Specifically tuned for the SR80x, the X Series Driver features a more powerful magnetic circuit, a voice coil with decreased effective mass, and a reconfigured diaphragm. Reengineering these components for their 44mm drivers improve efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.
Along with the headphones themselves, the cables and headband have been redesigned for the 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 Grado's team in Brooklyn. This headphone goes from workbench to workbench until it’s ready for your ears. They started building on a kitchen table in 1953, and every experience since then has led to the creation of the SR80x.
