Thanks, I haven't really gotten around to importing my Classic Rock, being that I listen too a lot of Jazz music. I usually listen too the Classic Rock on my my Cd player, but I'm going to import it all too my MBP.

For those of you who are following this conversation, the Sony V6 (or 7506) is are probably one of the best bet you could get for a portable Grado sound. The bass is definitely fuller then any Grado, but it's a closed can. The Sony does have the very honest, natural flavor we come to know and love though!

Thanks posting that up, JoeDoe!

Been looking for a NICE set of the vintage RS1 for some little time, and at a decent price point.

 

And I have a nephew that I will give that Dot to, as his intro to tubing.

 

SCHWEET!

good to know it(rs1) went to someone who will appreciate it, and the LD will go to someone starting the journey ! nice job DM !!

Too much good music to be into all of it, but that's a great live recording.

i was playing with an old set of senn 437's (the modding went too far LOL now they are broken) and then turned my attention to my rs1...decided i hadn't given the taped bowl mod enough listening time.

 

a couple albums in (and a lot of tape with a/b testing, taping one bowl and reversing L/R channels, etc) i've decided i like it.  enough that i'm going to pick up another set of bowls and do some sort of permanent taping (silicon maybe?) to have the change available.  it does cut out some air and close in the stage a tiny bit

 

for those grado fans that haven't taped their bowls yet, give it a shot and a good listen, it's not a huge change and the increase in bass/fullness does cut out some air, but with a good range of test songs you may like it....and tape is cheap and comes right off the bowls no problem (i used scotch tape which doesn't stick too much)

Tried it.  Didn't get it.  But then, I don't get a lot of things.:D

Same here the tape mod wasn't for me, flat pads got me the kind of bass I wanted. Still have to try G cush pads.

love tape on the 225, do not the rs1, like flats, L's, G's on the rs1,    my $.02

post #13137 of 18039

Yeah I want to try some G's at some point. I'm in the process of modding my MPX3 so for now my budget is tied into it, but in a few weeks I think I'll buy a pair of G's to see what the fuss is about.

post #13138 of 18039

Don't everybody just wish all headphones could swap out pads as fast and easy as Grado ?

 

What a simple an easy solution they have.

 

Some companies make it a real PITA

G-cushions on my RS1i's work really well especially when I listen to them thru my home stereo system. I get a big soundstage. The bass response drops off a bit so I adjust the EQ on my receiver/power amp until I get a good mix.

This is a hobby community so of course people are going to mod their headphones! When you go on a car forum you see custom builds all over. We even have a very good DIY forum on head-fi where you can see very talented people make their own amps, dacs, headphones, even IEMs, all in the pursuit of better sound, and I think that's pretty great :D

 

Putting wooden cups on SR325i is still blasphemy though. :D 

 

 

Another satisfied tubes + grados customer... Welcome to the club :D

Is putting inner woodies on a pair of 325is a blasphemy?

 

 

So guys I've been trying to decide whether I should get woodie outer, inners, both or neither (cups/shells) for my 325is. I love them but I also love the appeal/sound quality of wooden cups. Any and all input is much obliged!! Also: what wood should I try out?
