Could I still solder new cable onto the driver or is it too late ... On soldering, which side is ground and which side is channel ...

I'm not positive, but if the tabs are facing you, the left is the signal, and the right is the ground.

 

EDIT: I'm wrong :(

Haven't seen much posted about the EarZonk replacement pads. I've always been hesitant about getting the Grado G pads because of what I consider a ridiculous price for some foam. I bought the EarZonk G pads for $15 from Amazon. Coming from the Grado L pads, these are so much more comfortable.

Any gentlemen who've woodied their 325s care to comment on how the sound is affected? 

post #4602 of 5429
No responses? I was kind of curious myself...would be fun to at least hear if anyone has replaced the plastic sleeves with wooden ones...

I had a pair of 325is that I woodied using some Vibro Classic cups (so fully liberated but with a 1mm layer of foam tape around the edge of the driver so to hold it snugly in the wooden cup)

 

I can't say I noticed a massive difference in sound really! It's difficult to tell as I didn't have a stock set of 325is for direct comparison (although I did have my MS1is) I *think* the sound was slightly smoother overall, but nothing revelatory.

 

The one significant difference was to the sound stage, which was definitely improved. However, I think this was due to the fact that the driver, when seated in the cup,  was recessed by amount 2mm compared with the stock cups, so were positioned slightly further from my ears. (This also improved comfort as the face of the drivers no longer touched my ears ... )  I suspect this is all specific to the Vibro cups though, so probably of little use (unless you plan to buy some ... )

I can't get the ear zonk GRADO G' s in canada, and I really want to try them badly, especially with the tape mod. What are your impressions ? It seems to vary wildly across the board. The obvious increase in comfort aside. What are your impressions? Furthermore, if you find them not to your liking I would be more than happy to take them off your hands, and compensate you well!!
