Can you elaborate on why the cables are not very good? Are you just talking about the feel?

It's so much stiffer than the older cables, I absolutely hated it, my 325x was pretty much forever tangled on the right side above the split. Not to mention they decided to make the y split even larger for whatever reason.

Screw this wait for a comparison review of x series grados. I don't think it's happening soon and there is only one grado 325x left in the country (Philippines). Bang! Trigger pulled, take that lol

You would glad you took the trigger. This headphone really rocks! Forward, punchy (real punch!), dense, high pace, with surprisingly wide soundstage compare to typical Grado's soundstage (Apart from GS series and PS1k/2k).

Has anyone done a sr225x vs sr325x comparo yet? That would be great if whoever has compared them can post their thoughts.
I'd buy the entire Prestige X lineup myself as a curiosity if i had a couple of headphone buddies to do the comparison together.

I've always felt that headphone reviews by one person can be quite misleading. The problem with a singular thought is that some people prefer sound signatures that are darker or brighter than neutral, and their reviews will reflect that. Consider that quite a few people in here loved the Hemp with its stock pads, but I thought the sound just wasn't for me. My Hemp has been in its box for months, barely used, and I'll probably sell it soon.

However, the SR225x weighs significantly less than the SR325x, so if you think long-term comfort may be an issue at all, go for the SR225x. I've never had an affinity for the metal models because the "upgrade" is a lighter wooden model.

Does anyone know if the E&J Coogi is based on the earlier black headband RS1e or the later brown headband RS1e? Because I am loving mine and I'm probably in the minority here who likes the RS1e a lot better than the RS2e, and I read that people generally prefer the later RS1e than the earlier one.

Help! I am bought a original RS1 and I love it so much that I am thinking about buying a GS1000i. I had before a PS2000e but it was the biggest letdown for me…it had no bass at all! Nothing, null, zero, nada…(it was driven by a Pathos Inpol Ear, so I do not think amplification was a problem). I listen to a lot of electronic music (but the quirky one, like FKA Twigs), funk, alternative, indie and almost no jazz/classical.

Please say, that the GS1000i is also perfect for classical, jazz, etc and they are not for me at all…thanks.

I really think the Hemps would suit you well for those kinds of genres 🙂 or even the 325x without spending as much as a GS series. I did have the opportunity to listen to the GS3000e, which was really great. However I do think the Hemps are the best "value" without going into kilobuck territory. 👍

To be honest I have the Hemp, the RS2e, the HP2i and a classic RS1. No plastic or G Pad thing

Been away for a few weeks, just tried to quickly catch up on 1k posts (if that's possible?!) to see what folks think of the new 325x against the Hemp? I'm intrigued, but the retailer that has a pair also has a pair of GH2 at much the same price, which changes everything. Still loving Hemps on Geekria LL pads, but I'm trying not to overuse them, and revert back to my 325e for daily / casual listening. Was about to try the 325x, but that cocobolo....not sure what to do now.
