Even at the £300 price point these compete very well. I'd pick these over the Sony MDR 1R and some others. These are amazing value!

Why is the Grado SR60I hardly ever recommended?
Gear mentioned in this thread:
1) They are open headphone! A lot of us these days, uses headphone while on the go and the open design of these, rejects a lot of people.
2) comfort! They can be really uncomfortable for long listening section. Stretching the headband does help a lot but some may not be willing to mod it.
3) on ear design... I personally do not like wearing on-ear headphones....
4) double sided cable and non detachable cable may be a deal breaker as well...
HOWEVER, after putting it on my head and hitting the play button, WHO CARES ABOUT THE CONS OF THESE HEADPHONES! THEY SOUND EXCELLENT! Indeed I do prefer it over a lot of headphones at a higher price point.
QFT. It's funny that there's another ongoing thread called "Why do people like Grados so much?" right next to this one. Because of their, for lack of a better word, "unique" sound, they are very polarizing. You either love the Grado sound or you hate it.
