post #2161 of 5099

Has anyone tried the 'Radio-Shack' mod? I'm thinking I might give it a try, just to see what it sounds like on my MS2i's.
Do you think I should remove the white meshing from them as well? Or will that not have a noticeable difference, sonically speaking?

Removing the white veil will give such a slight change in sound that you wouldn't be able to really notice. You would also have to de-dust the drivers more often and if you'r hair can gets in there it can cause a grattle. I removed them on a pair of 325is and regretted it but, some other members may say the opposite.

Hello everyone, this is my first post :-))

After reading, for countless hours, various posts on this site, i decided to mod my Grado sr80i headphones. The mods...usual ones, so it goes...replace the grill, hole punch ALL 10 holes :-), erase the ugly silver lettering paint, felt mod the magnet and resonance chamber and replace the headband with a leather one, self made :-)

The result, well, amazing!

I cherish now much, much more this things and my hunger for upgrade is, kind of, settled...for now...

Thanx for reading guys, what a fine community!IMG_7030.JPG

Sock pads - so warm and fuzzy :)

 

That look so cozy. Like a winter evening with a cup of fresh made coffee.

You should finish them by painting the lettering yellow, that would look fantastic!

post #2174 of 5099

Hello all,

I have a relatively odd question. Has anyone considered non-conventional cup materials?

I'm thinking about magnum-ifying my grados later this year, which means I should have some spare drivers.

I was thinking it would be perfect to put those in some interesting cups. I started thinking of wood, but well, if I'm going interesting, why not go really interesting?

 

So far, I've been thinking of experimenting with:

-Bamboo

-Styrofoam

-Stacked corrugated cardboard

-PVC (or CPVC)

-Copper pipe (as a cheap alternative to expensive Al cups)

-Glass

-Concrete

-Brick or other masonry stuff

-Tera cotta

 

Anyone ever tried anything like that and have any thoughts? Anyone have any other suggestions?

 

Also, I vaguely recall that there is a somewhat rare wood in Hawaii called Koa wood that is very, very dense - so dense that it sinks in water, has anyone made cups out of that? I think I have a hunk of it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acacia_koa

I've seen a whole bunch of guys with Koa cups in the grado modders go magnum thread, maybe you could check it out and see what they think.
