I love my SR225i's. They give me an experience that other headphones simply do not give me. The soundstage is pretty much like being on a sound stage, and the mids are to die for, especially on heavy guitar-rock. Sure, my HE-5LE's are better overall, but Grado's are simply fun, open to a lot of modification, and very easy to drive. It is true that I almost sold them a week after I bought them, but after adjusting the clamp tension, learning that they were designed for moderate volume, and experimenting with the best position on my ears, they are my go-to headphone.
Yep. I still have mine for the same reason.
