Congratulations mate!!!

I still have to listen to a pair of Grados that I really love, but if those exist, I bet are those wonderful HP-2.

How do they sound? Noticeably different from the stock cord? Do they have mods other than balanced wire?

Nope, it had the APureSound V2 installed before.

I'll report on sound later. Can't be blasting open headphones at work until 5 PM now.

Congrats! One of the finest headphones I've had the pleasure of listening to. You're going to love them.

Only 90 minutes of suffering left!

I felt the same way about Grados until I heard both an HP-1 and HP-2 at MOA. I now am an HP-2 owner. Unlike modern Grados (IMO), they are balanced and neutral. Even better, their rendition of high frequencies doesn't make my earls bleed!

Here's mine on my head:
