Pros Stunning performance,gives an openness closed back phones can only dream of!!
Cons Only price(In the uk)#160.00 retail.
Recommended it? Yes

I have been thinking about getting a new pair of cans for quite a while now and came across the Grado brand.

I read about various models SR60/80/125 and only a small percentage did'nt award top marks.

The negative points mainly concerned comfort/looks,i would have to say there... Read full review »

Grado SR-125 Headphones: High-End Sound for a Mid-Level Price

bysymbiosis Aug 10, 2005
41 Helpfuls 42 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Fast, accurate, revealing, do not require a headphone amplifier
Cons Expensive, uncomfortable over long periods of time, slightly bright, can be fatiguing.
Recommended it? Yes


I have long been a fan of headphones. I greatly enjoy listening to music. Sometimes, I need to listen to music. Many times, other people are sleeping or studying when I want to listen to music, so headphones are a must. Like many people, I started off listening to cheap Sony... Read full review »


Great cans, but not for everyone...

bypierredenis Mar 7, 2005
10 Helpfuls 11 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Great sound for the price.
Cons Not for long sessions. Cord only 6'.
Recommended it? Yes

Bought those recently as a final upgrade to my audio setup. They replace a pair of horrible Sony wireless (MDR RF 960R). I'll never buy wireless cans again : some things are meant to stay attached.
First, as the title suggests they are not for everyone. If you are fashion conscious (what a... Read full review »


Uncomfortable? Check the shape of your head...

byotowndrei Jan 5, 2005

Pros Everything except the Con.
Cons Need adapter for portable listening, but who in their right mind . . .
Recommended it? Yes

I'd like to clarify something; Grado Prestige Series headphones are, in my opinion, some of the most comfortable headphones on the market today. The tender foam caresses the ears, and the flexible soft-leather coated metal headband allows for a custom fit because IT CAN BE BENT - even to fit those... Read full review »


detail freaks, a bit too bright

Pros Mind-blowing amount of detail revealed
Cons Exagerated high frequencies
Recommended it? Yes

These were my first quality phones. The amount of detail revealed is flabbergasting. Normal studio monitors and proffesional headphones are like really clean crystals to look through, while the Grado phones are like quantum-effect microscopes, revealing tons and tons of details.
Unfortunately,... Read full review »


On stage with Grado.

Pros Clarity; A great upper register
Cons Best when used in a quiet room.
Recommended it? Yes

Other reviews here seem pretty accurate, but don't provide a context as to what kind of recording or performance was considered to be 'warm' or 'bass heavy' or have 'too much treble.'

I am a classical music lover and have listened to enough of my disks on my new Grados to know that the... Read full review »


For sale: One pair of Grado SR-125 headphones, CHEAP!

Pros Quality contruction, stout cables.
Cons Over-accentuated highs, short cable, very uncomfortable (read: a sandpaper vise for your...
Recommended it? No

At the time of this review, I'd been using my Grado SR-125 cans for just over a year, and just switched to a pair of Sennheiser HD-600s. The difference is like night and day; both in comfort and sound.

The Grado SR-125s exaggerate high-frequency sounds in a way that is quite to my... Read full review »

The opinions i read on the net where very helpful for me in choosing a pair of headphones, so this is payback time.

Recommended it? Yes

First off, I want to say that I'm not somebody who just bought these things and am scrambling to write a review about them; I've had these beauties for a while, and I'm finally buckling down to write about them. In fact, I have a pair of RS-1s on order, and will most likely write a review on them... Read full review »

Pros Lightweight,portable
Cons sound leakage
Recommended it? No

I was looking to upgrade my current headphones. I have been using a pair of Sony v6's for many years and since they were so old, I thought that there would be an improvement with something new. Well I may be in the minority here but I was not impressed at all with the Grado SR 125's. I found them... Read full review »

Pros Excellent sound
Cons Nothing! :)
Recommended it? Yes

There are no adjectives that can accurately describe the sound that this headphone produces. The sound is rich, balanced, and soft-- you feel like you can listen to it for hours without your ears getting tired.

The detail is outstanding. You can turn the volume barely halfway and you can... Read full review »


Excellent, with Reservations

5 Helpfuls 6 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Excellent sound for the price!
Cons Bass can be overbearing and interfere with midrange. Uncomfortable on ears after an hour.
Recommended it? Yes

It's a given that Grado cans, while not "street stylish" or hip in the looks department, offer the very best in price/performance and cost-effectiveness, especially in the $60 - $200 range.

Basically, the standard one should use when selecting between Grado cans is "how good is my... Read full review »


Grado delivers again

byprocsup Dec 9, 2000
4 Helpfuls 5 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Warm, consistently detailed presentation.
Cons High end harsh at times, bass can muddy at higher volumes.
Recommended it? Yes

Anyone who has listened to Grado's line of 'phones knows that they are a great way to completely sever yourself from the outside world for a short time. The 125's are no exception. They are extremely detailed for the price and can deliver a punch at almost any volume. The 125's feature good bass... Read full review »


Doctor come here quick, I think these things are alive!!!!

byTodd Nov 8, 2000
12 Helpfuls 13 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Good sound , good value
Cons need an adapter to use them portably:>(
Recommended it? Yes

The Grado 125 is the first in the Grado line that approaches true audiophile sound. It has better detail than the SR-60 or SR-80. The highs are much more realistic - not the sparkly highs of the lower cost units. Midrange is a bit recessed but dynamic and the bass is clean and tight.
The 125... Read full review »


A New Dimension

Pros Crystal clear, colorful sound reproduction. Work well with portable devices.
Cons Not good for noisy places. Slightly flat base.
Recommended it? Yes

I recently purchased the Grado-SR 125's and I have been grinning from ear to ear ever since. These are the "middle-of-the-road" headphones from Grado Labs, but the SR 125's are light years ahead of the high-end headphones you might find at a large electronics chain store. If you are used to... Read full review »

Hi Everyone!
Before you buy anything, I would recommend to try it first before you commit on buying them. Alright, lets get to the point! It took me at least a week to decide which headphone I really like to buy. Every single day I kept on going back to different local retail store of home... Read full review »
