According to Needle Doctor:

Whether you are a budding audiophile or a serious enthusiast in need of a mobile solution, the following package is for you. The Audioquest Dragonfly and Grado SR80s are not only Needle Doctor staff favorites individually, but they work great as a pair.

The versatile Audioquest Dragonfly is first a high quality USB DAC capable of decoding up to 24bit/96kHz digital files of any format. It is also an adept headphone amplifier which will make your new Grado headphones sing with warmth and body. Just plug one end of the Dragonfly into the USB port of your laptop (or desktop) computer, and the SR80s into the other, and you will breathe new life in to your digital music collection or any streaming online content.

Don't forget that you can also integrate the Dragonfly with your home hi-fi system. Simply connect the 3.5mm output with a nice mini-to-RCA cable to an open line-level input, and enjoy the increased clarity in your main system.

I've owned Grado SR40 and SR60i headphones, but alas, both pairs are now damaged due to travel wear and tear. I could really use those SR80is!!!

The D-Fly is a great piece of kit and Grado makes some nice, distinctive-sounding 'phones!  I hope whoever wins this enjoys them! (and here's hoping that "whoever" is me...)

I just happen to be in the market for a new DAC/headphone amp; I've already got the SR80's, which are undeniably the best bargain in headphones (more so than even the much-praised SR60's). When I win (!!), I shall gift a friend with my current rig so it's a win-win ;)

What's the fancy word combo that I need to insert here to be selected? Is there a trigger word or phrase that will be searched for? I'll list every word in every language if that's the case. 

Larscis's picture

It took a while for someone to turn me on to Grado after being a Sennheiser fanboy for so long.  This just makes it better.

mrobin425's picture

A great combination that would sound wonderful together.
