Before I entered the NYU Silver Center for my Elements of Music class today, I hung my Grado SR60s around my neck. When I got to class, I noticed one of my earpads had fallen off. I let off a pretty audible, "ah fuck." I ran around the room and hallways franticly looking for the missing piece, but I simply couldn't find it. I then sulked for the rest of class. Fortunately, the classroom has a pair of Polk Audio RTi10s which beat any pair of regular classroom in ceiling speakers.
Today is a sad day in my life. I know I can buy new earpads, but I must take time with this wounded hand (because it likes to heal). I stopped by In Living Stereo to see if they carried Grado earpads but they didn't. Oddly, I did notice that one of the employees working there was the same one who helped me with my Grados when I bought them at Sound by Singer.
