I used the UHPCL cable that grado uses on the stock cans because well, Grado cables are already pretty darn good. I believe the point of the 8 conductor is to decrease the resistance. After putting that cable on I could hear a big difference in bass and treble response so I would recommend getting that if you can. I was going to use two neutrik plugs for a connection but i decided to keep the cost down and just hardwire the drivers. ( it is kinda a b*#@% getting a cable to run through the thick headband)
Think you could post a pic of your setup? I love seeing what others do and yours sounds pretty nice
It made me happy for you to ask to see them, I've put a ton of work into 'em:
Grado 60i's (only a month old lol):
Beyer headband (you should have gotten this, it's $9 shipped and much easier to run cables through)
RQ mod 414 pads
New aluminum grill
Single cable mod w/ Neutrik plug (Waiting for other terminator to get in to do other side as well, as of now it's just heatshrunk to the original Grado cable)
Nylon cable shielding
Spraypainted the entire thing to get all colors even and then sanded everything except the ring with the lettering on the cups. Looks really nice. The ring is shiny and the cup is a dry black, really cool but hard to tell from the picture.
6 hole vent mod
The only things I really wanna do yet is dampen it but I dont have any dynamat and don't wanna buy a huge box of it or whatever (still looking for someone on here who could ship me some for postage or whatever)
and get some L-cush'es cause this yellow is hideous haha...
I just used some random crappy blue wire to finish the single-cable mod. I could have done a better job with it, there's a little more exposed wire in the cups then there should be, and I also made it about 1/2 inch too short but I don't think I'll ever mess with it
Oh yeah, and I broke the right gimbal. There's electric tape holding it together haha... Grado's mailing me another one for free. Great company.
I'm not really an audiophile but I like making things look cool I suppose, nothing I've done has made any change in sound that I can really recognize but I do it regardless cause I can
