about 10 years ago, i purchased my first quality set of headphones... the sr80s and i really love their "punchy character" I used them so much that the foam ear pieces started coming off in chunks about two years ago. i didnt know about the cheap 414 foam pieces at the time and was to cheap to spend $30 just to replace the foam. The started collecting dust, then i got a bluetooth enabled motorcycle helmet, that sounded terrible when streaming aerosmith. *lightbulb* I could jam the drivers from my grados into the helmet and actually enjoy music. What i failed to remember was the bluetooth module doesnt have the power to drive the grados
About a week ago , i got the headphone bug again I was able to dig up the left side driver, but the headband, cabling, etc is all gone. I figure i can mod this driver a bit and see what happens. Not much to lose :-)
I ordered 414 pad, 5ft Mogami cable, canare f12 connector. Going to do the quarter mod and punch ten holes in the back. For a headband im using a plantronics CS50 which is a single sided handband designed for wireless headset. It fits into the grado driver perfectly too. It should look mighty goofy, but gives me some practice for future endeavors
I cant seem to attach pictures yet. maybe when im done with project i will be able to.
