Oh snap! Your SR225s that were modded to look like HP1000s? I really do hope that they will work eventually man.

Hmm, how about an hour in the oven at 50 degrees celsius? I don't think that "heat" (can't really call it that hot, right?) will affect the drivers.

Let them dry properly. Which may take several days unless you open them up and put in a warm place.
Hopefully they work again. If not, then I guess its time to cure the upgraditis.

You're one step ahead of the Bose guys. Bose headphones melt when they get wet.

Open them up, sit them near a return grille for your air conditioners fan coil unit or on top of your refrigerator near the back. The heat from the refrigerator condenser on the back of the refrigerator is just warm enough to dry out pretty much anything in about a day.

Once washed and dryed, completely, an iPod Nano. I let it sit in a window for 2 weeks and it fired right up. Still use it to this day. Guarantee if I had tried starting it up any sooner and it would've cooked itself.

Putting the cups/drivers and cable (minus the headband) into a bag of rice could have helped. The rice acts as a desiccant and draws the water out. Or of course you can always use desiccant, if you have access to decent amounts of it, but rice is pretty commonly available. I used this method on a couple of small electronic devices that got a dunking, with good results.

Sort of on topic: My friend used to have a job repairing pagers, and he kept latex exam gloves handy for the beepers that were labeled with the note, "Got Wet". He said he estimated most of those had been dropped in a toilet, thus the gloves for the repair work.

soak it in silica gel for a week should do the trick

The conductivity of the water is of no concern, water isn't a very good conductor (pure water isn't at all) and there is nothing to short out in headphones, they are just a coil of insulated wire and a magnet.

What is a problem is the corrosiveness of the water, it'll eat away at the exposed parts and make a good mess of it, especially around the driver and voice coil, I woudn't worry at all about the cable or plug end
