Mean mod of the minute:
1) Remove the backs with steam.
2) Punch out all the holes in the felt/cloth behind the drivers.
3) Remove the screen from the front.
Believe it or not, this will give you more ample bass and give you a cleaner high end. It's free but it's not as easily reversible.
I have been using the Alessandro MS1's for a while, but the thing that really gets me is (gasp) the cable that comes with all Grados.. They just don't seem to stay straight, and whenever I use them for portable use, they're just too stiff and awkward for me to use.
So, I want to recable my MS1's with something slightly thinner, something that will not easily tangle, and with no microphonics... maybe I can mod it so I can get rid of the Y-split as well.
The purpose of me wanting to recable is purely for comfort sake, not to improve the SQ, so I probably will not spend on any cabling over $20.....
with that said, can anyone suggest me with a good, but cheap cabling for this matter?
