Grado SR325x open back headphones. 5 star review from Whathifi! SR325x is one of our most improved products from 2022 - Grado's new 44mm drivers provide all the dynamics, clarity and detail of previous models but a new warmth and improved deep bass response has been added and it makes these one heck of a listen!
In the under $500 CAD range these are easily a top pick - and are very easy to drive. Feed them a clean, high quality signal for great results. Many of the dongle style dacs are a great match and the 325x are high quality enough to let you get your money's worth from a quality stereo amp or desktop audio system.
Grado SR325x ear pads are the new f-cushion flat pads, the cable is a much improved 8 wire cable with a new braided wrap that will better resist twisting and tangling - and just feels more like a high end quality component.
Headband is leather with minimal padding, still flexible and can be bent a bit to adjust fit. The drivers feature a new diaphragm, upgraded voice coil and motor system
