The iGi and GR8 earphones are the first in-ear offerings from headphone-manufacturer extraordinaire Grado

Exciting news in the world of headphones, with the news of Grado's first ever in-ear offerings. Previously class-leaders in the world of on-ear cans, there are two new buds joining the Grado family.

The £88 iGi and the £295 GR8 earphones mark the company's first foray in to the in-ear market – and we'll be getting our hands on them very soon, so look out for the reviews.

Both the iGi and the GR8 are small, in-ear designs that aim for a tight seal with your ear canal for improved bass and to reduce outside noise.

Tony Jones, Product Manager for distributor Armour Home, said: "Whenever Grado Labs design new headphones, their primary goal is always to produce models which will be faithful to the music and provide listeners with a truly enjoyable sonic experience.

"The countless hours of design engineering and listening tests Grado has invested in the iGi and GR8 have clearly been worthwhile. Both models are simply outstanding."

More after the break

Well, we'll hopefully be the judges of this confidence very soon – and we'll of course let you know...
