Summary: For the price I paid for a pair of headphones, the sound is excellent. No complaints as far as that's concerned. My only problem with these cans is the comfort. It took about a week to feel somewhat comfortable. The foam cushions rest directly on your ears as opposed to my Sennheiser pair that have a hollowed out area that go around the ears. a lot more comfortable. I have listened to the Grados for hours at a time so maybe I'm nitpicking a bit.
Pros: Sound is excellent, price.
Cons: As mentioned in the review, could be more comfortable to wear.
Summary: The Grado SR-225 is every bit an upgrade to the Grado SR-80 Everything the 80 does the 225 does even better. There is a bit more detail. A good deal more bass. The separation of the instruments is just something to behold. These headphones are more balanced than it's little brother. The soundstage is sinful. It's like you're on a small stage with the musicians. You can directionally place everyone in the band. It's funny how quickly you can adapt to incredible sound.
Summary: Not a bad pair of headphones, but the SR225 is noticeably better. The bass is decent, mids have a "hardness" to them and sound unclear, and highs are typically Grado bright. The SR225 has a smoother and more exciting sound IMO.
Summary: Har ett par Alessandro MS-1, vars ljudbild är väldigt lik sr125, dock har MS-1 lite högre frekvensomfång. Väldigt klart och öppet ljud med riktigt bra dynamik. Har lyssnat på många hörlurar från AKG, Sennheiser och BeyerDynamics, men tyckte att Grado hade finast klang. P.S Om ni har tänkt använda hörlurarna till mp3 spelaren-tänk om lite. De är väldigt öppna, folk kommer höra klart och tydligt vad ni lyssnar på.
