Hey I found this great deal on Ebay and I wanted to get these for myself, but I live in Canada and I don't want to bid to ship them to the US and then to Canada, so I'm letting them to you.

I am good for finding deals

Oooh! Those are the rare ones with the black screens!

The narrow headband of course, and perhaps gravity has taken control of the right adjuster.

....and is that a photo artifact, or is the right cable horribly twisted?

Actually; the word "rare" here can be a bit misleading. What usually happens is when Grado is pumping out a bunch of Alessandros with specific Alessandro trim pieces, if they run out of Alessandro units; they'll just pop in some Grado parts. In some instances they've even used a few upgraded pieces to replace what they don't have. Used to be the MS2i and SR-325i had a mid-sized width headband exclusive to the aluminum cans only; but now it appears that all cans from aluminum upwards gets the wider band.

Nah; I didn't buy them. I was just bein' silly and reporting on the auction if anyone else was interested.

If the price would have stayed down around $150 I might have considered it. It may have been fun to have one of each; black and silver. I can eat Raman and Mac and Cheese a bit longer. But when it got up to almost full price the fun went right out of it.

yeah, and maybe if F107plus5 could get his hands on some wood grain patterned contact paper, he could have his lusted-after MS-Pros real cheap.
