To any new or seasoned audiophile, the name Grado is more than likely a familiar friend. Highly regarded for their pure, open, and airy reproduction of music means many have made the higher end headsets their own. In the age of mobility and always on the go lifestyles, ear buds have caught on. Many high end manufacturers such as Ultimate Ears, Shure, Sennheiser, as well as many others can now look forward to a new competitor in the marketplace: Grado. While Grado has neglected this particular niche of the market, they are finally answering many individuals’ pleas and coming out swinging with the GR8.

As far as looks go, you won’t be impressed nor will you gush over any chique design elements. But these are headphones people. Headphones should have only one priority — sounding as best as possible for the money. The single armature Grados aim to please with features such as 20Hz-20,000Hz frequency response, 118db/1mw sensitivity, 120ohm impedance, 20mW power output, and 51″ long cable. Several different sizes and styles of ear tips are of couse included ensuring you get the best possible seal. Is the $300 asking price worth it?
