I think there's a person on Ebay who makes adapters that mount onto existing plastic Grado cups and allow you to utilize the grey velour pads from Beyerdynamic.  Being that HifiMan has released the offering of their Focus pads, I think it would be interesting to see how they might be able to integrate into the Senn Grado configuration.   As I mentioned, I didn't feel that any bass was really lost at all.  The setup the guy sells on Ebay runs about $90 with the Beyerdynamic pads.

 

I'm now curious how the Focus pads would work with a StratoKosster closed headphone configuration.  That's the general direction my compass is pointing, just not sure exactly where I'll land.

...let me know your inclination and give me an idea of the diameter of the pad. I am in the middle of woodying some DT220 for someone, but might have a minute to try either a closed or open version of the cup with an exaggerated lip, depending on what you want smily_headphones1.gif. I owe you.

Didn't you try using an adapter with beyerdynamic pads with a grado headphone last year and didn't like it?

Although with closed cups it would be a different story.

I had Jim make a solid wood version of the Beyer cup, and put some Grado drivers in them. It was nice, but the solid body and the pads muted them a little...he made a hollowed out version later, and they were better. I need to keep experimenting with them...I am wondering if a smaller cup with a wide lip will sound better.
