Love these heasphones. Using them for mixdowns and mastering with my studio monitors.
Very flat sound and superior craftmanship. Nice job!


Good headphones - Amy

all 4 generations are good

i have the 125,125i,125e and the 125x. they all sound so very good, but these are the most thunderous. my only complaint is the 3.5mm plug and it being straight, which i find the i/e-Grado right angled plugs more durable.


These are marvelous headphones. Clarity , a balanced sound, a lovely spread of the sound a really notable qualities. Very comfortable to wear over extended periods.
The music at times was revealed more fully by these phones than from my experience listening with speakers. I have hearing aids and there was no need to remove them. A superb product totally satisfying.

Customer Service

The quality of sound reproduction of SR125x is quite exceptional. I am exceedingly pleased with these, my 2nd set of Grado headphones.

That said, Grado customer service is simply beyond compare. Theresa, an absolute sweetheart, was assisting me by phone and said, "Hold on a minute." Then John Grado picked up the line and spoke with me. I was near speechless that the owner of the company took that level of interest in my call.

Each interaction with Grado Labs has made me feel progressively confident in my purchase.

The product and the people are of the highest caliber.
