**SOLD**

Asking $SOLD including shipping to the continental US.
These 225’s are several years old, but I just put new pads from Grado on them. I am the original owner. The 7-foot stock cable is terminated in ¼ inch. They have hardly been used at all. I am shrinking my collection of headphones from five pair down to one (check feedback), and these are the last to go.
The only sign of wear is where the silver on the letter ‘S’ in ‘PRESTIGE’ has partially worn off the left ear. They sound as good as new.

Just curious, but isn't the SR-225 supposed to have a silver metal grill/air intake? Based on the plastic screen of these headphones, the best they can likely be is the SR-125 with switched buttons. Apologies in advance if I am missing something here...

Wow, either you downgraded the 225's with a plastic grill, or you're trying to scam the HF community. Good job (and the super-cheap price only makes us more suspicious).

But then, at least you're not one of those people who are selling their HF-2's for a profit.

I apologize if I'm mistaken... but I'm pretty sure that I'm not.

Um, just being Devil's advocate, but there are certainly plausible reasons that it would have a plastic grill. I'm no expert on Grado's but he said they're several years old. Did the SR225 always come with a metal grill? And maybe he upgraded another, lower model pair with the mesh from the 225 then just swapped them over.

But in all honestly, this is pretty fishy.

EDIT: He also mentions the stock cable being reterminated in 1/4", I know that the old SR225's at least had 1/4" plugs stock.

According to this article it would seem the SR225 did come with a plastic shell (if the new ones use metal this does look to be a change in design by Grado).

dweaver, i'm pretty sure that the 225 pictured has a metal mesh screen, thus improving the air-flow. it is definitely a black metal mesh screen and not what we see here in the initial FS post which is a single piece of black perforated plastic.

I might be the lucky one to grab these off OP. So i guess older issues were made with plastic grill? I thought the one of the reason for the sound of SR225 is due to its metal grill. Any ideas?

My apologies to the OP! Thanks for teaching me something I did not know about the SR-225 line. *Free BUMP*
