Engadget Summary

Grado's made-in-Brooklyn SR60s are among the best sub-$100 headphones on the market, providing deep, satisfying bass while maintaining high-end sharpness and clarity, even at high volumes. The SR60i, introduced in 2009, tweaks the mid-90s design slightly, adding better cushioning and an improved driver, while maintaining the SR60's classic look and sound. While their open-back design means you won't want to take the SR60 on the road, they're perfect for at-home listening, whether they're connected to your HDTV, computer, digital audio player, or old-school hi-fi.
