My cups just arrived from Malaysia! Stunning!!

 

If anyone is looking for some amazing looking cups for real cheap look it up Headphoneku Fammate on facebook, this guy is super awesome! Very friendly and great prices.

 

Got this for $90 including international shipping via DHL to South Africa. I have no filiation with them, just thought that a real good seller should be recognized. 

 

If i was to say anything is that the cups did not come with adhesive foam for a snug fit, but who cares right? 

 

The cups are Malaysian Tamarind Spalted Wood. They feel very solid and the workmanship is superb. Haven't installed yet, gonna take my time with my sr225e for about 2 to 3 weeks. Than I will write a review on the 225e with and without the wood mod.

No - a 'slip on' is just a replacement for the larger outer cup. You can fit them without 'liberating' the Grado driver from the inner plastic sleeve section of the cup.

 

Fitting vibro cups is a little more involved (although still pretty easy, in my experience). there's a video showing the process here: http://turbulentlabs.com/film/view/

is there anyone selling slip on shells anymore? I'm interested in getting some potentially.

I've never bought anything from this place myself, but they look quite good!

Sure man...

 

He's quite a cool dude... let me know what cups you chose for yourself.

 

He's got a website as well http://www.headphoneku.com . But as far as i understand the cups are not that well updated in there, so just check his facebook page or ask him what his got on stock. 

 

Once i chose the wood i wanted he sent me pics of all of his stock on that style so i could choose exactly the cups i wanted. What a champ!!

Ooooh...he has aluminium half-cups...

Are those prices for real? The cups are less than $6 USD (if I'm seeing it correctly on my phone)
post #5235 of 5431

Not sure about the prices, but I'd be interested in splitting the shipping with someone to the U.S., if it's more cost effective!
