Headphone Reviews: Grado SR60i



At first glance, the Grado SR60i looks like something a sound technician would've worn during a 1960s newscast while puffing away on a pack of Chesterfields. Plus, what is up with those foam earpads? That said, I did some digging, and apparently these are considered one of the best values in the market for 'audiophiles.'

'If it weren't clear by now, we couldn't be happier with the Grado SR60i headphones. What they lack in frills or features, they more than make up for in sound quality, combining a wide-open and fairly neutral balance with excellent clarity and detail.' - Digital Trends

'Sound is perfectly tuned — the smooth, creamy mids that Grado is known for are there, but they’ve tuned the SR60i to push the bass a little deeper than the older SR60 (without the “i”), and the effect is an extremely pleasing sound that works well with almost any kind of music — bass is never imposing, but never lacking either.' - Cult of Mac

Are these good for dj'ing? From what I'm reading, probably not. But the experts say they're great for listening. And if you're looking to stand out at the local hipster hotspot, wearing these may do the trick. MSRP is a very affordable $79.

Links: Made with Logic Pro at 72 bpm Fun little instrumental blend of Bryson Tiller's Always Forever , which we used in mix 66 , and Mariah Carey's Do You Think of Me , which ended up on the cutting room floor. As you can see up top, I broke out the scalpel and did some slicing to make the beats match up better. Final verdict: Worth it. Follow the playlist on djcheatsheet.com
