Grado case suggestion!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I've been looking for a nice carrying case for my Grados. I have the protective bag from GoodCans.com but it's not sufficient for me.

I spent two and half hours scouring military/police/tactical website for a padded utility pouch that would fit the Grados. I found two beautiful, padded binocular pouches that are just the right size. Problem is, at ~$25-31, they're a bit too pricey for me at the moment. But I thought others might be interested. If you decide to purchase one, please post a review! With pics!

Eagle Industries Hybrid Sniper Rifle Carrier-Binocular Pouch
Available in olive (shown), khaki, camouflage, and black.
Dimensions: 7 3/4" x 8 1/4" x 3", padded with 1/4" closed cell foam.



Available here, $31.

BlackHawk Tactical Binoculars Pouch
Dims: 7.75" x 8.25" x 3", padded with 3/8 inch closed cell foam.



Available here. $25 - 10% coupon "stimulus" = $22.5.

Both manufacturers (Eagle and BlackHawk) are top-notch, so these should be high quality.

(I'm not affiliated with any of the manufacturers or retailers -- just a poor grad student ).

What's wrong with the official Grado ones?




They cost about £15 here in the UK and can store extra pads. I've got a new one (for old Grado 125s and they fit perfectly). Very slick.

Nice cases. The ebay ones work great from what I have heard as well. I think they were designed for portable CD players...remember those? : )

In fact, has anyone tried these before? How is the construction and what does the inside look like? Pics would be highly appreciated!

Yes I also have a couple of those - and no i dont have pics of the insides (as I dont have a proper camera in my possession, only my mobile phone at the moment).

Construction is pretty good. Its padded, and inside there are 2 compartments, the smaller one on the side of the bag could be used, e.g. to store the headphone's cable. Fits the ath-w5000, only just.

I was planning to fit my Ms-1000 in them. They should fit I suppose. Good to know they are quite well made. I travel on the plane quite a bit and I like to bring these with me wherever I go! As long as the phones don't get crushed and destroyed in suitcases with clothes padded above and below...I'm happy!

that case appears much too big for grados, although I admit I have never tried putting my hf2s in them.
