Yeah my cousin said he wanted to take a little break today and then later on tonight do up both cups. He said he wasn't quite sure how they fit at first and made a lot of mistakes.

Well that's the only way to perfect your process, trial and error.

I am in the process of designing a woodie version of Hd800 meets T1's. The whole headphones are going to be easier to make then the single cups for denon 2000's. When the core is done I'm going to send them to you to do your magic.

This isn't entirely about the DX000 line, but it relates - So the metallic sound I mentioned with my D2Ks, I noticed I hear it in the Fostex TH600s as well, though definitely not as much. If I'm playing loud music for example and then instantly mute the audio via Windows 7 mute, or really just in some tracks without extra effort -- I can hear it. It's like I am hearing the residual compression sound or something after the drivers have expanded to pump out the audio. Exact same metallic tinge as my D2Ks, but it subsides much faster where as the Denons ring for just a few ms longer. 

 

Is this a fault in the DX000/THX00 lines, inherent nature of closed-back cans, or maybe just something my ears are sensitive to? Happens with or without my amp, regardless of audio source. The only other headphones I have are the Sennheiser PX-100s, and I do not hear this metallic sound at all with them.

 

As it was one of the primary reasons I decided to invest in the TH600s, I'm considering returning them now.

 

I think I have heard something similar.  I hear it the most when I turn the volume up or down on my Macs.  The ting that is used for the volume has a bit of a metallic sound, or even echoing to it.  It's really hard to explain what it sounds like.  I have never heard it on any other headphones or IEM's.

Congrats buddy!  What wood is that?  And let me know if you need assistance with the pad install.

They look amazing. My only question is I was looking up woods online I remember a few people saying Cocobolo is considered toxic. Not sure how much truth there is to that.

Austrillian Sheok I think, as far as tone goes, Mark said he thinks it'a a Tone 3 Wood [or Neutral] Cocobolo was a Tone 4 [dry harder sound] so hopefully the Dampend Sheok will sound better than the Cocobolo D2k I had, it should though as I belive those cups [they look it anyways] r a smidge deeper than stock 

 

N I might just do that, it seems simple enough though. Remove the Toothed Pad Holder, slap on pads under the teeth, reinstall toothed holder. Can't b any harder than the Hifiman Pads [those little teeth are  pain] or the W1000x
