    I replace it with my Grado SR60, and I like it, I am not trying to copy as the original Grado look, but I like the look of the wood instead of the original hard plastic SR60.
    Thank you

    I’ve been listening to the new wood cups on Grado SR80e headphones. First impressions are that they are made well and look very nice. Only complaint i have is with the gimbals; they have very little retention with the factory plastic rodblocks. This causes the earcups to constantly slide off the headband which of course is annoying. A solution was to put a small dab of vasoline on the rods to create resistance but ultimately I purchased their “Headband and Bracket for Grado” kit. As for sound I did notice an ever-so-slightly warmer sound as well as an equal decrease in Grado’s notorious high frequencies. Overall its worth the price if fashion is important to you with the added benefit of a very slight sonic change.
