Not technically Grados, but close :)

I love those cups...

Here are a few Auvio headphones for super cheap on AMZ. These have a very comfortable headband with gimbals that natively fit Grado cups.

I got mine on sale at Radio Shack - brand new for $12.99.  Not sure when the next sale will be, but if you can wait I wouldn't be surprised if they run the sale again

Hmm... May have to pick up a pair. My brother has been bugging me about buying them (he my modded sr60is now). I have larger diameter cups that I could not attach original gimbals to. So I made it gimbal-less, what I originall did not take into consideration was that the the gimbals change the angle of the cup to contour your ear properly. The SR60is fit kind of awkward. 

 

The only thing that I am worried about is me is A) those gimbals do not fit, it would be wasting money and B) how the hell am I going to properly move the metal bar stuck in the cups.

....more good stuff from Jim yesterday...these are the Lignum Vitae I mentiend before:

 

 

They are super hard, and sound fantastic.

 

These are Curly Maple:

 

Haven't tried these yet...might get some time with them tomorrow. They were an experiment on his part.

I don't see any curls in your curly maple.

They are nice though.

The Auvio gimbals fit perfectly.  The wires that you insert into the holes on the Grado cups are slightly smaller than the holes.  There are plastic inserts on the Auvio cups that can be pulled out with your fingernails.  However, if you wanted to use them on a pair of cups for the Grados, you'd have to slightly enlarge the gimbal holes on the cups.  Or, you could just apply a layer of shrink tube over the wire ands so that they fit tighter in the gimbal holes.  The wire is very solid wire, but opens when you expand it to fit over the cups for insertion into the gimbal holes.

 

I was checking on the Radio Shack Web site and lately, I can only see the Auvio headphones with the built in microphone and the cost is a bit greater - $22.99 or so.  Getting a pair that Joe has linked is a pretty good deal for the headband.  I haven't stopped by a local RS store to see if they still have the non-mic version still available.

 

In my other thread on non-Grado drivers, I posted a pic of some finer (yet sturdy) mesh that I had found from my local Micro Center.  I found a letter stand and cut it apart to get the mesh.  A picture of what I've found is provided below - installed in the cups.

Does anyone know if the monoprice 8323 headband/gimbals assembly fits/works with Grado driver/cup assemblies?

I made these to tightly fit the review cups. 

 

I'm thinking Maple bottoms and Brazilian Cherry tops.

 

post #4830 of 5186

so i have some sr225 drivers and cups and other odds and ends coming my way. i was thinking of woody-fying them...is it better to just do the whole shebang and get wood housings or should i just get wood cups that attach to the housing?
