    MY TAKE:

    The SR 325is heaphones offer a vibrant and alive midrange with great dynamics. - Galen Carol


    The Top of the Range Prestige Series Headphone. The new SR325e has a new driver and cable design. The added mass from the metal housing minimizes transient distortions. With the new 8 conductor cable design you will notice superb control and stability of the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum, with both supporting Grado's world renowned midrange. The SR325e will produce a sound that is pure Grado, with warm harmonic colors, rich full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics, and an ultra-smooth top end.


    Grado e-Series Headphone Features:
     

    • Every single component, surface, and material used in the e Series has been upgraded and optimized for one purpose - outstanding dynamics and fidelity.
    • Grado's proprietary SpaceBlack Polycarbonate is engineered to absorb excess energy and reduce secondary impulses, for a clearer tone.
    • The e Series method of curing our select Mahogany tone-woods enhances their natural ability to reduce sound coloration and produce consistent results.
    • Rhodium, the most expensive precious metal on earth, is employed to prevent corrosion on connectors, and unwanted graininess in your music.
    • More than 60 years of Grado Labs expertise have led us to develop the most refined driver geometry in our history, which tracks music frequencies with unequaled precision. 
    • Design refinements within the housing prevent stray resonance from interacting with the driver, thus protecting the purity of reproduction.
    • The magnetic field has been fine-tuned for symmetry throughout the full range of the voice coil.
    • Even the glue is new, optimized for greater strength, less mass, and better reliability.


    For over 50 years, Grado has been manufacturing some of the World’s great phono cartridges. One of the oldest family owned companies in the audio industry, Grado have been the leaders in design engineering for the high-end audio and recording industries.

    Holder of 48 patents, company founder, Joseph Grado is credited as the inventor of the stereo moving coil phono cartridge. He is responsible for more innovations in phono cartridge design than any other person in our lifetime and was inducted into the Audio Hall of Fame in 1982.


    Time honored manufacturing know how and painstaking attention to design detail result in previously unattained levels of pitch control, harmonic accuracy and bass quality to be achieved. All Grado headphones and cartridges are handmade to Grado's full performance specifications... nothing leaves the factory unless it sounds pure Grado.


    REVIEWS:
     

    “Best home on-ear headphones £150-£300, Awards 2015. The musical, detailed sound of the Grados makes them a truly top buy. Wonderfully musical, Detailed, orderly presentation, Fluid dynamics, Sturdy build. - What HiFi


    Grado headphones don't tend to garner headlines like flashier competitors such as Beats and Bose, but the company has been making consistently great-sounding headphones for decades out of the same family-run shop in Brooklyn, N.Y. While some lower-priced Grado headphones have been in our ratings for several years—including the Prestige SR60i ($79) and SR80i ($99), recommended models that are both CR Best Buys—we recently bought the pricier $300 Prestige SR325is ($295) over-ear model and put it through our battery of tests. The result: It's now our top-rated headphone, with an overall score higher than any Beats by Dr. Dre or Bose model in our ratings, though headphones from both those companies have done well. – Consumer Reports
     

    “Perhaps the best on a ‘performance-per-pound’ basis. Offering the kind of open, detailed, dynamic and rich sound that many rivals twice the price can’t match, they’re truly stunning.” - What Hi-Fi, Five Stars Rating
