Grado modders go Magnum - Page 189

post #2821 of 3231

Anyone here wanting to sell their wood magnums? Kind of want to try magnums drivers in wood.

Yeah, for whatever reason, I'm pretty confident that it is not 8 conductor.

I vaguely remember someone complaining about it ages ago.


I could totally be wrong. But, I don't think I am ;-)

Yeah, I don't think Grado changed the extension cable when they came out with the 8-conductor pipe for the better cans.

Deal Alert!

 

If someone is going to be doing a Magnum build and are in need of a headband, the Sony 7506 band is padded and a great headband to pair up with the wooden cups.  Now, here is where the sweet deal comes in for residents within North America.  Trew Audio, which sells that headband, has free UPS Ground shipping through 9/22/2013.  This makes the total cost only $19.99.  When I've ordered a band from them in the past, I paid about $11.00 in shipping.  So, the free ground shipping is a sweet deal!

If you look at the upper right corner of the screen, you'll see the information on the free shipping.

Between copper vs silver, is there a huge different in term of sound quality ...... What are the criteria in getting one over the other ...

It just occurred to me, I ordered a few days back, but didn't receive a order or shipping confirmation.  I think this time, I checked out as a guest and before I may have had an account.  Those forgotten passwords!  I'll see what happens over the next few days.

 

On the other hand, I also placed an order from Parts Express.  Another odd order this time around.  I was too lazy to get the password reset, but then checked my PayPal for the order number.  I contacted them and they provided the tracking number and the response from them indicated it was shipped on Tuesday.  However, when I checked the USPS site, only the shipping request was received and it actually didn't physically hit the postal system until Thursday.  I guess I'll need to put in a few days of lead time for my orders.  The Magnum 3.5s arrive tomorrow, but I guess I'll have to borrow the Alessandro headband until the Sony arrives.

 

But, it'll be OK.

I'm looking for a tutorial on disassembling Magnums. My left driver isn't working and I'd like to check for a detached cable, etc....Thanks..

I contacted Trew Audio since I didn't receive a confirmation via E-mail.  They gave me the tracking number and indicated it was delivered early this afternoon.  I ordered the Sony 7506 band on Wednesday and received it today.  Sweet!

 

Now, I have enough to push ahead with the Magnum 3.5 build this weekend.  Happy, Happy. Joy, Joy.

Thank you for the link.....Will this be safe to use on aluminum cups and wooden chambers? I wonder if this is too risky for someone like myself who has no experience working on headphones....Heh, I picture at least, the plastic forks that connect the cups to the headband melting.
