Grado PS1000 "Rod Block" Slippage Problem

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I may have posted this already, but is there a cheap and easy way to fix slippage on the PS1000? I like to configure the earcups in the smallest possible configuration with rodblocks flush against the earcups. However, the left block keeps sliding up as I listen and as a result the driver sits lower on my ear than I would like. I have to cinch it back up every once in a while. Apparently there is not enough friction.

 

I have tried regular and double sided scotch tape above the rod block to no avail, the tape just seems to slide up with the block. I have not tried electrical tape yet.

 

Is there a way to fix this? The right block seems fine but the left slips no matter what I do.

 

Edit, I wish there was some kind of clamp or rubber thing that would lock it in place but I have no idea what to get.

The smallest wire strap fastened tight and trimmed afterwards will work. You'll be able to move it without using the screwdriver while the drivers won't slip down .

Thanks for that great Mod Armand Hammer! The collar you linked to is no longer available but there's another with the same dimensions.

+1 for the wire strap (zip tie).  After a while the weight of the metal cups in 325 Grados seems to wear out the rubber bushings in the rod blocks. The quick/easy fix are wire straps or zip ties. You really need to tighten on the rod, remove, cinch down one more click and then squeeze back on the rod. Cheap, light and strong. That's a rare combo - ask any experienced cyclist or auto racer!
