Does anyone have a simple AutoCad file with basic woody cup dimensions etc? 

Thinking about making some at the workshop at my uni and a set of drawings would be super helpful!

...still on the "More Comfortable Grado" project...solved the bass problem with pad-rolling. @stratocaster will be gratified to know, it was indeed the velour/leather pads making them them behave the way they were. Anyone recognize the pads I ended up putting on them to solve my problem?

Negative... what pads are those with the G cush shoved in?

Flats with G cush on top?

Nope, just a pair of Ear-Zonk G-Cush stretched waaaaay further than I initially felt was appropriate. Works nicely though.

Hey fleasbaby, how do you like the ear-zonks? I have one of their L-cush pads, they seem fine.

post #4882 of 5451
They work well enough...not sure how I feel about the density of the foam though...I tried washing the L-Cush ones I have to soften them up, to no avail...

...a new custom build for a friend of Jim the wood turner...used one of the headbands I had made locally, walnut cups, and SR80i drivers:

I just pulled the trigger on a set of Magnums from Turbulent. I already have a set of Vibro Classics and a Black Manta. All I need now are a set of aluminum gimbals and my Grados will be totally non Grado :gs1000smile:

They are odd indeed. Same dimensions on the outside as a pair of Beyerdynamic DT770, just no bar across the middle for model name...

Good choice on the Vintage cups btw! I had a pair a while ago....I love the shape...

Is there any way to mod a RS2i to detachable cables, e.g. for a short one ("mobil" use) and a long one (home use at a full size amp)? Interesting thread too, some nice mods - great work :normal_smile :
