SR125's are very bright, meaning that the treble and highs are extended which can feel harsh to some listeners.

Take a look at SR80 or Alessandro MS1. The SR80 simply has better value than the 125, and the MS1 provides a smoother, slightly more relaxed sound that works better for use with all genres of music.

Grado is not known for quantity of bass. It is much tighter and cleaner than you are probably used to, so just a warning ahead of time that it might feel a little underpowered to you. It's something all Grado owners simply have to get used to, and ultimately burn-in should somewhat recover a portion of that bass.

Ah, one last thing - when you get your Grado/Allesandro, take a look at the pad guide in my signature. It might be able to help you if the bowls get too uncomfortable.
