Summary: AH! Grado. Sir John Grado.
How can we not love you? How can we not hate you?
You never sold your soul to the market and still construct your headphones in America, your quality is still the same as in 1990 when you begin to create your first marvelous headphones with your wife in a small workbench...
Pros: Elegant and detailed sound with syrupy mids and extended low, plenty of air and space in big soundstage, warm and inviting vocals
Cons: The cable will broke because of unstoppable twisting cups (predictable Grado downer), need amping for full spectrum result
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: 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: 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: 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: For the first few months every time I use my ears hurt because of the ear pads are really uncomfortable. But I still listen to them because they sound really good.
I always listened to rock, edm, and pop music. These types of music perform very well with the Sr325is.
Summary: Ok, this is my first review. However, I feel that my opinion matters as much as anyone elses. I'll start from the beginning. I have been creeping in here for quite a while and soaking up as much info as I can. I am not an audiophile, really just a person that enjoys music a lot and its a part of me.
Summary: The sound on these is absolutely stunning directly through the headphone jack. It may or may not benifit from an amp, all I know is that I have spent about 30-40 hours listening to Pink Floyd like a complete fool. Over, And over again, So I can tell you these headphones sound really, really, good.
Pros: The most open I have listened to, Energetic Fast Attacking, Mids, Detail,
Cons: Comfort, Treble response, sub-bass is lacking on some recordings
Summary: After 4 years of regular use, my cables were looking a little rugged, the plastic cover over the cables that split to each ear were cracking at the Y splitter . I called Grado and they quoted me $45 (includes return shipping)for a new cable plus an additional $15 to upgrade to the newest 8 conductor...
