Hey all. Bought my first pair of sr-80's and am very impressed with their stock capabilities. I am, however, unaccustomed to to such a clear high frequency range and of course the slightly perceived lack of low end. My question. Do the mods make enough of a difference in these areas to justify opening up a new set of phones. I'm not nervous of doing the job, but will the results justify voiding the warranty? Any help would be appreciated.
Try bowl pads. They will improve the sound of your your 80s
This. Replacing the comfies with the bowls should be the first 'mod' anyone with a low-end Grado tries: increases clarity and soundstage, and tightens the bass. Doing this made me realise just how good my MS1s really are!
