more neutral than Grados, created for musicians

classic style

similar to the SR80/125 but cost less - especially outside of the US

open design lets your ears breath, not as stuffy as closed headphones

Cons

poor for use on the go - thick cable, open design and the fact that you can't throw it in your bag

3 agree

not the best quality build

3 agree

Its not comfortable as it always fell off from my ear. As for sound quality, I'm sure most open operating system headphone has the sound isolation problem

The Alessandro MS1 is a high end headphone designed by Grado and Alessandro, and distributed by Alessandro. Designed to be more neutral in their presentation compared to their coloured Grado brethren, the MS series is created for music makers in mind. With the same plastic body as the presteige series (SR60 through 225), the MS1 mixes technologies from the lower end SR60/80 and the middle-of-the-line black sheep, the SR125. Priced at a flat $99 with free world wide shipping, the MS1 is considered an ideal substitute for individuals outside of the US in countries where Grados are priced far above their American MSRPs. The MS1 can be terminated with either a  1/8" (mini - the size for most personal media players) or 1/4" stereo plugs.
