”The musical, detailed sound of these Grado headphones makes them a truly top buy.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 award winner.

Improvements to the best

With a new driver and cable design now fitted to the 'e' model, distortion is lower and clarity is higher than ever before. Still featuring the metal housing from the previous version, resonant distortion is amongst the lowest in its class and certainly an improvement upon the already impressive lower Prestige models.

The finest Prestige sound
Although the sound quality is typically Grado, smooth and detailed, the SR325e offer by far the best frequency response of any Prestige headphone. Just take a look at the extended frequency response of 18 - 24,000 Hz and you'll see what we mean. Put simply, the SR325e goes lower and higher than any other Grado Prestige headphones. This means a more powerful bass and vivid treble response.

Robust comfort
Using densely padded earpieces and a broad headband, the SR325e's are more comfortable than they might at first appear. With swivel earpieces, they also fit snugly against your ears, as well as folding flat for ease of storage. The robust construction is tough enough to take on a daily commute while still offering long-term comfort.

Unique style
The unique retro style is quite unlike rivals' headphones. In the tradition of many of the best products, however, form follows function with nothing superfluous in the Grado's design.

If you like the Grado sonic signature but crave a more powerful, dynamic sound, then the SR325e's are simply the best Prestige model to date - and that's saying something!

Please note, early versions of this model were shipped by Grado in SR325iS boxes. SR325e models are identifiable by a red dot on the packaging and inside an earcup. Models without this mark or a clearly labelled SR325e package will be the older 'iS' version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neutral delivery, and detail in spades Having put at least 50 hours on this pair of headphones I now feel qualified to make a comment. These Grado 'phones are the bees knees if you like to hear music as it was recorded. They deliver a neutral sound - nothing overpowers anything else - and detail in spades; with the latter be prepared to hear things on recordings that you have never heard before. Contrary to some reviews I read online before auditioning, they do not fall off your head at the slightest movement. In fact, they fit well and are comfortable during long listening sessions. However (as no doubt noted elsewhere on here), they leak sound like there's no tomorrow; their design being open-backed. To me this is not a problem, but to others they may well hear (nearly) as much of the music as you do when in use. All-in-all these are superb headphones for serious, critical, listening, but they do need a few hours of use to start sounding their best. I would also suggest the use of a headphone amplifier to get the very best of what they are capable of. As per usual, the staff at Richer Sounds were knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommended and worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny These headphones are a revelation, with detail and a flat response being the order of the day. Revealing, to say the least, they allow good recordings to shine but present poor recordings as what they are: poor. Out of the box they are something special, and the more hours you put on them the better they sound. They won't be to everyone's taste if you like your music to be coloured by the equipment you are listening on, but for sheer listening pleasure you will hard-put to do better. Do yourself a favour and give these cans an audition. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great advice and very helpful demo in store I purchased something that was suggested by the staff that had not been on my radar at all and that I am completely delighted with. The Grado SR325E headphones are open back which for me iare much better in terms of comfort and sound quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Apprehensive at first at spending so much but I am really glad I did. These produce the best sound I've ever heard. I would recommend a dedicated amp though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic You pay for what you get. Nothing but great sound. No fancy box,no fancy finish,heck Grado don’t even advertise. But that sound is beautiful. Pair with a Dragonfly,don’t expect trashy overpowering base,then sit back and relax. The reason I’ve marked them down on value is because they are three times more expensive than the 80’s and they are also great headphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, detailed sound After comparison with AKG550s and Grado 80s there was only one choice. Very detailed presentation, needs top quality material as they will pick up the slightest distortions. Enough bass for me (mainly classical/choral material) and the top FR is as flat as it gets. I don't know why they are called On-ear: the 80s are, but these sit on your skull.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A worthwhile step up I already have a pair of SR125s at home and bought these for use in the flat I spend the week in. The SR 125s are excellent but these are a clear step up. Impeccable clarity is expected but they have a depth I find astonishing in headphones.
