I was using the L cush but found the upper notes were not very well defined so I threw on my G cushions and Wow! The sound really opened up and the highs came back to life. They have a nice solid bass. For some music I have to turn off my e12a bass boast as I fear my ear drums might vibrate out of my head :L3000: Sorry the pictures are out of order. Look around for your PX100II drivers as they range from $27-$110. We lucked out and found 2 sets in the discount bin at Staples for $27 ea. So for around $150 a set my son and I have 2 very nice original headphones. Mine are super light and with the G cushions on they are so comfortable! I haven't tried mine with the S cushions yet but If its a huge difference I'll post it. Thanks again 7keys for all your help and the fantastic job you did on our cups.

 

 

* So I tried the "S" cushions on my Senngrado's and they also sound really good and are very comfortable. The "L" cushions rob them of the highs which is probably why I like them best on my Grado 325i's. So for Senngrado I would recommend the "G" or "S" Cushions.

 

 

Yep I also find G-cush pads to work best with my SG.  Nice pics and builds!!

Bruce, where do you buy the Sony headband?

Is Pomo.......Porn for Audiophiles? 

That's a shame (Pono availability in Canada). I have seen a post by Neil on the Pono Community stating they are pushing to get a store opened up there.

The headband, you have to buy the whole can to get. Usually I find them for cheap on Amazon. The trick is, it's slightly smaller than the Grado gimbal, so your cup has to be smaller as well. Makes it a little trickier to turn, but not terrible.

 

I actually want the Sony 7506 headband, I just thought whoever sold you that headband might have the whole lineup of replacement parts.

Not yet...they are brand new to the site. Looks like they are made for use with the Vibrolabs cups as well...

 

When I make my cups I simply cut the seat to accommodate a Senn driver instead of a Grado one...

It's nice to see the SennGrado getting some attention. I think I might offer adapters with my cups. I've given them to a few members for free. 

 

Although the ones they sell you don't fully liberate the driver, you still use the plastic adapter they come with. It also looks like they might be protruding a bit. Although I think it's a good idea to help secure the driver.

My last few SennGraso builds I have been going the whole hog and simply hot-gluing the Senn driver into a seat made specifically for it (shallower than the seat I usually make for a Grado driver). Works nicely...I can see the value in making the cup able to switch between Grado and Senn Drivers though...would be nice to be "convertible" smily_headphones1.gif

...did a collab with @cCasper TFG and this was what came of it:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They are Marblewood (hideously tough, fibrous stuff...my chisels took a bit of a beating) cut similarly to a GS1000 style Grado cup with a wider pad lip to accommodate Beyer pads. Cables were by cCasper TFG, and are removable (mini-XLR). One is terminated for balanced operation, the other to a 1/4 inch plug.

LMAO...not sure about being a brand name...cCasper does awesome pictures though. Haven't listened to them yet. Should be back with me in a few days. His impressions are positive so far.
