Superb Sonic Performance, Surgical Precision, Elegant Design, and Durable Metal Housing Make the Grado SR325x Headphones True Champions
The SR325x has been engineered for music lovers who want headphones that sound spectacular, look great, and have excellent build quality, all at a reasonable price. The SR325x delivers superior sound, thanks, in part, to its fourth-generation Grado drivers. With its metal housing, the SR325x brings a surgical precision to your music that you won't find in other headphones in this price class. Furthermore, pristine imaging of the space between the instruments paints a clear picture of your music in a soundstage that is remarkably wide for headphones that are this lightweight.
Some of the marvels of a Grado driver are the clarity and range, revealing new notes and details in songs you may have heard hundreds of times. With superlative tonal balance, dynamics, imaging, and realism, the SR325x offers an extremely detailed presentation.
Specifically tuned for the SR325x, the new fourth-generation driver design features a more powerful magnetic circuit, a voice coil with decreased effective mass, and a reconfigured diaphragm. Reengineering these components for 44mm drivers improves efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.
Along with the speakers, the cables and headband have been redesigned for the SR325x. Housed in a more durable exterior, the now super-annealed copper 8-conductor cable reveals even more of your music with improved purity. The new leather headband features white stitching exclusive to the SR325x in the Prestige Series. The headphone is ultra-comfortable, encouraging you to enjoy long listening sessions.
Each SR325x is hand-assembled in Brooklyn. This headphone goes from workbench to workbench until it is ready for your ears.
And, like all Music Direct products, Grado SR325x Headphones come with the 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee.
"We [listened] to a wide range of music during our time with these Grados and they always please, if fed with a good enough signal. Regardless of whether it's the soul of Gladys Knight, the hard-edged tunes of Nirvana, or the hip-hop of Eminem, these headphones sound right at home.... These Grados once again prove that evolution is arguably a more reliable way of making things better than a headline-grabbing design revolution. The best just got that bit better."
—What Hi-Fi?, five-star review, 2022 Product of the Year Winner: Best Wired Headphones
"[The] most noticeable adjustment that's been made to the SR325x, for me, is in the way the top-end has been refined over the SR325e. The outgoing 'e' model was very much a master-class in providing unadulterated clarity, air, and sheen, so it's interesting that the SR325x has smoothed this over gently for a more linear transition from mid-range to treble, with a bit less 'shout' and a whisker less sparkle up top. I wouldn't go so far as to say that Grado has clipped the wings of the SR325 with the new 'x' model — far from it — but they have made a more all-around and approachable headphone while maintaining what makes it a technical and tonal delight.... [It] deserves a hearty recommendation...."
