Tonight I conceded to the fact that I wasn't going to get the amount of money I really wanted for my RS2i's in the FS forums... so I took them back out of their box, pulled the bowls off them and was considering a re-cabe and refinish project on them. (the poor finish really drives me nuts). I notice that the glue was ever so slightly pulled away from one of the drivers, so I gently push in on the driver and all of the glue snaps free ... so I try the same on the other driver and the same thing happens ... Reluctantly I start to pull and prod at the glue with my fingernails, and it starts pulling out around the driver like a string. I'm thinking this is WAY too good to be true! (I've seen the butchered RS series Grados on this forums over the years).
I suppose I'm one of the luckiest Grado RS owners EVER!! 20 minutes later, they are both apart and with ZERO damage
Now, the questions begin....
What should I re-cable them with that won't degrade their overall performance?
Any advice from other successful refinishing of Grado cups?
I REALLY want to re-paint the grills since they are missing black paint in a few places.
Do I risk any of the other "Billa mods" on such expensive headphones? (I wish they had a tad more bass punch)
Thanks in advance for any advice. -Mark
