    Grado sr-80 mod to increase bass?

    Hello all, I was sifting through the sr-60 mod project thread thats been bobbling around.  On page 17, someone mentioned they did a "6 hole mod" that drastically improved the bass.  I saw a DIY page with a whole bunch of Grado mods, but I didn't see anything there.  I think maybe the mod is the...

    help for Mods for Sr80?

    Salutations head-fi'ers, I was curious if you could help me out with modding my Sr80's, I'm quite the noob (as you can see my first post...) but I've put together a list of equipment that should be suitable for this kind of thing. I've gained a good amount of knowledge what to do and how to do...

    Is there a good way to remove the plastic mesh from the SR-80 cup? and secure the replacement?

    I finally took the plunge and steamed my sr-80's open.  I found everything on the inside to be as I expected, except that I had a terrible time getting the plastic mesh off.  In the interest of not damaging the plastic cup, I tried to be careful.  The glue did not seem to melt, and I ended up...

    Tritrix vs Grado/Alessandro headphones

    I know this seems like a random comparison, but how do Parts Express' TriTrix speakers compare to Grado headphones (specifically the SR-80 and Alessandro MS-1) in terms of sound quality (detail, bass, midrange, overall sound quality, etc)?   Thanks!

    So this is my first post so Hi, Everyone!!     I recently had gotten a pair of Grado SR-80 headphones.  Needless to say, I was very impressed with them considering the price being only $100.  However, I decided to sell them because I wanted something a little more portable.  I basically...

    What I think... GS1000 vs RS1 vs RS2... and vs SR80.

    Yup, I've been listening to a lot of Grados... I've finally acquired all the Grados that I wanted to hear, listened to them, and compared them side by side. Now I'm writing about them as I wanted to give something back to the head-fi community. Hope someone found this useful. RS2, GS1000...

    I've been looking far and wide for a nice pair of headphones. It started off with a blurb in a magazine about how great the SR60s were. After 2 years of research, looking at IEMs, Noise Cancelling Closed Cans, and everything in between, I've finally decided to just settle for the best entry...

    What exactly are the Alessandro MS1s?

    I have read a bunch of post about the MS1s being modified Grados. And many opinions about the sound quality and where they fall in on the Grado heaphones scale. But what I want to know is; what are they really? Are they modified SR80s, SR125s or etc.? Not speculations or opinions, but maybe...
