Hi guys, I like the sound of these so much, that I'm looking to upgrade to an RS1i or HF2.

It's a Grado SR225 modded by Headphile. They have Paduak wood cups and BlackMax cable - 6 feet, 1/8" terminated. Retail, the Headphile mods cost ~$300 and the headphones ~$200.

Two small issues:

1. There are two nicks in one of the wood cups - see pics below.

2. The cap for the locking rods are missing. I never bothered getting new ones because the rods still sit firmly w/o the caps... but it shouldn't be a problem to get new caps.

Of course, none of this affects the SQ/comfort at all. The bowls, drivers, headband, etc, are all in great condition.

Edit: Decided to try on eBay, see link below, auction ends 10/4
