Cool article. I like my Grados even more now.

Nice thread revival, Shawn.

Grado headphones have a design flaw in that they insist on cords that go from each rotating ear cup into a Y which makes the cord prone to severe twisting and eventual wear over time. I realized this after I purchased a pair of Alessandro headphones (they are made by Grado). The cord design is very poor and probably one of the reasons you don't see any other serious headphone manufactures go this route.

I have a pair of Grado SR60s at work. You're right about the cord design. The Y sits right below my neck and is pretty annoying. I often have to twist one of the cups around to get that part untwisted to it sits nicely.

Yeah. The more it twists the tighter the wires from the Y portion up are against that portion of the body which makes them more uncomfortable as well. It's not like the user is twisting the cups or wires on purpose, the headphone itself just has the propensity to do it which is the annoying thing.
