Advantages: great sound quality, styling
Disadvantages: stupid price
Grado are a company that specialise in headphones that are a mix between vintage styling and new technology. The design of all their headphones are the same but in different materials, they are simplistic but they work. The only flaw is that i find the foam earcups uncomfortable over long periods of time, especially if you have any ear peircings it could cause problems. These in particular are made of mahogany and are part of grado's higher range of headphones.
Design: The styling of these headphones in my opinion is some of the best you can buy around. and they better be really at the price you will pay for them. There is no external cover on the earcups though so they do not keep the noise in. In public places it can be intrusive and people asked me to turn it down a couple of times, not because it is loud but because they do not keep the sound in. But whilst in most headphones this is a sign on bad quality it is not the case here. All the grado headphones have this problem but it doesn't affect sound quality.
Sound quality: The sound quality of all grado headphones is good so you expect with the high price on these they should sound amazing, and they do. The sound has a lot of detail and a near perfect midrange. I fell asleep listening to these many times which is something i have never been able to do with any other headphones.
the high price will put many people off but if you ever find yourself with an extra £500 lying around you won't regret buying them.
Summary: a high price that is justified by the price
