Do you guys think the Grado 15ft / 4,5(and then some)meter extension cord would actually be a good purchase? Thinking of picking one up from a local fair as a little bit more movability around the room could be useful.

I actually have 2 of them and couldn't be happier with them. I think for the price you cant beat it.

I know that for a while, there were commercial options for distancers, do they still exist?

 

Unfortunately I have no idea.  I was going to go down the MS1 >> MS1000 track at one stage - then I got lost in the standard Grado mod thread, and ended up with my own little Grado nirvana ..... 325i with Cabillas fwj, Headphone Lounge headband, home-made Canare recable, and a couple of other tweaks.  Basically cured any desire I had to pursue the MS1000 idea wink.gif.

I think it is well worth having, I use it with my Grados and haven't noticed any changes in sound & increased mobility is nice.

I bought a cheaper one off Amazon, I find no reduction in sound quality, but it is quite stiff. It was also ~$10, so I suppose it was worth it. If you're interested, it's by a company called Planet Waves, is made extremely well, and has gold-plated connectors. Again, my only complaint is that it is stiff.

Anything with low capacitance should sound fine, including Cat5.

I only recabled because the original cable was starting to kink out of shape at the V joint - because of the 360 deg rotation of the cups I guess.  I used canare starquad mini - which is quite stiff - and it's totally solved that issue.  I also shortened it - because I do use the 325is portably sometimes (if I know I'm going to be in a peaceful/quiet ambient area - eg early morning walks).

 

To me it made zero difference sonically.  I'm not a cable believer for anything other than aesthetics / better usability.

For what it's worth, I have two of the Grado extension cables, as well....they work great...solid build.

+1 on the Grado extension cable. Very well put together - same cabling that the RS-1i have them on, just longer and as an extension. smily_headphones1.gif

Don't know what to do with my sr80i...keep it to use when travelling, give it to someone as a gift, buy a vibro cup to give it some life....I've been using the sr325i mostly...I wouldn't sell the little sr80i cause it would be cheap, I replaced the plastic grid by a mesh from sink strainers and it's not looking that good (great ideas)...

I am very sad right now...  (Can`t you see my face? )  biggrin.gif

 

 

1000

 

I just exchanged my SR325is to this one....  So far i need to burn it in.  There is something with the RS1i that is a bit piercing to the ear on some vocals that the SR325is does not have... I will burn it in for a week and see if this is will change...
