I know it is vert hard to remove the grills from the stock plastic cups.

I also tried boiling them in hot water, but this warped the cup. You may have too break the grills to get them out, assuming you are replacing them with something else (metal screen maybe).

Yeah, I figured so. Thanks.

Question. How much do the wood cups change the bass? I have ordered some Vibro wood cups,they are on sale for $80 btw,for my 80's.

I can't tell you about the specific pair because I bought them with the wooden cups already installed. However I can say that over the course of several Woody modifications, the soundstage is improved and depending on the woods, the texture of the bass.

What I want is to make my 80's much more distinct from my 225's in terms of sound signature.

There are plenty of options for tweaking the sound, i.e. tape mod, hole punch mod, different cup sizes and materials, but you're still talking about small changes to very similar drivers.

If I had to guess, I'd say the biggest change you could make would be to switch to metal housings instead of wood or plastic

I had SR80i about little over a year, never bothered to recable.

 

BUT over the weekend I completely replace by mogami quad cable (OFC 4N), what a significant sound quality improvement.

 

I am kind of guy that really don't believe in cable improvement but this upgrade changed my mind or at least I can say that the factory Grado headphone cables are really cheap cables.

 

Anyone knows the spec on the factory cable ?

I was always under the impression that Grado cables were good quality. They certainly seem thicker than most?
