I am battling a little as my drill's depth range is a tad shallow....this means moving the wood every bloody time I need to change saws...

 

Our drill presses must be related--mine was a wimp with very little vertical displacement.  It was this problem that forced me to do my cuts from the outside first to the inside last (so I could easily measure to make sure I was still centered--could not measure centers if my reference points were hidden by the hole saw cup).

 

If I could do it again (I say that as if there were anything stopping me aside from my own laziness), I would have used slightly larger diameters of hole saw for my outer cuts.  Hole saws are indexed by the diameter of the hole that they leave, in lieu of the diameter of the circle of material that ends up inside the hole saw.  For me, that meant that the outer diameters of my cups werejust small enough that the pins in the headphone's gimbals did not hold them securely.  This resulted in me having to pop out the plastic pins and replace them with a machine screw that was a tiny bit longer...Now every time I look at the headphones, I see those machine screws...

If I do the full woody on my sr325is, could I go back and install my metal cup if I decide I don't prefer the sound of the woody? since it's a full woody I think I'm going to have to remove the plastic shell/cup around the driver. therefore, how would I be able to install them bad into my metal cup?

You'd have to find someone to make the sleeve for you. Fleasbaby has recently started making his own wooden sleeves - maybe that'd be an option?

The more you turn over the wood the more trouble you get into. I try to make all my cuts on one side without turning over the wood. Although for some I have to make one cut on the outside lip and then I make the rest from the bottom. 

 

 

Yes.....it's taiden

LOL...so I noticed...much to my chagrin...I thought I had it all figured out to make the cuts from one side only on the last one...but then realized I had to move the wood to change the wretched hole saws out...oh well...am learning, slowly but surely...its obsessive fun.
