I've been planning to go test out some Grados (likely the SR225 and 325) at a local store, and hopefully purchase one if I like it. But the SennGrado mod caught my eye. I've never done any modding before on headphones, but this mod seems easy; just put the PX100 II drivers in the cups, and attach the headband and brackets. From what I can see, I could probably get a headband for ~$20, the PX100 II for about $30-$40, and the Vibro Classic Cups for $80, making my total around $140. My questions are:
-Is it possible to make the SennGrado for ~$140?
-Could someone with no experience in modding make these?
-How does the sound compare to the SR225 and the 325?
-What kind of sound do they have in general?
-Would these be good for mainly rock and metal?
-Which pads should I use with these?
-Which cups should I use for these?
I'll likely try out the Grado SR225 and 325 before I make my decision, but it would be great to know some more about them. I would love to get the SQ of a $200-$300 headphone with $140 and a small amount of work. Thanks to anyone who can help answer any of these questions.
