    Default Grado Headphones.

    Grado makes some rather interesting headphones, and I heavily have a soft spot for them. They treat your ears to an open clean window along with a prominent midrange. This makes well recorded music sound alive and damned communicative.

    Steve's video is interesting. Must say I do agree with him.

    Don't worry chaps I'm not bloody shilling for the brand!

    I bought a pair of SR60's secondhand and at a good price and I like them a lot. An unforced sound, but it is all there and they do not make your ears sweat!

    Nice headphones the 60's. Even better value secondhand.

    One of my most memorable audio experiences is hearing Grado GS1000 'phones at a show maybe 30-40 years ago..
    My jaw literally dropped.
    Shockingly open and vivid, I'd not heard owt like that before.

    Since then I've owned 325i and enjoyed them a lot, especially with earpads designed for the 1000 series.
    Very open-backed, though, the missus complained and I sold them on.

    GS1000's didn't exist 30 years ago. Or are you exaggerating?
