Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"I've read Grado is popular among musicians, which I is one of am*Comfort will definitely vary among your ear and head size, keep this in mind - you might really like them and have no comfort issueUpdate: they broke literally 24 hrs after I initially wrote the reviewUp-Update: I emailed them, and they told me I could fix it myself no problem."
_
"thankfully its not obvious on all recordings, but my 2014 led zep II remaster is hard to listen to, but I realize that is what it is... sometimes I wonder if certain high frequencies are a little over pronounced or the response not as smooth as they might be in higher models, but that only shows up every now and then....some people complain about the comfort of the grado headphones."
_
"They are kind of flimsy to be honest and not really that comfortable for the price but I give them 5 stars confidently."
_
"The infamous drawback of the L-cushions is their comfort."
_
"After ordering all three items, then testing them extensively, I found the extra headband to be just the ticket to give me the comfort to be able to wear the Grados for more than 5 minutes."
_
"Really enjoying them, especially now that I have solved the comfort issue."
_
"I will not say they are bad, but they sound so good I am willing to fiddle with them every now and then to stay comfortable."
_
"Pros: Value, Mod-ability, SQCons: Comfort (maybe)Well here's the long and the short of it: the new 'e' version of the Grado SR325 is the best one yet."
_
"The sense of space is more accurate than previous iterations and the slightly wider headband has made them a bit more comfortable as well."

Music

Music:
"These headphones with the supposed Grado sound are great for all types of music, but really excel at folk, country, jazz and vocal-heavy tracks."
_
"I find them great with movies, video games, and all sorts of music."
_

"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."
_
"I bought the Magni 2 Uber Headphone Amplifier due to it's low price, good performance, and pre-amp outputs for my powered Bose speakers."
_
"I'm happy with the sound quality of these headphones, especially for the price when considering the competition."
_
"Very reasonable price for such a versatile (no amp is needed) hi-fi product."
_
"Don't get me wrong, the sr80s are a great pair cans for the price , but after going back and forth between the two headphones, the sr325e made the sr80's almost unlistenable."
_
"amazing product and design for the money."

Quality

Quality:
"I am not an audiophile, but I do enjoy high quality sound."
_
"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."
_
"Granted I have pretty high quality stereo speakers (B&W;), but I expected to hear a lot more of the music with these headphones."
_
"The build quality is not going to blow you away but they are nicely finished with metal mesh on the backs and embossed model name emblem in the center."
_
"For 25 years i believed that in order to have audiophile quality sound you needed a good home system and great SPEAKERS."
_
"I'm contemplating an external DAC but from my macbook the sound quality is very adequate."
_
"Five stars for high quality materials and exceptional sound."

Sound

Sound:
"But beware: these open-backed phones leak sound like a damaged boat leaks water, so the unfortunate person beside you will get almost as much of an earful as you."
_
"However if these are tamed down compared to the 325i out of the box, I can understand the complaints of the 325i sounding too hot."
_
"I am not an audiophile, but I do enjoy high quality sound."
_
"I tried the Leatherette cushions and they completely ruined the Grado sound and muddies everything terribly."
_
"Brilliant sound, but they weren't comfortable with my wide frame glasses"
_
"and this is coming from a guy who NEVER thought great audiophile sound could be had from headphones...until now."
_
"Seasonal bells and chimes never sound bright or hard-edged, just beautifully sharp and well imaged."
_
"Perfect time shopping, headphones liked the sound is perfect"
_
"I think even the material of the grills might affect their sound as putting my hands near the cups on the outside you can tell easily by the change in sound unlike my hd600's or any of my k7-- series."
_
"After deciding that I wanted the most accurate and neutral sound I could get for my budget, I narrowed my choices down and the Grados came out on top."
_
"These headphones with the supposed Grado sound are great for all types of music, but really excel at folk, country, jazz and vocal-heavy tracks."
