Disadvantages: A bit loud for anyone nearby
About 22 years ago [is it really that long!] I bought my first "quality" headphones - Beyerdynamic DT350's. That was the start of a long love affair. I loved everything about them. The sound was unbelievable [I'm not an expert so can't quote frequency ranges etc etc but lets just say they were perfection. They were also very very comfortable.
Unfortunately like all things they eventually [about 3 years ago] started to fail - one of the wire was loose and sound in the left earpiece would cut in and out. At the time I opted to replace them with Sennheiser T130's - wireless - fairly good but well short of the mark. I put up with them for a while but went back the the Beyer's until my son stood on them and I had to accept that they were finished. I shopped about, read numerous reviews and eventually decided to try the Grados. As per previous review my first impression [when I saw the box] was not favourable! However on opening the box the design appealed to me - again as said before it is pretty old school but it appeals to me. I popped them on and was blown away! Sound quality is out of this world - I would say it does not match the Beyers but they had the advantage of having 20+years to bed in. I don't find them as comfortable as the Beyers but that's not to say they are uncomfortable. Overall I think they will in time become worthy successors.
Summary: Buy them!!
