Help! Grado 80's or 60's?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
My RioVolt SP250 just arrived and I was wondering the difference between the Grado 80's and the 60's. What would be some good earphones for about $140.00? I was leaning toward the 80's, but am open to suggestions. I will only use the headphones for my portable. Thank you.

Thanks for the responses thus far. Looks like the 60's are out. My next question...Grado 80's or Alessandro / Grado MS-1's? Are the MS-1's suitable with portables?

If you buy the 60s you may be disappointed later on...

But, the MS-1 share the same specs as the 125 and they cost less than $100 US dollars. Maybe the best deal in Grado.

Where can I get the MS-1 for $100? Thanks friend.

Anything but the 60s. They're good phones, but after owning them for awhile, I should have defintly sprung for the 80 for that extra bass.
