So I am trying to combine 2 of my favorite things to do.. watch movies and workout on my elliptical machine. Its an hour a day that I want to not think about work.
Right now, I have a pair of Grado RS1's hooked up to Musical Fidelity X-Can v2 amp which is connected RCA stereo to a headphone out jack on the back of the TV (using a Monster conversion cable RCA stereo to headphone jack). The Direct TV box only has optical Out.
The problem I have is the Grados use a black sponge ear pad that when it gets wet, starts to deteriorate and comes off on my ears.
I was wondering if there are Grado pads made of leather or rubber or some type of water resistant material? I guess I could always go to a Bowers & Wilkins C5 In-Ear Headphones or something like that? or maybe go to a HiFi Man He400 or He500 that would have a synthetic ear pad?
I am also wondering if there is a product to convert the Coax digital out to RCA stereo to feed my Musical Fidelity X-Can v2 amp?
Looking at various areas to improve the sound....
