Grado Driver Repair

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I was doing a recable mod to my sr60i's I bought last week (I know, a bit early) but I seem to have melted this white glue on there. The whole pcb came up when I tried to solder the wires back on completely and I'm not sure what to do. I'm fairly sure the driver is fine, but I have no idea how, or even if this can be fixed. Any insight on what this white stuff is or if I can fix it?

I've already replaced the grills and they didn't break on their own, so I'm pretty sure I can't send them in to grado under warranty. 

 

links to pics since I can't embed (warning: very sloppy work)

The driver in image "8O1rY" is destroyed.

 

Nope, no warranty. Wait for a set to come up used, or ask Grado what they charge to fix (replace) them as a non-warranty issue. 

 

For what its worth - the world goes fappity fappity fap fap over cables, but cables don't do anything. I never understood what was wrong with the SR-60. Slap some TTVJ Flats on them (older SR-60 no idea how current production SR-60 work with flats), and rock out.

Ah okay. Thanks for the help. I think I'll just wait for a used pair. 

It was using the stock cable, I took off the rubber and braided it like in the link to that other thread. 

Since my portapros have had a broken jack for so long I just put the cable on there.
