Grado GR8

7 Reasons why Grado GR8 is better

than the average

1.Explicitly lower low-frequency
20Hzvs 38Hz (the average)
vs 1Hz (best: Sony MH1CBLK)
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
9gvs 191g (the average)
vs 3g (best: AKG IP2)
3.Has sound isolation / passive noise reduction
Yesvs No (51% don't have it)
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.Distinctly higher sound pressure level
118dB/mWvs 104dB/mW (the average)
vs 130dB/mW (best: Audeze EL-8 Titanium)
Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
5.Has included ear pads
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
Allows you to change ear pads without buying new ones.
6.Has an L-shaped plug
Yesvs No (68% don't have it)
An L-shaped plug is better if the jack is on the left or right side of the device, so that the cable isn't bent, and is less likely to break when the device is in your pocket.
7.Has an in-ear form
Yesvs No (67% don't have it)
The in-ear device is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. It is inserted in the ear canal itself and blocks out a lot of environmental noise. It has stronger bass tones and is unlikely to fall out of the ear.
