325 has better bass , more detail.....some call it very bright, I did not find that to be the case with mine.

 

Better build quality.....L cushion, leather headband.

 

I definitely call it a better headphone, however some like the SR80 better.

 

It is tuff to say if it is worth the difference in price, as the SR80 is one of the best bang for your buck headphones that you can purchase, imo.

 

The higher you go up in the chain, you get less bang for your buck, but the sound is better, just not by leaps and bounds.....that being said, I just loved my 325i....a very detailed, in your face headphone.....fantastic cans for my genre, which is basically rock, blues.

Thanks for the reply, I figured this might be the case, the wonderful price of diminishing returns, but hey...if we're in it for audio money starts to become the last things on our minds. Must keep the Head-fi tradition going in fashion. Honestly, I don't think I'll upgrade just yet, it's a little soon, however I will be keeping my eye out for a pair of SR325i second hand when the price is right in the meantime.

With the SR325i what options do I have about the 6.3mm jack, which is no use to me, I want to use these with portable sources and portable amps that support 3.5mm input jacks. Do I gather people in my situation use an adapter, one in cable form? Or is having the jack re-terminated to 3.5mm a common thing?

If they're paying we can do this properly and go for PS1000. Get this done right immediately. ;)

If you want PS500 or RS1i cheaper I think you can check the SennGrados :)

Excellent, I've spotted them.

H20Fidelity...great idea you have about getting a 325 second hand....you can get it for around $200 second hand if you are at the right place at the right time :smile:

I have owned the SR60i, and have a pair of SR80 pinks. Have also owned the 325is (chrome) and have mucked about with the 225 and 225i as well as the Magnum X.

I regretted selling my 325is a lot...the build quality trumps all of the other Grados, and the sound was well worth the upgrade.

I used an adaptor, but it wouldn't be a bad thing to reterminate or recable. That's the only mod you will ever need on them, unlike the rest of the lineup smily_headphones1.gif.

Speaking of...why have I not gone back to them? The modding bug...

Loved those damn chromies!
