@TopPop:

Nice headphone stands. Your own creations?

I think I might just have to pick up a pair of these and check them out for myself.

Thanks! ...but I can't really take credit for these.

They're just banana hooks from Walmart, with the hook sawed off. They're less than $5 a pop, and I really like the pattern of the sandwiched wood, as well as the curve of the neck. Perfect for resting headphones on!

Here's a picture of a similar device in use:

Yeah, except for the fact that I was only concentrating on finding a quick pic of a similar banana hook when I posted the picture... and failed to recognize that the fruit itself looks like #@%$.

Looks like Amazon is sending the Dynamat in a separate package, which shipped out today, so I will be doing the permanent mods as soon as the sheets come, and will post pictures and impressions here!

I did some more listening tonight with the temporary mods... and I'd be hard pressed to say that I've ever heard Holly Cole's voice sound this realistic before. These are simply phenomenal cans for the money when modified to compensate for their drawbacks. Really amazing.

Looking forward to some thoughts on this mod.

1) Could you post pics while you do that final mod for people who are new at modding (i.e. me)?
2) Would a newb to modding be able to do these mods?

Wow, quicker shipping than I had expected: the Dynamat just came in this morning!

I will do the mods on the HA-RX900 tomorrow (or possibly later today if I have enough time), and will post a detailed guide with plenty of pictures.

I'm so stoked right now...

I'm thinking of replacing the cord on my RX900s (with thicker wire).
Drilling a hole in the bottom of the right speaker, so as to have the wires coming out of the bottom of each speaker (the Denon look).
Anyone have an input or helpful ideas for this project.
