3.0 out of 5 stars Great Sound. But Fell Apart, June 18, 2007
It's likely you've read the rave reviews saying these headphones sound terrific for the money. Well, It's true. The highs and mids are brought out wonderfully, crisp and defined. The bass, while not very strong, balances well with the rest of the frequency range.

On the bad side is that these headphones are not very stylish (i.e., not much to look at). But with Grado it has always been about sound first. Let me also say that the comfort level is not great, but after a few weeks of use they should begin to feel better on the ears. Do these headphones leak sound? Yes, because they are built with an open design, but if you are listening within a reasonable volume range it's not as big of a problem as some might have you believe. Mind you, somebody sitting right next to you in a QUIET room will hear what you're listening to.

My gripe is that the right earpiece detached from the headphones after only 15 months (I used cement glue to fix). And this product only comes with a one-year warranty... Also, be warned that the cord is on the heavy side, so it pulls down on the headphones and may lead to problems of wear and tear at the point of the connections. I was planning on upgrading to the SR 225, but not anymore. Instead, I'm going with the Sennheiser HD 595 as my upgrade headphones. They feel and sound great (with more bass), come with a two-year warranty, and are sleek looking.

I don't own the 595s, but I'm surprised durability drove you to them. I hear nothing but bad things about Sennheiser build quality below the $300 mark, most annoyingly cracking headbands.
