I listened to each Prestige headphone for at least 10 hours. The music I listened to was compressed in Apple Lossless format. I used my MacBook Pro with iTunes for playback. The differences in sound quality noted in this review were also heard on my iPod Classic with music compressed in AAC format at 256kbps VBR quality (iTunes Plus).

The Grado Prestige Series
===================
I've done hours and hours of research about the Grado Prestige Series. The following points lead me to initially purchase the SR-125.
- Numerous forums indicated that the SR-325 was too bright and caused listening fatigue.
- Although numerous forums recommended the SR-225 instead of the SR-125, a review from goodcans.com said that the difference between the SR-225 and SR-125 was noticeable only in certain songs and required well-trained ears.
- The Grado website advertises "The SRx25 will produce a sound that is pure Grado, with warm harmonic colors, rich full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics, and an ultra-smooth top end." on all SR-x25 headphones, which indicates that the SR-225 and SR-325 are refinements to the original SR-125 (original by order of price).

Below is the list comparing the headphones in the Prestige series and the Reference series. Please note that I have only listened to the SR-80i, SR-125e, SR-225e, and SR-325e. I relied on data from my research for the following differences: SR-60 vs SR-80, SR325 vs RS2, RS2 vs RS1.

I’m no audiophile but after doing a little bit of research I decided to pick up some Grados. I was going to go for the SR80s but opted instead for the 125s.Now first off these headphones are very light and at first glance they don’t look like premium headphones. The headphones have a lot of plastic but the cord is quite thick and durable. Sound quality is a different story.

Good headphones is something that you really need to experience to understand. All my life I used cheap headphones because I thought those sounded “good”. It’s not till you listen to quality headphones that you realize what you’ve been missing. I’ve spent some time listening to my old library and wow has it come roaring back to life. With these headphones you will hear lots of little details that were not present before and the sound is just so much more vibrant overall. These should only be used at home because of the open air design which lets out quite a bit of sound.

If you have sensitive ears then you might not like these headphones because the stock ear pads are quite uncomfortable. However there are several different types of earpads out there as well as a variety of mods to improve comfort. Which brings me to my next point, Grados are known for being very customizable. I installed some wooden cups to add a more old school look and I couldn’t be happier. Overall I would definitely recommend these if you’re looking for some awesome Grado sound.

I've been an Amazon member for well over a decade, and a Prime member for as long as Amazon Prime has been around, and this is the first time I've felt compelled to review a product.

First, the obligatory "I'm not as audiophile" disclaimer. That is to say I don't really care about the sound for its own sake, but only inasmuch as it enhances or detracts from my enjoyment of music, which I do care about quite a lot. I am a musician (instrumental) and a lifelong music-lover. I listen to a lot of orchestral music as well as alternative and indie rock and, to a lesser extent, jazz.

Second, a little background. My source is a laptop through a Schiit Magni/Modi DAC/amp. My sound files are either ripped CD's (flac) or Google All-Access ("up to" 320kbps mp3). My first upgrade over stock iPod earbuds was a pair of Beyerdynamic DT 235's, which I still own and find pretty decent to listen to. However, I wanted something with more sense of space and better clarity and detail in the music. After reading about a million reviews for different products, I settled on the Audiotechnica ATH-AD900, which I used exclusively for several months.

All the reviews of the AD-900 are accurate. They are incredibly clear and rather bright with a huge soundstage, and are incredible for vocals. If I close my eyes when listening to the Benedictines of St. Mary, I can practically smell the inside of the church. The high end was great as well - the cymbals really shimmer. Unfortunately, the bass is almost non-existent. Bass is not a big concern in the music I listen to, but the bass was so weak that it even limited orchestral music - instruments like trombones and bassoons didn't really come through and there was no rumble to the bass drum or buzz from the string bass.

Anyone who knows headphones and appreciates good sound knows that Grado makes products for audiophiles, and that its products are mostly unknown by most if not all of the public. I bought my first pair of Grado headphones (Grado SR80s) more than 20 years ago, and I still have those headphones today. They have held up well, although the Y connector has become twisted and frayed.

The Grado SR125i is the latest mid-priced over-the-ear headphone in the Grado lineup. The SR125s are a step-up in price and quality from the SR80s, and the SR80 is an outstanding headphone, especially considering the price. The Grado SR125 is a little more expensive, and produces a wider soundstage, with bass sounding a little more refined and deeper and highs a bit more crisp. I tested these headphones with different genres of music, including high resolution music (192kHz/24bit) and everything, as expected, sounded outstanding.

I used the SR125s with a high-end portable digital audio player, as well as my Android phone, and both devices could easily drive the SR125, although a headphone amp will produce even more sound.

From a style perspective, the SR125i has the same retro look of the other headphones in the Grado Prestige Series. The headphones are light, and the cable is thicker than the cable on my old SR80s.

It's important to note that the Grado Prestige Series are open headphones, so they don't offer any real isolation from external noises, and they leak sound, so others in the room will hear what you are hearing. Open headphones generally offer more of a natural sound than closed headphones, with better soundstage and more natural bass.

If you are looking for audiophile sound at a very reasonable price, then the Grado Prestige Series, and the SR125i, is an excellent choice, especially if you plan to use these headphones in a quiet location.
