I'm a massive fan of Grado. I own SR80 (1st gen) and love them. They actually APPRECIATE in value the longer I have them, which is unheard of in headphoneland. But my real babies are my SR225 (also 1st gen) I picked up in sleight disrepair from a local pawn shop for $75. Some aftermarket ear foams, new rubber end caps, and a thorough cleaning brought them back to factory fresh status. My opinion is the metal driver housing of the SR225 does wonders for the clarity and impact of the signature Grado sound and are easily my favorite (although niche for sure) headphones in my collection. It's amazing how close the SR80s, with light plastic drivers, sound in comparison and they Def pull their own weight. But at the end of the day there is no substitute for the unique and addicting aural experience provided by the higher end Grado SR225s.
