What does the e stand for in the new SR125e from Grado? Improved, thatís what! Grado's ability to combine lightness with extreme rigidity and internal damping has been put to good use on the SR125e. Based on the same design as theSR80e, the SR125e also features an improved driver and cable design utilizing UHPLC (Ultra-high purity, long crystal) copper voice coil wire. With the new 8 conductor cable design you will notice improved control and stability of the upper and lower range of the frequency spectrum, with both better supporting Gradoís world renowned midrange. The Diaphragms are put through a special 'de-stressing' process in order to enhance inner detail. The way the SR125eís new driver, cable and plastic housing move air and react to sound vibrations are now less affected by transient distortions. Bass, midrange and treble are all more open and you will enjoy the fine tonal spread and balance.

"We all agreed the Grado SR125 headphones are excellent, and that they would be a fine choice for anyone looking first to audio quality"

"Analytical listening was helped by the well-defined locations of individual instruments and voices. If headphones can be as musically satisfying as this, they must be pretty good."
"Still, in its own realm the Grado SR125 is a real winner and an excellent value. I cannot imagine a better sounding headphone at anywhere near its price."
- Julian Hirsch - Stereo Review Vol.60, No.5
"It was obvious to me that the members were very impressed by the Grado SR125 headphones."
-Edward Long- Audio Magazine Vol.79, No.8
