    I must say I would never have described Grado's as being forward, compared to other brands of headphones.

    I always felt the SR80s the best value headphones back in the day, before you went over 100.

    I have a pair of Grado SR1000s and they are a tad fussy regarding proper impedance matching. My Audio Valve RKv 2 impedance matcher was a real blessing in getting the most from the Audio Valve headphone amp.

    Happy to report back, the SR60 sound just as good, as the 80's.

    Be surprised if they were different as Sr80's Are Sr60's... rebadged.
    Again there are small (1/2 hour DIY ) ,mods to make them more open breathe better that Do make genuine difference.
    Grados are essentially reasonable quality voice coil drivers in a ww2 era housing.
    Tough to fool with the Voice coils . effectively.
    But the Housings? kids have fooled with these happily.

    My audio bits: Thorens / diy phono, CD/dvd player(s), diy pre, F6, Tannoy Golds in my boxes / my xovers, and of course all strung together with basic diy Wires
    Lots of Cd's, yet more audio files, a couple of hundred semi worn Lps.
