Only like 2 in the USA, unfortunately (neither is for sale), and I don't feel like running the blockade for it (essentially sneaking it in then applying for a Show and Display waiver, both expensive and risky). Maybe I will when they hit the 25 year mark. One thing I've considered is buying several cars like that while they're lower in price, storing them in a garage in the UK, then shipping them here once they reach the age where the ban no longer affects them.

I used to modify speakers back in the day, building subs and playing around with enclosure and port tuning. But with headphones it all started with the damned T50RP, I mutilated a few sets until I finally came up with a set of mods that suited me. Then using that experience I try various methods I've learned on other headphones; if they sound boomy I add some damping, if the mids are honky I add more space between the driver and the ear, if treble is too bright add some...
