Input on what? This is a thread from the end of 2014. It seems like people gave you some recommendations. Perhaps it's best if you provide a progress report on where you are at three months later instead of just bumping the thread smily_headphones1.gif

Very well,I decided to just mod my grado sr-60e,I vented it 4 more holes and dampened it with foam behind the button and with felt around the inside of the cup,but just now I took the cup entirely off and just duck taped and hot glued the driver to the headband.it sounds awesome.do you think without the cup the driver could easily get damaged

Wait, so the drivers are floating freely now, without an enclosure?

There's not the part of the cup with the grill.

So, yeah. Just drivers now. Or do you still have part of the enclosure and the earpads?

 

Either way, I can't imagine that this doesn't wreak havoc on the sound. If you have any chance to make a comparison between this mod and a stock pair of the same headphone, as well an HD600 or other neutral reference, if possible, I think you would find that this mod is less beneficial to the sound than you hear it right now.

 

Of course, I can't say that in absolute terms. Perhaps these really do sound better to you. But, I'd check back and forth a few times to make sure.

It has the part that actually holds the driver and it has pads,and I just listened to the stock pair right before I did the mod it defiantly sounds better.

Well, if it makes you happy, I'm certainly not going to argue.

 

You're a braver person than I am, though, that's for sure.

Did you not mod yours?

I don't own Grado. The tonal balance is not to my liking.

Know if I would call them next level above the 325. To get the next level above that you have to spend upwards of $500.
