  • No Comments

The previous generation SRi was definitely fatiguing in the high frequency department. The veil has been lifted, and the vibe is just so good. Up next is the interaction between electric piano and electric guitar at 2: I can now wear them for hours at a time without any discomfort whatsoever. Every single instrument, vocal included, sounds natural. I never saw the Grado SRes as headphones suited for synth pop.

It was founded by Joseph Grado in , and is considered to be one of the oldest family owned companies in the audio industry, holding 48 patents, including the invention of the stereo moving coil cartridge for a turntable. I now know the difference between the open- and closed-back headphones see my earlier equipment reviews for a detailed explanation, as in this example of Audio-Technica ATH-ADX , and actively select an appropriate pair for a particular sound, just like I pick the right glass for the next drink. Years later [and a dozen of headphones later], I still have and treasure my very first pair of Grados, reserved for the most delicate of listening sessions. This is how a nicely miked electric bass and kick drum are supposed to sound — articulate, tight, and clear. The SRis is the top model in the Prestige Series line. I can now wear them for hours at a time without any discomfort whatsoever. Kudos to the team at Grado. Soon I forget that I am listening, and slowly drift away into that special distant place.

I love the V-MODAs for certain kinds of music, but the bass response was just too bloated in this case. Imaging is excellent as well. Bass is visceral, textured, and punchy — just the way I like it.

The bass present, but not bloated. Close your eyes and imagine yourself in the room.

With its intimate soundstage and precise imaging, the SRes really have an uncanny ability to bring you right into the studio or venue. This is how a nicely miked electric bass and kick drum are supposed to sound — articulate, tight, and clear.

Lastly, the string interlude at 3: Every single instrument, vocal included, sounds natural. The SRes have an impedance of 32? I got goosebumps during the first listen.

But first, a bit about the company….

Treble fatigue is pretty much non-existent on the new model. Treble fatigue is the worst. So why not thank a pair of Grados for that. Find a pair of these headphones and listen to 3: The Grado SRes were uncomfortable when I put them on for the first time. Equipment The SRes have an impedance of 32?

There are tons of interesting things to serifs to in this song. Below are links to CDs referenced in this review. The vocal nuances are so detailed without being analytical.

Specifically, pay attention to the interplay between vocal and piano.

It makes you wonder how other companies manage to make uncomfortable headphones even with layers and layers of padding.

Do yourself a favor. It was a new era and my ears were open.

Because this an open-back pair, I personally recommend the SRis for all of your favorite ambient, modern classical, vocal, piano and experimental pieces. They also sound great through the headphone output on my MacBook Pro and iPhone 6. The highs are exciting without being overly fatiguing. In a world where headphone manufacturers are constantly churning out tackier-looking headphones every year, Prestkge has managed to do the exact opposite.

Once again, not analytical at all. Conclusion The Grado SRe has become my go-to headphone for casual listening. It was especially noticeable in this song at the synth bass entrance at 0: The previous generation SRi was definitely fatiguing in the high frequency department.

Questions?

Everything from the power-coated aluminum housing to the genuine leather headband screams quality. The veil has been lifted, and the vibe is just so good.

After a few days with the SRes, I found them to be much more comfortable.
