Summary: I own
-Sennhieser HD 558 (Modded)
Of all, IMHO I find them the MOST detailed.I feel like i'm in a live performance in the front row seat especailly with .dsf or flac files. They are bright but after about a month of listening you do get used to it (I don't believe in burn in).
I would give this a 5 if it didnt torture me everytime i wear it xD... and if the bass would dig a little deeper.
Pros: With high quality music files can sound like live performance, Energetic, Fast Attacking, Warm mid-section
Cons: Very bright headphone, Does not dig very deep, Smaller soundstage than most @ Price range, COMFORT BLO
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.
Very solid headphones. The cable is nice and thick so I'm not scared of it breaking.
The solid metal earcups are a nice touch but are also a downside.
The headband is nice.
Pros: Unique sound signature that you don't really get with other offerings from other companies
Cons: Terribly uncomfortable. Ruined the experience.
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. I can say for myself that these through the years have become my reference and no other Grado headphone have been able to take their place for me - even though HF2 was pretty close.
The SR325 has a very forward, in-your-face sound.
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 may be off on the date but it should be close.
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.
What they do give you before break in with some source material is sonically smiler to diving naked into a 5 yard dumpster filled to the top with angry fire ants.
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. Now this was my very first grado headphone that I have ever purchased. Note, if you are looking for a headphone that does great with every genre these grado's are certainly not it.
Pros: Forward lively mids, gives that on stage presentation, Narrow sound stage
Summary: These were my first pair of good headphones, having previously only had Shure E2C in-ear phones that were anything better than the usual iPod earbuds that (I guess) most of us start with.
It was a nice surprise to listen to music with them at first - going through that process of re-discovering music again - now I can't listen to music on anything less, certainly can't bring myself to listen on the iPod ear-buds again.
I listen to a lot of music. Whether I’m working or relaxing I usually have some sort of music in the background. It relaxes me before bed or keeps me pumped up while working. It is essentially my mind altering drug of choice. Different headphones with different presentations an affect my mood in different ways and I though a ‘phone with pumped up treble like the SR325is would be good to keep my energy up when I was stuck with boring tasks at work.
Summary: A great set of 'phones for general music listening. Not terribly portable without a case, and can cause fatigue when listening to treble-heavy music due to very crisp reproduction.
You could use the cable on these babies to tow a car. Kind of impossible to deal with for on-the-go use, very oriented to seated listening.
I love my 325s!
Pros: Great sound, very clear bass, mids, and highs
Cons: Slightly fatiguing, uncomfortable if not properly adjusted
first class,these head phones exceeded my expectations

Summary: I rate these 4+stars-the sound quality when listening to classical music is second to non. My only criticism is the amount of sound that escapes the phones into the room can be an irritation to others.
