    Joe Grado's new earpads for the HP1000

    They are $60 a pair, or I should say they were. Yesterday I was informed by Joe that he only offers them with the upgrade now sadly.

    Joe Grado's new earpads for the HP1000

    Sorry for resurrecting this old thread, but does anyone want to buy in on a batch of at least 4 or more sets of these? I had the opportunity to speak with Joe recently and because of the work that goes into making these he would prefer to create a bunch at a time if needed.

    Next upgrade

    I'm looking for the next big thing to upgrade. Like my sig says I have an emu 0404(computer as source) to a glite(without psu), and using mostly the rs1 and 650s. I'm in a bit of a pickle as to what to throw my money at now, I'm leaning towards a cardas upgrade for the 650s, but whether that...

    HD580 & HF-1, looking for a new sound

    Thanks for the replies. The 501 definitely sounds like a worthy buy. Is there a site like but without the flat rate of one cd per month? *Slightly offtopic but where can I order 'upgrade' parts for the 580 like new grills, cables and pads without calling Sennheiser directly?

    Pondering new amp for the 580s

    Hello, my setup is 0404 > Headsave Classic (Mini) > 580s. I'm wondering if a Gilmore Lite would be that much better than my current Mini amp. Other than that I'm pretty set on keeping the 0404 as my source for a couple years yet. Thanks in advance!

    Buying Grados in Canada?

    Thank you for all the replies. I've been looking at the MS1 today and it does seem like a better deal than the SR60 considering I might also be able to get a friend to ship it across. The Alessandro site says "Buy Online Now and receive a 25% Discount PLUS Free Shipping". Is that 25% of $99 or...

    Grado pad types - clearing up

    My question is, what pads are on Grados nowadays? I'm looking to expand from my 580s over to a comparable quality Grado can. I heard stories that stock models only come in comfies instead of bowls now, is that true? What pads does Allesandro use? Coming from a pair of wireless RCA headphones I...

    0404 R/L channels in L speaker

    Actually this makes a little sense, it's just a little mind boggling to think about. So for my amp to go straight into the card I'm looking at something like this? Which plugs into 2 of these...

    0404 R/L channels in L speaker

    Like the problem states, I'm getting both L and R channels through my left speaker (Altec 2.1 setup). My amp is an HS Classic, and the same problem also occurs when I plug my 580s into it. Also, switching the plugs around into the card still showed both L/R in the left speaker. This is what I'm...

    Do you mean the Gilmore Lite Dynamic @ ? I think you already have me sold on the 0404 If the Gilmore sounds good with Senns I might go with that too.

    MINT/Tempo with 580's

    How much juice does the Headsave MINT give the 580's compared to the Tempo? I like how the MINT can be used for portables if need be, but if Tempo or even MiniMe is a major improvement on it I might just go with one of those. My 580's are hooked up to a Revo so I think there is a lot more...

    HD-580's sound leak request

    I'm still a little erky on how much the HD-580's leak sound, although sadly it is impossible for me to try them out before I order them. Is it possible that someone could set up how much sound comes out of them from 1 meter away at at a couple different volumes?

    HD-497's and MINT

    I plan to order the HD-497's from I'm not sure where to get them in Canada, although I might give a call before I make my decision. I've never had a headphone amplifier before so I'm looking at starting with the MINT. It will be used primarily for my...
