When it comes to Grado, some things just don’t change. You have to take them for what they are. Many of our comments about the Grado SR125es will have been said before, and will be said again.
You won’t buy them for their design, which is unashamedly idiosyncratic. They look like a headset for a 1950s shortwave radio, or the ‘ears’ on a Cyberman.
The SR125es are sturdier than they appear on first inspection, with swivelling ear cups and detachable foam-pads attached to a thin band of faux-leather, courtesy of short metal rods that stick out like antennae.
You won’t buy the SR125es for their noise isolation. Indeed, Grado seem to design their headphones with the very opposite in mind. These are about as open as open-backed headphones can be.
