Isn't that what that 'volume' thingy is for?

Most likely.  Perhaps a closer examination is in order?  One can never be too shure.

Interesting: my "main axe" cans are 325is for home, Senn HD 25-I Mk II with my iPod classic/Fiio inline remote-amp combo. Lots of bang for 500 bucks total.

The only negative I can give on the 325is cans is the plastic gimbals. Both of mine are stripped out where the S.S. adjustment rods thread in. Thankfully, I have metalworking as a hobby, so I made new ones in aluminum. Now working on making some in stainless steel.

Post photos please. Very interested in seeing the results. And the stainless steel ones when they are done.

Images are of one side with an aluminum prototype and the other with stock plastic for comparison on my 325is cans. Stainless will be much more durable (the aluminum ones are somewhat fragile), and I will post pics once complete. My design mounts to the adjustment rod with a set screw on the foam side and to the cups with my own modified socket head cap screws. Each set I make is handmade and fitted to my 325is cans.

That is beautiful! I'd totally rock those on my PS500!

Yea, those are pretty sweet....good job.

That is an incredible ability you have to craft something like that, you should be working for Grado.

Thanks for the kind comments, trying to finish the first stainless ones in the next few days. It's kind of hard right now though since my wife and I just had a new baby! Might be delayed another week, will keep updating though...

That is absolutely awesome! I might need you to make a pair for me.
