Our Verdict

These wooden backed cans are a joy to listen to

For

  • Emotive mid-range, amazing detail, fluid bass, clear treble - everything really, excellent construction and quality

Against

  • idiosyncratic styling might put some off

With their open backed wood earpieces and long rubber cord, these Grados are lookers, although comfort might be an issue for some.

They offer a rich, detailed sound that's punchier than the Grado SR325is. The mid-range is emotive, while the clear treble and fluid bass contribute to the honest picture they produce. A joy to listen to.
