The Official Grado 325e Owners Club!
 
These are a Great low mid-tier Audiophile level headphones current pricing is $295.00 USD.
The headphones details directly from the Grado web-site:
Audio Specs:
Transducer Type: Dynamic
Operating Principle: Open Air
Frequency Response: 18 - 24,000 hz
SPL 1mW: 99.8 dB
Normal Impedance: 32 ohms
Driver Matched dB: .05 dB
 
My pair is less than a week old and I am more than happy with them, these will be my work on the go headphones for a  long time coming. I am very new to the forum and the headphone world so I'll let more experienced Headphone enthusiast handle a detailed review.
 
Since Grado does not make new series of headphones very often I figured why not have a forum for fans, owners, and potential owners to discuss these Great set of headphones. Also, the realistic side of things due to economics while we would all love to have a set of PS1000e's or GS1000e's the SR325e's are simply more accessible to a wider market thus should a have place of their own to reap praise and or even criticism on the SR325e.

FYI: I will say this vocals, instrumentals just soar out of these headphones like nothing I have except in the recording studio with can that cost 3 to 4 times as much.
 
This plays so damn nice even with YouTube quality as just an example.

I upgraded from some SR60i's to my 325e's over Christmas and I'm loving every minute of them.

I have changed the pads to my trusty TTVJ flats though, as I find they bring out more of the bass and I prefer them for comfort.

Why do you call them low middle? Going by cost, fidelity or some other criteria?


Cost the sound quality far out performs the price of these cans!!!

Hifi, midfi, low fi ought to be based on sound. Cost should not be a part of this classification. Too many times I see statements that indicate the writer' s conclusion that a headphone is better just because it costs more. My opinion, is that these certainly are not low fi, or low midfi.

Value on the other hand: should take cost into account

Hey guys, I have a question. I am a new owner of these wonderful cans, but unfortunately they are horribly uncomfortable for me. They hurt my ears so bad for so long after I take them off and after extended wear that I cannot enjoy them properly. Any suggestions of other grado cups that I could try? I don't want to ruin the sound for comfort though, which is why I would probably not use any replacement cups that are not from grado unless they came recommended from someone in this community that I would be inclined to trust to secure the wonderful listening experience.

You may try wearing the cups a bit forward/downward, instead of directly over your ears.
