Got the Martin Custom Audio gimbals and rodblocks installed on the GS1ks. Pics don't really do them justice since they have similar styling to the stock ones, but they are very nice. These are clearly fabricated with tremendous precision, and the work is very impressive. I will order the new headband from Headphone Lounge here shortly, and at that point they'll be all spiffy and beautiful. Well, they already are that....but perhaps just a bit more comfortable. Well...they already are comfortable...screw it, you guys know what I mean.
I know some people will ask if the Martin stuff is worth the money. It just depends on your preferences, of course, but if you're like me and you have no problem paying for quality, even if it's not something you NEED, then yeah, they're worth it. I love the mini-screw assembly on the rodblocks that make it very easy to switch out and secure the headband, as well as keep the rods more secure within the blocks. That was getting a bit annoying to me cause with the stock stuff the cups would twist around like a teacup ride at the carnival, which would make a mess of the cables. That problem has been solved.
Anyway, here's a quick pic...I'll take a better one once the headband is swapped out with the new one.
I can take a quick pictures of your Grados for free. Just ship it over here.
Don't worry, I will send the cushion back.
