SR60-Mod - Page 204  

post #3046 of 5003

They fit better inside out and they look better. I switch between inside out and the hf2 leather headband daily. The v3 is a good headband and I do like it. I bought it for looks and not comfort. So the padding wasnt the clincher.

I don't get why you would put it on upside down unless you don't like the padding and prefer no padding.

I've always been a function over form person. I'm sure if Bill got more headbands made, they would all eventually sell; not a matter of if but when wink.gif

 

I might even buy one for my SR60 but I don't need it though it would certainly be nice to have.

I'd buy one if I had the cash. Bill's headbands are phenomenal looking.

I don't think the headbands are a problem with Grado's. Infact padded headbands can prove to be more uncomfortable for long listening times (head itch for e.g). At first they seem uncomfortable but when I've been wearing mine for a long time I really don't know it is there, and I have a bald head!

 

I also believe it is thin and light for acoustic reasons.

Here is what I just did to my headband.. It makes it fit better for me, but keep in mind that I wear em with the rods all the way up, this lets me put a them down a little bit and get a good fit. Plus, I have really thick short hair, I'm not sure this felt padding would feel great if you were to put it directly against skin.

 

It works as a quick, easy mod for me :)

I agree, I don't think the grado's are heavy enough to need a padded headband. Adding more bulk to that area actually puts more pressure on the head than if you just left the original headband. 

 

It does however make them LOOK better, more official and less cheap looking.

I shoulda bought two and I knew it, damn, damn, damn.....

The BigBillBands are awesome (good name for them actually isn't it?) We got to lobby for Big Bill to get his guy to do up more...this picture makes them look big and somewhat bulky they are not at all, they are all around the perfect fit...in my humble opinion...

Could someone please tell me if the red on the back of the magnet indicates signal?

Stock wiring is red=left signal, white=right signal, blue=ground if I remember correctly.
