Could you confirm the brand and maybe when you purchased?  I have a Grado case I got from the UK but it was expensive!

 

That one looks good...I would like 1-2 of 'em!

 

Thanks!

Only the first pic, and the RS1 and SR325 look green. The rest are as black as the one in your pic.

The green ones are supposed to be a little thicker to fit the RS series.

Hey McProgger, what's the thing next to the pouch on the v-audio one? Looks kinda like a zipper or something like that.

To stay On-Topic (somewhat), I am going to need one for some Bilavideo-modded phones soon!

A word of caution on the V audio case for modders, depending on the dimensions of your modified cups it can be a little tight fitting. I've just changed my SR-80 cups to a GS-1000i style and they just fit, just. And that's with bowls, not sure they would make it with jumbos. Something to keep in mind.

That said, it's a really nice case for the $!

Soundstage and comfort are both increased massively. This is all relative to what I hear with bowls and this is without 'distancers'.

 

So they sound similar to bowls, nothing too drastic except for soundstage? I've always liked bowl pads for their sound despite their comfort problems. I dislike the original Grado jumbos' sound presentation, so if this one on ebay is somehow different and sounds very similar to bowls then that is quite intriguing.

Its a little velcro belt, it suppose to be to tie the cable, and it also stick (velcro like ) to the case. i use it to handle the cable when not in the box. it came with the box btw

how do the modded sr60's sound with electronica/trance/ect now? im pretty sure im gonna pick these up, but I was wondering about subbass->midbass response. (i know, open headphones = weaker bass by not having a closed chamber for resonance) I want open headphones, tinker-ability, low cost mainly, so these are almost certain to fit the bill. I ask because I read on here that the bass response was better with the woodies. any comparison graphs out there?

Honestly, I really like my grado's with all music types. However, I don't have much to compare them to, or anything really. I guess ignorance might be bliss in my case, but I'm really happy with how the grado's perform for all of my music.

Wood definitely improves the bass significantly.

I was skeptical of the whole thing, I thought removing the plastic shell alone and hearing an improvement was placebo (yes placebo and skepticism together as odd as that is) but there is no way the bass impact I heard with the cocobolo on there was placebo. They improve a lot.

Go full woodie, pop some holes out, and throw some flats on it and you will have a ton of bass compared to stock bass response.

Test some out and you will be happy.

I'm just in need of a way to cut a template, and a 1" template bit and I'll be in business with this big hunk of Jatoba I have sitting in my garage.

perfect that was the response i was looking for, only thing im worried about is the full woodie. ive heard what can happen if dismantaling goes wrong. knowing me imma go balls to the wall and do it anyway. plus plus full woodie will make the detachable wire mod slightly easier (if i can find someone to pay to make the woodies for me with a portion drilled/dremeled out for the female connector)

 

 

what would you need to create the template? a CAD program?

So are these the pads you are talking about from ebay...ebay link

 

It's hard to tell from the picture, but it seems that what you are describing is they are different than both the Grado bowls and the jumbos and offer some sort of compromise, in that they are not quite bowls and not quite jumbos. Is that correct?

your ebay link is actually a link to this thread. this is 

Bowl-Shape Pads For Grado SR60i SR80i SR125i Headphones

 

and I believe they are the same size as bowls (g-cush) and he is comparing them soundwise only.  I am quite interested in those now, maybe Saintkeat is receiving money for publicity about those bowls L3000.gif
