    Grado SR225e Prestige Open Back Headphones

    • Warm harmonic colours, rich full bodied vocals and excellent dynamics
    • Special driver design and metal housing offer low transient distortion
    • Updated driver and cable design and added mass from the metal housing
    • Comfortable design with adjustable headband and cushioned earpads
    • Grado SR225e

      Based on the acclaimed design of the SR225is, the Grado SR225e is lightweight and rugged with an adjustable headband and cushioned earcups for long-lasting comfort. This next generation SR225e headphone has an enhanced air flow which is achieved through an improved rear metal screen. Bass, midrange and treble are all more wide open and you will enjoy the fine tonal spread and balance.

      The way the SR225e's new driver, cable and plastic housing move air and react to sound vibrations is virtually unaffected by transient distortions. The metal screen increases airflow, and the drivers are matched within 0.05dB to provide an enlarged soundstage and low colouration. 

      As the open design of the SR225e offers a sound that has little noise attenuation from external noise, those around you will hear sound ‘leaking' from the headphones. However, the advantage of this attribute, due to the lack of sound bouncing back from the earcups, is an open and noticeably clear sound representation.

      Music the way it was meant to be.


      Grado SR225e


      The reinforced metal rear screen increases air flow by 50%, freeing the headphone from colourations, whilst the use of closer matched drivers and larger cushions results in an expanded soundstage.

      Driving Power
      The Grado SR225e are very efficient and can be driven by the output of most portable players and inexpensive home equipment. A good quality dedicated headphone amplifier will help improve the overall control and detail of the highs, add some heft and authority to the bottom end.

      UHPLC Voice Coils
      Ultra-high purity long crystal copper voice coils and the 8-wire connecting cable provide great control of upper and lower frequencies, as well as support of midrange frequencies.
