288 pages later, it is about time that I join this party.
I'm relatively new to this world of headphones, but I've found that the Grado 225i's have thus far been my most rewarding purchase. For the music that I listen to the most, the Grado sound signature just makes them super fun and engaging. Of course, now I'm getting the upgrade-itis and and itching to see how much better I can get. The RS1s are in my future at some point, but this thread has inspired me to get hands-on with some headphones.
I recently got a pair of 60's. Very similar sound. A bit more veiled and a bit more boomy, but I'm sure the pads have a lot to do with it. I've ordered a couple of sets of cups from CABILLAS in Spain, so I'm anxiously waiting for them to arrive. Whenever they do, I'm going to quarter-mod the pads, vent the drivers, throw them into the cups, and then have dynamat on stand-by in case any damping is required.
I was hoping to upgrade the cable to silver, but it seems that the price has gone up to be a bit prohibitive. Does anyone else have any other cable recommendations (Mogami? Silver from an international source?)?
Are there any other major mods that I'm overlooking that would be worthwhile?
Really looking forward to this.
