The SR80-E is a pair of on-ear headphones with a fun sound. Highs are pronounced and come with a lot of detail, mids are slightly recessed and bass is boosted.
The open design also gives these headphones a fairly wide sound stage. However, this also means that a lot of sound can leak from them.
Pro Fun sounding with extended bass and highs along with warm mids
The highs are quite forward which brings out a lot of detail from the music. The mids, while not upfront, have nice presence and body to the music. The bass has good impact and is well-defined.
The SR80e works best for rock, country or live music, but can also perform well for classical music, EDM and similar genres.
Pro Open back design results in good sound stage
Th ear cups sport an open-back design, with mesh as the only covering on the driver. This gives a good sound stage which, while not very wide, is enough to give a feeling that the sound is coming from some distance away instead of just from beside your ears. This gives the music a more natural feel.
