ACK!!! just remembered have to finish the laundry so I have clothes for work tomorrow...
Need a longer cable so I can get to the laundry room...
The RS1 are VERY touchy to open up to change screens. I wouldn't trust anyone to open them up but Grado. They have the experience to unglue the drivers and get to the screens. IME even the experienced modders don't mess with RS1...
There are some people on these forums that will mess with ANYTHING. If they will mess with an HD800, they will mess with anything!
Excellent choice! Congrats :)
It can all be resumed in one word, respect.
I bought my SR80i for when i'm sitting at my computer, because i find that their lightweight and their flat pads are more comfortable to wear at the end of the day, when i remove my contact lenses and put my glasses back on. But ever since i've listened to them with the L-cush, it bugs me, because now, i know what i'm missing with the comfies.
Regarding the PS1Ks, you are so happy with your PS500, that the bar is set very high for the PS1K, so i hope that you won't be disapointed, i know i'm not.
Yessir...the PS1ks will truly have to impress, but I'm excited to give them the opportunity one of these days!
That's the cheesecloth! I would NOT remove that. It keeps dust, hair, dissolved ear pads and other undesirables from getting into your drivers.
and speaking of cheesecloth , the ms2's i bought(used) had the cheesecloth removed, and the screens are not affixed, glued to the driver housing, right now the pads just hold the screens in place, i assume(not always a good thing) i could just replace the cheesecloth and reglue
the screens in place, but i thought it wise to ask first before i just start gluing stuff together !! lol
I would email Grado and ask the cost to replace and then go from there.
If you really want to do it yourself, maybe Grado will send you some cheese cloth.
Grado readily send me parts (gimbals, buttons, rod blocks) to replace broken ones.
You can also ask on the Grado modification threads...
I absolutely love my prestige 225&325's. great detailed studio/recording and good on even the cheapest amp. I actually may prefer my cheap hp amp compared to hi end amps interestingly enough . . . .
Some of my favorite uses for my Grados - even my PS500s - are to plug them directly into my laptop or Kindle Fire. And many of us use one of the most inexpensive amps on the market - the Little Dot I+ - and have no desire at all to upgrade. That's one of the most attractive aspects of being a Grado fan...if you don't want to drop big money on an amp, you don't need to in order to get fantastic sound.
