3.0 out of 5 stars Try before you buy!, 13 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Grado SR225is Prestige Headphones (Electronics)
Wonderfull detail, BUT too sibilant for my liking and for the price. I have been using my set for about year and it is as hisssssssy now as when it came. The costly addition of Graham Slee Novo headphone amp did not improve the problem in any way. The set construction feels a little primitive too. The cans twist around freely and its too easy to get the cables,(enclosed in a cumbersome loose sleeve) twisted "out of place" with minimal use. The set comes in a flimsy cardboard box and you will need to buy a storage case to protect your investment if you intend to move it about. The cost of the replacement foam ear cups seems somewhat high too.Definitely try before you buy.

Definately wasn't expecting to hear this from Grado. I've never had a pair of Grado's before and there's nowhere around me that sells them instore. Interesting you find them too sibilant though, what are you using as a playback source?

They're not so sibilant to start with, and they improve as they burn in.
