The SR80x utilizes a 4 conductor connecting cable and the diaphragms are put through a special ‘de-stressing’ process in order to enhance inner detail, the result of which gives a more open stage. The new SR80x has an upgraded driver design, and they have enlarged and improved the mass distribution in the plastic housing. The way the SR80e’s new driver and plastic housing move air and react to sound vibrations are now less affected by transient distortions. The SR80x provides an improved bass resonance, which enhances the overall detail. The Sr80x will produce a sound that is pure Grado, warm harmonic color, rich full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics and an ultra smooth top end.
