Right on their site actually. So proud of mediocre build quality.

If you have seen pics of the Grado factory you would understand the quality. There were pics here awhile back. Try search.

They're hand made/assembled, so that kind of thing is going to happen. Mine look like that, but have only bothered checking just now. So long as they sound fine, they are.

Bass is natural, not pumped up, that's why they sound less bassy than the Bose. More bass doesn't = better SQ. The more natural and balanced it is, the clearer the headphones. All good headphones will aim for this.

Those look about right. Welcome to the world of Grado. Just put them on your ears, play your favorite track, and enjoy.
