What are mushroom cups vs straight cups. They are just like the cups on my 225i but silver metal (or whatever it is) instead of black plastic.

If you have the 225i model, you have the beveled/mushroomed edges on the far outside of the ear cup, where as the 225 (non-i's) cups are flat.

 

SR225-Flat cup

SR225i-Beveled/Mushroom cup

Wow the ear zonk G-cush goes really well with the SR325is. Instrument separation is better and the sound is less packed together and more open. Bass has more width to it as well. I'm loving the detail, no headphone can ever beat the SR325is in this pricepoint for detail/musicality/sound quality. I think the SR325is are equal to the HIFIMAN HE-500's in terms of imaging but has a more upfront/musical sound to it. Badabababa I'm lovin' it :)

+1 to that man. EZ G's are great on my Chromies, the changes they make are definitely for the better. Not to mention a serious comfort upgrade.

OMG I forgot to mention the comfort! Yeah, it's so much better!

post #3173 of 3510

The SR325is are so good I'm starting to wonder what the RS1i's sound like. But I don't feel upgraditis seeping into my veins because the SR325is are that good!

Yeah, your next logical upgrade would be the RS1....I agree the 325i is a fantastic headphone, I loved mine when I had them

post #3176 of 3510

Yes the 325is's are awesome, and so are the RS1i's, I own them both, definitely your next upgrade choice.

All this talk bout the G's made me put mine on as well (haven't used them for a long time) and you're right they really sounds and feel great with the G's!

The Grado SR325is (w/G-cush)  is probably the most musical pair of headphones I've ever owned, defeating the Ultrasone Edition 8's and rivaling the HD800's in terms of musicality (not taking classical music into account). The sound is so engaging and the instruments are so lively. And there is so much space between instruments. Not much more I can ask for at $295; it's worth every penny. Listening to Trumpets of Jericho & Gates of Urizen by Bruce Dickinson and I am f%$#ing loving these headphones!!! The double bass and electric guitarzz!!!

Love my sr325is :)

 

In my decade of GAS and upgraditis, the one pair of headphones I have ALWAYS kept have been the sr325/sr325is. I like them even more than RS1is personally.

 

Mine are the goldies - S/N: 1951.

SR 325is

Just got new ones. Not polished metal, but metallic gray paint. Immediately replaced L-cush to yellow Senns 414 pads (soft & comfy). Started to burn-in. 

...can't wait no more please Lord help me :smile:
