the sound was neutralish (IIRC), but it gets by with the most bare components. I sold mine after like 2-3 weeks and bought a big-boy amplifier. for 60 bucks, I'd go with the cmoy, or save up like $80-90 for a mini3 and build it yourself (if you're into that).

Donny,

 

You'll be in good hands.  Bill has some liners finished for me, too.  However, my SR325i headphones are in the hands of Grado until the end of this coming week (driver repairs and hopefully a cable replacement).  Once I have both the liners and my 325's back, I'll try to take some good pictures of the process.  Also, part of my mission is to provide some input on the sound changes / enhancements / improvements, etc.  This, of course will be done objectively.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the outputs for the amp section on the CMOY are the same that Grado uses for their headphone amps.  Or, so I've read.

Hey bill, if you want a nice center point on those shells for the gimbal mounts, how about getting one of these?

Seems to be a nice way to just drop a hole straight through.

Nice fine.  Though, if I were to use it, I'd be using extreme care.  On some of thinner shells, I'd be a bit worried that the bit would tear them up.  However, I guess they key being - use a sharp bit, work slow and let the bit do the boring and not apply too much pressure and you are dropping the bit in to cut through the material.

He has made some sort of a device that lets him drill them perfect every time. I think it consists of a metal pseudo gimbal and dynamat... I'm sure he will comment.

Circles are awfully strong. As long as you're not getting tearout (usually a problem with the bit+wood combo) it shouldn't crack or anything.

But I think drilling prior to cutting the inner circle out is a better option if you're worried about that anyway.


And now a question for you guys. Has anybody ever cut with a router and template? If so, are you buying the template or making it? Cutting with a router seems like it could provide a cleaner edge than a hole saw (prior to sanding anyway)

anyone here using the listening station medium pouch?

 

Any good protection wise? I'd just like to protect the wood.

Not I.  However, I do have a plunge router and would be quite interested in exploring this option.  I'm assuming that creating a home-made jig might be our best option.

$25ish. there is plenty of room in it. no rubbing.
