DIY tutorial to upgrade your Grado Headphones
Here is a step by step tutorial to upgrade your low-end, <$100 Grado headphones (e.g., SR60e) to a high-end, $400+ Alessandro Music Pro.
This is the SR60 headphone which you can buy from ebay in $60~80.
Step 1, take off cups from the headband and remove the cushion
Step 2, take the drivers with sleeves out of the old shell
Step 3, Install the drivers with sleeves into the new wood cups
Step 4, glue the drivers with sleeves and install back to the headband
Final step, repeat step 2-4 on both sides and done!

The wood cups
- This is an empty headphone shell without drivers. It can NOT be used directly like ordinary earphones you may purchased elsewhere.
- Enjoy yourself but please proceed with caution in your own DIY project! Any modification to the shell or its accessories would make you lose our post-sale support or refund.
Ear pads (sponge cushions)
We offer 3 types of cushions: type G, S and L. Type G is a solid circle and type S is a hollow circle as illustrated below.
