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. biggrin.gif

One song, and with nice smile on her face she gave me back my phones and told me that "Yes darling, they are nice". That's it? About a month I read reviews and listened both SR225 and SR325 several times before buying SR225 and I'm very happy with these cans. Obviously, my wife is more happy of the fact I don't read reviews that much anymore than she is with sound of headphones :) Well, cans are for me anyway, so better this way.

Hey guys, I just recently acquired a Wood Magnum V4 build. I was hoping to get some input from other Magnum V4 owners about this issue:

 

Sibilance. Okay, so I own the SR60i with L-Cush, and I love 'em. I even sold my SR225i's a while back in favor of the SR60i because the SR60i has much more realistic and tamed sibilance than the SR225i had. So, my first listen to the Magnum V4's was a shock. The sibilance on these is really really sharp. A/Bing my SR60i and the Magnums, the SR60i are far more pleasing simply because of this one issue. However, the bass and mids of the Magnum V4's are clearly better than the SR60i, but it doesn't matter in the long run when the sibilance is so glaring that you can't enjoy the bass and mids.

Anyone else have this issue with their Magnum V4's? Maybe I just got a bad pair of drivers =/

Never noticed any glaring sibilance with mine.  What wood are they made from?

Looks nice, Focker!

Thanks! I have to admit I'm pretty happy with Martin's design. I'm not even sure I will upgrade the headband since the GS1ks come with the nicer leather one,and quite frankly the headphones look damn near perfect as is. Had a GREAT experience watching Expendables 2 with them last night....

Honduran Mahogany. The sibilance is pretty bad.

It's definitely not normal, let Rhydon have a look at it.

 

The Magnum v4 drivers are well behaved, they should be smoother (/less sibilant) than most Grado's.

 

I don't think it would be caused by the Turbulent Labs cups. The two companies have a collaboration going on and they are aware of each other's product which should go pretty well together.

Could be upgrade frenzy time. MidWest Pro Sound and Lighting has 20% off everything (promo code TWENTYOFF), and according to someone in the head-fi deals thread, it works on Grados.

You are right. I didn't look at the date. But they still have it listed on their front page in the rotating ads.
