GRADO SR60e review

Sound

The bright feature of these open back headphones is a wide soundstage with bright imaging that makes the sound flow harmoniously, airy, and engaging. However I should admit, that the mids and highs sound brighter than lows and may seem even sharp at times. They also lack a bit of bass strength. The GRADO SR60e will suit for neutral listening and it is great with its clear instruments and vocals.

Connectivity

The headphones GRADO SR60e connect with a wire only and it is non-detachable. The ¼” adapter in a set helps to widen the choice of devices for its connection.

Comfort and design

The GRADO SR60e is very light with 220 g/7.8 oz of weight and it fits comfortably on the head. It has an adjustable headband that is not amply padded but it is not required for its light weight. The cups are not foldable but you will hardly need to carry the open back type of headphones out. The cup cushions seem not very soft and durable. I like the on-ear wearing style for its breathability. They are nice for long wearing.
