_
"I assume that the more expensive lines (Prestige, Reference, Pro) look and feel more pro-crafted, with better materials, but as I said, the important thing: audio, is just great with this pair of headphones."
_
"I love my Audio Technica and my B&W; headphones as well, but after somebody walked away with my old Grado 125s at work, I decided to try the new 'e' series."

Music

Music:
"these are totally open cans so if you listen to loud music in an open office they're not the best choice."
_
"Obviously the detailed, layered nuances of texture and energy are great for music like folk rock and grunge, I've noticed that I really, really enjoy listening to electronic music, even things like ambient drone, because the phones catch and extract the details and textures in everything."
_
"The best description of the sound I can come up with is that the the music is full of life."
_
"Before this I have used Sennheiser HD280 pros for music making, and they are nice (I'd say the bass response of the senni's is tighter) but I couldn't have them on for long, the space under the cans always felt 'cramped.'"
_
"Live music is just great in these."

Price

Price:
"The only drawback is the thick cabling, but that's a small price to pay for such a depth of sound."
_
"They have this retro, straightforward, somewhat flimsy, cheap look that isn't helped by the simplicity of the box that it arrives in."
_
"I relied on data from my research for the following differences: SR-60 vs SR-80, SR325 vs RS2, RS2 vs RS1.SR-60 - entry levelSR-80 - improved bassSR-125 - improved separation of horizontal sounds with a wider soundstage, more intimate soundstageSR-225 - improved reproduction of space with a deeper soundstage, more intimate soundstageSR-325 - improved look and feel, punchier bassRS-2 - improved accuracy (warmer) with a smooth top endRS-1 - improved look and feel, deeper and more intimate soundstage-Prestige Buying Recommendations-The SR-80 sounds really good for its price, but if you want a taste of the detail you've been missing without spending too much money, try the SR-125."
_
"Best sounding headphones I have ever had, and they are at a great price; really they are a steal! "
_
"Consumer reports rated these a best value for the money and I have to agree."
_
"They were more money than either of the other 2, but I am very happy with the performance for the dollar."
_
"Overall these headphones are nothing short of amazing given the price."
_
"highly recommended by consumer reports and they doo live up to that recommendation at a reasonable price"

Quality

Quality:
"do your research, but wouldn't recommend these due to too much $$$$$$ for the quality"
_
"Each time, I confused bass with power and quality."
_
"However, their sound quality is closer to, but not as good as the SR-80.SR-125e vs SR-225e===============The SR-225 comes with L-cushions instead of the S-cushions that come with the SR-125."
_
"Great headphones, the material and sound quality is excellent."
_
"I hope the durability of the SR225e lives up to hype as well and I can obtain at least 2-5 years of quality listening time."
_
"Sound quality: 10+ 10Construction: 7 10Design: 6 10Comfort: 8 10"
_
"There may be more comfortable headphones but nothing compares to the sound quality of the SR225e in this price range."
_
"However now, after ensuring several hours a day of prudently intermittent burn in on my Galaxy phone even 320kbps usually sounds better pretty acceptable, as the sound quality 'opens' up."

Sound

Sound:
"not as good as some other headphones that are half the cost with a better sound."
_
"The warmer sound tonality isn't something I appreciate very often, but it has its uses especially for bass-lovers."
_
"They also aren't made to be enjoyed in a noisy environment since sound leaks into your listening session."
_
"Can't wait to hear what they sound like when broken in."
_
"These headphones were recently top rated by Consumer Reports, but do not sound as good as my old beat up $30 Sony headphones based on listening to several selections of music."
_
"Good sound, and well made - uncomfortable though, they clamp my ears pretty tightly and are not pleasant to wear for much longer than a few minutes sadly."
_
"Comfortable, very good sounding, and well made."
_
"This is not a deal breaker, and it's more than compensated for by the excellent sound."
_
"I've never heard headphones sound so good."
_
"Best sounding headphones I have ever had, and they are at a great price; really they are a steal! "
_
"They sound phenomenal."
