Those drivers can be damaged easily. You may want to do something like this to protect them:

So, I decided to go further, and take off foam from back sides, then place it inside the earcup right behind the unprotected driver (with no stock grill on it). Now they're not over ear, but on ear. Also i take that cheap and sticky surface from cushions - now they felt like velour, very comfortable! They finally sound better now, and everyone who have UR40 can do this mod for free.

This is an old thread but I just found this today. 

 

Finally cracked open a brand new pair of KSC 75 I've had lying around for years in the package. Wow, impressed for $15. Should have tried them years ago. Don't even remember when I purchased them.

 

Anyways, stumbled on this thread. 

 

Question.  I see that the Kramer mod  includes drilling holes in the driver protector. 

 

Anywone simply just rip out the protector itself and then leave it bar, and just use the Sennheiser PX200 ear covers?  Should be enough to protect it.  I'd think this this takes the kramer drilling mod to its logical conclusion - removing the entire protector, and then just add a ear cover that provides some distance from the driver. 

 

Anyways, anyone try this and can report the results? 

 

Thanks,

ULUL

As per my post just a few above, I put a metal grille over the driver, which I think is an option similar to what you are suggesting:
