@olsenn I think you disliked the sr325i because of the brightness. They are very detailed and have lots of clarity, but the treble is just piercing for some people so I can see why you disliked it lol. thanks for the help.
I have heard that argument alot actually, and it is entirely possible I just got a bad sets of cans fro Grado; however, if you've never heard Grado headphones before I'd highly recommend you not assume you know how they're going to sound. I'm not trying to be rude, it's just that that is what led me to waste $400... I thought I new what they would sound like, but I was mistaken. The truth is, that these cans (325is) are not very detailed at all! They make trick some people into thinking that based on how bright they are in the upper frequencies, but they are completely absent of bass and they aren't linear at any point in the frequency spectrum. Once you listen to a full-bodied pair of headphones you'll realize that that the grados don't show much detail at all.
I can't say for sure that wouldn't like Grado headphones; I am only saying that I highly recommend you audition a pair somewhere before commiting to buy them. Even people who love Grado headphones admit that you either love them or hate them, and that they are only good for certain types/genres of music. Unless you know what type of sound you like (don't even assume you will like them because you like Rock) I would recommend going for a more all-rounder that can be tweaked with SW equalization to sound more like a Grado if you wish it to.
Whatever pair of headphones you do ultimately purchase, I hope you let us know your impressions of them. Best wishes
