If the gold lettering is still fully there I think it was really worth it! cMoy also cost about 30-50 so it's good for you, those portable amps does the job well enough I think.

Grado will always repair their headphone, it will cost you like 25 dollars, even out of warranty.
I know there's less likely hood for higher end cans to be tinkered with by a previous owner but I don't like to take chances on these things =\
i guess I'll have to see about the grados once I receive them if the lettering is still intact. I already am getting a fiio e17 so I might sell the cmoy...

I'm listening to the equivalent of a Grado RA-1, which is a cMoy by itself.

 

SR325i was my second headphone on Head-Fi... I bought it on an impulse for 200 dollars (that's a good price, but lettering was fairly bad on it). I had plans to ask Symphones to make a Magnum out of it, but I liked it so much (with taped bowls) that I chose to leave it be.

A silver or gold sharpie will restore your lettering and make the phones look brand new.  Very easy to apply!

Oh I did wondered about that in the beginning, but I had no idea which paint to use and if I needed to remove the lettered ring of plastic.

 

That's a very good idea I might try it! Thanks for telling me it

 

Have you tried the trick yourself? Do you have a picture of the results?

Is there a way to be kept informed about incoming events in and around Montreal?

 

I realize the last meet wasn't a success, but that doesn't mean we should kill all meets from now on. People come and go. I wasn't here back in September. I was busy with finding my way trough a new CEGEP. biggrin.gif

 

And then there are commercial shows, which I suppose are other events worth attending. Will there be other such shows this summer? Or did I miss them?

Salon Son & Image 2012 is the first I get to hear of and read about on Head-Fi, that is happening in Montréal. But there should be a lot more of those Hi-Fi events, considering the size of the city. Still I fear that those events will never revolve as much around headphones (not snob enough? lol) as we could make our own meets ourselves that would (revolve around headphones), just like Montrealers and students like KillerCrush, Larryminator & Co. did in 2007-08-09, here, and which we still have photos of in respective threads of the meets.

 

No special way to be informed about it Kim, other than subscribing to the Local Meets forum and posting in a thread if you can find one, about a meet in Montréal. But we should definitely try to organize one ourselves, even if it doesn't end up being huge... I'm eager to try for gear and speak to people about headphones, lol.

 

I'm definitely equipped to show off some stuff also. Although, I ended up returning to my hometown this summer; which is very much the last time actually, but I needed that pause, so no meet for me for now.
