I would say the wooden cup makes the SR80i sound slightly less bright, and adds a little more warmth imo. I believe vocals are more detailed too, but could be just me :)

@Dysnomia, how does the use of the different ear pads affect the sound?  I have quite a bit of spare pads from my various headphones but will have to build an adapter of sorts to use any of them so I'm curious to see if its a worth while experiment.

 

PS: do you have any impression with the stock flats or alternate L or G pads?

Dysnomia: Congratulations, good work... Rholupat cups? I suppose. Thank´s for sharing.

 

Have a good day.

I used to use S and L-cush back then. The 70mm pad sounds the worst imo, mids and highs sounded recessed and veiled, I guess that's due the the pads covering the outer edge of the drivers.

 

The 100mm velour pads sounds the same as the L-cush imo, but much more comfortable, I could wear them all day.

Yep! They're from Rholupat. I also have the black aluminum rod blocks from them too. Really amazing and good quality stuff. :)

Thanks for the reply, those 100mm pads look like Hifiman pads, I made an adapter to use them on my Stax SRD-34, didn't want to pay $65 + shipping for new Stax pads that were not that comfortable to begin with.

 

I guess I'll hold of making an adapter to use my other pads for now, and I got a set of rod blocks/gimbals from Rholupat also, machine work is really nice but the spring steel used in the headbands that come with the leather headbands is not bent correctly so the ear pads don't seem to rest correctly for me but going to an old Grado headband wire works great.

Hy grado's fans, I just receive a 125e. Is there mods to do in order to increase 125e's sound or comfort ? Like quarter mod for exemple?
Thx !

This is what I did to my SR-225e:

Added dynamat in the outer sleeve and felt disk on back of button, dynamat on the back of the driver:

Opened up one extra vent hole on each driver

 

Since then made removable cables using SMC connectors and MDR-7506 headband and cheap G pads:
