    post your grado mods....

    Does anyone here own G-cushion pads (preferably still in perfect shape) and could measure out the exact dimensions of them, as accurately as possible? I can't seem to find that info anywhere. The exact dimensions I'm talking about are in the picture, looking at the pad from a profile: Thanks!

    Why the Beats Hate?

    The whole "beats suck" thing was blown way out of proportion even back when they weren't really all that good, truthfully they were never as HORRIBLE as some people made them out to be, they were just very overpriced at first, but the 2nd and especially the 3rd generations of Studio's and Solo's...

    Grado Modders Go Ypsilon (Elleven Acoustica drivers and builds thread)

    Hey guys, I have a question not directly related to the Ypsilon driver, but the filter that should be in front of the driver. I'm talking about that totally transparent fabric that can be stretched over the front of the driver and block the holes, so that dust or hair doesn't fall in. Does any...

    Just a question...are the new S2 and R1 drivers slightly thinner than the first version?  They're 46x8 mm right? Old was 46x9mm if I'm correct.

    Oh yeaah, let us know how the R1 compares to regular ones as soon as possible. :P

        Can you compare the overall sound to any other headphones? Where would you rank them....like under 500, 500-1000 or over 1000 dollar category?

      I presume this means they have great bass extension and punch as well, since most 90's music was dependent on that? :P

    What amplifier to get around 100 dollars?

        Yes, there is no point in amplifying a signal that comes out of a bad sounding source. You'll make it louder of course, but that's about it. On top of it, you'll 99% certainly have ground loop issues, as is almost always the case when connecting low end sound cards to external...

    What amplifier to get around 100 dollars?

          If gaming is important to you, then get a sound card.  Something like the Asus Essence ST or STX will do a FAR better job at powering those headphones than any external entry level amplifier anywhere near the price will. You can get used cards like that for far less than 100€, and...

    What amplifier to get around 100 dollars?

          MF V-Can 2 and Project Headbox S are both great amps for the money, nothing wrong with them, it's just that almost nobody in the US heard of them let alone used them.

    Beyerdynamic DT 1990 PRO - Beyer's open-back mastering headphone

        You've been sleeping for the past few weeks, haven't you...? :P   Those Focals have the most advanced drivers ever put inside a headphone, and most importantly, take a different (and right) direction in designing headphone drivers from ground up.  Their diameter is irrelevant, the design...

        Aren't they quite tricky in terms of the cable thickness? I was thinking about using them instead of mini-xlr too, but what bothers me is that I won't be able to solder a cable into them.

        Are those the hifiman connectors?

      You have to unscrew that plastic cover on the back of the baffle that you can see on the picture I posted, 4 screws. Carefully because the cable is glued in the hole that goes through that cover and there's very little slack on the wire inside, so if you pull it off, you might rip the PCB...

    Grado Modders Go Ypsilon (Elleven Acoustica drivers and builds thread)

        They're precised almost exactly the same (like half a pound more expensive for mk2) on the european spare parts store, so I doubt they're better, they just have a bigger baffle to fit inside the bigger cup on the mk2, hence the slightly higher price for a bit more plastic, but exactly same...
