Grado SR80i

8 Reasons why Grado SR80i is better

than the average

1.Clearly 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.
130gvs 191g (the average)
vs 3g (best: AKG IP2)
3.Clearly lower impedance
32Ohmsvs 42Ohms (the average)
vs 4Ohms (best: Flips Solo 2 Social)
Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
4.Has a neodymium magnet
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
5.Appreciably bigger driver unit
40mmvs 34mm (the average)
vs 100mm (best: Audeze EL-8 Titanium)
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
6.Clearly longer cable
2mvs 2m (the average)
vs 6m (best: AKG Q 701)
A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
7.Has an on-ear form
Yesvs No (78% don't have it)
This device comfortably rests on top of your outer ears. As it doesn't block out everything from the outside world, it's preferred in places like office environments and recommended for outdoor activities.
8.Is open backed
Yesvs No (90% don't have it)
The device is designed to allow sound out through the back of the earcup and provides very natural and accurate sound. It's good for home listening.
