Check out the MS1000 thread. Your build matches it rather closely (recessed cups, etc). You might be missing some vent holes in the cups...

Man I need to get a set of jumbo "g" pads! I really want to try them out on my build!! They look so comfortable.

I agree.

The drivers are liberated and recessed in the cups, with felt on the walls in front, leading to jumbo pads. Suggestions are much appreciated.




Maybe the use of a tube headphone amp?

Just picked up a pair of SR60i's yesterday. Ordered a bunch of re-cabling supplies, and I'm 3D printing new cups.

Nice. I just wonder how would a large baffle sounds.

i read over the ms1000 thread and decided to add another layer of felt to the inside of the recessed areas as well as a cloth in front of the drivers. really made the difference. i'm really happy with the results. i'm going to make another set of cups, without the recess, and see how that works out with another set of sr80i drivers. thank you for the advice.

Is there any easy way to liberate the drivers in the Px100 ii's? All I've done so far is remove the headband. I'm not really sure how to remove the plastic housing that surrounds the drivers themselves

 

EDIT: Nevermind! A small amount of prying on the back and they came right off. Not even a need for heat!

So I finished wiring the drivers and putting them in their cups this morning and they sound pretty fantastic for slower music or acoustic guitar and piano and more mellow stuff. When listening to metal they seem to be pretty slow and flabby sounding though. I'm hoping some burn in time will clear this up pretty quickly though! Also, using g cush pads so maybe l pads or something with a little less room would help. Anybody else experience similar results from the Px100-ii? I'm also going to go buy some dynamat for the magnets in hopes that that will help

Headphones for Jim smily_headphones1.gif. He got himself a pair of SR80i and within a week he asked me to woody them for him with a pair of cups he had made:



You can't see it, but they have pretty awesome cable courtesy of fellow head-fier wje.

I cannibalized a cheap eBay headphone for the headband (frame and wire hanger), then glued up some fabric as a replacement for my Grado SR80

 

Also took the opportunity to mod the cables to single sided, as well as recolour the grilles.
