Aluminum rodblocks set for Grado - Slim satin beadblasted

This slim rodblocks set for Grado has been CNC machined and hand crafted from high quality aluminum (PA6) and applied with a satin beadblast finish.

The set comprises of two slim rodblocks that improve the comfort, durability and looks of your Grado headphones greatly, while weighting nearly as little as stock plastic parts.
Each rodblock have been CNC milled from a single block of aluminum (to ensure exceptional durability) and fitted with three pressure screws – two to control the rod movement ease and smoothness and one to keep the headband firmly in place and to prevent it from falling out.

Thanks to the pressure screws the user has complete freedom over the rod movement in their headphones. They allow precise vertical and horizontal adjustment and guarantee that once adjusted the cups will stay in the desired position, so you can say goodbye to freely rotating cups that keep on twisting the cables – with these gimbals, cups will only rotate when and how you want them to improving headphones’ stability on your head, and thus the listening comfort greatly.
On top of all that, they weight pretty much the same as stock, plastic rodblocks.

Both rodblocks have been beadblasted to achieve a satin finish.

The set is a significant improvement compared to the stock parts in terms of comfort, durability and looks, while maintaining a low weight. And works well with all Grado headphones and should be compatible with majority of the mods.

Each set comes with allen key and set of spare screws.

You can also buy it in bundle with our Hardened spring steel band, that also fits stock Grado rodblocks, as well as stock plastic and leather headbands and most aftermarket leather headbands.

It is a 100% made in EU product. To ensure highest quality those parts are crafted entirely in my workshop, checked and tested for couple of days before we ship them to a lucky buyer – because of that it takes around a week for us to prepare and send them after the order is made. Please do bear in mind that even though we do our best and improve our methods and products with every batch, this is still a DIY product done in a home workshop, given that each set of parts is slightly different (almost exclusively in terms of looks) and subject to very minor imperfections (like tiny scratches or dents, mostly in hardly visible spots). We take customer satisfaction very seriously, so if there's ever anything (and I mean anything) you'd like to talk about regarding your purchase, we'll be very happy to help.

Please also note that even though set may be presented on the pictures together with other parts, i.e. Nhoord drivers, earpads, cups, cable, and a headband, you are obviously only ordering and paying for the rodblocks, the rest is not included! :)

If you're in Canada or USA I recommend Global express shipping option since USPS and Canada Post turned off tracking international registered mail from Poland for customers for some reason, they still track it internally, so parcels don't get lost, but they can take up to 6 weeks to be delivered, while global express is fully tracked and takes less than 2 weeks to reach USA or Canada.
