I'm not sure what your tool of choice was, but most people have recommended using a ball-point pen.  With that in mind, you still have to be careful of the depth level that you push the pen in to make the holes.  Ideally, you'd just use the very tip of the pen to slightly puncture the material and move the pen around the inside of the hole to open in up.  When moving the pen around, one has to be careful to be mindful of the depth of the pen so it doesn't sink into the hole too far and damage the driver.

 

From the way it sounds, you might have damaged the driver.  I've been there, done that.  You might have to send your 'phones into Grado for replacement of the drivers.  Their repair costs are not too bad and it will take about 3 weeks of total time - including shipping both ways.

Chris,

 

Do you have an Ohm meter?  Usually, a voltage meter / Ohm meter runs only about $10 and is a good thing to have.  If you use the Ohm meter portion, you can check continuity between the lead of the wire and the headphone plug to determine the positive from the negative.

ughhh how frustrating this is the second driver i've destroyed. i thought i was being cautious using the tip of a ball point pen as well. i didn't even vent each hole to make a "circle", rather a gash instead.

hold the presses! just auditioned them again this morning and the driver seems to be fine now, just slightly less louder than the other driver...i think. i need to tame the crackling of base just a tad, nothing blu-tak can't handle. 

 

thanks for your opinions everyone :{0  

 

ps has anyone added these wav files to their playlist http://www.burninwave.com/? i leave my phones on at hours at a time with these files.

Is there a preferred color that one should use?  I'm sure a red Sharpie will bring out the best of the bass when opening up the holes.  Then again, I'm partial to red.  wink.gif

Sorry, folks, but I have to save another image that popped up for James' avatar.  That last dude was way too ugly.  I like the ladies much better.  wink.gif

Bad news: I killed another lathe.

Good news: I used the store credit towards the purchase of a better lathe.

Yikes, Bill. Harbor Freight must know your name by now... they've got to be wondering what you're up to!

You sound just like my buddy last night. He was ridiculing me about trying to decide on a grille color. "black will bring more bass, Scarlet mids, etc."

Bahaha.. Every minute I'm at home they are on my head.. Maybe I'll take some pictures of the progress tonight. Maybe. I should be putting the silver cables on the grados and my portapros tmrw. Still need to visit a cloth store to see if i can't dampen a bit of this bass (although the bass heaviness sounds as good as ever). Then I have to fashion some grilles and figure out how exactly I'm going to get them in place.
