OK, might as well have a memorial brew from Dogfish to go along with it. Anyone that enjoys Mr Johnson's music will note the reference to 2 songs on the label, "Hellhound On My Trail" and the hilarious "Traveling Riverside Blues".

Oh, I didn't know you were talking about the driver holes…I thought you meant the holes had something to do with disassembly/assembly, and the glue. :confused_face(1):

Got my first set of Grados weekend, the Sr60i. Right out the box, they sounded harsh but after a couple of hours of burn in, they sound pretty damn good. My only complaint is that they feel fragile. I keep thinking I'm about to break them.

With normal usage they will most certainly last years. Enjoy biggrin.gif

Congratulations! There not fragile, they just feel this way due too the weight of them…just take care of them, and try not too let the cups rotate 360 degrees, and they'll be fine, enjoy them!

this...(the biggest mistake i made...ruined my SR80i and will ruin my SR325is)

 - if u can, exchange the gimbals with something which doesn't rotate

 

and look whether your gimbals are properly glued - sometimes they aren't

 

...anyway as you live in the US, it is easy for you to request spare parts.

I don't understand how to "ruin" Grados by rotating the cups 360. If one gets turned around a time or two, I can see the "V" twisting and turn it back before wearing.

The two(or more) wires within the black rubber cable will twist/untwist in ways the universe can't quite grasp.

I managed to undo this damage by massaging the cable on my PS1000, and my RS1 gladly doesn't have this (yet)

My old set of 225's lasted a very long time but the cable did eventually go bad and I had to send them in to be recabled (they replaced the drivers too). It was at least 8 years before that happened though. Only costs like $45, which is a lot less than a set of cables for my HD600's cost and they did all the work.

Thanks for all the info everybody.

Really cheap for a driver and cable replacement (almost the entire headphone).

My SR80i cable broke after 2 years of use.
I mainly use headphones before i fall asleep and then fall asleep with them on (VERY bad habit). That is NOT recommended, especially with Grados.
I try to avoid doing that now or only use the SR80i for that purpose.

I received the Bitfrost Uber this morning! I can't wait too listen to it tonight, I hope I hear a nice difference initially and after some burn-in!

post #14473 of 18796

Congrats! The BF Uber is superb but does take a long time to break in and smooth out.  Your patience will be rewarded.

BTW, Ive left my Meridian 203 DAC powered on for almost 25yrs with no issues at all. Do you leave your Bitfrost powered on all the time?
