The superb SR225x is the penultimate headphone model in the Prestige Series, by Grado Labs.
For Grado, the Prestige Series is where it all begins. Featuring their new 4th generation drivers, Prestige is the best way to experience the storied Grado sound for the first time. The range includes both their first-ever headphone and metal pair, and these classics embody seven decades of Grado Labs audio know-how.
If you're not quite into the metal and wood at the top of this range, the SR225x produces a fine tonal spread and balance to your music, and remains Grado through-and-through.
The SR225x and SR125x have had a sibling rivalry for decades. Being the mature one, the SR225x utilizes the new F-cushion to open up the sound to more textured tones. The driver works in unison to produce a unique voicing and be just as fast as the SR125x. Just don’t tell their kid brother.
The clarity and range of Grado headphones can reveal new notes and details in songs heard hundreds of times. The driver and housing working in tandem react to sound vibrations and virtually eliminate transient distortions. With warm harmonic colors, smooth top-end, excellent dynamics, and a world renowned mid-range, the SR225x produces a sound that’s pure Grado.
4th Generation Grado drivers are here. Specifically tuned for the SR225x, this new speaker design features a more powerful magnetic circuit, a voice coil with decreased effective mass, and a reconfigured diaphragm. Reengineering these components for our 44mm drivers improve efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.
Along with the speakers, the cables and headband have been redesigned for the SR225x. Now housed in a more durable exterior, the 8-conductor cable transfers more information and features a super annealed copper wire for improved purity of the audio signal. The new headband features more cushion for a comfier experience.
Each SR225x is hand-built by our team in Brooklyn. This headphone goes from workbench to workbench until it’s ready for your ears. We started building on a kitchen table in 1953, and every experience since then has led to the creation of the SR225x.
