If I'm correct, those are the new version of the magnums

I have the Magnum V4 and have been comparing the PX 100's against the magnums for the last couple of weeks. While I still like the Magnums I give the nod to the Sens.

 

You are correct.

Aluminum gimbals. These babies are really starting to get there for me. The weight just feels right and the durability is more than obvious. Yes, I am starting to reach the point of no return, but it comes with its own rewards! Lol many many thanks to PintoDave who must have put hours and hours in to building and polishing these rings, but man do I love 'em!'n

7Keys,  Thanks for coming over to the dark side.  The PX100 drivers were on sale prior to the holiday and some vendors went back to $69.  Amazon, J&R, etc. are still down under $50.  I think I need to splurge for a few more as I have some spare cups and was debating whether to spend $160 (2 @ $79, + tax) for two new pair of the SR-60i from Grado.  It seems like the market on this forum for various Grado parts (drivers, mainly) has dried up.  On Ebay, quite a few auctions for the 60s and 80s end up $10 to $15 under a new pair @ retail.

Your cups with the aluminum gimbals look excellent!

A visit from Jim the turner again today...



A pair of closed back Paduaks for me, notched for easy driver swapping and experimenting (going to be trying them with Platan, KSC75 and PX100 ii drivers):





A pair of nice Zebrawoods too:





And this is Australian Myrtle. I really like the proportions on the design, and the wood has a nice color to it.

Wow, Jim is really branching out with more wood selections and different cups, too.  They all look excellent!

Thanks wje...indeed, every time we talk I tell him a little more, and the next time we speak he has something new...

 

He called me the other day proudly proclaiming he had just received his first pair of SR80 headphones. He had ordered them to "...see what all the fuss was about..." His only comment was "WOW!"

 

He loves them.

Thank you! I know we have all heard it beat to death, but after going through 3 plastic gimbals, all coming in various states of angle, when the opportunity arose for a handmade set of quite heavy duty, I jumped for joy. The polished alum contrasts really nicely with the dark mahogany too. Only thing is, I said I'd stop there......now I'm perusing the driver options.....

Those are fantastic...they look a great deal more durable than Martin's too...although I have never owned either, so its hard to say for sure.

Yes, but for some reason I have a hard time admitting I like the Sens more., maybe it will get easer with time.

LMAO...I can sympathize a little...

Really love this. May I ask where you got the gimbals from? They would look great on my SR325is.

Just snagged a pair of PX100s for only $30 and I started braiding cable last night!
