These are wonderful headphones. I use Denon Cd and Amplifier using Denonlink which offers pristine loss less transmission.
You soon develop a technique to balance these phones on your head and avoid the weight becoming the problem cited in so many reviews.
Bass is registered at far lower frequency than I have heard through other headphones, instruments precisely located .. Listening to Michael Jackson's 'Bad' is like having a scalpel applied to your eardrum..you get accustomed to it, but listening through any other medium becomes pointless , so be warned..easily matches the Sennheiser Orpheus and they cost over £10,000
The UK distributor for Grado headphones is Armour Home. I suggest you contact them and they'll be able to put you in touch with your nearest dealer:
The least practical headphones you can buy, but still faultless for their sound quality.
I wrap a thin scarf around my head, so they become comfortable enough to wear. You could argue you'd only use them for the length of an album, but I would use them for so much more if they weren't so heavy. Ok, well I do. No, I don't consider it a crime to use these to play Deadspace. It was midnight.
Another let down is that the sheer weight of the cans cause the headband adjustment to slip & requires a additional adjustments during use.
I only say let down because Grado used to use metal screws to fasten and secure the height of the cans, only for their top-of-the-line gear. These would have been more than ideal, as my Left ear can seems to drop loose more so than the Right.
I could use some tape, but on a pair of Grados this expensive?! No chance. The plastic L&R clasp seems to be the only weak link. It seems to be exactly the same as used for the plastic Grados, not that I've done a side-by-side comparison with my SR60s.
Andy, thanks! Tried them, talked to the retailer they recommended. Delivery time takes about a month but I guess that's the best they can do
Would you say these headphones are better than the Beyerdynamic's T1 in terms of sound quality?
Where do I audition one of these? Are they being sold in the UK already or not yet? The internet info seems confusing.

It has its drawbacks, but this Panasonic is easy to live with and has an insightful and dynamic picture performance – it’s a great set
The AVR-X2000 brings Denon back to the AV receiver top table in this ultra-competitive price category
A decent, affordable effort from Otone but sound quality is tainted by a distracting brightness
