Grado SR125 (2014) vs HiFiMan HE-560 (2014)
The Grado SR125e (2014) hasn't managed to earn a top spot in any roundups from sources that conduct trustworthy hands-on testing. Nevertheless, reviewers from sites, such as What Hi-Fi?, Headphone Review, and Rtings all gave it a spot on their list.
Taking a look at the HiFiMan HE-560 (2014), it got featured in roundups from two reliable sources that conduct their own testing - Head-fi and Audioholics - but it fell short of earning a top spot in either.
We couldn't find any sources that tested both of these Open-Back Headphones, so we only analyzed how they performed in reviews from different sites.
We first examined which sources rated each of these best and found that the Grado SR125e (2014) got its highest, 10, rating from What Hi-Fi?, while the HiFiMan HE-560 (2014) earned its best, 8.8, score from Head-fi.
Lastly, in order to better compare them to the rest of their competition, we averaged out their review scores. The HiFiMan HE-560 (2014) managed to get 8.8 out of 10 - considerably better than the 7.8 review average of Open-Back Headphones in general - whereas the Grado SR125e (2014) earned 7.8 points.
It should be said that doing a direct Grado SR125e (2014) vs. HiFiMan HE-560 (2014) comparison might not be entirely fair due to the difference in their prices - some sources don't put much weight on value for money and thus tend to give better review scores to more expensive products.
