Pros

spartan design focuses on what matters - quiet resilient and easy to fix

1 agrees

stands out - aesthetically pleasing, timeless design

1 agrees

one of the best from a price:performance ratio - SR325 is $100 (50%) more, SR125 is not well regarded

1 agrees

the most high end Grado that maintains the light plastic shell

1 agrees

slightly darker than lower grado headphone models, easier to listen to

Cons

expensive outside the USA

1 agrees

open design and thick cable are only good for quiet at home listening - cannot be easily thrown in a bag

1 agrees

potential comfort issues - takes a while to get used to

1 agrees

some believe a lesser Grado can be transformed to approach the refined sound of the 225 by implementing modifications (replacing grill, adding dampening to the back of the driver etc...)

Re-introduced in March 2009 with a slightly tweaked and improved driver, the SR225i is a high end headphone from Grado. With similar features as the SR125i, the SR225i increases air flow by 50% which is achieved through an improved rear metal screen and closer matched drivers. The result is an enlarged soundstage achieved from closer driver tolerances, while the improved rear screen frees the headphone from colorations. The SR225i is a popular middle-of-the-line option between the lower end SR60i/SR80i and the higher end RS2i/RS1i.
