“We’ve spent 65 years perfecting our sound, let’s spend some time polishing up our edges.”
– Jonathan Grado And The Sentence That Convinced His Dad To Let Him Do This
The New X Driver Prestige Series
Where it all begins. Featuring our new 4th generation drivers, the Prestige Series is the best way to experience the storied Grado sound for the first time. Including both our first-ever headphone and metal pair, these classics embody seven decades of Grado Labs audio.
Black is the Color of Space
Continue up the Prestige Series to bring a balance to your music with the speedy and consistent SR125x.
The SR125x and SR225x have had a sibling rivalry for decades. Being the younger one, the SR125x utilizes its quick driver to keep up with any music it plays while also being more affordable. Just don’t tell their big sister.
The clarity and range of Grado headphones can reveal new notes and details in songs heard hundreds of times. The driver and housing working in tandem react to sound vibrations and virtually eliminate transient distortions. With harmonic colors, full bodied vocals, excellent dynamics, and a world renowned mid-range, the SR125x produces a sound that’s pure Grado.
4th Generation Grado drivers are here. Specifically tuned for the SR125x, this new speaker design features a more powerful magnetic circuit, a voice coil with decreased effective mass, and a reconfigured diaphragm. Reengineering these components for our 44mm drivers improve efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music.
Along with the speakers, the cables and headband have been redesigned for the SR125x. Now housed in a more durable exterior, the 8-conductor cable transfers more information and features a super annealed copper wire for improved purity of the audio signal. The new headband features more cushion for a comfier experience.
Founded on a kitchen table in 1953, Grado Labs has been perfecting the art of sonic reproduction every day since. This SR125x has traveled from workbench to workbench until ready for your ears. Every experience since that kitchen table has led to the creation of the SR125x.
