Grado Labs was founded in 1953 by audio legend Joseph Grado. Grado also invented the moving coil phono cartridge and holds more than 48 patents. Retired now, Grado was inducted in 1982 into the Audio Hall of Fame.
Recently, we received a pair of Grado Labs SR125e's: The Prestige Series. These cans have a retro-cool look and a sound delivery to surpass anything retro. It's incredible, really.
If you want to hear something in your audio files that you've never heard before, then, these are your headphones. The bass is harmful, if you are of such an inclination and the soprano is divine without being shrill. It could also be harmful, if you were so inclined. Our only complaint is that the SR125e's come with a 3.5 converting device. However, it took us a bit to find it. You have to just push off the bigger part and the smaller part is inside of it.
For the $150.00 price tag, you cannot do any better than this! You just can't. 'Course, we haven't experienced any other headphones by Grado Labs...
