I have a pair of Grado GS-1000's that need to be recabled. The cable has apparently shorted within the y-connector. Only one side would play. I split the cable open and basically bi-passed the y (and very crudely) just to make sure that is where the short was and also that the driver was okay. I've contacted forza audioworks and also moon audio for a recable quote. Both are pretty expensive. Almost as much as I have in the headphones themselves. I'm also waiting on a response from Grado for the repair. I've been told Grado charges about $150 to recable these headphones. To further my dilemma, there is a small crack in the cup next to the driver. I think it would be very risky to remove the driver because of this crack. Crack is shown in the photograph below on the left side. So....any advice? Should I just clip the stock cables at the outside of the cups and solder a new cable with some sort of heat shrink? Thanks in advance.
