    post your grado mods....

    Did a bit of modding over the past few weekends on my old pair of SR-60i. Vented the drivers with 3 holes, bluetack on the back of the drivers. New metal grille set in place and dampened with more bluetack. Accessory House headband and Dekoni Nuggets on the gimbals (inspired by the Koss...

    Review by 'Hicks' on item 'Live Wire Solutions HA04 4-Channel Headphone Amplifier'

    I was looking for something more than the typical CMOY solutions and decided to give one the one of the cheaper "professional" solutions a shot.  Much to my surprise, this amp provided more than adequate power on even the most demanding, dynamic tracks that I tried.  For a basic, no frills...

    KOSS PortaPro 25th Anniversary Edition [Photos + Review]

    Picked up a pair last night from Best Buy as well. I must say I'm quite pleased with them. Listening to some Bjork right now. It's a very full, rich sound. Pretty comfortable too.

    Pretty surprising $50 amp.

    I've been looking for a good, no frills amp lately to use with my Denon D2000s. I had been using a CMOY happily for a while, but it does tend to start clipping at higher volumes. I noticed this especially on tracks that had a great dynamic range (opera, choral, jazz.) This was a problem for both...

    Help! My first set!

    I can't speak for the sound quality of the AD900, but I will say something about the comfort. I used to have the AD700, which are made the same way, and they were quite painful to wear. I have been told it is because my head is rather small. I'm not trying to dissuade you from them, but I...

    D2000 Impressions So Far

    Congratulations on your purchase. I love my D200s. I can't speak for more expensive amps, but I can say that even a cheap cmoy was an improvement over my macbook's headphone out. I noticed on the title track of Avro Part's Te Deum the low end was distortig a good bit. The cmoy took care of that...

    ATH-AD700 Uncomfortable...what instead?

    I appreciate all the suggestions on how to make them more comfortable. I should have made myself clearer, I no longer have the AD700s. Sorry about the confusion.

    ATH-AD700 Uncomfortable...what instead?

    Thanks for the tip runswithaliens. I may try that, though I'm more inclined to try something else. I'd rather not break them in the attempt and ruin them completely. 1Time, sorry, I just realized I never answered your question about equipment. I currently listen to FLAC from either my...

    ATH-AD700 Uncomfortable...what instead?

    I both turned the pads and placed the headphones in a different way. 1Time, the pads will kind of spin in place if you carefully turn them. Too bad I didn't see your post before my purchase. As I said, all the threads I saw spoke only of their comfort So far that's two for the HD555. May...

    ATH-AD700 Uncomfortable...what instead?

    Hello everyone, I've been a lurker for a while and this is my first post. I apologize if this has been covered, but all the searches I've done seemed to turn up the opposite results. I find the AD700s uncomfortable, in fact downright painful. Every search and thread I read about them before...
