Grado Headphones SR325is

Lots of good stuff comes from NYC, but I bet you didn’t expect a company that makes some of the best hifi headphones in the world. Yes, Grado - more than half a century old - does just that from their company on Seventh Avenue in Brooklyn. And what a beauties they make, not only soundwise, but also designed with a style that’s pleasingly straightforward. Just take a look at that metal mesh on the side.

The Grado SR325is headphones win just about every award there is from every renowned hifi magazine and site, such as What Hifi, HiFi Choice, The Absolute Sound, Stuff, Audio Magazine, Pro Audio Review and more.

Not cheap with prices varying from $295,- online up to €399,- in shops, but it’s a great way to probably enjoy your music on a whole new level.
