Fourth Generation Grado drivers are here. Specifically tuned for the SR80x, this new speaker design features a more powerful magnetic circuit, a voice coil with decreased effective mass, and a reconfigured diaphragm. Reengineering these components for our 44mm drivers improves efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.
Along with the speakers, the cables and headband have been redesigned for the SR80x. Now housed in a more durable braided sheathing, the 4-conductor cable features a super annealed copper wire for improved purity of the audio signal. The new headband features more padding for a more comfortable experience.
Founded on a kitchen table in 1953, Grado Labs has been perfecting the art of sonic reproduction every day since. This SR80x has traveled from workbench to workbench until ready for your ears. Every experience since that kitchen table has led to the creation of the SR80x.
