GRADO SR325x Stereo Headphone

Noise Cancelling

Key features: 44mm drivers improve efficiency, reduces distortion, and preserves the harmonic integrity of your music, copper 8-conductor cable, calf-skin leather headband and more.

Price: $295

  • Excellent detail and dynamics
  • Hugely entertaining performance
  • Rugged build
  • Open-back design leaks sound
  • New earpads won’t suit all

However, the open back design of Grado’s Prestige series models rarely feel like luxury headphones and nothing has changed with this new generation.. The company has significantly changed its 44mm drive unit with an improved motor system, new diaphragm and an upgraded coil. Moreover, with compare of the two types of earpads and it becomes clear. That the headphones look simpler and more authentic in the bass with the new design.

Additionally, the SR325x may sound a bit bass-light compared to such products, although considering the many advantages of the open-design approach we are happy to make that sacrifice. They have refines what were already excellent headphones, tuning the usually more linear and flat sound into something deeper and warmer. Although it does not reach the level in my opinion of my favourite HIFIMAN Edition XS. Which are still better headphones than these one.

In terms of soundstage there is not as much difference as other reviewers say, but they still stand out with the G pads, much more than with the painful and scratchy ones that come from the factory and that are only a little less irritating than the old bowl-shaped ones that included so far.

  • Portable charging case (Lightning/wireless)
  • Price
  • Charges via lightning cable
  • Design not for everyone

If you want AirPods—or have an iPhone—the AirPods Pro is the only pair of Apple earbuds we recommend picking up for several reasons. Not only does it sound significantly better than the open-fit AirPods, but it offers more in the way of features and useful accessories too. Sure, the AirPods Pro is pricier than the latest AirPods with wireless charging, but you get a lot for that extra cash. If you’re an Android user, you should skip the AirPods Pro. Sure it’s good if someone happens to gift you a pair for some reason, but you’ll miss out on a lot of the features that make the buds worthy of consideration, due to lack of cross-platform support.

Deciding where to buy your AirPods Pro can be difficult, but there are a few key things to remember before you purchase any electronic device: does the vendor offer a good warranty; how is its customer service; is there a live chat function? We’ve put together a detailed guide on where to buy headphones to ease your concerns, but remember that you’ll pay a premium for better warranty coverage and customer service.

The back of the case is where you will find the USB Type C port. It is also interesting to note where this product is made these days, Galaxy Buds Pro 2 is made in Vietnam. You can find it at the bottom of this case.

The Galaxy Buds 2 has better voice cancellation and passive isolation functionality than the Galaxy Buds Pro. Samsung’s ANC silences low-frequency sounds and makes them a quarter as loud as they sound at all without earbuds. You’ll notice the difference when toggling sound cancellation on and off. But this depends entirely on your ability to fit well with the included silicone ear tips.

Furthermore, the Galaxy Buds 2 supports several Bluetooth codecs: SBC, AAC and Samsung scalable codecs. Earbuds use Bluetooth 5.2, which offers LE audio support and an LC3 codec. Connection stability is good inside or outside, and with iPhone or Samsung smartphones.

If you’re after some of the attacks and positives from your wireless noise-cancelling headphones, you’ve almost definitely stopped reading. But if you value a smooth ride, a few sonic surprises and an audible balance, the Y600NC works well enough to ensure it’s on your radar. As long as ‘refinement’ beats the ‘excitement’ in your book.

The AKG Y600NC provides an simple look and comfortable touch control on each earbuds. However, despite an affordable price, AKG Y600NC comes with a cool software feature through the AKG app. It helped us while tile tracking, and audio sharing with other headphones. The earcups house 40mm full-range dynamic drivers – but, as is usual with wireless over-ear models, they have additional responsibilities too. You can enjoy up to 25 hours¹ of wireless playback with Bluetooth and Active Noise Cancellation turned on, and up to 35 hours with just Active Noise Cancellation on.
