I don't know about the Pro 10. I know Ratshack borrowed drivers from KOSS for their Realistic Nova 40 model... 

 

If you can get the headphone apart easily, you could play around with the damping a bit. A recable might be in order as old headphones are infamous for bad cables, and while cables can't improve sound, they can certainly make it worse.

 

However, if they're working fine I'd just leave them alone personally.

Yes, I shall get pictures up in a few minutes.

 

They're Still in pretty decent condition! I just untangled the cable, still works, but I have to constantly move the cable around a bit to get them to work on both sides. Or maybe it was the jack haha

 

The sound quality isn't all that impressive, so I was planning to get someone to switch out the drivers for me as I'm not all that great at opening up headphones!

 

If I can't manage to apply any mods of affordable prices, I might just sell them. Don't know much they would go for though...

The picture wasn't focused properly, but then again, it's on a 8 year old camera..

As you may have noticed, the cable is a bit spread apart at the top half due to it being tangled beforehand. 

 

 

A close up!

That actually might be an AKG OEM.

 

Or, judging by the cable, it could have some series 3 KOSS Pro drivers in there.. which would explain the not-so great sound.

Oh dear, well! at least I now know the problem hahaha

 

How much would these sell for? or how much would mods for it be?

That's a version of the NAD12 (if I remember correctly), a beautiful and comfortable headphone with dated sound. I posted about that one somewhere on this site, but can't remember where.

Couldn't find my post, but another one:

And here's some pics I took before I sold them. The pads can be removed by turning anti-clockwise (but be careful- the old foam is delicate).

Then please do continue, if anyone know how to mod these, what price would that come as? 

 

I'm interested in giving them better drivers, but I'm an absolute novice when it comes to the tool usage!

Anyone here willing to sell a spare CD850 housing cup?

Ouch! Looks to me like your other headphones are jealous of an old-timer!

Yeah frown.gif

 

Don't know how they got squashed as each headphone is in it's own foamed pouch I had my CD950's sitting on top of these. I'm hoping MDR30 or ourfpshero can chime in if they have a spare 850 willing to let go.
