Grado SR225i review

 

Grado Labs' headphones have been audiophile favorites for decades. The company rarely introduces new models, but it recently upgraded its entire headphone line, adding an "i" to the model number to denote "improved." The new models look almost exactly...

Highly dynamic and detailed sound; long-term factory service and support; unique retro design.

Not the most comfortable design; large 6.3mm plug requires adapter (not included) to interface with portable audio sources; open-backed design lets in external sound.

Grado's audiophile-friendly SR225i headphones deliver stellar sound quality, though some design caveats may limit their appeal for on-the-go listening.

Grado SR-225i

 

Detailed and clear sound. Comfortable for shorter periods. Short burning.

The pads do get a little uncomfortable after a couple of hours usage.

Great headphones but best to change the foam covers

 

This is for original SR225, not SR225i I have owned both the improved and original versions. In my view the SR225 is better sounding than the so called Improved version, despite marketing claim about increased airflow by 50%, I smell marketing BS The...

Sound quality, balanced natural bass ( not overblown ), engaging mid-range

Original foam cushion is uncomfortable

Grado SR225i On-EarHeadphones

 

Eventually the upper-mids and treble became too much to bear. At first blush they sounded great, but then they wore on me. They also became very uncomfortable after 30 minutes or so. You need to sit with them for a while and experience the fit before...
