SR80x is the second-level headphone model in the Prestige Series, by Grado Labs.

For Grado, the Prestige Series is where it all begins. Featuring their new 4th generation drivers, Prestige is the best way to experience the storied Grado sound for the first time. Including both their first-ever headphone and metal pair, these classics embody seven decades of Grado Labs audio knowledge.

SR80x is the first Grado headphone. This is the legendary model that started it all.

The story of the SR80x holds a special place in the ears of hundreds of thousands of listeners. The first pair was built in 1991 and Grado Labs would not be here today without it. With its soundstage, world renowned mid-range, and speed, the SR80x is worthy of being the longest running Grado headphone.

Grado speakers can reveal new notes and details in songs heard hundreds of times. The driver and housing working in tandem react to sound vibrations and virtually eliminate transient distortions. The full bodied vocals and excellent dynamics compliment the musical characteristics that are brought to light through the extreme clarity and wide range of the SR80x.

4th 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 improve efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.

Along with the speakers, the cables and headband have been redesigned for SR80x. Now housed in a more durable exterior, the 4-conductor cable features a super-annealed copper wire for improved purity of the audio signal. The new headband features more cushion for a comfier experience.

Each SR80x is hand-built by the Grado team in Brooklyn. This headphone goes from workbench to workbench until it’s ready for your ears. We started building on a kitchen table in 1953, and every experience since then has led to the creation of the SR80x.
