  sooo tempting to have some fun with this    smeggy felt - just thick but dense felt initially used to damp the now extinct SFI drivers by our own ortho nut "Smeggy" who gave us the 'thunderpants' and opened the doors for all further T50rp mods including Mr Speakers Mad/Alpha Dog and LFF's Paradox. It is a thick natural fibre felt pad ( not unlike old carpet underfelt )    "yellow biscuit" , this is not what happened to the Blues Brother's Rubber biscuit after a...
No big secret as to how I modded them , but I don't remember :). I know they went through several iterations as most modding goes and they have not been touched for a good ~ 6 years. I will dig about my files and let you know.    The biggest challenge I have had with these is to disassemble the cups to make them dual entry. My personal pair was one of the first I had come across and it is still single entry but I replaced all the wiring.    as for vintage and comfort....
still love my HP50A , pressure on the ears are the only issue I have after an hour or so of listening. But oh so worth it for the enjoyment..dB
A little late to the party - picked up a bug and only just got round to building this little gadget.            came up perfectly and just needs the end plates drilled / cut.    I will have to test it with the ODAC tomorrow. None of the dacs I have at home will likely see much benefit    Thanks TomB and A_A   ..dB
 The glass is my personal favourite of any amp with the HD800

My highlight - I know this is old but seriously just getting to meet up with all the people I have been virtually communicating with for the past few years and 'shoot the breeze'  From a musical perspective - LFF's CodeX and Enigma - just fantastic  Purrin's OB speakers - the "night before" party didn't really show them off as well as the set up at the meet. The fun part at the meet was sitting on a wheeled chair and changing positions to see how this impacted playback...
 and here i thought it had to do with looking for a comfy spot for the MOTHs I spent some time up in the sanctuary listening to these. The first time was with a track i have heard so much recently that I know it by heart - the eagles Hotel California ( Hell freezes Over ) , that kick bass comes in and ..... well balanced bass. This is just wrong , that track is meant to have an overblown bass intro. I keep listening and things are more familiar with a few other tracks and...
I haven't stuffed my board yet - ended up going to the Bay area meet which was just magnificent. Planning on getting it done in the next day or so , looking forward to seeing how this impacts the O2.    and thanks for the xtra bits TomB - I didn't even think to check ( which is a major fail on my part - this is how we catch tired brain phenomenon ) 
You should be able to fix this with conductive ink patch and not much loss in fidelity
