imagine the discount grado gets by buying in bulk. probably buys them for $2 a set......oh that's right, they're hand made and laboured over for days in a brooklyn basement not bought in bulk from china despite evidence such as pallet receits and common sense suggesting that is the fact and no evidence to the contrary. Someone should buy a set and slap them in some cups. Change the thickness of the felt pad and degaus the magnet to taste. If it's decent, then we can fine tune the cups to them
there doesn't appear to be a minimum order on that driver set ! nice find leviticus. If they sound good we can start a new thread and maybe convince the maker to even tweek it a bit for us. Talk about DIY grassroots people power ! Imagine an upper midFi grado style phone made by the people for the people for $100 . That's the stuff dreams are made of.
Its always nice to save a buck or hundreds and do something yourself, its just like the t50, look what a $70 headphone has turned into. Paradox and pdox slants selling for 700? Magnum builds selling for 300 and up, eventhough i do agree magnum drivers are "overpriced". But they were the only alternative, now it seems, they may have some big competition. Since my magnum build hasnt yeilded the results i had hoped for, Im going to more than likely sell mine but keep the extra parts and start buying some of these cheap drivers to tinker with. We need more of this here, and its really growing, I love it. Now we need another cheap planar to tinker with as well, although thats a little tougher than a dynamic to mod. Good to see thelostMIDrange and wje back in here. Been reading their findings for a long time and have a ton of respect for the likes of you two and guys like BMF. We all owe you folks a few rounds!
