Hello, I had the Jmoney V2 band on originally, which was fine but it always felt a little uncomfortable & loose so I ordered the new LCD-2 leather band with yokes and played around with it. I ended up leaving on the Grado rods & putting a little tape around them (to protect & widen them slightly). The Audeze guide has grommet screws -which IMO the Grados really should have (& metal instead of plastic would be great as well, esp considering the price), the Grommets allow the rods to be fixed firmly in place, although they need to be loosened to be adjusted- a small price to pay. Also they don't turn, which eliminates the cable twisting.
Most importantly, they sit more comfortably & feel firmer on my head. The tape looks a bit half-assed but I'll eventually source some small bolts for the base of the Audeze rods & use them instead- will just have to bend the plate where the guide attaches to the headband to stop the cups splaying straight out (the Grado rods are angled where the Audeze rods are straight). After considering many options, this seems to have worked out well, there's no permanent changes to the PS-1000 and I can enjoy their sound just that little bit better.
Anyway, I hope doing this isn't too sacrilegious but I though it might be worth sharing for anyone else who has a similar view on the comfort of these otherwise amazing sounding cans- cheers!
