Yeah, if you can get the beyer pads at an OK price I'd say it's worth a try.

It has been a while that I listened to my SR325i but tonight I listened to the Throwing Muses. Wow, what great headphones these are... Somehow I always come back to them. I know other headphones are technically more sophisticated but the SR325i they just fit for my ears... and cause a big smile on my face....

GRADO never have and never will be at the forefront of audio engineering...but they just do what they do....and do it in a special way...

That is what it is all about, and I very much agree...they are incredible headphones

After years of discomfort and hit and miss solutions with my 325is I've finally hit the sweet spot both sonically and comfort wise:



I've attached a HD650 headband and the new HM5 velour pads (the same way I attached the Beyerdynamic pads a couple of pages back in this thread).

It's now one of, if not the, most comfortable headphone that I own.

Sound wise the soundstage is the biggest I've achieved with any pads and the sound is fuller and smoother than ever without giving up any of the fantastic clarity.

I seriously doubt I'll continue to mess around with them any more now smily_headphones1.gif

Edit: also subbass is just great, Lorde really rocks now!

Edit2: really should replace the cable also, just don't know if I dare since I've never done it before.......
