Grado SR60x Dynamic On-Ear Open-Back Headphones

The simplest way to experience Grado sound, the SR60x produces an impressive soundstage in an affordable headphone.

Bang for the Buck

The entry-level headphone in the Brooklyn lineup, the SR60x produces the best audio quality at its price point and proves the Grado sound is never out of reach.

Signature Sound

The clarity and range of Grado headphones can reveal new notes and details in songs heard hundreds of times. The driver and housing working in tandem react to sound vibrations and virtually eliminate transient distortions. With harmonic colors, full bodied vocals, and a world renowned mid-range, the SR60x produces easily obtainable Grado sound.

X Series Driver

4th Generation Grado drivers are here. Specifically tuned for the SR60x, this new speaker design features a more powerful magnetic circuit, a voice coil with decreased effective mass, and a reconfigured diaphragm. Reengineering these components for our 44mm drivers improve efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.

New Cables & Headband

Along with the speakers, the cables and headband have been redesigned for the SR60x. Now housed in a more durable exterior, the 4-conductor cable features a super annealed copper wire for improved purity of the audio signal. The new headband features more cushion for a comfier experience. 

Hand-Built in Brooklyn

Each SR60x is hand-built by our team in Brooklyn. This headphone goes from workbench to workbench until it’s ready for your ears. We started building on a kitchen table in 1953, and every experience since then has led to the creation of the SR60x.

Old Model Grado SR60e Information below

Widely regarded as the top affordable headphone, the Grado SR60e is a superb choice for listeners seeking amazing sound quality at a fabulous price.

It's hard to imagine any music fan would be disappointed hearing these unassuming yet potent cans. The SR60e may look slightly retro but the audio performance is perfectly modern with a cheerful, balanced tone on both portable or home gear.

Universally considered the 'entry level' headphone to beat, the Grado SR-60e could officially rate as "The Best Headphone Ever" at this price.

The Grado SR 60e are a classic open-back design with a smooth, intelligible midrange and impressive detail in the upper highs perched above a sweetly punchy low bass response. Our sole minor quibble is a slightly 'sparkly' tone in the uppermost treble ranges rather than the silky sound of extremely well-extended - and certainly MUCH more expensive - audiophile headphones.

Some folks mention that the earpad comfort can become an issue, but gently bending the headband to conform more closely to the top of the head helps alleviate that problem for many wearers.

The style thing is another matter altogether: use the old-school Grado SR 60 e out on the streets or at the club and you may be busted by the ever-vigilant Hipster Fashionista Beats Police.

All kidding aside, this is a surprisingly enjoyable and highly musical headphone that almost every listener will appreciate - and the price sure is right.

Like all Grado headphones ever, the SR-60e employs an open earcup construction with zero isolation from external ambient noise. By the same token, others nearby will hear audio "leakage" coming from open-back headphones when you are listening in quiet places (i.e, libraries, workplace cubicles, late night listening, etc.).

A study in effective minimalism, the Grado SR-60e has a simple flexible headband with basic metal height adjusters that connect the earpieces to the headband and allow for up & down adjustment plus complete 360 degree earpiece rotation. This feature is ideal for laying the headphones down flat for packing them in a briefcase or backpack.

The Grado SR 60e are highly efficient and sound robust from any source you plug them into. The headphone cord length is about 7ft and terminates to a 1/8" [3.5mm] 'mini' plug perfect for smartphones, tablets or laptops. A full-size 1/4" stereo plug adapter handily comes provided with the SR60e.
