If you bought them used together with flat pads, or bought the revised SR80i version,
then you're right. Hope you enjoy them anyways, they're great phones, I've enjoyed them so much that I've got two pairs at the moment, one modded and one stock.
Well I bought them (barely) used off of a fellow H-Fi'er and he actually never took pics of the inside of the cans, just the outside and the packaging. We will find out tomorrow I guess!

If they are the same as the SR80s I will have to look into having them re-padded.

You've got the SR80 at hand now?

Do the pads look like this (bowls),


or like this (flats)?

Option #2.

Option 2 are actually called comfies, not flats.

No biggie. It's just that these are flat pads: Grado Flat Pads - $35.00 : TTVJ, Todd The Vinyl Junkie

So I enjoyed the SR-225 a few years ago but sold them. Just bought another pair and once they burned in (made a difference on these cans) it made me realize just how boring my Sennheiser HD600 is. The SR-225 isn't much to look at but it makes some great music. They are a lot of fun to listen to.

The SR225 are a very good pair of cans. I'm definitely of the mind that the 325i is a better all-around headphone, but these are very very close, more comfortable because they dont weigh as much, and are quite a bit cheaper. IMO this is the best bang for the buck in the grado lineup.

I'm since 3 days an official owner of the SR225i , love them every single time i put them on . Got probably around 10 hours on them now , probably here and there the sound will change after a couple of hours more but man i do love them allready . I just put everything on them , no matter what , they do sound fantastic . Probably the Senn 595 or 600 is better in some areas but in general these sound so much fun , never harsh ( which i was very afraid for ) and plenty of bass , even more then i wanted .

Plenty of Bass?

Really, I just returned my set of SR225i headphones for the opposite reason. I found the bass really lacking. I've upgraded to the SR325is headphones and can say that they are quite a bit better (especially on the low end)!

Weel , the amping makes a big difference on these phones ( maybe on all of them ) and on my laptop they are bassheavy . Which is by far the least audiophile ( ugly word ) in my equipment . I had a brief listening on my sony receiver and they seam to have less bass there or at least less warm . going to try them on all my equipment and then maybe buy a HP amp starting with the cheapest of cheapest because it works very well on my laptop ( a bit to bassheavy and warm there but great fun ) .

Nope , flat as flat can be . Before EQing something i try to enjoy the sound by itself , when the sounds isn't good enough then i EQ it .

True amping does make a difference, but my comparison between the 225i and 325is was with the same setup (apples to apples comparison).

My setup: iPOD Classic 160Gb - Line out with Sendstation - RA1 Amp - Grado Headphones

I am now looking into an external DAC for my PC to go with my setup.

Anyone have any good suggestions?

Thanks

It was a sunny day today, and I thought I'd like to share something that recently completed with you all
