The Grado wiring *is* good quality (in the world of wire, heavy and thick is not a bad thing) and *is* wired properly...
Anyways, you will not get over the twisting (it's how the gimbals are setup - the cups can rotate freely in either direction and it doesn't matter what they're wired with - if you store the headphones in a reasonable manner and don't thrash them around, it generally isn't a problem, but if you're prone to just "chucking" your gear around, they're likely to become tangled), and if Grado feels "cheap" to you, I'd just move on to another manufacturer (and I'm sure there's plenty of "poor saps" who'd gladly take such a terrible pair of headphones off your hands
). Personal preference and all that...Edited by obobskivich - 4/7/13 at 7:13pm
