidding aside, this is a really enjoyable, musical headphone that almost every listener could appreciate -- and the price sure is right.
Like all Grado Labs headphones, the SR60i is an 'open' earcup design providing no isolation from outside ambient noise. By the same token, others could potentially hear "leakage" from open-back headphones when listening in quiet places or when someone's sitting nearby (i.e, libraries, workplace cubicles, late night listening, etc,.). Instead you might want to choose a closed/sealed-back headphone if listening privacy and isolation are needed for your particular situation.
A study in effective minimalist design, the Grado SR60i has a very basic flexible vinyl headband with simple metal height adjusters that connect the earpieces to the headband, thus allowing for up & down adjustment plus complete 360 degree earpiece rotation. This feature is ideal for laying the headphones down flat -- perfect for packing them in a briefcase or backpack. The SR-60i are very efficient & well-driven by portable players or inexpensive home equipment. The straight headphone cord measures roughly 7.5ft from the earcups to the plug tip, exits both earcups in a "Y" design, and terminates to a 1/8" (3.5mm) 'mini' plug. A 1/4" full-size stereo plug adapter handily comes provided with the SR60i cord. The free 1-year SR60i product warranty is directly handled exclusively by Grado Labs, the manufacturer, located in Brooklyn, NY only with your HeadRoom 'Grado authorized dealer' purchase receipt!
