Grado Prestige Series BR 80e

grado 3

 

Complete review and price

The Grado prestige Series headphones are open back on-ear professional studio headphones .Even if they are not my first first choice when it comes to studio headphones ( I’ll explain why later ) and I hesitated to put them in list at first, I was thinking about how worth they are considering their price. As I know many beginners or even more advanced producers are tight on budget.When it come to price/quality they are almost unbeatable! Most of the headphones I presented so far, are more expensive and maybe too expensive for some of you.The Grado’s are not THE best headphones on the market but definitely one of the best headphones under 100 $. read more!
