Cantilever is supposed to bend at the bottom, but it's straight.

What!! :(

That seams to be non existent QC.. like you said.

 

Grado say that the test them and approximately 15% of the production run will get to be green. That is for 1 and maybe also the new 2 models also..

 

Appears not be true if they do that for the 2 models.. Maybe the demand is so high for black that they maybe do not test them at all?

Hope all will be solved for the best!

recently updated my phone situation to an iPhone 8 Plus.  Which, of course, comes with the opportunity to dive into the world of portable headphone amp/dacs.

 

Ended up picking up a refurb Oppo HA-2SE.  It's kind of overkill for me but I liked the features and it does sound good in addition to being a beautiful piece of gear that is oddly satisfying to hold in your hand.

Recently tweaked/upgraded my headphone setup, since with 3 kids under 5, I mostly only have time to listen to headphones instead of my turntable setup.  

Audeze LCD 3 Fazor with Norne Audio balanced headphone cable

Massdrop x Cavalli Liquid Carbon X Amp

Gustard X20U Pro DAC

Kimber Kable PBJ balanced XLR interconnects

Onkyo DPX1A as DAP/transport

Cool looking setup. I just use the headphone out on my integrated, I'd be curious to compare it to something like this.

I just rescued this Garrard Lab 80 form Craigslist. It cost me $25 plus a new idler wheel and some serious cleaning and lubing. I'm kind of in love with it.

Sweet find!

 

For me the all-headphone set-up definitely sounds better than my integrated's headphone out, though not like miles and miles. This particular set up I like because it's designed to be balanced, and between the balanced amp and headphones, I definitely notice a difference from my Burson Conductor (again, not humongous but noticeable). I have yet to connect this headphone amp to the turntable that is connected to my integrated, and I might at some point but it would require moving around a lot of things. My set up is currently almost 5 feet high on top of my 4 x 4 Ikea shelf since that was one of the few flat surfaces available right now.
