Someone must start a "Grado Modders Go X" thread!
I thought turbulent labs were licensed to use magnum v drivers? Are they a v8 variant?
Concur, the new Turbulent Labs X definitely do look like the Symphones Magnum V8! Exactly so except for the V8 engraving that is!
I have no idea but maybe some of the others might know.
Hi, Jin from Turbulent Labs here. Our driver is manufactured and tuned by Symphones for us. Cheers
Good day, we appreciate the response. Cheers and respects.
Does that mean tuned as a V7, or tuned as a V8?
Neither, the driver is tuned exclusively for us and is an update on our previous X drivers circa 2012.
Hope that helps.
I am considering attempting my first build, and of course the drivers are the first consideration. These threads here on head-fi are a valuable place to read about what differences people hear between the different drivers. Unfortunately, I am unable to find anything describing your drivers, so I don't know what sound characteristics you are wanting to tune towards. Is there anyway you can describe what you are shooting towards? More laid-back? More technical? Bright Grado-type sound?
Hi, I haven't been active on Head-fi for a couple of years now due to studies.
I just started posting again and have reread the Member of trade rules; sorry but I would not be able to comment on the differences or the description of the sound signature without breaking the rules. That said I am looking forward to reviews from head-fiers. Thanks for all the support.
OK - that makes sense.
It is great to have you here giving the support you can.
So as they are different than the Magnums who is going to start the new "Grado Modders Go Turbulent X" thread?
New thread titled: "Grado Modders Go Turbulent X"
I picked up a SR80e recently and wanted to improve the bass impact and warmth a bit, so I went with taped L cushions plus the venting mod (four holes poked for a total of six) and wow! I think four might be one hole too many, the upper bass can overshadow things a bit in some songs but overall I really like it. Impressive what these drivers are capable of!
using dynamat around the vented holes can tighten up the bass a touch and solve some of the "muddiness". i also like to throw some on the back of the driver too.
