Fiio makes such a device, I think it costs around $30.

Is it possible that my ms2is are having problems? For the most part  songs seem to be coming out of the right channel moreso than the left channel and its not always noticeable but when it is, it kills me on the inside. When I listen to my dt990 600ohm, the issue does not seem to appear(are they more forgiving than the ms2i?).... I am trying to figure out if I need to send my babies in for repair or maybe recable or maybe there is nothing wrong(hopefully) and its just the tracks that I listen to

 

fyi when it is that way, the music sounds like its in the right side of my head as opposed to at the ear or centralized... if that makes any sense

If you contact Grado I am sure they will look at them and repair, if required, for a very fair price. Their customer service is very good. Send them an email, with details, and they will advise you what to do.  info@gradolabs.com

I do have a ms2i and my right side always seems to be softer and there is static noise if i move my head too much. When I shake the headphone, the right side seems like there is something that is not fitting tightly. I wanted to send in for service but Alessandro did not response to my email at all. I decided to take it apart to take a look if there is some soldering cold joint or something not fitted tightly.

 

I use the hair dryer method to remove it and all the wire seems properly done so I shake it and see what is loose inside. I then found out it was the button magnet so i try by pushing it back to it's position and listen it again. Now, the sound is balance both side and no more having the static noise. On further examine, the magnet where hold onto the speaker using glue so I mix some epoxy and apply it the same way Grado did in factory. Done, dry and I have fixed the problem myself.

Had a good read of the 'Battle Of the Flagships' mass-review that DavidMahler did recently.

It's a shame he didn't like the PS1000s a whole lot, the redeeming factors being the soundstage and detail, but he did not enjoy the mids at all which is worrying. The RS1s faired better however.

He also described it as one of his "go-to headphones for casual listening".

Here's a shot of my PS500's with the LD I+ that I just received. It's a fantastic combo!!

They were very expensive, but well worth it. They really upped the feel of quality of the headphones overall.

Forgive me if this has been posted before, but is that the Headphone Lounge headband? I'm considering one for my PS-500, mostly because I think the Brown Manta on offer there would look great with the silver of the PS-500. I can see a few of the other mods, but would you mind listing what you've done?

 

Thanks!

It is the headphone lounge headband, and the rest of the headband assembly is from Martin Custom Audio, including the metal headband insert. I simply put that together, and moved the earcups over from the original Grado headband assembly, so I can change them back to stock in minutes.

Do you  happen to know if the headband insert is the exact same size as the stock? Or longer?

It is almost identical in length. He ships it flat and you bend it yourself.
