Summary: I love these headphones. They come with the 1/4" plug, so you will need to get an adaptor to play on an Ipod. It is harder to find an adapter for 1/4" to 1/8" at any of the mass-market electronic stores.
Summary: The sr225 is perhaps one of the better SR series in my opinion. I have heard all in the range and this one strikes a good balance between the relative harshness perceived by many in the SR325 and what I felt the slightly more congested sound of the SR60.
Summary: On my second pair, but only after I'd tried a pair of the 325i which I didn't like. Not overly bassed (yet plenty enough, and punchy), which unlike the 325's allows the midrange to breathe properly, the snare has attack and the whole thing has spaciousness.

OK there are quibbles: the finish could be better, the sterling price is steep compared to dollars (that's normal) but after becoming accustomed to the subtleties that these phones extract you feel...
