Grado SR60 problem & advice

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My trusty 9 year old Grado SR60 headphones have developed a rattling in the right earpiece, it sounds like the cone is struggling as the music is distorted.

 

I contacted Grado, they told me I can pay £35 to get them repaired.  They said they would fit new drivers.  Would they use identical drivers or some new-fangled inferior driver?

 

I enjoy the SR60's sound, so should I get them repaired, or are there any new headphones on the block for around £35 that perform similarly?

 

Thanks in advance

No I tried that to no avail, it does seem like the driver is damaged.  What are people's thoughts to my first post question?

Sounds like a dying driver.

They'll probably put in SR60i drivers, the newer bottom-end drivers. Which IMO sound better/clearer than the old SR60 ones, but retain the same flavour.
