e series: The Grado e series represents the company's third
generation of headphones. Every aspect of the headphones; the drivers, cable, plug, even the
glue; has been upgraded for better sound quality and dynamics. As in the
previous series, the e series headphones are all made by hand at
Grado's facility in Brooklyn, NY.
Prestige Series: Grado's Prestige Series of headphones has a retro look
and a sound quality that is the result of over 60 years of audio research. These
headphones make the pure Grado sound signature available in an affordable package.
SR325e: The Grado SR325e, the top headphone in the Prestige
Series, has an open back design, which increases the airflow through the rear
metal grill to produce a full, more realistic
experience. These on-ear headphones utilize UHPLC (Ultra-High Purity, Long Crystal)
oxygen-free copper voice coil wire and state-of-the-art driver design. The
SR325e steps up to a powder-coated aluminum housing, instead of the SpaceBlack
polycarbonate. The added mass translates to a smoother transition throughout the
entire frequency spectrum. The drivers in the SR325e
are matched to within 0.05dB for optimum stereo imaging. The headphones also
have a genuine top-grain leather padded head strap.
8-Conductor Audio Cable: The SR325e has a high-quality 67"
audio cable with a 3.5mm gold-plated plug. This new cable design exhibits
greater control over the low and high frequencies, and lets Grado's world-famous
midranges sing. The plug has a sturdy molded sleeve
with ample stress relief. Included in the box is a gold-plated, snap-on 6.5mm
(1/4") adapter that you can use with your home audio components.
Note: The size of the plug sleeve may cause interference with
some smartphone cases.
Replaceable Cushions: The high-quality foam rubber circum-aural ear cushions can be
removed for cleaning, if needed. If they show signs of wear, you can replace
them with the Grado
Note: The headphone's ear cushions are not covered in the
manufacturer's one-year warranty.
