Gift guide – Headphones
Grado's in-ear buds may be inescapably expensive, but so are rivals like the Shure SE535s. You certainly won't feel cheated with Grado's high-end efforts – especially given the company's reputation for excellence. An evolutionary improvement over their predecessors the GR8, the GR10s throw up subtle details in the low and high end, so pack a punch when it comes to bass and pay particular attention to percussion and string instruments. Impressively detailed, insightful and punchy, Grado's exceptional GR10s have been designed especially for the more discerning audiophile. Just looking at the oddly green exterior it’s hard to see, at first, where the money has gone. One listen is all it takes to find the answer.
