    Hi all

    I am looking to buy a pair of Grado headphones. Any one know where to direct me online for purchasing this?

    I have looked at ebay, amazon but no other major sites.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks but headphone.com only ships within the U.S. I live in Canada and nothing is available up here.

    Even Amazon.com will not ship here while Amazon.ca have no stock.

    Grado Headphones

    I bought my Grados from Audio Advisor in Michigan.

    You sure you want Grados? They'll make your ears beg for mercy - not in a good way ;) If you wear them for any duration of time they HURT, at least they did on my head. I tried some aftermarket pads, helped a little, but Grados just aren't designed with comfort in mind (retro styling takes priority I guess?). Sennheiser HD5xx/HD650s are sooooo much more comfy, and they sound great too.

    Maybe he wants emphasized treble instead of rolled-off treble though.

    On the fence
    I will second the Sennheisers, especially for comfort. I have HD555s, and I'm not an audiophile, but I think they sound really good, especially for less than $100

    From experience i like the balance of the Grados as they can deliver amazing sound quality for any type of music.

    I know they can get uncomfortable if you wear them for a long while but I can't seem to find another pair of headphones that is up to par with this model.

    My original pair broke (S60) and that is why I am looking for one. Thanks for the advice though.

    I couldn't contradict you more. And there are absolutely no headphones that get better sound out of an iPod than the Grado SR60i.

    That's good that you know what you want; yea, Sennheisers are NOT the way you want to go, as indicated by the post above me. Rolled off treble coming from the energetic sound signature that the Grados have? You'd hate them.

    I always wanted a pair but I'd be limited in the places that I listen to music; e.g., the library.

    I purchased my SR-80's from JR audio (jr.com), at the time they were just slightly cheaper than any other price I could find. It looks though like the SR-80i's are inline with prices elsewhere, though.

    If you can afford the extra bucks for the 80's I would say they're very worth it.

    You may try at www.buyerwish.com. Go and request for the headphones you are looking for. Hopefully it would help you.
