Conclusion: I was so impressed with the Grado SR-56's that I didn't hesitate ordering the 125i's. Though I feel the 56's have better balance in the entire frequency spectrum and are the best headphones I've found in their price range, the 125i's stronger high end response and detailed, solid bass at double the...
Conclusion: These headphones have been nothing short of fantastic. Just like many of the other reviews will tell you, they are incredibly clear, detailed, full-bodied with a slightly forward sound, which is really live.
Excerpt: These headphones are quite good, and have really great highs. They are an improvement over the SR-80i, with a more balanced and bright sound with better articulation. For the money, they are quite good.
Pros: Very good mids and highs, crisp bass, good articulation, no distortion
Summary: I originally bought a pair of Grado GS1000e for £1000 but they arrived with a distorted earpad, I tried them out and the sound quality, in my humble opinion, was not worth the money so I returned them.
Summary: These are superb, they feel good to wear and give top qualty sound even at low volume. Its like listerning to a high quality hifi. My only complaint is that people around can hear your music. But don't let that put you off, even with the small jack pin attached the sound is great.
Summary: These are the best headphones you can get in this price range. Please note that these are designed to be used indoors only. In my opinion Grado needs to improve the physical design of their headphones. After having these for nearly 6 years they started disintegrating.
