And the best part is it won’t break the budget. Let’s take a look at the design and specs of this great mid-priced open-back headphone.
The Grado SR225e is similar looking to the other headphones in the Prestige series but the secret is in the recipe of parts, drivers, sound signature and overall design. All the materials used in the earcups of Grado headphones are carefully selected for their reaction to sound waves as they pass around and through the backing. The SR225e headphone is built with a sizeable metal screen for more air flow as the driver moves back and forth playing your music. This air flow allows for a wider soundstage and the entire backing itself is designed to not over accentuate or distort the frequencies. The result is a full warm tonal sound from the bass all the way up to the higher frequencies.
The sound signature created with the Grado SR225e finds itself well with many different styles of music. From classic rock to early punk. Or indie rock and 90’s grunge. And the aural fun doesn’t stop with just these genres. Top-40’s pop music really hits in a way you wouldn’t expect. The SR225e is truly a solid open-back headphone designed to bring back the emotion and feel of your music in a way you haven’t felt in years.
