Grado has taken one of the world's most legendary headphones and made it even better. The SR60e has a new driver design, a new polymer to better damp resonant distortion in the plastic housing, and a new cable from plug to driver connection. Superiority of the material is harmonised in quality by the open and lucid soundstage of the Grado SR60e.
The open design of the SR60e's ear cups offer a sound that has little noise attenuation from external resonance. This means that those around you will hear sound ‘leaking' from the headphones. However, the advantage of this attribute, due to the lack of sound bouncing back from the earcups, is an open and noticeably lucid sound representation. Portable media players have no difficulty driving the SR60e, nonetheless a headphone amplifier will perk up the overall detail of treble and add additional power to the bass response.
Open cell foam utilised by Grado Labs for the earpads covering the vented diaphragm is made from soft, porous material providing an extra comfortable fit. Metal height adjusters assure the SR60e will stay put when on the move. A rotation of 360° of these metal adjusters also means that the SR60e can lie flat on surfaces making them ideal for travelling.
The way it was meant to sound.
Built on the same characteristics as the predecessor, the SR60e is a touch more superior with an incorporated 4 conductor cable and larger ear cushions providing an even more open soundstage. Bass response is improved resulting in the enhancement of the overall detail.
The Grado SR60e are very efficient and can be driven by the output of most portable players and inexpensive home equipment. A good quality dedicated headphone amplifier will help improve the overall control and detail of the highs, add some heft and authority to the bottom end.
Robust and Comfortable
With swivel earpieces, they also fit snugly against your ears, as well as folding flat for ease of storage. Their construction is tough enough to take a daily commute while still offering long-term comfort.
