Well, it's not just simply stuffing the wool felt in there. There is a methodology to all of this if you would like to get more clarity out of the ES10.   I kept thinking I couldn't do any more, and then I got curious again, so I opened the headphone up and shaved down the amount of dampening materials I used, and also tried out different placements. So both the quantity of the wool felt and the placement is important. You're dealing with a very limited amount of space...
The Pro has always been priced that low from what I can remember... so that's not really a special price.   On the other hand, a second-hand Premium 600 Ohm pair can be found for around $200 these days.
Yes, sir!
I was able to meet with Baronkatz briefly, but I'm still keeping this going. I'd love to meet people and start getting feedbacks because those are important for me to continue tuning my headphones. My ears are not the most reliable after all. After every meet, my modded gears keep improving... as I try to take comments into account, and also because I get to hear new things, so it's all a very valuable experience for me. So let's make this happen!! Glad to have you on...
 Well, I only have "after" photos now. I forgot to take photos of the internals before the modifications. But sure, I can try to post some instructions and a list of what to purchase to dampen the ear cups. Now I'm itching to compare my W1000 to the L3000...
 Well, you have somehow gotten your wish. I'll put that DT770 up for sale soon. Reasons below:  Yeah, my mod is simply to open up some holes in the W1000. I wanted to verify the results before writing down impressions... But I didn't expect this: I'm selling off ALL of my other headphones to keep just the W1000. To my ears, my modded pair is just so far ahead of my other headphones that it's not even funny. And the W1000 with a darker sound and more bass is pure perfection...
Reopening listing. After much deliberation, I have decided to let these go again.   I've also dropped the price to sweeten the deal for anyone looking for that ultimate portable headphone.
The Continental is a tube amplifier, I don't think anything (except for another tube amp) would have a similar sound signature.   I have heard the Continental versus ALO National, and there is just no comparison. The Continental is simply ALO's best portable amp IMO. I suspect that if the ALO Island is anything like the National, then the Continental would effortlessly outclass it.   In some cases, it's not just about power, but the quality of it.   So you can...
 If you are looking for a portable amp for the DT880, I would say... hunt down the ALO Continental V2 at any cost. It has enough power to drive the 600 Ohm version to ear-splitting levels even in a loud meet environment, and the sound is just the exact compliment that the DT880 needs: more midrange, just right bass, and smoothed out, a bit more subdued high frequency with a huge soundstage.
 Actually, I agree with the other poster. Most dynamics sound better than orthos. Even where vocals are concerned. I have yet to hear any ortho beat any Audio Technica headphone at vocals. Even top-end electrostats like the SR-009 have a hard time beating the vocals of dynamics headphones. Where faster response is required, such as with rock and metal, orthos may be a good solution, but some dynamics can be tuned to be good with rock and metal. Then there's the matter of...
