All I've got is my A100 with **** kit lens, and a Minolta 70-210 f/4. Ill let you guess which lens I like more wink.gif

 

To keep thread on course, Triton and I are woody-ing my SR80i's tomorrow, and this winter we're considering making detachable silver cables.

Tritone and I are listening to our new RS1/80i's, and all we can say is thank you 7keys.

I'm wondering if I should try to woody my 225s or if I should buy some 60s or 80s to mod first...  I love my 225is and listen to them all day long when I work at home.  I know they'd sound great with wood cups, and I also want to try a removable cable mod...

 

Decisions, decisions...

It's super easy to do if you've got the wood. Cable modding is a BIT harder though.

I don't have any pre-made cups, though I may start looking for some now.

 

As for the cable modding, I've done it before on my DT770s and the voice coil wires there make those quite a bit harder to mod than my Grados would be.

 

Just have to decide on some wood and figure out how to get them made at a reasonable cost.

Swapping cups is super easy if you already have the wood cups. With some time and patience anybody can do it.

I haven't trie but I would imagine that recabling would be much more difficult and riskier since it involves soldering which can damage the driver.

Watch a few YouTube tutorials, do a test run on something cheap (I recalled my KSC75), and when you feel good about it, give it a go. I did this last weekend and it wasn't bad at all smily_headphones1.gif

For what it's worth, I've soldered my Turbulent X drivers probably two dozen times with no issues. I think people make soldering drivers sound a lot scarier than it is. Don't doddle, and you'll be fine.
