Excuse the duplicate post from the ortho thread, but I need a bit of information today.     I wonder if anyone can help me...   I'm at my father's home turning cups and baffles for my Thunderpants, but stupidly I didn't bring the T50RPs with me. I need to know the distance between the copper tubes of the headband (center to center) and if possible the diameter of the tubes to that I can make wooden fittings for the headband.   Hopefully someone has this...

It was great to hear so many fabulous headphones.   For me with the gear on the day the LCD-2 was by far the best headphone there, including the O2, which didn't bring it's reputed magic to the table (but undoubtedly with far from the best gear driving it). I wouldn't say I like the Sigma pros more than the Aiwas, rather I like them about equally - both very good and neither could touch the LCD-2, although with O2 pads on the LCD-2 it is quite similar to the Aiwas... I...
Kabeer, what I have is attached to my ridiculously-cheep-but-stupidly-good-considering dynamic (I know, boo - hiss) headphones of which I spoke to you. You'll hear them.
Hi Kabeer, I got a sheet of medium copper mesh from these guys:   http://stores.ebay.co.uk/MeshCompany   They seem to not have it in stock now but I'm using it for cups, it's very acoustically transparent, but a bit on the soft side, it can be cut easily with scissors and molded on a former to make proper cups if you like, perhaps there's another option there that would be as transparent and be more rigid (and more in stock).
There were Cyrus' in the US, they seem to go for a fair bit more than they do in the UK though - I've seen a Cyrus1 for $250ish. In the UK the Cyrus 1s are really cheap and there's a fairly constant stream of them on eBay, they seem to go for as little as £60 up to about £100, Cyrus 2s go for a bit more, the sought after ones are the Cyrus 2s with external PSUs which go for upwards (sometimes way upwards) of about £120, PSUs on their own can go for over £100, and...
W-11 pads? Interesting. About a third of the price of O2 pads too...
What I really like about the cable is that when you get it over your ear it holds its position really well. Microphonics are not too bad for me. Not bad at all. The cable needs rolling up for storage because it is prone to tangle, perhaps more than typical.
The 'larger model' is presumably the HE-6 anounced here:   http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/491517/camjam-2010-hifiman-new-product
I've just bought some headphones from Faust2D / Dmitriy and it's been an easy and happy transaction in every way. I'm really happy to recommend him as someone to buy from or sell to.
