What adapter are you using? I need a new one anyway since mine keeps shorting out.

 

In my case, I bought the Live Wire adapter from Guitar Center for $3.00 or so.  I believe Live Wire is also the same as the Hosa brand.   If you want an *excellent* adapter, purchase the Grado 1/4" to 1/8" adapter.  It's about 8" long and costs around $15.00.  However, it is beautifully made and will ease any strain being placed on your plugs.

Yeah, at $15+S&H I could make my own 8" cable and have considered it.

I rarely use the Grados away from my receiver (current amp regardless of how bad it is) so I don't see the point of making a 1/8" adapter or recabling.

I'm looking for portables anyway so it's probably better to just let them go with their 1/8" and the Grados with the 1/4" while at home. Most desktop amps are big enough to have 1/4" there, or mod to use one so I think I'm safe there.

Personally, other than the 80i being a little smoother than the 60i, I didnt find them to be a great deal different - certainly not the jump I experienced going from MS1 to SR325is. Having modded a second pair of 60i, I can safely say that I dont need to hear anything less than a recabled pair of 225s - even then, it may not be a huge improvement. Wood is where most of us want to be, so why fight it ?

Not exactly.  There was a vendor on eBay a few weeks ago selling the adapters for about $12.00 + $1.00 or so shipping.

there's always one... :)

I'm going to forward all the curly ones I get at work to ChrisLangley from now on :)

 

Dear Chris,

 

     We have a laptop here that passes all the usual tests on RAM, CPU etc, yet still periodically freezes up. Very annoying for the customer - please troubleshoot and get back to me. I need to invoice this guy so I can get back to daydreaming about audio.

 

Your friend,

 

Mr E. Streeter

What are you saying not exactly to?

$5.09 Neutrik Locking 1/4" Jack: http://www.markertek.com/Connectors-Adapters/Audio-Connectors/1-4in-Phone-Connectors/Neutrik-USA-Inc/NJ3FC6.xhtml?NJ3FC6
$1.10 Rean 3.5mm stereo plug: http://www.markertek.com/Connectors-Adapters/Audio-Adapters/3-5mm-Adapters/REAN-a-Brand-of-Neutrik-AG/NYS231G.xhtml?NYS231AU
$1.10 Mogami Mini Quad W2534: http://www.markertek.com/Cables/Bulk-Wire-Cable/Bulk-Audio-Cable/Mogami-Wire-Cable-Corp/W2534-00-A.xhtml?2534%20WH

That's a foot long one for $7.29+$8.81 shipping (to my house anyway). $16.10 for a locking one that's 4" longer. A matter of $3 is pretty much nothing if you care about locking connectors (which you could also eliminate to cheapen it) and that extra bit of length then this is a better deal.

And when it's tagged on with more cable and plugs for interconnects, recabling, and other assorted projects, the shipping cost of those 3 parts in relation to total shipping drops off a lot making it cheaper in such a situation.

And Chris, yeah I know it can give away your intentions, but really, LMGTFY is already a waste of time. If you care enough to make that happen, just give them the google link itself. And there was a thread here recently about fearing short links so I figure I should help the link fearing ones out smily_headphones1.gif

Viruses. Some sites can hijack steam accounts if you have them open. Java exploits, flash exploits, pdf exploits, one of my favorites is the exploit that uses an image that Windows renders as if it were an icon and then exploits that.

I first read that I ain't secured

Anyway, I found the one and only template bit at the tool shop for a router is the right size so I feel a little better about trying this. Gotta remember to go and get the router and get out trying some cuts.

Oh and how about making cups shaped like ducks too? Anybody really crafty with a jigsaw, have a CNC/milling machine, or A LOT of time to use a coping saw?

At some point no amount of reading and obsessing can take the place of making a decision and getting a set of phones to put on your ears. The bigger problem is Grado's are addicting. So whether you end up with the 60 or the 80 at some point your going to want to up Grado. Spending to much time on Head Fi is also a very costly endeavor in and of itself. So your wallet is now basically subject to the whims of your irrational emotional need to try and catch the wind. In a word sir you are...
