The Grado SR-225 is every bit an upgrade to the Grado SR-80

Everything the 80 does the 225 does even better. There is a bit more detail. A good deal more bass. The separation of the instruments is just something to behold. These headphones are more balanced than it's little brother. The soundstage is sinful. It's like you're on a small stage with the musicians. You can directionally place everyone in the band.

It's funny how quickly you can adapt to incredible sound. After a day listening to just the SR-225 I put on the 80 to remember something and the significance in sound can't be ignored.

Not a bad pair of headphones, but the SR225 is noticeably better. The bass is decent, mids have a "hardness" to them and sound unclear, and highs are typically Grado bright. The SR225 has a smoother and more exciting sound IMO.
