The sound pads are not comfortable at all for a 100$ pair of headphones, really unpleasant to wear after 40 minutes or so. And here's why; The sound quality, for the price, is EXCELLENT. Super light weight and i liked them, not bad. The metal mesh finish is exquisitely done and the positioning and styling of the emblem give the entire set a sleek layout. You will see weird sentences. Something nice is approaching, get ready for it with the pure sound of P6. The Grado SR325e's deliver unrivalled sonic performances in its price bracket, and can bring out even the most subtle details in recordings. Beautifully presented, comfortable, and very impressive. Compared to the older models, the SR325eâs is remarkably broad and free from any type of coloration. The sound is even richer and more layered thanks to the new dynamic driver and the metal housing that effectively eliminates distortions. Should have been able to tell from the moment it arrived in the foam paper box, this product was all about sound quality and nothing else.
