I'm sorry Grado. Ignore my username on this one.

Pros: Relatively cheap, comfortable pads.

Cons: Strong dip in the midrange frequencies, the SR80i sounds better for less.

I've own/owned every single pair of Grados except the PS1000's. In general, they're great. But the only ones to disappoint are the iGrados (which were a joke), and the SR125.    If you look at the freq. graph on headroom, there is a strong dip in the midrange near the 5KHz range, compared to, say, the SR80i or the SR225i. What the... Grado?   Midrange consequently ain't too great. I'm not saying these are horrible, just not the typical Grado sound you'd expect.

GLA55 looks like glass?) kicks their butt.    I've never heard such good bass from 3 inch midrange drivers that have to cover mid and bass frequencies. It's a 2.0 system without a subwoofer, but there is a subwoofer out option on the right speaker if you REALLY want more bass. I don't think that's necessary for 95% of people though. The 2 tweeters provide stunningly accurate highs without being sibilant at all, which is...
