    Quote:   Hi Dennnic, welcome to Head-fi, sorry for your wallet.   These threads might be of interest to you too and perhaps more suited for your question:   Post your Grado mods   The Official Grado 325i Owners Club   p.s. Are you Northern European by any chance?

    Quote:   That was me indeed!   After a brief search, I found something interesting on instructables, scroll down to see the guts of a remote.   http://www.instructables.com/id/iPod-Inline-Remote/#step1     The remote seems to be quite simple, one wire for the mic, one for...

    Quote:   Taking calls is great and the remote is really good to have too.. pause, skip and volume adjustments, picking up calls without removing the phone from my pocket is really nice. Also the short and thin wires are good for portable use. Can't wait for my Vibro cups to arrive...

    Quote: What's the pilot look and how did I make it official? I had the choice between the 'i' cups or these, I prefer the old cups too, especially since these cans are for portable use, the smaller cup is more practical.

    REVIEW: Qinpu Q-2 and A-3 Amplifiers and V-5 Speakers

    I've had the Q-2 for a while now and have been using it as my headphone amp mainly for my Grado's and AKG K400,. I recently acquired an AKG K1000 that I have been running from the headphone output once in a while, but have been considering running it from the speaker outputs. Will this make any...

    Custom Earphones in 4 Minutes

    Interesting concept. Doesn't look like they go in a s deep as a more traditional custom would, also offering less sound attenuation. Here is a link to a video done by the BBC showing the process:   http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/click_online/9675963.stm

    2011 Meet in the Netherlands: March 27th, Soest!

    I can do it for you, it isn't too difficult, and it won't damage any parts such as the metal badges. I've done two sets, one with elastics I got from a friendly head-fier, the other is set in place with those ties you use for garbage bags I'll bring my set to the meet too, I believe there are...

    @ Proglover: If a location is set, I'd be able to take the two of you, although I am currently driving a tiny car, it will fit as long as you aren't tall and you can remove your legs temporarily ;)

      Quote:   I sold my MS1i and bought a new MS1, mostly because it's more compact (arrived today; dang you customs and service charges). After burn-in, I'm venting! . If I muster up the courage, I'll be modding my 325i after that, I'm curious how the ring affects the sound. Either way...

    AKG K340 Electrostatic Phones

    Recently acquired a K340 with box. Box is in a right state, but the cans are 99% mint! These are my first non-Grado cans, completely different sound; unfortunately my cheapo amps don't do my cans much justice. My Bravo hybrid comes closest to driving the 340, but considering their condition I'm...
