Open-Back Design

Headphones with an open-back design, allow air to pass through the earcups. This means that Open-Backs do not block any noise from around you, as closed-backs do, and music being heard will also leak outside to people around you. So they can only be heard in a quiet environment.

However, Open-back headphones do sound more natural and open. Open-back headphones create a feeling of space, presenting audio as if you are sitting at a live concert. Audiophiles swear by open-back headphones, and they sound quite different to closed-backs.

These headphones are perfect for critical listening sessions, mixing and mastering music. They have an accurate soundstage presentation and precise imaging.

Grado has its deep roots in Brooklyn and has been hand-building headphones and cartridges since 1953. For three generations, tradition and heritage have been carried down with the philosophy that sound comes first, and this reflects in every element of their headphones. Keeping up with the times, Grado presents the all-new and upgraded SR225x headphones from their line of Prestige Series headphones. The SR225x has been upgraded and comes with the 4th generation of Grado dynamic drivers with a frequency response of 20 - 22,000 Hz, precision-made housing, F cushion, an 8-conductor cable and a new headband for a comfortable wearing experience. With these upgrades, the SR225x delivers unparalleled audio performance with utmost comfort.



Grado SR225x headphones have been equipped with the latest 4th gen of Grado X series drivers. Specifically tuned for the SR225x, the new dynamic driver’s design features a powerful magnetic circuit, a voice coil with decreased effective mass, and a reconfigured diaphragm. Reengineering these components for Grado’s 44mm drivers improve efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music. The SR225x also utilises a new housing that is designed to work in tandem with the X series drivers to eliminate transient distortions. With these new drivers, specially designed housing and an open-back design, the Grado SR225x delivers warm harmonic colours, smooth top-end, excellent dynamics, and a world-renowned mid-range with a nominal impedance of 38 ohms.



Every aspect of the Grado SR225x has been carefully and precisely selected to match the new drivers and deliver an immersive listening experience. The SR225x utilises the new F cushion ear pads to open up the sound to more textured tones. The driver works in unison to produce a unique voicing and be just as fast to reveal the tiniest detail in your music. To support high fidelity audio transmission the Grado SR225x comes equipped with a new connecting cable that is a super annealed copper 8-conductor cable housed in a durable exterior. This cable improves the audio transmission tenfolds and reveals the tiniest of details in your music. The new headband features more cushioning for a comfier wearing experience.



The team at Grado takes no shortcuts when it comes to crafting their headphones. The same is the case with the SR225x, which is hand-built by Grado's team in Brooklyn. This headphone goes from workbench to workbench until they are ready for your ears. Grado started building on a kitchen table in 1953, and every experience since then has led to the creation of the SR225x. This process of handcrafting headphones allows the team at Grado to maintain high quality with every single headphone. These headphones are a work of art when you come to think of their journey. To get you started, the SR225x comes bundled with a 6.5mm Golden adapter to connect the SR225x to various audio equipment.

Amazing pairs

These are serious pair of headphones. Amazing vocals and highs, tight bass. Actually the best vocals i have ever heard. Good for 1-2 hrs of listening. (Not the most comfortable pairs). Airy and nice wide sound stage.

More resolution than the SR80e

The stock L pads seem to tone down the ‘standard’ Grado bright sound to a slightly punchier low end and smoother mids/highs. I upgraded from the SR80e, so I am used to the quite urgent sound the stock S pads produce; thankfully, I ordered spare S pads so I can actually test and feel the upgrade of the drivers.

The braided finish on the cables somewhat assures me that they will not fray or break at the joints. My SR80e have served me well, and the cable broke only after daily abuse for 4 years. Let's hope this change extends the life of the cable.

Overall, this product is definitely an upgrade over the SR80 in terms of soundstage and resolution, and listening through it using my beloved S pads guarantees that I walk away feeling the shimmering highs of contentment, and that my day is off to a happy start :)

Hey there, nothing makes us happier than knowing you loved your purchase, hope you had a comfortable shopping experience and thank you for the great review and ratings!

Ah!.. the vocals!

These cans can effortlessly sing! One of the most addictive vocals I have ever heard on a headphone.

Not very Comfortable...

Cushion not very comfortable. Sound is superb.

Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear that you didn't find the Grado SR225x cushions very comfortable. The sound is certainly superb, but we hope that you'll find a more comfortable pair of earphones in the future.
