These are a crappy cellphone picture of my Magnums...Sorry about the pic quality, it really isn't doing this work of art justice.
This is my second pair of Grados. I have a pair of SR60is that I really like.
Compared to my modded Fostex T50RPs, these headphones sound quite different. They are not as neutral as the T50RPs, but they are a very fun sounding, very dynamic headphone. I
definitely like to use these when I want to enjoy my music. These have sounded excellent for every genre. They do not sound like traditional Grados in my opinion. However, they are definitely
one of the best valued headphones when you have put together everything.
Shoutout to Taiden of Vibro Labs for the magnificent cups. I have his Vintage Vibro IVs. Shoutout to Chris_Himself o Headphone Lounge for the cables. Great guys to work with. Excellent
communication, and they put their customers first, which is always nice to see.
I currently am using a Sony headband. They do require quite a bit of modding in order to fit the cups. You need to use a hair dryer/head gun on the gimbals, and close them enough
to fit the diameter of the cups. Also, you need to either sand down the pins or use the heatshrink method previously described.
Sorry again for the picture quality...Between the Magnums and the Fostex T50RPs, I think I have settled down for quite some time. These two are in my opinion two of the best bargains available.
Edit: I am currently driving these from a O2 + ODAC combo. They sound fantastic! No hint of sibilance or harshness at all.
