SR60-Mod - Page 334  

post #4996 of 5003

I have a very cheap soldering iron, I think 40W, tin melt normal cost me a little, but with my carding is easy. If I had to buy one would soldaor adjustable temperature, sell it on ebay for 30 , I think. Excessive temperature may irreversibly damage the drivers, I do not ever happened but I know some. It's simple, but you must be fast and accurate.
Moreover dismounted the 325 yesterday from a friend to change their plastic piece and I found a big surprise. I do not know because there are no pictures of that or I did not see them. The interior of this is covered with plastic to !!!!!!!!
Today I am going to see a carpenter to make a piece of wood that covers the entire interior. Pieces of wood I saw did not cover all this, no?.
Inside is a plastic ring that supports the rack like the 225, I'll take today.
The good news is that the sound will improve much more and that when they return to Madrid, my friend can compare with a HF-2, and we counted.
I will put process photos.

Btw, I know Cabillas used to liberate drivers from the back and Bila liberates from the front...which one is better?

I've thought about trying the sock mod. Unless I'm misremembering there's some debate as to how to effectively do it without distorting the sound (I recall reading that it 'darkened' the overall tone quite a bit). Will definitely try it if I can get these kinda results though-- these things just sing.

 

I've seen a lot of pics and read the articles on Headwize. Any other tips/references come to mind?

PayPal checked. Refund confirmed. Thanks for the swift resolve with my issue Bill.

 

I'm keeping tabs on the missing cups thread, so if you guys were on the limbo list and there is anything (as in, you sorted yourselves out with Bill) to be updated, please post there.

I trimmed my pads to the minimum, thus reducing transducer distance by as much as possible. The closeness brought some better kick to the bass, but it got muddy. So I reigned in the sound with some cotton socks. They're actually dress socks, so they don't distort as much as regular cotton socks. They wrap just enough to tighten the bass and add additional comfort, without creating distortion up high. But then again, my cans are sr225's, so the extension up high may be why, as when compared to the sr60, 80, 125, I can tolerate darkening my sound a bit.

P.S. They look pretty cool too.

Part of me really wants to see you go through with the woodying phase so I think not only should you get your cans back, but I think we should put some cash in to get you some of Marty's cans! I'm a starving who does recables for fun (I'll ask for donations from people from this thread) and not for profit, but if this thread is up by the time my financial aids for college comes in, I'd love to throw you a few bucks to get it done! Head-Fi members are known for reaching out and your situation really hits hard and I feel that you should get some restitution for it! I harbor no harsh feelings towards Bila, since his contributions far outweigh his liabilities. For christ's sake I spent 300 bucks on ALO cabled SR-225's back in the day because of him! Let just all be grateful that things are going to come back to normal in due time and just celebrate Grados and Grado modding!

 

I hope you listen to your SR-225's for hours when you get them and hopefully this hasn't set you back from modding Grados!

Thanks guys! I really appreciate the thought of you even thinking about that!

But Bill PM'd today and said that he would ship the headphones out tomorrow morning through overnight delivery because I will be going back to Japan on Sunday.

And hopefully everything will turn out good and Bill will pull through.

But thanks again for even thinking about doing that.

Because the solder was of a different ratio - something, I just wanted to try.  It just so happened that the ratios of the one I wanted to try didn't have the rosin core.  Actually, the solder I picked up melts quite quickly with my 15W iron.  I was impressed.  My work was done in just a few minutes.

I'm sorry, but due to numerous breaches of the Head-Fi Terms of Service by various Members of the Trade (ie: basically using it for free advertising, possibly including people who SHOULD be marked as MOTs as they are modding for profit), I'm going to be closing this thread, and possibly later removing it from view.  I strongly suggest people interested in keeping any useful posts turn them into wiki/article entries quickly.  

 

Someone is welcome to start a new thread, of course.
