Grado Prestige Series SR325e: High-end headphones that deliver a clear and open sound

 

While they aren't for bass lovers, the SR325e headphones deliver very open, detailed sound that makes them exciting to listen to.

The sturdily built Grado Prestige Series SR325e headphones offer very clear, detailed sound and spacious stereo imaging thanks to the open-back design.

Some people may be fans of Grado's firm foam earpads -- but others may not be so enamored of their comfort level. No carrying case included.

Grado Prestige Series SR325e

 

Grado, which is based in Brooklyn, N.Y., and builds most of its products there, has not changed the iconic exterior design of the headphones and like its SR325 predecessors (the previous model was the SR325i), his model has the same firm, bowl-shaped...

Grado SR325e HEADPHONES

 

The Grado SR325 have good and open sound reproduction for critical listening. Unfortunately, they are subpar headphones for everyday use. They leak enough to be distracting to the people around you even at lower volumes and also will quickly fall off...

Good and open sound reproduction. ; Decent build quality.

Easily fall off your head. ; Poor noise isolation, by design.

Grado SR325e review

 

Best home on-ear headphones £200-£400, Awards 2016. The musical, detailed sound of the Grados makes them a truly top buy

Tonal balance ; Transparent across frequencies ; Expressive dynamics ; Good rhythmic drive ; Precise timing ; Fast, agile ; Rugged build ; Recent price drop

Nothing

Best home on-ear headphones £200-£400, Awards 2016. Remaining unbeaten at this price, these hugely revealing Grados are a compelling buy

Grado SR325e review

  (Rating Hidden)

Can these inconspicuous, no-frills headphones deliver top-quality sound? Or is the audio as stripped back as the design? We put them to the test to find out.

Pound for Pound, the Best Grado Out There

 

Well here's the long and the short of it: the new 'e' version of the Grado SR325 is the best one yet. And, IMHO it's the best Grado for the money. Here's why: I've listened to a lot of headphones. A lot a lot. More than anyone should. And as such, I've...

Exceptional clarity at all frequencies

 

These phones make my Bose QC25s sound muddy. The crystal clear upper mids and higher range is incredible on acoustic music, with enhanced intelligibility of vocals and clearer transients since the attack of percussion requires clarity at the top end....

Great sound, could be more comfortable

 

Top quality sound - able to handle big bass and more ambient sounds. The headphones are comfortable but could be more comfortable.
