Sock Mod Grado SR 225: Soft Ahhhhh

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi all, was out shopping with the wife when I noticed a nice black very velvety soft pair of women's socks. Of course, I immediately thought, Grado sock mod. These are now one comfortable set of cans. Socks cost $7.99 CDN. Are we all obssessed or what, hehe. The sound great too!

Follow the links below for pics.

Stylin'! With the right dress those would look amazing!

Actually they look very comfy. Are there any sonic advantages/disadvantages?

The bass sounds less boomy than with cotton tube socks and the highs sound very balanced. Only problem is that they shed just slightly. Good thing the drivers are covered.

You know...we really are a bunch of nutcases

This mod is one for a new subsection of the Headphone Fetish site..."headphones and women's accessories, best of both worlds?"


Nice stuff man, I may have to go for a little shopping trip. I'll bring the wife on this one. Buy her a coupla pairs and then just "misplace" one set

I'd like to see security react when you go through the ladies section rubbing womens socks on your ears.

Well, she was upset I ruined the nicest socks she's ever seen. I may have to go buy her a pair now. Of course, the cans are not more important than her. Really they're not. You believe me don't you. hehe. She thinks we're all nuts.

$7.99 CDN and they were the nicest socks she's ever seen? Man, you've got to take her out more often... buy her some flowers and a diamond ring or something... or at least a bus ticket...

P.S. any woman who would marry guys as nutty as us has to be even nuttier....
