Or buzzy.

post #2687 of 5517

Its  2cm thick solid oak flooring, only thing i could find in the shed apart from a very nice chunk of red mahogany that im saving till i get better hole saws.

Havent had any buzzing or any issues with the sound apart from maybe some loss in detail over the 325 cups i had in but i assume that its just because it is less bright so not really a "loss" in detail but a different sound, warmer. I prefer it tbh but it is just a simple wood cup...only had a 2" and 3" hole saw so there is no "chamber" which i  assume would improve the sound. Still new to modding and do not have access to a lathe or anything like that so im making the best of it and having fun. Any tips are very welcome.

You can make some nice cups with just a few hole saws but you'll need more than 2" and 3".

but your doing great with what you have. 

 

Here are a few I've made with a few hole saws and a drill press. Oh......and many hours of sanding.

I used this guide first but then made a few adjustments.

I just ordered one of these headbands for $13 on eBay. For me this is a lot cheaper than the Sony headband, hope it's just as good.

It looks nicer in the pics.

Yes, but wouldn’t this be pieces of bamboo glued together like pressboard?

 

What kind of SQ do you get from glue?

How do you like the headband? I just got mine today and I dunno... Mixed feelings . The stiching is a bit off & is it symmetrical as in can it be flipped either way? It's also really tight so it's tough to get the metal to re-grab ... I'm thinking maybe I should glue it...

Contact Jin. He's extremely friendly and helpful. And the padding should face down, onto your head.
