I'm pretty sure he knows how to pronounce his last name..so question resolved!

In any case, like I said, if it's Grey dough, fine. He's American. Now I'm gonna go out on a limb here and bet his last name comes from a European background, and I guarantee that a few ancestors back, his name was pronounced Grah-doh.

But hey, the man clearly said Gray-dough. I'll stop it there...

For the rest of the world Grah-doh would be the proper way to pronounce it.

If it's Grey-dough, fine, but I hate when words get completely miss-pronounced by ignorance.

As an example, how would you pronounce Enrique? I'm gonna assume En-ree-kay, right? Without a second thought, that would be the first assumption. Which is utterly wrong.

Isn'r Grado a European name/word? If so, I bet a pretty penny that it's not Grey-dough.

No, we pronounce it exactly how it sounds. Excuse my American ignorance but from my standpoint you seem pretty ignorant as well. Don't bring this whole "American" thing into the subject just because you've been pronouncing it wrong the whole time.

I don't really care if its Gray-Do, because Grah-Do sounds better and more refined. :D



In our country, we pronounced "a" as in "ahhh" so I read it "Grahhh-dohh" SR60. However, the reseller in our place call it - "Gray-do". Therefore, I assumed that the reseller is speaking it in the American way. Anyway, I love my Grado SR60!

"Mahhhhry" Christmas everybody, I mean "Merry Christmas Everybody!biggrin.gif
