Pros: sound good

Cons: cheap pads, scratchy on ears

This is mostly a "warning" review. These headphones are listed under "over ear" but in fact they are "on ear" headphones. The sound is quite good for the price. The pads that go on the ear are nothing special, consider what you'd pay $3 for from a chinese shop on ebay and those are the pads. If you like "on ear" headphones, consider these plus the alternative pads that are out there (perhaps there Sennheiser's or these are third-parties that also make pads for the Grado's).

I've never seen the SR60, SR80, SR125i, MS1, or even the larger padded SR225, SR325, RS2, and RS1, listed as circumaural phones anywhere. Many people will tell you Grado is far from known for their comfort though. All of your complaints are basically the only things ever mentioned negatively about the SR80i, and really, with any demoing or researching, all of these things would be brought to your attention.
"perhaps there Sennheiser's or these are third-parties that also make pads for the Grado's" :))
