Critically acclaimed as one of the best values in headphones today, the Grado SR60 is a classic. Hand crafted in Grado's Brooklyn facility, the SR60 is the cheapest of the 5 cans found in the Prestige Series. Featuring a heavily coloured sound signature these are the furthest from neutral you can get. Punchy bass, forward mids, clear highs and an in-head soundstage make for one of the most fun listening experience $69 can buy. Especially recommended for rock!

Hey GT-D - how did they fall apart? The build quality and comfort due to it aren't the best on the Grados, but it's so simple that it's easy to fix and maintain - which is part of the beauty of them. My SR80 fell apart while on vacation, the metal bar holding the left cup to the frame fell apart in both places (the rubber tip came off and it came out of the cup itself). A bit of super glue later and it's back better than ever.

Had a pair of these that I used rather roughly and eventually they fell apart. Amazing headphones though - was my fault that they broke.

I stopped listening to headsets of any kind since then because I found they all caused jaw tension for some reason... but if I were to pick up a new pair I'd be sure to pick up one of the higher end Grado sets.
