”These open-backed headphones are the ones to beat at this level.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2022 Product of the Year.

Upgrade to metal

Unique within the Prestige range, the SR325x headphones use metal, rather than plastic housings. These help reduce resonance, giving you a clearer, more precise sound quality.

More consistent balance
With the handpicked drivers matched to just 0.05dB, the SR325x headphones sound more consistent and evenly balanced across the soundstage. When combined with the L Cushion design pads, you get a holographic sound stage with all the instruments surrounding you in ‘thin air’.

8-conductor cable
Using an 8-core cable, the SR325x makes the perfect connection. The cable also features super annealed copper wire for improved purity, making the sound even more lifelike.

Fourth generation, X Series driver
The fourth generation of SR325 gets the latest X Series drivers for reduced distortion and enhanced response. Tuned specifically for the SR325x, the combination of more powerful magnets and reduced voice coil mass helps improve the headphones' efficiency and speed of response. This not only reduces distortion but also improves the harmonic response, meaning the sound is closer to the original than ever.

New leather headband
Exclusive to the SR325x model, the headband is fashioned from luxurious leather and features unique stitching. Combined with the metal housings, it marks the SR325x out as something special within the already impressive Grado Prestige range.

Durable design
Always a durable design, the SR325x features an even tougher cable. Essential in a pair of headphones that are designed for music on the move, the high quality connection cable has a more durable exterior. Folding earpieces make the headphones easy to pack once you’ve arrived at your destination.

Hand-built in Brooklyn
Each pair of SR325x headphones is hand-built in Brooklyn. With a history that stretches right back to 1953, the company is still run by the Grado family, giving continuity to the product design and style. Evolution rather than revolution has kept the Grado headphones at the peak of their game and top of their class.

For Prestige at its best, take a listen to the Grado SR325x and prepare to be impressed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grado SR325X on ear headphones I bought these a short while ago and am very pleased with the sound quality. Stereo imaging, transparency and sound stage excellent for the price. However (there always is something) the comfort is not ideal. This is a compound of the less than cosseting foa.m on the ears plus the narrowish and unpadded headband. The latter can be addressed by somewhat expensive after market headband padding but the former is I understand more of a challenge as moving the ear to headphone distance adversely affects the sound quality. Hmmm. As with most plug in headphones, these sound far better than wireless ones (and are likely to last much better) but they do only come with a 2m lead and 3.5mm male plug (+ 6.25mm adaptor) so not great for most. I ended up buying the excellent Audiquest 5m extension lead to deal with this. In summary, if you listen for say an hour or so, then great, but if you want to site down with them on for an evening then you may be better served looking elsewhere. A shame as other than that they are great headphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from usual high quality product excellent sound, very revealing, so you do notice the production if its not great. not used them for long periods to decide whether the new ear-pads are mor comfortable or not. The cables are more substancial but also much stiffer, but may be more comfortable in time. still best headphones for accuracy and detail at this price. There is an issue with availability, but I was able to secure a pair from Nottingham store and they made purchase easy and dispatched them promptly

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very good sound, terrible cable and comfort I bought this about 9 months ago from the Exeter branch after reviewing alongside the Sennheiser HD560 and HiFiman Sundara. I thought I'd walk away with the Sundara after reading and listening to countless reviews however it just sounded so flat when compared to the Grado. The Grado had a sound slightly warm side of neutral with great bass and dynamism although it was the least comfortable of the 3 it was the exciting sound that won me over. I thought I would get used to the ear pads but couldn't listen to them for long so found some replacement pads which helped at the expense of some sonic capability. However, what completely drives me nuts is the appalling standard fixed cable which never seems to lose its memory. It may be very robust but can not easily be replaced although a reasonable proportion of owners have replaced the standard cable. I do not understand why the other reviews here do not mention the frustrating standard cable which for me spoils what is a 5 star sounding pair of headphones. I have had to buy a more comfortable headphone and chose the AKG DT900X which is a good match sonically but has earpads like down pillowcases in comparison and a choice of 2 detachable cables with no memory. The Grados rarely get used now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really impressed This is my first Grado purchase and a total impulse buy. I am very pleasantly surprised by the sound quality of these phones straight out of the box, crisp and clear with great separation. Add on super fast delivery, making this an excellent purchase. I am one very happy bunny.
