iGrado Modification

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello everybody


I have a pair of iGrado which have been broken for some time. It was the weak wiring who broke, and I fixed that with some other and stronger wiring. But I didn't do the job good enough course it broke after a few month.

Now I want to fix them once more, but this time for good. I have also decided to plant a jack stick inside the headphone, I now that it will have affect the sound quality a bit but I'm using them for running so it's fine.


But my question for you guys is about the modifications you are talking about in other forums. I'm talking about the so called quarter mod?! 


What is that? What does it do? Can you please tell me and show pictures if possible? 


I apologize on behave if this is a topic which have been discuss several times on this site and my English (from Denmark).

For someone who registered back in 2009, you sure don't post much :)


A quarter mod refers to the mod on Grado flat pad. Place an U.S. quarter ($0.25) coin on the center of the pad and cut a hole following the edge so you can get a quarter size hole, then put the pad back onto the headphone and you are done. In case you have problem getting a, U.S. quarter, an EU $1 coin is about the same size.


Not my picture, but here you go.



For other mod idea, read this.

Thank you for your reply, it was very helpfull.


Yeah I registered at the time I was looking for a pair of headphones and I found this site and thought that it would be a good idea to register so if I had some questions about headphones I knew where to ask :) And the time for that was 2 years later :)


But this mod will give me a better sound experience?

Okay, I have completed my own form for modification on my iGrados.


take a look at my pictures and see for yourself, I have been running with them and the positives is that I don't have the long wire, better sound than the in-ear I used before (or the sound quality is changed, my Sennheisser in-ear is also very good but irritating to have on while running). 


Now I can choose for myself which lenght of wire I want, and what quality.
