Its easy, back side just pops out, its press fitted, no screws. But drivers are attached to frame and  connections are also soldered to headband.

It's a scary sight.

Thats why they dont get much playtime.

 

 

BMF had opened them up, not sure if he managed to put it back or transplant it.

I found some Creative Soundbalster pads that will work on them I think but not sure about putting them on top of the stock pads, or somehow opening them up and removing the good condition stock pads.

Stock pads are not easy to remove, I guess they are glued. Front magnet assembly is also in baffle. Cups are just press fitted on back side.

Hey it's not a GREQ-PMB 8 uber glossy puffy fancy thing, but it does the trick:gs1000smile: 

That's because you're not a show-off! :evil:

Very tidy job though, looks like it's always been part of it.

I wish, I did bid on it but to no avail , also I fell alseep before it ended.

 

 

So what's the deal here nobody doing any mods at all lately?

Am I the only one with 6 or 7 lined up waiting to get tackled? Please  say it isn't so ( shared suffering and all that )

 

I want to see this thread hit the 2,000,000 views mark.

Get on it!
Pictures, impressions, new finds, thoughts etc.

 

Well I'll add another picture here. I just finished duplicating the Echo TDS-16 mod for a pal and will send it out soon.  Replaced a broken headband clip, and replaced the stock hard as rock headband with softer but not too soft double layered Buffalo Hide one. See also the aftermarket nice pads in action there. Same profile and opening as stock, infinitely more comfortable and the sound suffers not.

 

Super easy to do and FAST simply "watching  the paint dry ' as they say.

 

I took two sections of the leather and applied 2 coats of industrial strength contact cement to the backsides, one piece was slightly longer so when they were cut to shape  where they attach at the sliders was only one layer thick in that exact spot otherwise it would not slide properly.

Went for a walk between coats drying ~ 10-15 minutes each time.

Next carefully laid down one on top of the other and used the rubber roller like you use when bonding contact cement and wood veneer to set the two tightly.

 

Then a sharp exacto hobby knife cut an even taper from the center points to the part that gets screwed in. Get a nice new blade and make clean cuts it s like a factory build.

Cut 4 tiny slits so the screws would go through, screwed it in and blammo. Done.  This thing is not floppy , but it is also not hard it is extremely comfortable.

 

 I bet someone could rig up something like this for the T50 very easily, and any other HP-1/ HP-2 etc that was hurting. Contact cement will also let you add thin wire ( or other like plastic strips embedded in the edges ) reinforcements, inside before you bond the sides or even on the outside if you are careful about applying it ( obviously you need to apply it to both parts or it does not work, and no "overspray" application , pretend it's a colouring book or something stay in the lines)

 

It doesn't flop around, and if you had wider join points at the ends it would be even better, very  very very comfortable.

Here is the fast attack process on this

^ Rubber roller, bonded leather sides before cutting to shape with the single layer edges, stock ridiculously hard vinyl band (  which at one time even had foam in there pretty sure )

I did two at once so the uncut one there is for my modded set.:beerchug:

In fact, I happen to have a magnetobeyer just under construction :

 

 

Those are PMB6 drivers.

Sounds like a German X-man. 

post #23541 of 23549

I know, I know...wanted to name him a BeyerBanshee, but that would imply an unwanted resonance in the treble. :beyersmile:

post #23542 of 23549

Magnetobeyer sounds like a 1940's creation:beerchug:.

 

Can you let us know what the surrounding white baffle areas do to the sound please. Do the white areas completely vent to the  earside?

 Are you going to try to cover them temporarily , and then also uncover them to see the difference?

  Those are going to be nice.

I thought it was the latest X Men character myself. Walking L Rad and all.

L rad , had a line on some plans for one of those.

 Change the name to "Magnet-obeyer"

I actually own this one.

 

^ This is what some of my first mods were like :bigsmile_face:

LOL! Who Are the other 3?

post #23549 of 23549

I found the first mods were good for shaking out the recessed multiple personalities, as seen on the cover as the "Other 3"

Cymatics therapy :)
