  • Summary: Presentation: Upon initial receipt of these headphones, you immediately feel as though Marty has made them especially for you – because he did. Marty of Martin Custom Audio does do lines of headphone modifications, but in small quantities and your item, such as this pair of SR-325i Grados is just...
  • Pros: Top-Notch Quality, Excellent Sound and Wonderful Fit
  • Cons: One almost might feel guilty about using these fine headphones on a daily basis. Maybe, specifically for special listening sessions?

  • Summary: I can not find any headphone similar to the SR-325. They are very different from all other headphones I have heard and also from the rest of the Grado line. You either love them or hate them.
  • Pros: Punchy bass, sparkling treble and very forward mids. Crystal clear sounding headhones appealing to those who love a very "in-your-face" sounding can..
  • Cons: Grado wearing comfort. Heavy and clunky. Cables could be better and more sturdy.

  • Summary: I had the pleasure of living in Toronto for 4 years and bought these at the excellent Bay Bloor Radio. BBR have a wall of headphones all fed by the same source, so I spent a few happy hours there on a quiet Monday night armed with a few favourite CDs.
  • Pros: Phenomenal SQ, like no other headphones I have heard
  • Cons: For me personally, a bit heavy and uncomfortable in long listening sessions

  • Summary: The Grado SR-225i was my first real pair of "audiophile" headphones and I loved them to death. In a foolish fit last month, I traded them away. After trader's regret set in I found a pair of goldie 325is that had been modded with detachable cables and screw fasteners to keep the headphones from...
  • Pros: Best sound and definitely worth upgrading from the 225is
  • Cons: slight slippage in the fit when I wear them for an extended period

  • Summary: These were my third pair of headphones, after the AT ES7 and Shure SE 530. I kept reading about how they had really hot treble, and sounded really unique and would be the opposite of the HD650( which would've been the logical upgrade from the 530 in terms of sound signature).
  • Pros: Great treble, impactful, unique sounding bass, BEAUTIFUL mids, great construction and aesthetics, swivel cups
  • Cons: SOMETIMES can be uncomfortable, bass could go a little deeper at times

  • Summary: I decided to write this review because I have done some research and it turns out there isn't that many reviews on this particular headphone.The majority of the music I listen to is alternative, rock, classic rock, Sinatra mostly mid centric music.
  • Pros: Forward lively mids, gives that on stage presentation, Narrow sound stage
  • Cons: Can sound overly harsh, lacking in bass

  • Summary: I had these for a few months before I sold it because they became unbearable to use. I tried the bowl pads and that helped with comfort but the sound became a nightmare for an audiophile so I will refrain from discussing that here. Build quality: Very solid headphones.
  • Pros: Unique sound signature that you don't really get with other offerings from other companies
  • Cons: Terribly uncomfortable. Ruined the experience.

  • Summary: I may be off on the date but it should be close. SN#7405 :REVIEWED After owning the SR80 for a few years I thought the Grado 325i would just give you more of the same sound as the loved 80,they do not.
  • Pros: Nice looking,solid construction,timeless styleing
  • Cons: sonics are bright and they are unforgiveing of poor recordings

  • Summary: Was not happy with the 325i. Very bright sounding through most of my musical catalog. Sounded very detailed at low volume. Bass response was surprisingly deep. Very forward sound signature. Good headphone for metal and very fast. Comfort is terrible.
  • Pros: detailed highs, people ask questions while wearing
  • Cons: BRIGHT, muddy, uncomfrtable

  • Summary: My first set of "premium" cans were the Grado SR80's, driven from an old classic iPod. As you can expect, I was blown away by the sound quality compared to those little white earbuds.
  • Pros: buttery mids, energetic highs, punchy bass
  • Cons: long-term comfort
