Fast and attacking

Grado SR325is Headphone Review


With hybrid headphones all the rage, what happens if you choose something more bespoke like the Grado SR325i?

Airy, open and refined performance ; Great build ; Usefully sensitive

Cord is too short ; Leak huge amounts of noise ; Not as comfy as some rivals

The hybrid headphone market is an important sector for manufacturers with many different designs now on sale. Where sound market thinking meets reality is harder to judge however. I spend less time in London than I used to so I don’t know just how many...

My favorite headphone for a long time


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...

Full of enery

Good Headphone, No BS


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...

The most open I have listened to, Energetic Fast Attacking, Mids, Detail,

Comfort, Treble response, sub-bass is lacking on some recordings

Grado SR325is


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...

Brilliant sound, but some real design issues.


When I first got these the sound was rather tinny, but over the initial 50 hours they really, really opened up and grew to have a very natural sound. I have them paired with an HRT MS2+ and a Schiit Asgard, which is apparently a good match for Grados....

Bright, lively, good separation of ranges

Uncomfortable pads and headband, design flaw on cup holder, heavy

Old school look but a cutting edge sound.


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 -...
