Get a pair of Fostex t50s. They are highly modifiable. I actually am liking them stock and am having some cups turned very soon. I cannot wait to hear them.
I hope you get your cups soon.................
I'm not sure. I last heard from him a week ago and he indicated he was placing my liners for my SR-325i Grados in the mail. Hopefully, he made it to the post office.
I've been posting a bit in the portable amp section this evening. My FiiO E11 arrived today with 2 LOD cables - for my Walkman and Fuze. That little amp really changes the Grado signature for sound. Wherever I thought the Grado may have been slightly bass shy before, this amp is making up for it, in a big way. Each time a component in the chain changes, I have to walk through everything all over again. Now, I wonder how the other models would fare with this amp? Would the RS-1 totally be out of this world with sound quality? Arg ... so many options.
OT: My official "offer" letter arrived today. I plan on giving my notice tomorrow and starting on June 20th. One good thing I learned about my vacation plan is that I'm on the "monthly accrual" plan and I get 10 hours added to my plan at the end of each month. However, June 17th will be my last day. Not to fear, the HR group confirmed that members of the "monthly accrual" plan get the full 10 hours for the month - even if they just work one day of the month. I could sell off my SR-325i headphones + add in that extra vacation money and get some RS-1 headphones. I'm just not sure I could make the leap into something already "done" - without me having a desire to tweak it.
