How do they sound compared with 'normal' Grados? There was a HF-2 up for sale a few days ago and I almost bought them, but I've only just picked a SR325is and couldn't really justify the money ...

Buy a set u won't regret it.i like them more than the RS1-is I had .
The only grados that come close are the 225i.
They are punchy yet warm and very versatile .the 325 I find to screechy

The leather jacket gives nice deep bass on the closed cups with PX100 drivers. It gives the open cups deep bass too but it's flabby with no detail.

That is pretty F'n sweet. I just got my HF-2's yesterday. Not sure that I'm ready to mod them just yet, but that is very interesting.

Any noticeable change in sound?

I can't really say.the problem is is when I purchased them they had been re cabled with cryo.upocc copper but was going green.there was a real annoying buzzing at a certain volume when used with an amp and this was real annoying.
I re soldered them but no difference .it took me to pop the solder ,yes I did SHxx my self when I did this as I thought that was it they were going to be no good.
I managed to use a 225i cable which I had around which has eight wires.
Wow the headphones sound wonderful.
I've since soldered in some silver grounding devices which will take about 150 hrs to break in but make them sound even clearer ,even clearer than my rs1-is grados.
I've made up a special eight wire litz cable with solid copper occ vampire wire for signal and silver upocc 7N solid core wire for the ground.silver being ground only as the grados can sound a little to bright some times.
So I've just to put a nice oyaide connector on the end and drill the other cup and I'll let you know but will probably take a few days to break the cable in .
Good on you purchasing some some HF2s as it's the best headphones I've heard so far 😃😃😃

Why did you take the 225i as Basic headphone for customizing and for example not the cheaper 80i ?

post #5021 of 5424
I posted this in the non-Grado driver thread. Honestly the only part of these that is still Grado is the metal part of the headband and the gimbles.

Started a Magnum build and wanted to recycle my MS1i cups/drivers for my lady. Yellow's her favorite color, so I ended up with this:

 

HD414 Cushions; Plattan head band; single sided entry, screen fabric for the rear vents, punch two holes for bass venting, Mogami cable.

Dang man that looks killer!

post #5024 of 5424

Indeed great work!

New headband for the SennGrados. Plussound in black and vintage red. No padding or extra fluff but still a definite upgrade in comfort and appeal over the stock band.
