Bravo!!

...is it difficult to get the cable through the headband?

Not at all, I followed this video to remove the plastic padding, fed the wires through, then put it back on the wire band.

I am new to all this modding business.
I have had a few different model grados.
Rs1i, mspro, ms1, bushmills and currently sr80i.
I am stockpiling bits.
Currently have some nice wood cups waiting and looking into doing a single sided detachable cable mod at the same time.
I love that grado sound so I am pondering which drivers to use. Either keep the 80 ddrivers get turbulent x, or try these senn mods.
So many options.


Here is a pic of the cups smily_headphones1.gif

...oh my...the possibilities!

 

Custom gimbals, outer cups, sleeves, rod tips...the world is your oyster...

...you know, I would probably do naughty things to get a plastic version of the gimbals they use for the RS1....a full circle instead of the C I usually use from the SR series...

I find this wood to be one of the most beautiful woods I've worked with. It has a depth to the wood that I've never seen before. It has clear rays running through the wood much like Oak but they’re translucent, when the light hits them at the right angle they seem to pop up out of the wood, very three dimensional.  Just amazing!

if you can make me a schematic for it that I can use and pay for supplies & shipping I might be able to help a fellow headfier out.

^^ don't forget that with the rs1 gimbals, they are placed a bit in front of the cable, and not align with it.

Thanks...that means I'll have to get a new pair of cups to go with them, all mine are made with the holes for the gimbals and the holes for the cable all along the same axis...oh darn ;)
