The inner opening is identical in size. The pads are almost as thick as the cups, a solid 4-500% thicker than the stock pads, but my stock pads are flattened to hell. I didn't actually seal them to the baffle with tape; I assume this will increase bass and decrease treble even more. However, I am tempted to cut out the speaker cloth/foam on the inside of these, as it might be what's ruining the upper ranges. Maybe its worth it... but on the other hand they did sound nice...
1: Sansui SS-100   --Stunning. Perfect. Flawless. Holy sht. Treble. Subbass. Lucid midrange. Amazing resolution. Transparency. Soundstage depth. Oh my God. Staying forever. Christ, my earlobes hurt.    2: Pioneer Monitor 10-II (Highly modified)   --More bass. Less treble. More isolation. Less clarity. More width. Less ear bleeding. Good, not amazing. Really only staying for when I need some isloation at home and/or don't want ear-blood all over my...

Sold.
These are now for sale. Bump.
Selling my Portapro. These adorable little cans are legendary. Easily the best buy below $100 and comparable to many in the $200 range, especially if you're looking for a portable. I do enjoy these headphones quite a lot but I need something with more isolation (or rather, any isolation at all) in order to protect my hearing at work.Condition is very very good, no noticeable signs of wear. 100% functional, only used occasionally and only owned for a few months. I'll...
a person whose opinion I trust absolutely adores them and she has like... every vintage headphone worth mentioning so >___>
