Bottom Line:   
I've bought these headphones in the local audio store after reading a lot of raving reviews. After using them daily for 2 months I've decided to sell them because I don't like the sound.

The foam padding is uncomfortable, after one or two hours your ears really get sore because of the stiff foam edge. I've used them in combination with a modded X-Can V2, the sound is very bright and makes my ears tired.

The built quality is good, apart from the splitter that divides the audio cord into left and right. When I bought the headphones the cable was already slightly torn at his part, showing the white interior cable.

Grado SR-80. I've owned my pair since the late 1980's. I love the sound they produce. I hate to wear them for more than 30 minutes, they are so damn uncomfortable.

Bottom Line:   
Compared the SR80 to SR60. There was a slight difference between the two headphones, but I did not feel the SR80 was better. The SR60 was a better deal.

Bottom Line:   
I have the Grado Labs GS1000 and i can attest to these being the best sounding headphones ive ever heard bar none! Whether i am listening to classical music to hard hitting rock these headphones deliver! I am using them with a CMOY type pocket sized amp and they seem to drive them great.
